I heard the new heated build platform will require a 1.5.7 board to be installed. I am very curious what this will mean for older hardware and, more importantly, what this will mean for associated costs and/or whether the older boards can be adapted to perform too.

 

I cannot say a lot about this. but the heated bed upgrade will work with all the 1.5.4 and upwards boards.

If you can flash the latest firmware to your board, you can install the heated bed upgrade.

If you can not flash the latest firmware, you have an incredibly old and rare ultimaker and you should be very proud of it. Because there might only be around a 100 machines out there. The kit might not work out of the box. but being one of the first and having to flash your custom firmware already there is a very big chance you'll be able to make it work.

    Does mean better support for everyone (as Europe support is less busy fixing the US shipping problems). It's great for US customers, it's good for everyone else.

    But, there will also be UMOP and HBK. Sort of half-announced right now.
