Description

In case you want to keep using the rail system (U2RS) and want to upgrade to the new + feeder I published a simple bracket.
Upgrading is pretty easy, specially when you reuse the feeder motor.

Get all parts for the feeder at your local distributor.
Your feeder motor needs to have the D-shaped axis to be able to reuse it.

  • get the feeder parts at you local reseller.
  • Print the bracket
  • Mount the feeder (when you reuse it, you have to cut about 8mm off the axis off the old motor, or use a thicker mounting plate), you need 4x M3x10 to mount the motor

Upgrade the firmware to Tinker 16.03.1

Change the e steps from E282 to E564, with the fantastic @tinkergnome firmware you do this in preferences/motion settings.
