Hey community!

I had an idea. Can i use the Ultimaker 2 hardware to make an UM2extended ?

My idea was to change the frame and the Z axis.

Then i load the Firmware from an Extended on the Circuit board.

thanks.

    Depends how old your machine is I guess....and if you have the 2+ upgrade kit all wires are long enough. I assume all new PT100's are also only with long wires (don't know, but i guess there's only one type).

    Most wires you can just extend, solder and extra piece to it.

    If you want to see how much extra length you have just take of the electronics cover....
