Hi Kanawati,
I would like to mod my A30 and replace the stock extruder with a E3D V6.
I was looking everywhere to find a tutorial but had no luck. What has to be done to use the V6 on a A30?
If I read it right there is no PID tuning possible with the standard FW. In your profile you wrote that your A30 is marlin modded. I am a bit lost on the subject. Can you help me out? Thanks :)

Hello callxyz,
Well tbh I hated everything about the A30 fw So I made a whole new controller box, including:
GT2650 A+ Controller
DRV8850 Stepper
RepRap discount smart controller.

Of course I had to re-wire everything, and that's why I named it A31.

No... Sorry... The A10/A10M has a different mount

congratulations for the work. what are the advantages compared to the original?

Well first of all, it's a direct drive, unlike the Bowden style. Second: it's a BMG (dual drive).
