Hot end clogging

Hi, I've been troubleshooting the nozzle on our TAZ 2 for the last week and a half and I have run out of ideas. It was printing fine with black PLA. I switched over to silver PLA and that's when the clogging started. I was printing a pretty big part (30 hrs or so). With about 25mm left in the z, the...

Re: Fan for Rambo board

Thanks Orias. The header pins I can get at any electronics store?

Also is the fan completely necessary ?

Fan for Rambo board

I recently installed a new Rambo v1.2 board. I was able to upload the firmware and recalibrate the extruder just fine. However, there is one question/issue that I may have. There are no pins for the fan blowing on the electronic board itself. In the upper right corner where it was on the original bo...

Re: Temp Reading Stuck

bam, Thanks for your help. I tried doing what you suggested. After switching the pin assignment from T0 to T1, I still have an incorrect value, except it is 166 C rather than the 127 C. I tried assigning it to 3 and that went back to 127. The last thing I did was I switched the bed thermistor pin (i...

Re: Temp Reading Stuck

No, that's not the issue. When the extruder heater is set to off rather than reading room temperature it reads about 127. The bed reads room temperature just fine. When I switch the extruder and bed thermistor pins, the extruder thermistor (which is now in the bed slot on the board) reads fine so I ...

Re: Temp Reading Stuck

Was a solution found to this? Mine is currently stuck around 127 C. I did all the steps that Solaiss did (except replacing the thermistor) to no avail. I used a DMM to measure the voltage for the bed thermistor pins on the board and it was 5V. I did the same to the extruder thermistor pins and it wa...

Re: TAZ 2 beginning layer problems

We were running the .35 nozzle on our AO-101 as well so that's why I did that. I did also try some of the base configurations from the downloads sections and I still saw the same issue from the 2nd to the 10th-ish layer.

Re: TAZ 2 beginning layer problems

It does look like the middle picture. As I said, the first layer is perfect - it's the following 5-10 layers. It's as though it isn't going up quite high enough in the z so it extrudes much fatter during those layers. After about 10 layers it prints great again. I don't know if it's a software issue...

TAZ 2 beginning layer problems

Hey guys, My company received our TAZ 2 a few weeks ago and I've been trying to get all of the settings correct. To begin with, I took the settings from our AO-101 and tried that with awful results. I then started tweaking everything to get our TAZ 2 to print as well as our AO-101 prints. I have got...
