GalaxG Soft Enclosure issues with Quiver
Closed, WontfixPublic

Description

I noticed a issue with the GalaxG soft enclosure not working very well with the taz pro. The main issue arose because of the feed tubes having a much higher profile and if the tool head is all the way up, it will drag the enclosure with it along the x-axis.

Nothing too major and the quick fix is to watch when the print starts to make sure it doesn't drag it.

We could also re-design the printed part that this sits on., or only advertise this enclosure for for TAZ 6 and Mini.

There are some other enclosures in the works for this Quiver currently, one in house and one from printed solid.

@Megan @gyukish how well do these sell? Do we need to have this enclosure for Quiver?

Another issue where this will fail is with the tool head itself. Due to the tool head being much bigger itself there is no room for the clips holding on extrusions and the tool head will get stuck with the contact point between the extrusion and the tool head.

I do not think we need to have this enclosure for Quiver. Given the price point of Quiver, I think people will prefer the more professional look and feel of other enclosures to this, as well as that it sounds like it may be a hassle to redesign the attachment

@Megan agreed.

@oliver I feel like we could close this as won't fix and just not include Quiver on the product page for this, unless you have another solution in mind.

@DaniAO I agree with Megan, I don't think this will be needed for the Quiver. Are we not also working on a vacuum formed enclosure as well?

@gyukish this was mentioned in my previous comment

@DaniAO Ahh my bad, missed that. Either way, I don't we'd have any major issues with the Quiver not being compatible with the galaxG enclosure.
