Re: Can I operate the taz without the extruder head?

Also just for anyone that finds this in the future, the micrometer system is awesome (short of having auto-leveling). It feels so much better to know my bed is actually leveled and not that I think the paper under the nozzle had roughly the same amount of stiction in each of the corners.

Re: Can I operate the taz without the extruder head?

Thanks, yeah that's what I'm doing, the hotend still plugged in somewhere within reach of the cables. I thought there might be a nice way to turn off the check. From what I've seen I can rewrite the firmware to not do the check, I jut thought there might be a simple command I could send.

Do you unplug your power supply?

I've noticed that my TAZ 4 power supply sometimes likes to turn on its fan every once in a while, even when the TAZ is off, and of course that it has a lovely always-on green LED. The printer currently lives in my room which is why I'm very aware of these things. I'm sure it's not drawing tons of po...

Changes to KITTAZ Assembly Instructions

Hey everyone, I just finished building my KITTAZ! Yay! The assembly of the kit was mostly painless and I really appreciate the work Lulz did putting together a nice instruction set with well documented parts. I found a few mistakes in the instructions (most of them missing bag numbers) which I decid...

Re: KITTAZ parts required to become a TAZ?

I asked this same question recently, just before getting my Kittaz. Our friendly neighborhood customer service person (hope you don't mind) replied with this very complete answer, so I figured I'd add it here for future wanderers. Personally I've enjoyed thoroughly building it (*cough* almost done) ...
