"Larger build plate-UM2" with mark2upgrade

Recommended Posts

Posted · "Larger build plate-UM2" with mark2upgrade

Hi experts,

I am thinking of building a larger printer using the Jennyprinter 4x340 as mechanical base. Build size would be 340 x 220mm. 

I intend to use Ultimaker 2 electronics and also upgrade to mark2 dual extrusion.

My question is: Do I need a special version of the firmware or is it sufficient to adjust the size in Cura? 

Thanks

Gunther

You also need to adjust the size in the printer, but in the "Tinker mark2" firmware you can just do this from the menu, so I don't think that should be a problem.

 

edit; and I assume you use UM2 electronics because you have it laying around already? otherwise it's probably smarter to look at a Duet3D board...

I have my "UMO 2+" with mark2, which is beside the wooden frame an UM2.. 

And then I only have one interface. Can Duet be used with Tinker mark2 firmware??

No, you can't run Ultimaker firmware on a duet board, but you also don't want that. the duet firmware is really good and open for easy modification, you'll just have to setup a few macro's for the tool change g-code. probably others have done it already...

 

There's plenty benefits to use a duet over an Ultimaker board, to name a few, the machine will be network connected, and have newer stepper driver which make the machine much quieter.
