Re: Taz 4.5 print quality issue

I should have asked here sooner! Great suggestions. I noticed the belt was very tight and that the set screw on the Y stepper was slipping. Loosened the belt and tightened the screw et voila.

Thanks everyone.

Re: Taz 4.5 print quality issue

I suspect that you are both right about the belt being the cause. The more I think about it the more likely it seems. I'll report back after I check tonight.

Re: Taz 4.5 print quality issue

Thanks piercet. I will check the setscrews and belts again. Note the photos shown are not two pieces but one, which makes me doubt that it is a cooling issue. If you zoom in on the photos you will see the problem affects every other layer. Very strange. This part was printed with the fan at 100% sta...

Taz 4.5 print quality issue

I've got an issue affecting my last dozen prints that I haven't been able to figure out. The photos will serve as the best description. It seems as if each layer, starting about 1cm off of the PEI surface, is offset 3mm or so in either direction in an alternating fashion. By that I mean that it look...

Re: Help with Raspberry Pi / Octoprint set up

To summarize the facts: - The pi is connected to the router, so it looks like your ethernet interface is OK - The router can see the pi and has given it an IP address, so likely not a DHCP problem - You have been trying to reach the pi using its IP address directly, so its almost certainly not a DNS...

Re: Help with Raspberry Pi / Octoprint set up

You aren't required to use bonjour, its just a convenience. From the last line of output from the ifup eth0 command, we can see that your pi has the ip 192.168.1.22. Load that IP with firefox (put it in the address bar) and you should be good to go!

Re: Help with Raspberry Pi / Octoprint set up

You should be seeing an entry for eth0 in the output of iconfig (thats the wired ethernet interface on the pi). Try running `sudo ifup eth0` and let us know what happens.

Re: Wanted: Finishing techniques for different materials

I'm also hoping to learn more about finishing techniques, but I'll share a couple things I discovered recently while working on some PLA prints. [*] Sanding first with 180 or 220 grit and then 500 and up worked well for me to get a decent finish. Its hard to get a piece back to being as shiny as it ...

Re: Taz Drop in bed development

My binder-clipped 1/16" PEI sheet has been working pretty well, to my surprise, for a couple months now. When printing semiflex I remove it to print on the PET underneath. Its hard to imagine a temporary bed mounting system more effective than binder clips but I'd probably use it if you came up with...
