Switching back to Taz 6 single extruder from dual extruder

Post by tbilan » Sat Jun 23, 2018 7:54 pm

It took me a while to figure this out so I thought I'd post in case it helps someone later. I installed the V3 dual extruder months ago and I had to switch back to the single tonight due to a broken nozzle on my dual extruder. It took me way too long to remember I put the toggle extension on the printer.

Steps:
1 - Install the single print head
2 - Flash the Taz 6 with the single head firmware
3 - Remove the Z-axis toggle extension

thanks for posting this. I had it pretty much figured out but was good to see this list to confirm.

I think steps 1 and 2 are out of order. You should flash the firmware than swap the printhead, else you'll get an error that it can't detect one of the printheads from the dual print head (E0 I think) when you power it back on.

Unless of course if you swap it out with power on, then those steps will work but why chance blowing one of those micro fuses?
