Posted · Upgrade the UM2+ Connect with previous UM2+ controller

Since the UM2+ Connect is incompatible with the previous UM2+ model, we are looking for a way to avoid reslicing hundreds of STL models for the Connect so we can expand our production capacity like we used to do with adding UM2+ printers.

 

Does anyone have an idea whether it would work to replace the Connect controller and control panel with the controller of an UM2+? I would think that, if the motors, heaters and sensors are the same, this should work. We can print an enclosure for the UM2+ display panel.

    The stepper motors are different, but not sure if it would also work with the old controller.

    But before you do that, I think it is easier to buy an old UM2+
