Geeetech Upgrade to "PRUSA MK3s Bear"

Post by core2k » Fri May 14, 2021 7:59 pm

Build a "Prusa MK3s Bear" and reused a lot of parts from my old Geeetech Printer.

What you can use from the old printer:

- linear rods
- heater cartridge
- temp sensors
- nozzle
- bearings
- lead screws and nuts
- nema motors
- motor cables
- endstops
- lcd
- gt2560 board
- gt2 belts
- pulleys
- fans
- stepper driver
- some m3 nuts, screws and cables
- 3D-Touch sensor (if you have one)

What I bought:

- v-slot 20x40
- heated bed
- hotend (E3DV6) + extruder gears
- 24 volt power supply

Had to do some adaptations but now the printer works like charm! Printer is running with Marlin 1.1.9.1 + Octoprint.
I think this is a good way to upgrade your old Geeetech Printers and bring them back to life.
