Re: TAZ 5 and 1.75mm Filament

Typically slicers don't take printer firmware acceleration and jerk settings into consideration. So the more complex the infill / part is the more the slicers estimate is off.

The factory firmware acceleration factors on the Taz 5 are very low and really slow things down.

Re: Add status indicator LED's to your TAZ

Couple of things... So, what to the status indicators indicate? What is the meaning of the lights? Are they simply for looks or do they serve a purpose? As for lighted bed, you don't need any buck converter. Just get 12v LED adhesive strips off ebay (5m roll is what I bought). Cut 2 strips (one for...

Re: Wiring two fans

These types of fans are not inductive motors, so therefore wiring them up in series will not work. They are microprocessor controlled BLDC motors. You need to run 24v motors, and if you want 2 fans, you need to run them in parallel. Most 12v fans will last for a little bit on 24v, but eventually the...

Re: Trouble all of a sudden

@muggs -- kcchen_00 nailed it. Back in the day I was saving up for a Honda S2000, it was an all encompassing goal so it ended up becoming my alias as well, as in I want my S2000! :-) This has been a long thread and I forget if you have checked out the Rambo board for overheating or anything that mig...

Re: hotend no longer heats up

The heater resistor in the Buda is probably smoked. The firmware for the Hex hotend allows a lot more current to the heater cartridge in the Hex. The Buda's resistor can't take that and tends to burn out. Also the Hex and Buda use different thermistors so the temp reading is off if using the wrong f...

Re: Taz4 Printer Enclosure - Heated???

It seems like Lulzbot sources most of their extrusions from Misumi.
