Ultimaker Original Plus+ with Dual Extrusion

Recommended Posts

I am making my Ulimaker original plus dual extrusion and I was told that I can't have the second hot end and the heated bed on at the same time or it will draw more power than is supplied. So, is this the case? I also plan to add a second fan mod. I have a second main board as X-Axis on it doesn't work. If I get another power supply could I modify the firmware so that the 2 boards work in tandem. If I can connect the main boards in tandem and mod the firmware then I could make it Quad Extrusion and could use 1 of the axis' stepper motors to control raising and lowering the active/inactive hot end as needed!

Thx Arie

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
