Re: Nozzle diameter, and diameter of extruded material

All filament passing though the nozzle will abrade it. The fact that you measured 0.75mm is irrelevant unless it used to measure smaller. All filament "expands" when passing through the nozzle. It has to with material compensation, heat, humidity, and many other factors.

Filament sensor using z-max endstop pin

I'm considering adding a mechanical filament run-out sensor to my toolhead. I'd like to use an existing pin that is unused (max endstops) as the trigger. I'm comfortable with editing the fw but haven't messed with pin configs. I'd appreciate some guidance on where to grab power (3.3v?) And how to re...

Re: Auto firmware install doesn't work on 2.6.66/Mac

I have never been able to flash my TAZ 5 from Cura on Mac. Either with Custom or Official FW. It always times out. I have a windows laptop that gets used for flashing.

Uncompiled Marlin files with Lulzbot customization

I am looking for the uncompiled Marlin files for a recent version of the Lulzbot customized FW. I need the uncompiled version for a few reasons, mainly to set up my bed leveling using a capacitive probe, but also I'd like the keep the rest of the streamlining they have done in there. Also I am going...

Re: Latest Firmware for TAZ5 - advanced development version

I finally updated to the most recent development build from my old custom build. With my TAZ 5 having a probe for auto leveling I had to change a bit and remove the lulzbot variables for auto leveling. It all is working well so far, auto leveling and all. I'd like to add a TAZ 5 autolevel variant to...

Re: Active mass dampers for x or y axis?

In my opinion adding weight is going to be counter productive. In a closed loop system likes we have here, I don't think.you will be offsetting anything, rather just adding mass that the system has to overcome. Tuned mass dampers are used to prevent unwanted motion through inertia. We want the oppos...

Are yours digital by any chance?
No, just have a little trim pot on there to control the voltage.
