Mainboard exchange on UM3


Recommended Posts

Posted · Mainboard exchange on UM3

Hi, 

Yesterday I bought a used Ultimaker 3 extended. As the seller wanted to show me the Printer, he accidently but in the power upside down. The Mainboard was damaged. Anyhow I bought the printer (for a reduced price) 
 

Some parts near the power switch burned. At least the Q4 = its4200s-me-n an some other parts - Multifuse F1.  Maybe also Q5 

 

As it look changing the board will be the fastest way. If I buy an Board (about € 250),  I read, that I have  to install the firmware and do some settings.

 

=> Where can I find the files and the description what to do?

=> Does a company sell a preconfigured MB? (can I order from Ultimaker or an UM-reseller) 

=> What I have to take care?

 

=> Any chance to repair the board? The parts may cost € 10
And  yes, I have the electronic double zero = license to drill (In Deutsch: Die Lizenz zum Löten) 

 

Thanks

    I would replace the board even if one could replace the electronic components since the burned surface might have become conductive and would still be a safety hazard.

    Ultimaker resellers should be able to get you a new board. You find all official resellers at ultimaker.com/resellers.

    As a side note, it really needs quite some force to connect the power plug the other way round.

    In addition to that, my one contribution to the hardware design of any Ultimaker 3d printer was the straight edge on the cutout for the power connector to match the flat face of the power connector. I feel defeated...
