Benefits of Upgrade

Post by iomega » Wed Mar 14, 2012 5:41 pm

Hello everyone,

I've recently purchased an Up! and am learning quite a bit from reading these [very helpful!] forums. However, I'm trying to better understand the benefits of upgrading to the new motherboard, other than the addition of the on/off and initialize buttons. Does anybody have direct comparison of print quality before and after the upgrade? (On the same machine without any other modifications made at the same time as the upgrade, preferably for the same printed part).

I've read a lot about the extruder motor running hotter and the issues caused by that, so there are certainly downsides to the upgrade. There's also some talk about this hardware change enabling the possibility of one day being able to adjust temperatures from SW, but the fact is that that's not available at this time. Therefore, I'm looking for direct results of what benefits the upgrade provides you at this time. Would love to see some before/after comparison pictures.

Thanks!
