Additional costs for ES?

Post by Napomex » Thu Feb 21, 2019 6:58 pm

Hello,
after I was very active in building and optimizing 3D printers years ago (in times of reprap ;) ) I want to get back into the topic ready to use this time. :D
Since ABS is the only useful material for me, I came across the up.
What confuses me are the 250€ more for the model with ES.
does the new control with update function have an added value of 250€ ?

I'd rather spend the extra €250 on a Duet controller board instead - and benefit from the open RepRap firmware and all the settings you can dream about.

Although, you'll want to verify you can print ABS as expected before voiding your warranty - a couple of reports of printers having trouble getting up to temperature, and my bed has severe temperature gradient across it. Gonna replace the bed after I'm done installing my Duet Maestro in my Up mini 2.
