Geeetech A30M rebuilt with Duet2wifi

 

The motherboard of my Geeetech A30M was broken, due to a defective Y-axis motor as I experienced later.  I ordered a new Smartto motherboard from Geeetech, installed it and it broke down again, due to the shortcut in the Y motor. Very strange defect since the smartto board uses plug-in drivers.  However, unrepairable and a real pity to now be stuck with 2 smartto boards without any use for them with both having a defect on the Y output.   Exchanging drivers did not help, cables exchange did not help either…

After replacing the Y-motor,I decided to go for a complete rebuild of the A30M.  In the old files you can still see the original smartto experiences on the A30M HERE.

Get my  A30M config.g for reprap 3 Duet2wifi  for the original mixing hotend (1 nozzle, 2 extruders).
