Upgrading UMO to UMO+?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Upgrading UMO to UMO+?

Good afternoon everyone.  

 

My much loved UMO has been idle now for a year, everything is being handled by the UM3/3X.   I'm faced with either selling the unit as is or potentially upgrading it. 

 

I purchased this second hand, it had an attempt at a heated table and the Z screw is not ultimaker OEM.  It prints fine, in some ways still more accurately and quickly than the UM3.  That said, I haven't had much luck finding an official heated bed mod for it and firmware mods are complicated by the Z screw.

 

I (perhaps mistakenly) wonder if the quickest path is to update this to UMO+ if possible.   Is that practical?

 

The other direction is simply to sell it at a discount to someone who knows what they are doing with Ultimakers, so they can apply mods themselves.

 

Thoughts?  Thanks!

 

John
