For the record, I had posted this in Pidgin earlier:

Now, update your 3D printer firmware to use your new tool head.
Note: This will overwrite your existing firmware.
Make sure your 3D printer is the only device connected to your computer through USB. Next, click "Flash the firmware" (below).

I like the most recent and shorter text I posted here: https://code.alephobjects.com/M3#55

I haven't changed any of the wording to the firmware section yet.

My proposed edits on this version below.

I am trying to wrangle an answer on whether we should do "v.1, v1, or V1" when referring to tool heads, then we'll need to use that across the board.

Current, stock machines should be the default selection. I would move this over to the be left-most choice (switching places with "Modified...")

Don't use "Hex". The terminology is already too confusing with single extruder tool head v2, extruder, lulzbot hexagon hot end, .5mm nozzle, etc.

Hm... What about, "PEI & V2 Tool Head" or "PEI & Hexagon"?

I think the picture does a good job showing what's needed here, so "PEI & V2" may be sufficient.

Don't use "Buda". The terminology is already too confusing with single extruder tool head v1, extruder, budaschnozzle hot end, .35mm nozzle, etc.

Proper name would be, "LulzBot Hexagon Hot End"

I'd recommend a comma after "have"

This part is the "LulzBot Hexagon Hot End", to differentiate it from the standard Hexagon Hot End offered by RepRap Discount (there are several significant changes that we made).

I'm assuming this is just for demonstration purposes, but to reiterate the only flashing for a Mini should be for the Flexystruder. LulzBot is spelled capital L, capital B.

This calls flashing an "upgrade", when elsewhere we are using the term "update".

Context: We seemed to agree that "update" is a more a accurate description of what the user is doing, i.e. Flexystruder firmware isn't inherently better or an upgrade from stock firmware, it's just different.

Why is "firmware" lower case, but "Update" upper case? Want these two to be consistent, seems like making "firmware" uppercase makes sense here.

Note: If we make a lower/upper change, make sure to also change the instructional text that refers to these options above.

Note: I'm not sure the process when one flashes firmwire, I've only done it once through Arduino IDE but that's it, so pardon me if this is bad feedback :)

I'm seeing the terms "Firmware install..." and "Uploading firmware..." here.

Elsewhere in these docs we use "flash firmware" to describe the overall process, and "update" to specify the type of firmware flashing that's happening (versus upgrade).

If Install and Upload are discrete steps in the process of "flashing firmware", then it makes sense to use them because it explains to the user what's happening. If not, we should try to simplify the terminology.

Just to be sure, this line is a mistake and should go down to done, correct?

Ah, after talking with Nick, this step has to go to the nozzle selection then it is done.

Just a remark from trying the devel brach with this dialog. I'm new to 3D printing and my Mini arrived two days ago. I had no idea what the Flexystruder is and if I have one. Had to google it. If you want to make it beginner friendly, add a small text as to when one would select "LulzBot Mini with Flexystruder".
