Hello everyone,

Seeking help to configure the firmware for the UMO I'm in the process of converting  to use 1.75mm filament. I've upgraded to the following parts.

 

1. MK8  METAL EXTRUDER - https://www.banggood.com/3D-Printer-MK8-1_75mm-Remote-Extruder-Metal-Frame-Kit-For-Makerbot-Reprap-p-1070154.html?rmmds=search&cur_warehouse=CN

2. E3D V6 GENUINE NOZZLE - https://www.filastruder.com/collections/e3d-spare-parts-and-accessories/products/e3d-spare-nozzle-v6?variant=755000273

3. E3D V6 GENUINE HEATER BLOCK - https://www.filastruder.com/products/v6-volcano-cartridge-style-upgrade

4. E3D V6 GENUINE CATRIDGE TYPE THERMISTOR  - https://www.filastruder.com/products/v6-volcano-cartridge-style-upgrade?variant=20942512644

5. E3D V6 CLONE - HEAT BREAK AND HEATSINK

6. FULL GRAPHIC DISPLAY CONTROLLER  - https://folgertech.com/collections/lcd-displays/products/lcd-display-controller-12864-graphical-reprap-ramps-3d-printer-mendel-1

   I was able to get it working with Amedee's builder

7. CAPRICORN PTFE BOWDEN TUBE - https://www.filastruder.com/search?type=product&q=CAPRICORN

Here are some images of the changes that has been done.

    I'm not an expert, but I have reconfigured my Marlin a couple times. The following is how I would solve your issues - not specific instructions.

    After using a Marlin builder like Amedee'a Builder, I open the resulting configuration.h file and step thru all the settings making whatever further changes are necessary. As a nube, I step through every setting from top to bottom making sure I tick all the necessary boxes and none extra. It's a text file that is well commented with instructions on how to make the settings. I think you can edit it in any text editor, but maybe the Arduino app might be best. Another good tool is an editor that allows comparing 2 files at once. The one I used is called Winmerge. This helps making incremental changes as you work toward your final version.

    Not all of your listed hardware upgrades will directly affect your configuration.h. From what I see - and my nube experience level, you need to make changes for; the feeder steps and maybe direction, the thermistor, and the graphic display. I'm not sure if the heater itself would require any changes. I would be concerned about if the voltage and current requirements match or are compatible with the motherboard and/or the hardware being replaced.

    Best of luck. It doesn't seem there are many people available who do these kind of tasks for pay. Its as likely someone will come along and help you for free. In the end, you'll be better off doing it yourself.

    With your hot end being built up from new pieces, it would be a good idea to establish new PID parameters for your nozzle after everything is up and running. I would have to search up the method to run the test, and write the settings to the controller. It can be done by Gcode sent thru USB/Pronterface. That is how I did it.

    Thank you for your reply. I will connect it to pronterface and take a snap shot and post it here. I agree with what you said about making firmware changes for the EStesp, thermistor type and graphic display. Hope to gets some tips once when I post the firmware settings.

      • 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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
