E-steps UM2+ feeder with old UM2 motor

Recommended Posts

After researching I found most are recommending 738 steps using the old UM2 motor with the new UM2+ feeder. I built myself a UM2 clone and installed the new UM2+ feeder with the old motor and I'm running TinkerGnome software.

I'm still learning to dial it in but I was wondering if anyone would confirm 738 e-steps works well or has anyone found a better setting?

Thanks All!

Hi Labern.

I'm modding my UM2+ (upgraded from 2) with the Mark 2 second extruder, Downloading your modded 22mm um2+ housing to fit a 2nd um2+ feeder and um2 old motor.

Should I be using the above 738 e-step value in the firmware? Any thing else...how about to reverse the motor rotation?

Thank you in advance?
