I tried. X/Y shafts 6mm of the head are shorter on umo+. You would need new shafts for that (github um2 has the info).

Imo, the twisterblocks are just as good or better, and they are great a with a gt2 upgrade :)

Other problem of using that on umo, it's that you need a gt2 (belt entry it's 5mm on um2) and you need the correct springs (that I got and they are uber weak imo).

So to use them you need gt2 5mm same as um2, inner spring tensioner, new x/y head shafts.

    Also a side note. If you want to use them to gain print area, forget about it. Been there done that.

    To gain print area on umo you would need a new head carriage, like the um2 and that sideblocks with all the extra stuff. It can be done ofc. But it has its costs.

    Yea i think you are right maybe not much to gain over all considering the work. I think ill just stick to the GT2 upgrade as you suggested.

    Thanks!

        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
