Will there be confusion between HS and HS 0.5?

How's LulzBot WH Tool Head | 0.5 mm, or LulzBot WorkHorse Tool Head | 0.5 mm?
How's LulzBot WE Tool Head | 0.5 mm, or LulzBot Workhorse Edition Tool Head | 0.5 mm?

This tool head will be compatible with the Pro, Mini 2, and earlier versions of the TAZ correct?

What about HE for Hardened Extruder? Might give the wrong idea about the HS and HS+ not being hardened though.

We could change the focus of the HS and HS+ tool heads from Hardened Steel to High Speed since the big difference will be the increased nozzle size for more rapid printing. Once we have a .5mm hardened tool head option there is less of a reason to buy the HS or HS+ unless you'd like bigger layers. I feel the main reason to purchase them now is to print carbon fiber, not necessarily the large layer heights.

@Orias This will be compatible with Mini 1/2, taz5/6/pro

I like HE for consistency since the Mini 2 standard tool head is the SE, and then shifting the focus of the HS and HS+ as @gyukish suggested.

There has been no activity on this ticket for a month. Are we sticking with the original names from @eBeardslee or are we changing to one of the suggested options (HE or WE)?

Orias added a comment.Jun 4 2019, 9:52 AM

HE works well IMO.

@Orias @adam We need to get a name into Cura today for screen shots, any final opinions?

12 votes from Sales Team - HE

@eBeardslee In your absence, the team decided to name the standard hardened steel tool head "HE". Please roll this into all pertinent marketing material. thanks!
