Re: Einsy Retro on the Taz 6

I made my own mount that puts it in the control box. As for the wiring I made new pigtails that go from the duet wifi to the plugs on the back of the control box so that I could remove the stock control board with all it's wiring in tact. As for bed leveling I did a BL-Touch and did not try doing t...

Re: Einsy Retro on the Taz 6

So I'm going to go a slightly different route. The Duet 2 Maestro was recommended to me. I ordered the Duest 2 WiFi and will be installing it in the next couple of weeks.

Cura LE w/ Mini 1 Problem

I switched to the latest version of Cura LE (3.6.3) to use on my first generation Mini. The problem I'm having is that after auto-leveling, the Z height of the first layer is way too low. Results in poor extrusion. I had the same issue with an earlier version of Cura but forget how I fixed it. Every...

Re: Making a Taz 4 Quieter

I'd love to get as quiet as the Mini 2. There are two big changes on the Mini 2 to reduce noise. The first is the Einsry Retro electronics board which uses the TMC2130 drivers. These drivers have a " Stealthchop " mode which gives the motors much quieter movement. The second aspect will be the move...

I'd say the Z motors are the next most noisy.

Making a Taz 4 Quieter

I'd love to make my Taz 4 quieter. I've replaced the fans with Noctuas and have a dampener on the Y motor. Any other suggestions? New steppers?

Taz 4 Hardened Steel Hobbed Bolt

I'm looking into printing carbon fiber with my Taz 4. I'm planning on using an Olsson Ruby nozzle but it was recommended that I also change to a hardened steel hobbed bolt. Can anyone suggest a non-sketchy vendor where I could find this bolt? I found a couple but reliability of the sites was questio...

Taz 4 Extruder Fan

I have a new fan to put on the extruder of my Taz 4 but I don't know what size pins are needed to crimp onto the wires so they fit in the Molex connector housing. Does anyone know?

Droopy Overhangs

I've tried printing these items on a Lulzbot Taz 4 and Lulzbot Mini 1. Both have droopy overhangs. The slicing programs determine that supports are not needed so I'm not quite sure what to do here. Any suggestions?
