upgrade ultimaker 2 to 2+ without changing the mainboard

Posted · upgrade ultimaker 2 to 2+ without changing the mainboard

Hi,

I was searching on the forum but I didn’t find an answer. Probably my method of searching is wrong.

Is possible to upgrade my printer to a ultimaker2+ with only changing the feeder.

Can I use the original main board and update the firmware to the ultimaker2+ ?

If so, is it just updating the firmware to 2+ via cura 2.6….. or did I need to make modifications with the arduino software?

Thanks in advance,

There is an upgrade kit, you change the extruder + hotend and all the cabling.

Everything is included.

After installing you download the new firmware, and you are on a 2+

No changes to mainboard.

Thanks for the reply RudydG

I already have an olsson block, and customized cooling fans. So when I buy a feeder I'm done with it?

Can I just update the firmware via cura to ultimaker2+?

It depends a little on the feeder you buy, but basically: yes on both questions. If it does not work, you can also easily flash an ultimaker2 firmware back. And finally, you can also tell Cura you have an Ultimaker 2+ while still using the Ultimaker 2 firmware.
