Re: Rambo 15A heated bed fuse keeps burning out.

Theoretically...yes, the hardware can do that. However as the firmware is written it does not have that ability. While the code for a function in and of it self should not be to complex, I am cautious about making big change to the firmware since changing a small function here might break something ...

Re: Rambo 15A heated bed fuse keeps burning out.

Well I have been doing test on the heat bed recently mainly testing every bed for the next batch of printers but also any RMAs we get in trying to find out why they failed,stop working,blow fuses. Originally I was just testing or rather looking at each bed with a thermal camera to see there was any ...

Re: TAZ Heatbed: Use 85C not 110C

Well mainly it because the 110C setting was used for the AO-101's and the TAZ, having a different bed has a different setting of 85C. (It should have always been 85C for the TAZ in the manual, but we did not see the error until after they manuals were printed...sigh)That the simple answer, in realit...

Re: TAZ with Laser and CNC Circuit Mill Spindle

The other thing that should be "okay" to mill, well more like engrave, would be copper clad PCB.

Re: Heat set inserts...

The holding force can change a lot depending on what direction the force is being applied to the insert. If you are pulling and insert up out of the surface of a part, not that much. If you put the insert on the back side of a hole and pull the insert through the part it can hold a lot more.

Re: Changing the nozzle - clockwise or counter-clockwise?

Hmm well that is a bit of an issue I guess when we wrote that we were thinking about when the buda is siting on a desk pointing up after getting it out of a box, and not in the sense of on the machine pointing down. We can try to clarify that in the next version/update to the manual maybe with a dia...

Re: Very inconsistent z-level homing

I just thought of some other things that you might want to check that might be causing "leveling" issues. 1)Is the Extruder mount secure to the x-carriage. If the screw is loose the whole extruder could wiggle up and down a bit. 2)Is the y-axis extruded aluminum bars touching the bottom frame and ar...

Re: Very inconsistent z-level homing

Some things that have helped others are: making sure the Z axis endstop is secure in it's housing, checking the X axis threaded rod and resecuring the hose clamps. You can check to see if you hose clamp are tight enough if when you pull up on the threaded rod lightly, and the tube should not move u...

Re: TAZ TK0

We are working on a doing a change log, but so far as I know it is still on a todo list. Partly since there several of us have been making changes so we will have to collaborate on what has changed and partly since we have been focused on other things. I will try and start working on it later today,...

Re: X Belt on a TAZ

Sorry it took me awhile to respond to this. I saw it, thought up a decent response, and .....oh look a bunny! As of right now there is no "easy" fix to the belt sliding off. We have started checking every printer that goes out the door to make sure the belt does stay on, but that does not fix things...
