I just received the 3d Chameleon MK2 4 Color kit I ordered, and before installing it I started pulling up videos on the installation process for my Ender 3 Pro. A lot of the videos seemed to be for the MK1, so I went back to https://www.3dchameleon.com/ to get a better understanding of the differences between the MK1 and the MK2 (the one I ordered) and how it might affect the installation. It was at this point I notice a slight change in wording near the "add to cart" buttons. There is a "Starter Kit" and an "Add-On Upgrade Kit". I had not noticed this before, and likely clicked on the "Add-On" kit thinking it was an "add-on" to my existing printer, and now I'm worried I have an "Add-On" kit that I won't be able to use.
What is the difference between the "Add-On" and "Starter Kits", specifically in terms of the contents that are shipped in the box? What's the easy way to tell which one I currently have and if I do have the "Upgrade Kit", is there any workaround to still use the "Add-On" kit without having the "Starter Kit"? Perhaps something I can just print?
The box is the electronics that drive the motors. You've got the starter kit.
Thanks for the reply @Bill My box does contain a 12v AC adapter as well as what looks like it would be the power supply (enclosed in a 3d printed case) so I'm hoping I actually did order the starter kit which would be great
Just posting my answer here so that others can see it my answer. The only difference between them is the 12v power supply is replaced with a Y adapter, and a two color (2 into 1) Y splitter is added as well as a jumper cable to allow both the existing unit as well as the new add-on unit to talk to each other. The idea is simple... buy the normal kit for the first one... then if you want to, for example, upgrade to an 8 color machine, you can buy one add-on kit which extends the first 4 color kit to 8 colors. You can go up to 32 different colors on a single extruder. Have two extruders? Great, you can go up to 64 colors. Hope that helps! Bill
