In theory: yes. In practice: not so much.

 

Tinker firmware is based on the Ultimaker 2 firmware. The Ultimaker 2 firmware is a "branch" off the Marlin firmware. Lots of changes were made to the Ultimaker 2 firmware, and lots of changes were made to Marlin. It would be a LOT of work to combine the changes that were made to Marlin for the Ultimaker 2 firmware back into the "mainline" Marlin 2 firmware, and the chances of introducing new bugs are substantial.

 

If you don't mind not using UltiGcode (ie: specifying material in the slicer instead of on the printer), you could make a version of Marlin 2.0 that controls your Ultimaker printer. Getting the display to work may be tricky.

@stephenbo Just wondering, what kind of 32-bit are you planning to use for the UM2? Most likely the connectors used in the UM2 won't fit. Are you then going to change the connectors?

Nice board. Just verify that it can drive the front LCD and SD card reader if you want to keep this original.

 

For the LCD you need an I2C connection and for the SD card an SPI connection available. From the comparison chart with v1.1 it looks like those two interfaces are not present on the v1.3 board.
