Approved if we add in a little (requires adapter) to the dual extruder v3 tool head under the compatible add-ons in the final draft of the spec sheet.

@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.
@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?

@DaniAO I like it a lot, especially the multi colored filament sensor, really good idea. Do the labels on the tube slide around at all though, that's probably my only concern?
Jan 8 2019
I would be worried about the interior of the tube not being smooth enough and generating drag on the filament, which could impact the print. Not sure if it's a legitimate concern or not.

I personally would want to go a bit overboard with the identification. One of our big features is that the printers are incredibly easy to use, almost idiot proof. While this wouldn't be a major irritation, I could see it as something that would pop up in technical support as a common "issue".

@DaniAO I got a chance to speak with one of my contacts who is ordering these enclosures. The big features that they really like are, the fact that the enclosure is large enough to also cover the filament reel and that it has a door on the front for easy access. Additionally as the enclosure is rigid it does a fair job of keeping wandering hands away. While the nylon enclosure does cover the entire printer, the fact that it's soft is a big factor for them.

I'm going to reach out to our customer whom is purchasing the majority of these and see if I can get an idea of what the future might hold with regards to more enclosures.
Considering whom is purchasing the majority of these enclosures from us, I don't think a price increase of $100 would make a large difference to them.
@jessica Did Liteworld give reasons for the price point increase?
I just received a purchase order requesting two of these enclosures. They are not looking for delivery of these items until early January but we'll need to order more as we only have one enclosure left in stock. They ordered this based on a quote so we'll have to honor the lower pricing for this order. I did briefly mention to my contact that the price was likely to change in the future, but I gave no specifics.

So I'm now hearing about the new vacuum formed enclosure that we're pushing towards. Does this have potential to replace Liteworld enclosure?

What would we be raising the price to? I'm not 100% certain that I'll be able to actively sell these to customers but as we are already working with them on potentially fixing another issue they have with our printers, networking issues, this might still be a valuable product to offer them. The big reason they went for this is that it's both rigid and encloses the entire printer, filament spool and all. The addition of the fan with a filter was an added bonus that they rather liked.

@adam Can we get a full BOM for what this adapter is going to contain? I'd like to have a small write up about this product so I can accurately describe it. I read through the discourse thread and from what I can tell it's a single printed part with a couple of inserts and a cable harness. Is that all it is?
I've had a couple of resellers, The 3D Connectors and Laser Concepts, indicate interest in this product as they were going through their websites and updating different products. When adding new products in the past, they've needed:

Is this feature only available in 2.6.25? I can't find it in 2.6.23.

I only get that second sentence if I'm using a preset profile. If I make changed to the layer height manually that second sentence disappears even if I use the same layer height as in the preset profile.

I believe it may not have been properly overwriting the previous Gcode, but I'm not 100% entirely certain as I would typically change the orientation of the new print to verify that it was different, and it would successfully print with the new orientation but still having the old bed temperature. I can now successfully set the initial bed temperature and have it properly set in the saved Gcode but the only setting I changed was under the settings visibility. I ensured that all settings were made visible and after that I tried overwriting the Gcode again and it succeeded properly. I do not see how changing this setting would affect it so I believe it was actually user error.

I solved this problem by opening up the SD card in the file manager. It will then be recognized in Cura 2.

Extruders have been switched so swap the offset numbers. Extruder 2 is now Extruder 0. Extruder 1 is still Extruder 1.

This issues was resolved by changing the machine settings under the extruder 1 and 2 tabs. Extruder 1 settings should be Nozzle X Offset: 6.5mm and Nozzle Y Offset: 0.0mm. Extruder 2 settings should be Nozzle X Offset: -6.5mm and Nozzle Y Offset: 0.0mm. The previous settings were for the v2 dual extruder which was why I was having such results.

I'm now discovering that this is not only with merged builds. The same issues will occur with a single object. Designating the support structure to be created with the second extruder will result in the same issue. The part will print fine but the support structure is now offset from the build.
Here is the Gcode for the current print job.
