BEWARE the Dual V3 head! Thumbs down!
I bought the Dual V3 head for my second Taz 6 and have nothing but regrets. Nozzle 2 has the known thermistor wonky connection problem, so temperatures are reported all over the map, causing wrong temperatures to be generated in the hot end. After 3 days of wondering why prints kept failing and temperature warnings kept halting prints, I finally noticed the reported temps on the LCD were hoping around like crazy, varying from 170º to 250ºC. No wonder the hot end was confused. So after wasting 3 days I decided to send the V3 back for a refund. Then I found out that the return policy at Lulzbot says they charge a 15% “restocking” fee, whatever the hell that means. I’m pissed because that means I will have paid $74.25 (15% of $495) plus insured return shipping of $25.50 for a total of $99.75 just to try out a defective piece of experimental crap that wasted three days of my time. They sent me an empty and worthless apology for their return policy, taking into account NO consideration that their print head was DEFECTIVE from the start. I wouldn’t have the nerve to treat my customers like that, but the difference is I STAND BEHIND MY PRODUCTS 100% and Aleph Objects doesn’t. Instead, they profit from defective returns. $100 down the drain! And three days of wasted time.
I have bought two Taz 6 printers and one Lulzbot Mini. My next printer will not be coming from Lulzbot as a result of their treatment.
It doesn’t make matters any better that Cura 2.6.66 is by far the worst piece of software I’ve ever encountered. The GUI fails to refresh the screen practically every time you make a little change to the settings, that is, when it doesn’t just totally crash.
I should have known better than to buy a newly developed and apparently under-tested piece of hardware before there’s been time to work the bugs out.
