Re: Replacement nozzles for Taz4 Budaschnozzle

<snip> Then you can screw the nozzle off. You will be able to put the nozzle back on as long as the hot end is still warm. Please don't over tighten the nozzle as it is torqued to 30 in. lbs. (just over snug) Thanks for the help Zachah. When placing the new nozzle on, do I need anything like teflon...

Re: Replacement nozzles for Taz4 Budaschnozzle

I would suggest replacing with aero hotend setup or an all metal from the taz 5's. There's more involved to it. Other hotends require an updated writing harness, which requires re-wiring the harness within the motherboard, and also requires a firmware upgrade. And if you have other hot ends, the ne...

Minimum layer height

I'm second guessing myself and I'd like to confirm this. My printer has a .35 nozzle. I seem to recall that the minimum layer one can print is half the diameter of the nozzle, so in my case it would be 0.175mm, however, the default cura settings generated for "fine" printing is 0.14. I also (vaguely...

Replacement nozzles for Taz4 Budaschnozzle

I own a Taz4 with a Budaschnozzle hot end. I've never replaced the nozzle, and I suspect it's now in need of replacing. I contacted Lulbot's tech support and they were pretty much worthless (was told to go buy a completely new hotend, which will also require a new connector kit, and make my other ho...

Re: TAZ 4 5 differences

I own a Taz 4 with the original Budaschnozzle 0.35 nozzle (and original wiring harness). The bed however has been upgraded to the new PEI bed. Can I flash it to the Taz 5 firmware, or is there more to it? I know there is a new harness to connect an additional fan... if that's not a concern, can I fl...

Re: Nozzle diameter, and diameter of extruded material

@kcchen_00 I have two calipers - one pretty inexpensive (sub $50) and another that's pretty decent (was in the $100-$150 range if I remember correctly), and both are telling me 0.75.

Nozzle diameter, and diameter of extruded material

I own a Taz 4 (with a 0.35 mm nozzle), and I have a question about nozzle diameter. I just extruded 10 mm of filament and measured what was extruded, but the diameter of of what was extruded was 0.75 mm, not 0.35 mm. What I did was this: 1. On my printer I have some gray PLA filament (recently purch...

Re: Filament grinding

FWIW, another user (kmanley57) suggested that the issue was that the heat sink wasn't getting cooled enough since it was inside an enclosure (great for ABS, but apparently not so much for PLA). I removed the top and the front panel of my enclosure, and PLA is now printing great again. I haven't prin...
