Re: Have issues and been fiddling with it for 3 weeks

Is it all around the part or just one side? Elephant's foot is usually because the auto-level isn't working properly. A thin film of filament on the discs or nozzle can affect the continuity... causing the nozzle press farther than necessary on the discs, which skews the print plane. Clean the discs...

Re: Have issues and been fiddling with it for 3 weeks

Reduce the flow rate / multiplier by 3-5%. That could help with the dimensional accuracy.

Lowering extrusion temps and increasing fan by a few percentage will help "lock-in" the form.

Re: Taz 6 - Wavy lines on first layer

If that were throughout the print, I'd say it was a partially clogged nozzle. But if its only the first layer, then check if the slicer software supports varying the initial height or extrusion width. Typically you want the initial layer height a fraction of your normal layer height to promote adhes...

Check the toolhead... seems like something might be loose or broken.

Re: Having trouble finishing some prints.

This print time for the last few layers are too short, so the layers aren't solidifying. The easiest thing is to turn the fan to 100% for the final 5-10 layers. If the fan is already at 100%, decrease the extrusion temp to allow for quicker cool time of the extrusion. Or slow down the print or add a...

Re: Extruder Head encased itself in ABS overnight!

The ABS typically won't stick to the metal... a heat gun might soften it up to the point where you could remove most of the filament. Might need a knife to cut The wires are concerning... but its only the heater block and thermister wires that should be affected. Hopefully the ABS didn't wrap around...

Re: Even BLTouch Probe Can't Make My TAZ Print Flat

Well... check that the frame is square and the machine isn't shifting when the bed moves. Also dial back the touchpoints... 25 seems like a lot. Start with the 3 and go up to 5... could be some bug in Marlin averaging all the touchpoints.

Re: Even BLTouch Probe Can't Make My TAZ Print Flat

Thats disappointing...

So when printing does the Z steppers move consistently to account for the print plane?

Re: 2 different filaments in 1 print?

Yes.

Import the two STLs and assign each a filament material in Cura.

Start reading from Step 14 of the DualExtruder v3 installation guide:

Re: Major PLA curling issues

Post a picture of the print bottoms.

Why are you printing the first layer at .425 when your layer height is .15? Maybe I'm getting the settings confused, but the first layer is usually a fraction of your layer height to promote adhesion to the bed.
