Was really looking forward to this since I came across it in the devel hardware section a few months ago. Got one shortly after it was announced. Im having a few issues;
Filament loading is very difficult as the printed part dosnt guide smoothly into the metal hold below it. Filament tends to dead-head against the bottom of the channel and not feed in. Makes it incredibly difficult to get filament in without it popping out the side if you miss a roll ending, especially since there still isnt a filament sensor on the tool head.
Filament unloading is nearly impossible until you figure out the trick. It seems the material is melted a bit up the nozzle, and is then too thick to pull back out. Even trying with the motor just ground up the filament. I had to feed it in about 10mm, then pull it back up while it was still semi melted before it solidified too much to remove.
Octoprint communication issues. None of the other updated firmware versions are giving me errors in octoprint, but with the dualv3 flashed, I keep getting checksum errors and needing to force acknowledgement for octoprint to continue (Recv: Error:No Line Number with checksum, Last Line: XXXX). Tried turning on the repitiere fixes, but no dice. Problem followed a different raspberry pi, and usb cable. Disappears when plugged in via usb to cura. Disappears on same hardware with different toolhead (Its been running ninjaflex on the flexystruder v2 for the past 2 hours without a hiccup). I still need to try this on one of my other machines and see for sure that the problem follows the toolhead, but at minimum the new standard heard and flexystruder firmwares dont do this. I don’t have any jobs calling for flexydually or moarstruder atm, so I don’t have a window to test.
Missing some commands. Routinely from S3d the G1 Z1 command at the tart of wipe is skipped and it just swipes away from 10mm high.
Nozzle on an angle. The right nozzle is about .3mm lower than the right in the mount on my machine. I may print a brand new lower lip for the mount just in case this is the issue. This taz 6 has quite a few hours on it.
Mount bolt dosnt line up to triangle hole in the face. Wouldnt it have been nice if the triangle went up just a few mm more so you could fit the wrench straight through?
Live Z offset adjust. Dosnt work here. Did work for the Flexystruder v2.
Cura profile still sends tool head to front point for probe instead of back which is now first.
Also not sure if this is intentional but there is no estep sticker on the back of these like prior toolheads. Is this intentional as the gears are now molded parts instead of printed?
So anyone else spend this week fighting one of these?
