Ultimaker 2+ - Upgrade Board

Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker 2+ - Upgrade Board

What are the chances that Ultimaker (or a 3rd party) will release an upgraded control board for the 2+ that hasWiFi/Ethernet and the same "Cura Connect" type firmware that the Ultimaker 3 has? 


I have both the 2+ and the 3, and like the ability to connect to the printer from a web browser to check on the prints.

It's most likely not going to happen. The reason is the fact that the Ultimaker 3 actually has two boards, one being the Olimex board with all the connectivity stuff like WiFi etc. on it and the other one called motion controller being an upgraded version of the UM2+ mainboard. While the Olimex board is run by a Linux image the motion controller board is driven by an older Marlin version.

But you might want to check Octoprint for your UM2+.
