MOARstruder on TAZ 6


#1

Hi everybody,

I'm looking for a way of being able to swap between the TAZ 6 MOARstruder and regular printing head without having to update the firmware after each swap. Is anyone currently already doing this?

The short answer is you can't. Each tool head needs the corresponding firmware installed.

A longer answer is that there is a plugin for OctoPrint, Firmware Updater, that will let you update the firmware from the OctoPi instead of swapping USB cables to update using CuraLE.

I have a TAZ 6 with Single Extruder, Dual Extruder V2, Dual Extuder V3, and Aerostruder and I use this plugin to swap the firmware as I swap the tool heads.

In case you are curious, the differences between the two firmware versions is listed below (Single -> Moar)
