Re: Z-axis offset woes

has anyone found a solution to this problem, My printer is printing so close to the bed that no filament is allowed to flow, sure would be nice to be able to change the z offset.

The last photo in the group of 3 above photo's was how the items were printed on the bed. I'm not sure if I have a under or over extrusion issue or does it have something to due with over hangs as the item is being printed.

Re: My extruder mount is rocking!

I have a TAZ 4 that I upgraded to a TAZ5 (hotend and bed). I purchased the Hardened Linear Shaft and the LMU10 Linear Bushings from Misumi, but have not installed them yet. I read in some of the post that these Bushings have caused some problems with Harmonic in the prints and they are loud. The peo...

Is there going to be a heat problem with keeping the control panel inside the box. I feel very lucky I ordered all my parts a while ago, and I will start my build sometime in the ne...
