So you bought the feeder box on a china/ebay ?

If so you need to use the um2+ estep number * 2. Because um2 extruder motor is 400 step/rev and um2+ motor is 200 steps/rev.

So, search on this forums how to change the esteps on a um2. You will need to use um2+ esteps number * 2 and search how to change the esteps.

Cheap always means more work. Have fun modding!

    Indeed sounds about right.

    I don't mean that you got it on china, just that probably the accuracy of the gears might give you trouble (or not). Check everything and remember to apply green lube between the plastic gears like um does on his.

    Btw if you buy from china better use aliexpress, they have some methods to get some cash back if the seller sells a bad part. If you want to have fun read my adventures on china shops:

    Wow. That sucks. Clearly china clones ain't safe. But the main trick with aliexpress is not to vote and test the part as soon it arrives, then you have time to open a dispute before accepting that all arrived.

    Hallo. Could you tell at which capacitors you get 2 sparks?

    I just receive new motherboard from China, connect it, turned on, and I have abnormal printer behavior. Led screen is off, and and all motors vibrating.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (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.
