Convert A30M to A30 Pro

Post by Deadeye » Mon Jan 11, 2021 2:20 pm

After not being able to resolve my stringing issues after having the A30M for over a year, as I think the issue is with having ooze issues with the dual filament hot end, I'm considering whether I can convert the A30M to a A30 Pro by replacing the head and updating the control board firmware to the A30 Pro's. I bought this printer as I thought I could use PVA as support, but William has already confirmed that this can't be used with PLA, and I've also been advised by a high end printer retailer that if PVA is in the same heat block as the PLA, it will burn out and clog if not being used, so for me a dual filament printer setup like this not suitable.
I assume Geeetech would try to keep parts as common as possible across a range.
As the A30M control board looks similar/same to the A30 Pro, and I assume the gantry is the same size/configuration, would it be relatively simple to swap the head and firmware and it work?
