So I have a TAZ 5 (w 0.5mm nozzle hex hotend)that I recently bought and I want to be able to print flexible materials like ninjaflex for example. So what I ended up doing was buying a refurbished TAZ 5 regular tool head/extruder assembly and then printed out the flexystruder extruder part and put it together along with the PTFE tubing.
So my question is, does this sound like this will work?
Also do I really need to flash my firmware? and If I do flash my firmware and I want to switch back to the standard extruder do I need to reflash it again?
I am not sure what e-steps are exactly, I need to look into that more but they are slightly different from the existing extruder to the new flexystruder I build(833 vs 800). So I expect I would at least need to adjust that when changing tool heads. Also, do I need to recalculate the e-steps since I modded the tool head?
