RAMPS 1.4 vs. Ultimaker Board 1.5.7

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I want to build my own Ultimaker. I tried to find out whats the difference between the 2 boards, but i didn't get it by just reading the raprap Wiki.

Can someone explain the difference? Will the Ultimaker Software Run with the RAMPS? Do I need to modify the Board? Will it work with an thermocouple?

Thanks for any help

Yes and Yes. You will need to modify the pinout to suit. Apart from that, it will work just fine. If you are planinning to use the genuine Ulticontroller, you will need to make some changes to the wires here, as it's a smidgen different than the Reprap-controllers.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
