Benefits of V1 to V2 Upgrade Kit

Postby chosenken » Wed Aug 06, 2014 4:17 pm

So, I was wondering if there would be any benefits in upgrading my Rostock Max V1 to a V2 using the upgrade kit. From my understanding one of the big things about V2 is that its simpler to build, but would I see any other benefits from that?

one of the key benefits of the v2 over v1 is the dual structure on top, it adds to the rigidity of the machine, creating less of a rotational wobble that the v1 can have.
the things you get with the upgrade are just that.. upgrades... the new style arms, carrages, ujoints, axles, platform, cheapskates.. all make for better mechanically moving machine as depending on how old the v1 is, are some major upgrades.. even little things like the new power switch just clean everything up nicely..
other things are mostly aesthetic, it looks nicer, has a shorter base and did I mention looks nicer? =)
