Printrbot Maker to Metal Upgrade from Printrbot 2014

Postby pantseatflyer » 2014-Dec-Tue-11-Dec

I purchased a Printrbot 2014 last year. I upgraded to the XL version several months later and it works great. I never upgraded to the 1405, but did purchase GT2 pullys and belts for an upgrade, but have not applied them.

I got in on the Black Friday Sale and purchased the Maker to Metal Upgrade along with the auto level probe and have a few questions.

Are there instructions included? I don't see any Maker to Metal upgrades instructions on the Printrbot website. Parts wise, I should be good, as I have the pullys, belts, the auto level and Z coupler on order. Do I need longer wiring since I upgraded last year to the XL or am I good?

Just trying to get all my ducks in a row to make sure I have everything needed to start the build.

Thanks much!

The XL kit gives the needed wires to function as the metal normally would. No need to grab extras if you don't have the extended z end stop as well as the extruder, and z probe wires. If not a simple tweet to the guys at printrbot and you can have them quickly.

You should be good!
