Posted · The Mark 2 Modification is it still supported

Have slowly gathered all parts except for wiring , to do the Mark 2 Mod, I use s3D will this mod work with this software, or am I forced to use Cura,, I notice that it seems to have died down from the initial rush of Blood, which I think is a pity.. is there still development on this mod before I hack my UM2.. just want to be sure it will work and be something that is being developed.

    Sure. Everyone involved is still around. Ofc everyone has a day job.... But you can safely go one with the mod.. even if you would have to wait a while for an answer your single extrusion ability stays just as is.

    And yes you can use s3d.

    And also... Yes there is still development. Did you see the zge version?

    just make sure you have an Ultimaker mainboard with 5 stepper drivers installed.but

    Don't really get that, are you saying make sure I have a spare board in case I blow it OR are you saying count the drivers and make sure it original UM board??

    And also... Yes there is still development. Did you see the zge version?

    Your board is fine. Some of the newest um2 are missing components of the 5th stepper driver. Ultimaker claims they had to do that due to lack of components.

    But your board is fine. You can see it has solder at the back where the 5th driver is.

    For the zge... It looks assom but is a much bigger makeover... I suggest you try the normal Mark2 first. Search for zge mark2 on this forum for more info... (On my phone... To hard to find a link..)
