Possible to upgrade bed only?


Is it possible to first upgrade only the bed to mk52 and later on the electronics cover and extruder ?

The printers are actually running 24/24 and I'd like to do the bed upgrade as it'll help a lot with production of parts but the extruder is not really necessary for now. I plan do do the extruder update later when I got my additional printers.

Is it possible or is there some conflicts ? (like with the current probe,... or with firmware,...) ?

Hi 3DVS,

the new 12V heatbed for MK2.5 has a different set of calibration points, therefore XYZ calibration won't work with different firmware. You calibrate the printer on MK42 heatbed, swap it to MK52 12V and only change the live adjust z, but I won't recommend this on a production printer.

Thanks @jakoob ! That was the kind of answer I was looking for

I'll wait till my curent jobs list is empty then I'll take time to properly update to 2.5!


What if I installed the MK2.5 heatbed on my MK2S MMU and updated the firmware to MK2.5? Someone on the Prusa Owners facebook group looked at the source code for the firmware and said that it still has all the references to the MMU multiplexers. If I upgrade the firmware without doing the rest of the physical upgrades, what else might go wrong?
