    Yes, its very good, you have 64bit 1ghz processor doing All The math, no sd or usb, all its done via Wireless( push files) Installation is also straight forward

    What i also find good about it, you can controll your printer with anything in your Network that has a Web Browser on it(PC, Phone, TV...)

    On august 2018 I bought the best Cubepro you could find, one with burnt electronics. It was a real bargain.
    I have had no time to build it in almost two years, but now, being at home all day, has been the perfect moment.
    The idea was to go on with a sapre mega, ramps and DRVs I had, but at the end I decided to go for the MKS GEN L and 2130s,
    Since I consider that still today is one of the best mechanically built printers out there I decided to keep everythig as original as possible. Motors, endstops, fans, lights, extruders and hotends, and 24v PSU are kept.
    I added a 300x300 hotbed with a 220V 500W silicone mat with an SSR, and a 12V PSU for the board, fans and leds.
    24V PSU is used fot the extreuder with a stepdown to 19V.

    Everithig is a little messy at the moment, but I will start printing electronics supports and tiding everithing up soon. I made replacement TFT holder for a MKS TFT 24 that fits great and gives the same look as the original one, except for the SD slot.

    By the way, altough it at was a single extruder cubepro, the seller sent it with two extruders and hotends, so, adding the second one will be the next step.

    Here are some pictures.









    I'll keep posting as there are more advances.

    The adapters for tidying up the layout are ready. One for the board, one for the PSU and a third one for the SSR, mosfet and stepdown. They all use original screw holes on the printer, so there is no need to drill. They are intended to be temporary, because later on I want to include cable routing structures to them, but you never know.

    STL and SLDPRT are available if someone wants to use it or modify it.

    Done.
    I thought them 3 were up, but the mks was uploaded but not published.
    It is done in two parts, in order to drive the LCD flat cable under the board and to the the left side of the printer. Useful for a preliminary layout, but I definetly will revise it in the future.

    I made a new addition to the project. I designed a cooling duct for the board that uses the original rubber silencing bolts from the electronics blower. Just print, place, turn and ready to go. After all, we don't want our new board to end up burnt as most of CUBEPROs electronics, end

    If you print two, you can direct the other to the mosfet and SSR.

    Files available here.

    I prefer assembling and glueing rather than big support and odd surfaces, so you can find the full duct, or the split one to print in two parts and glue.

    I have another extruder left, but I'm using driver on E1 for Y2 motor.
    How are you planning to set up Y2 and E1, using a divider on the Y motor and invert the cables o the Y2 motor or using an expander to add 6th driver?
