TAZ 6 Dual extruder Nozzle Numbers.
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

There is a very confusing part in the OHAI LulzBot TAZ Dual Extruder Tool Head v2 Installation LulzBot TAZ 6 Workflow. In steps 18- 20 when it talks to the E step adjustment. It refers to the nozzles to T0 and T1 but on the actual machine they are labeled 1 and 2. Both us and a lot of customers get really confused and frustrated with this. Our this is if there is anyway you could change the Firmware to reflect what the guide says.

So just a bit of clarification because I was talking with Robert and I see this issue as well. For the Dual extruder:

The commands to switch back and forth are T0 and T1 <( I have no idea why it is making that a link)
The Esteps we include with the dual extruder (the sticker) are Extruder 0 and Extruder 1

But the LCD screen displays the Esteps as Esteps1 and Esteps2, it displayes the nozzles as nozzle 1 and Nozzle 2.

So customers just don't know which Esteps goes to which toolhead, They think that 1 (from 0 1), equates to 1 (in 1 2).

The Taz 5 displays the Esteps as "Esteps and E1steps" which we never get calls about.

That makes good sense and a bit more helpful for the customer. I added the recommendation to steps 20C and 20D

20C
Use the control knob on the Graphical LCD controller to adjust the value. (using the E0 value you recorded in step 11)

20D

I would call this one closed.
