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..
