Upgrade A10M to A10T

Post by Ricky1966 » Thu Oct 24, 2019 10:50 pm

Hi everybody. Someone knows how to upgrade A10M to A10T? I know the board is the same, GT2650 v 3, but must solder a connector up E2 driver's slot. Which is the hotend? Which is the firmware... Could you explain me more info?

The easiest way is to sell A10M and buy A10T. Or buy A10T and you will get two printers.
A10M Slic3r profile: here and fresh on github (lot of tips here)
A10 Slic3r profile: here
TIP: tight all screws and wheels (except right side of Z axis) and re-align frame while assembly. And silence it.

I do not find the mixing extruder of the A10M pointless. It can be a lot of fun when it works as intended.

Currently at 400$, the A10T makes it quite expensive for 'just' a third extruder (and indeed a triple mixing chamber).

It is possible to add filament switch, aka Y-adapter. But you need 1 more extruder and 4P2T switch or do it electronically (driven by pushbutton on far axis end etc). 4x 1P2T Relay and pushbutton "brick" 2P2T on the far end of X axis is the simplest option. Driven by gcode....

Ok. I've change prospettive. Do you think is possibile to "attach" Prusa MMU2 to GT2650 V3 board? So, I only change hotend (isn't stricktly needed) and work multicolor

Geee, add some "vertex" chamber into hotend mixing "cube" to make mixed colours uniform.

And agree, dual colour printer is only for 1% of tasks. It is time consuuming to prepare models and slicing.

Mixer is great, but 3 colours is not enough!

Cyan
magenta
yellow
white
black
transparent
support material

and at least 3 "effects"
metallic fill
wood fill
glow fill
temperature changes
