No one talking about Quiver and the switch to Titan Aero?

Surprised how quiet its been about the TAZ 7.

Switching to Titan Aero will make the toolhead really clean, lighter. Meaning more accuracy and / or higher speed prints. Mirrored Titan is a dual extruder dream.

So does switching to the Titan Aero mean the Hexagon is dead? Or will it live as a Chinese copy cult classic?

Yes, the Titan Aero indeed makes for a clean, light toolhead. Add in a surrounding filament cooling duct, and you have a winner.

I'm super excited about the belt drive. I've been fighting Z banding on my mini for years. Finally knocked it out, but this should eliminate it completely.

My only question is when the power goes out, what prevents the X axis from being pulled down and slamming into the bed?

It's a gearbox driven motor on the belt. Gear friction causes it to go down very slowly.

I've been pondering in this side of the devel folders and i am very interested to see how this pans out. Having built my taz 6 i have no problems building the 7 or converting the 6 to a 7.

I have downloaded all the available stls. But i am stuck on the top z mounts. There is now a square hole for what looks like 2020 ext. But it must be for idler bearings for the belt drive. I cannot seem to find anything that goes in those slots.

Did you look in the Quiver ATTIC folder? That might be what you're looking for..
I will express my CRAZY ideas at any time! So you have been warned. None of my opinions are Lulzbots and can be wrong at any second.

The Titan Aero is a winner. I snagged one from IT-Works and put it on my old Mini 1.03. Super easy upgrade and it prints like a dream. That combined with the new Modular Bed brought new life to my aging little workhorse. I'm happy to see the new things coming to Lulzbot. The next gen models will be hard to beat.

My next extruder project is this: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2169219 but with a picatiny rail quick disconnect and spring pin contacts, and instead of an onboard motor, a torque tube flex drive cable and a motor located up on the frame. So dual drive bondtech gears, lighter frame, and 1/8th the weight. We'll see if it prints well.
