Chimera+ on CreatBot
April 13, 2019 06:54AM
I just bought a used CreatBot printer, which comes with two 2.85 mm hotness. Now, I have always used 1.75 filaments, I wanted to change the two things with a Chimera+, which seems to merge the double extruder and the 1.75mm filaments request.
My question is, would it be ok to just change the two extruders and the PTFE tubes, and then put some settings on Cura or RepetierHost? Should I change the firmware as well? From what I see on the LCD display, the motherboard runs Marlin, but I tried to look at it better and I cannot understand which model it is.

One last thing, in order to change the extruders, I have to disassemble the extruders already on the printer. Do you know how to take the rods away? I also saw some mounts for the Chimera on the Ultimaker 2+, do you know it they will fit?

Thanks a lot for the help! I will post the picture of both printer and motherboard, maybe you recognise them. Thanks!
