Re: Trouble Removing ABS Print

Isopropyl alcohol will help release the ABS from the PEI. Clean the nozzle, discs and wiper pad. It sounds like the auto level is off. Is the first layer of the print wider than than the rest? You really don't need anything on the PEI to print ABS. Just get the initial nozzle height correct. The poi...

Re: Newbie cant download Bed_Calibration.gcode

You typically want to download a .STL file and generate the .GCODE file from a slicer software with settings for your printer. I'm not familiar with the file your trying to download, but I wouldn't use it unless its from the lulzbot ftp site and the TAZ 4 is stock. Best way to level the bed is with ...

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

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.
