    Excellent, I know exactly where I can do it. One thing done.

    For the MKS Gen. I have reread the original post.. with the MKS G and the 2130, I can directly connect all the parts?

    Fan
    Endstop
    Extruder
    Motor
    Lights
    Hot end
    thermistor?

    I think if you gone use the original Cube hotends you can use. Beware the fans are 12V, the big ones can handle the 24V, but the little ones dont and the led light i put on 12V power source. like Cucurutxo did.

    if you gonna change to e3D V6, buy everything for 24V

    M8, what Vref did you use on step motor ??

    Y axis is inverted so you need to connect Y endstom to Ymax. This way you won't need to Y mirror your prints in cura.

    After struggling to achieve a consistent first layer once and again on the ultrabase, I realized that cube pro hotends are pretty bad fot this surface. Since you need to push the fist layer into the base so it sticks fine, and cube hotends have much surface and less angle on the tip than regular hotends, they are prone to drag already placed material with them and ruin the first layer. After all it, it already was one of the pains in the a** with the original cube base and cube glue.
    So... I took the easy way, turend the ultrabase, and started printing on glass with hair laquer, and piece of cake.

    Maybe I will give the ultrabase a second chance if I install a E3D hotend I have laying arrouond.

    Tks cucurutxo

    He have done a amazing job on wiring and helping on the Marlin Software.

    BTW if i use this on Pins.h

    the MArlin star to use another Pins to read temperature ??
    Because i think i ruin my temp pin , he always reading 265, whit prob or without prob :S

    The code i change are on RED

    My field is fabrication, so my mariln config is pretty basic, just to have the machine running acording to specs. Optimizing the firmware is a bit difficult for me, but it can be a starting point.

    SixNix, nice adaptation on the hotends. I machined one longer E3D-like coldend on cooper but I wont be using it for the moment, sine I am getting to print better with the cube one. I have it at work, I'll post a picture as it reopens.

    Josh, my recommendation is not ti get reed of the original XH2.54 connectors, they fit fine on the mks. I made the mistake to recrimp them to dupont when I was going to use a mega and ramps, but then much later I decided to go for the mks. The only connector that could need to be modified is the endsops, because mks is for 3 pins.
    Besides that, my recomendation is to get reed of the heater, it is whak always ends burnig electronics up on cube printers. Too hot and too close.
    With the light I decided to manage the with a couple of with swiches, and connect them directly to the 12v PSU. I didn't like the idea of needing to go through the touchscreen to turn them on and off.
    BOM... depends on your components. If you do not have hotbed, you don't need the SSR for the bed. If you go for a 24v hotend, use mosfet or ssr DC-DC. If you want to use the original hotends, add a stepdown to use them 19V (at least it is the measurment I got froma working cube).

    Other materials, I would have actually done it different if I there had been no lockdown, but I had to use what I had at home. Specially not satisfied with wiring, but I only had bits that remaint from other works. I now have to start using CAT net cable, but I guess it will work.

    - - - - - - - - - -

    I guess you'll have to redefine the thermistor. it is now set for a 200k and the E3D is a 100 ohm NTC (at least the chinese clone is). Give a try with number 60.

    Are you using mks gen l Boards?
    Not the sgen or another 32bit Board?

    - - - - - - - - - -

    Just go with fysetc s6, you Power the Board with steady 24v and IT has 3 controllable Fans (each with jumper select 12/24v) and rgb (12/24v), and bed in and out...
    Im into rebuilding my second cube3 using this Board...

    Hy m8.

    Im waiting for the new board to arrive. S:
    and for now testing whit my old MKS Base V1.4

    Almost Everything done. All Wiring is done now only config.
    Got something edited, Tomorrow going to try print something to check steps D

    The 8bit Board would only be an Option to use with octoprint so that the raspberry pi 3 does All The calculations, you would be than able to print using Wireless and if you got a spare usb camera, observe your print process and make timelapse videos
    Just my 5c
