An alternative to buying a bad kit for $300-500

Hi all,

I'm on the same page, picked up a very little used cubepro duo and eight sealed pla and abs cartridges for £355.

Very impressed with the mechanics, less so with everything else....even prints are not too good and you can't really tinker.

So i will probably remove all the existing controls and replace.

I have an airwolf axiom that i have modified and that now prints like a champ. I fitted a touchscreen to replace the horrible vkiki2

And so I may just fit a rambo board and be done with it,..i don't think it will ever be fast enough to require more than an 8 bit controller...any thoughts?

best regards and stay tuned!

Looks like a steal at that price. Used one I just looked up was $800US.

Looks like a CoreXY ? I'd just toss a ramps in there (cause thats what I have), recode the firmware and try it.

What kind of extruder setup is in there?

Don't think I've done too badly!

I'll probably go with rambo board, i don't think it needs 32bit

it's not corexy, the extruders are similar to bog standard mk10.
I might even change the hotends to e3dv6..

Perhaps making a .ZIP of everything and hosting it in MEGA or similar cloud service?

Hi Dancook,
I've recently gotten my hands on a 3D Printer (Cube 3) and as you know it can only print ABS and PLA. I'd really like to print TPU and was wondering if you would help me understand (in detail) what I would need to do this? I'm very new with 3D printers, so as detailed as possible would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks
