    Exclamation How to change hp color 3d printer to uprint se+

    Hello

    I would like to know how you can move from a 3d printer hp color to an uprint se +.

    The machine is removed from support and sale of consumables the sale and technical support, but according to the dealer tells me that the machine is the same, all you have to do is change the gender, since the uprint will continue to sell.

    Thank you very much akb

    I have doubts since my machine is HP Designjet Color 3D Printer
    HP Designjet 3D and Color 3D Printer - Overview and Specifications | HP(R) Customer Support

    And it's similar for not saying the same
    uPrint SE Plus | Stratasys

    Talking to the dealer, he says that the parts are the same, in terms of pcb, motherboard and other components.

    According to your documentation my machine for stratasys is kapalua and it should be with the change paia, according to your experience.

    The question is why I would not be a Molokai.

    My idea is to change the gender so that I can load material not stratasys.

    thank you very much again

    your welcome!

    afaik the printers hana, paia, kaila, molokai, lahaina and kapalua are identical and can be switched to each one. If you want to reset / rewrite the chips yourself you need to gender change to hana oder paia because the machine id of the SE machines (kaila, molokai) has not yet been found.
    But if you buy your material from stratasys (or iSquared) you can also upgrade to SE models.

    Save your CFG file, and make sure your at Version 9 FW for the Uprint.

    1st- In hyperterminal - SG 10 (set gender to uprint2)

    2nd -On the hard drive - set your gender to PAIA(Uprint+)

    3rd- Reboot and when the machine comes online it should ask for firmware from the workstation. Upload 3980 for the Uprint+

    At this point you should have V10 on the controller and machines 18 = uprint3 = Uprint SE" and "19 = uprint4 = Uprint SE+ genders are available.

    Now if you have the Kaila folder on your HD you should be able to convert your machine from Uprint+ to UprintSE the same way you converted from HP to Uprint.

    BTW- The material codes are different for Uprint and Uprintse chips and spools your using may not work after you convert. I suggest converting to NON SE so you can refill the material & support yourself.

    HP CQ656, Uprint and Uprint SE is the same hardware = 8" x 6" x 6" and can only use ivory material color code for reprogramming your eeprom.

    Hi
    I'm procces to convert my HP color 3D in a Uprint Paia.
    I completed the process. Catalyst recognices like a Uprint+, but in machine display appears a message:
    Upgrade from work station.
    When in Catalyst I press the button to upgrade, the software needs a uprint.upg file.
    I don't have this file.
    What is the next step?

    Thanks
