gMax 1.5 XT+ upgrade to Genuine E3D Hemera 1.75mm 12V Direct Kit


New Member
was looking to switch out the existing extruder set up and installing one of these. E3D Hemera 1.75mm 12V Direct Kits. I was wondering if I need to order the 12 v or 24 v. version? I realize I would have to do some work designing a mount for it but i am willing to give it a try, any help or suggestions would be appreciated.


Do you have a voltmeter? I'm not sure what voltage the power supply puts out, so that wold be the determining factor. The power supply on my 1.5 only appears to put out 12v (+ & -), but I don't know if you could get away with going from 12+ to 12- to get 24 v, I'm not that experienced with power supplies. Also, verify the current requirements of the new gear is less than what it is rated for.
