HBK-old gcode files?

Posted · HBK-old gcode files?

I have the heated bed kit installed on my Ultimaker Original and it works great.

The start up movement was a surprise…. sooo fast… But used to that now.

But

I have a SD card with a lot of files that I use often for presentations and so.

Do I have to rewrite the gcode for everything in Cura again because of the new firmware?

Of course the bed will not work, but what if you start or make gcode with the 'original machine' and sent it to a heated bed upgrade (UMO-hbk)?

And

at my work I still have the UMO without the hbk.

What if I forget that Cura was set to the 'new hbk machine' and send that generated gcode to the UMO?

    A 'old' cold code to a HBKit works fine, you need to set and preheat the Bed temp, by hand, but after finishing the print, the bed cools down.

    A HB file to a cold bed, I have not tried..... yet......
