I'll ask this another way.


Is it possible to use an UM3 printhead on a UM2?


I know the wiring is different with the pcb in the print head but surley the other end of the cable could be adapted to the UM2.

    Sure , I did both already 🙂 at least a proof of concept, never got to really publishing stuff...




    I did make a better version of the single core head, using a single core bottom plate 3d printed in metal (shapeways), but I never really documented it properly..... always a lack of time and starting to many new projects 🙂
