The new suckit it a lot better than the original SO3 design. That said, you do still need to be aware of where it is, and how big it is, and what your control software is going to do. I do wish that the vertical brackets were magnetically attached to a plate that allowed adjustment vertically, instead of directly to the vertical adjusters…then it would be a lot easier to “break away” on a crash without damage.
I personally would prefer it if on a “pause” or “Stop” the machine would retract, but stay x/y where it is, and not home until I said it was ok. They’re probably not going to make us all happy. If what you wanted was an “emergency stop” that’s officially the power switch. I don’t like that either, but it is what it is. If you don’t like it, the SO is basically just a really complete kit, you’re expected to know sort of what you’re doing, so go add one (the pins are there, and they’re cheap).
