@dadoblu_2000 Thank you. But I don't understand chinese and I think that are more of us. So... links with internation shipping would be highly appreciated.

hello, yes Chinese is difficult, you can use eighth notes and use an online translator, after this you use superbuy or any other brokerage service, they think all their international shipments, I'm just waiting for the goods purchased for modification to arrive  to DXU via DHL

Have a browse in the menu on the printer, there is an option called motor invert or something similar. You can invert the E2 motor there.

Yes, thank you very much, I had not thought of checking the menu of the printout, I am also making the modification to the extruder doing the B2D, the steppers relating to the motor are already set in the DXU firmware or I have to replace them based on the formula you indicate in the project and above all how do I insert them permanently in the firmware?

The default esteps is for stock extruder. You do need to change it. The estep value can also be set through the menu.

Stock fan is 25*25*7, you might need a 3mm packer to fit it nicely. 

But be aware that Fan Cover 2510 is not compatible with Fan Shroud 3510. It's a legacy model to be used with Shroud 3015. 

Only Fan Cover 3010 works with Shroud 3510.

Good to know. Thanks! Great work here by the way.

yyh1002,

 

The Hot End Assembly has PFTE Tubing through the heat sink and shaft above it.

 

Do you know of an all metal alternative? In case I want to go higher temp?

 

Thanks,

Bigrjsuto

The PI insulator allows to print up to 290 degrees with PTFE.

After looking at the comments, and seeing the September delivery estimates for the parts req'd based on the BOM, I realized I actually have an extra S3 (Unused) printhead assembly which I'd needed for my S3, but haven't gotten around to installing it. 

 

Now wondering, would the S3 printhead be an easy mod for my UM2+ or should I just go with the BOM and order the necessary parts?

 

Really amazing work btw.. I almost feel like I owe it to your efforts and should just build this DXU project rather than cheating with my surplus S3 Printhead. 😉

Hi netminder,

 

The UMS3 use 8mm shaft for the print head, while UM2/2+ use 6mm shaft for the print head.

So there might be some issues here..

As far as I know, the UM3 use 6mm shafts.

Edited.

 

Just for your info.

Well, good luck with your modification.

 

Thanks

Torgeir
