Re: Old vs New enclosure for the Taz6

Yep... complex question as piercet states. Any enclosure that traps heat is better than the printer sitting outside. Wood will probably be better insulator than acrylic / plastic. Foam could possibly be better than wood. The hardware store has accordion type foam that is .25in thick. Easy to cut and...

Re: Modular Print Bed Issues

That's a great idea. Print them out of something that the heated bed won't soften.... There are additional threaded holes in the aluminum bed. You could potentially use them to support the steel bed... One user in the forum, uses multiple wiper pads to support the bed. BTW - We're probably have diff...

Re: Really bad Z Wobble in X axis

Z-wobble typically produces a pattern due to the bend in the lead screws. What I see in the pictures is a shift in the print. Does it happen on all prints at the same height or is it random heights?

Re: Really bad Z Wobble in X axis

I've had similar issues with my Y-axis and it turned out to be the belt holders under the aluminum bed were loose. Causing a similar shift.

Also check that the toolhead is seated properly on the X-carriage and its not wobbling/shifting.

Re: Modular Print Bed Issues

Regarding the modular bed gap, its been discussed on the forums. I use binder clips to keep the steel plate to the glass. There are other mods. Search "modular bed".

Re: Need a smooth first layer / e-step and z offset woes

Try increasing the "initial layer line width". It needs to be enabled in the "Quality" section by clicking the gear next to the arrow.

Re: TAZ 5 Dual Extruder V3 Issues

Doesn't look like there is a Z-offset stored in the eeprom. It would be the M206 line. Are you heating up the nozzles before using the feeler (business card) to check nozzle height? Make sure to clean the teeth on the hobbed gear after the filament is ground down. How deep are the grinds in the fila...

Re: TAZ6 Bed Vibration

Check the belt mounts on the bottom of the bed... The screws can loosen over time.

Re: ABS Layer strength

Try:
- Extruding a little hotter - this could help the adhesion to the previous layer.
- Turn the object on its side. Prints are stronger when the extrusion is continuous.
- Post process - If its ABS, dip it in acetone... or paint acetone on the surface.
