How do i know which version my toolhead is?


#1

how do I know if my printing tool head is the 2017 or 2016 version? and will the 2017 version work with the flux delta +? because on the flux store it says it works with flux delta only.


#2

The new toolhead has a metal bottom plate. That’s probably the quickest and easiest way to tell them apart.


#3

ok tell me if im doing this wrong, i took scissors and put it under the toolhead and it stuck there, so is it the 2017 version?


#4

lol… did it stick to the toolhead, or the magnets! :stuck_out_tongue: I can’t tell for sure if the plate is magnet (magnet in hand, magnets on toolhead, moving toolhead as it’s printing… not the best time to test :laughing:)… but I’d try with a magnet as see if the base (end where the nozzle is) is magnetic itself (rather the magnetic joint mounts).


#5

ok, ill give that a try too


#6

oh, and it stuck to the plate under it not the magnets, maybe its metal and the magnetic effect of the magnet is being carried over to the metal.


#7

yup, that would do it for you also! Sounds like you know the answer then… 99.999% sure it’s metal :wink:
