    Gender change sst1200...Is there someone that could share a fortus 250mc iamge ?

    Hello everybody,

    i'm in need of an Fortus 250mc image. The idea is to find an easy way to change gender from SST1200es to a Fortus 250mc
    I need an image of the printer and if possible as well the calibration file for the same image...


    Is there a chance that someone could help me with those files ?

    Depending on the age of the machine, the HDD might already have the files for the 250. The HDD is generic across the "p-class" machines. Look in the modelers file folder on the HDD.

    You need to change the "gender" setting on both the controller and the HD.

    A summary of what needs to be done. You should take a backup of the HDD before doing any of this.

    1.Use a null modem cable with HT to change gender on the controller
    2.Remove the HDD from the printer and connect it to a Linux PC with a USB to IDE/SATA contraption and change the gender. If you don't have a dedicated Linux machine you can use Ubuntu and run it from the disk.
    3. Change the tips for a 250 (T14 and T12SR).
    4. Boot the machine and it should promt you to upload an UPG file for the 250mc.
    5. Then deal with calibration and you should be good to go.

    CAL files are machine specific so you will need to recalibrate the machine from scratch or reuse the values currently on the machine using MaracaEx or Datastat to read them and re-enter them after you convert.
