E3d V6 modfications for umo+

Recommended Posts

Posted · E3d V6 modfications for umo+

Hello, i installed E3d V6 hot end with mk8 feeder ( bowden Design) for my umo+ but i have many problems with the extruder movement , leaking , escaping problem with the feeder what am i supposed to modify ?

 now that it goes further than heat bed area sometimes , it moves so fast sometimes making the belt vibrates , acting up during printing , is that a firmawre problem ?

and what are the modifcations  for the firmware to make my umo+  work proberly with that extruder

Just out of curiosity, did you purchase an original E3d V6? I am also planning on this, so I am curious as to the top temperature you can reach with the Head. 

 

As to your issue, did you change the extrusion rate? The MK8 feeder dumps much more filament per rotation than the original feeder (I use a combination of the two, so I didn't have to recompile the firmware for that modification). What changes did you make to the firmware regarding build plate size? Travel distances are defined in the Firmware (Configuration.h) with :

#define X_MIN_POS 0
#define Y_MIN_POS 0
#define Z_MIN_POS 0
#define X_MAX_POS 205
#define Y_MAX_POS 205
#define Z_MAX_POS 200
