Re: Really bad Z Wobble in X axis

Figured it out, wasn't something I expected.. must have tightened the smooth rods on the x carriage while it was higher up, when I loosened the grub screws it released some pressure against it so I should have leveled before tightening the screws. I feel silly but glad it was a simple fix

Re: Calibrate my mini 2?

Looks like your X gantry might have gotten out of level. Check both sides with a ruler

Re: Modular Print Bed Issues

Thanks, unfortunately due to my enclosure design binder clips will just knock the door open. Read some other related threads and someone mentioned using the Quiver designed bed corners for a taz 6, I'm in the process of adapting them to the taz 5 style bed corners. Going to print and test if they wo...

Re: Really bad Z Wobble in X axis

The shifting only happens in the X axis. I recently did some maintenance to try and remedy the issue which included taking the bed assembly apart, changing belts, anything I could think of and still it happens identically on every print. I also printed the strengthened extruder assembly, changed igu...

Modular Print Bed Issues

I recently purchased the modular print bed as it's nice to switch to glass for TPU and be able to remove the glass for cleaning. The first of my issues was the bed corners that lulzbot recommends to print for the different thickness of the modular bed, they have too much space to where the glass pla...

Really bad Z Wobble in X axis

zwobble1.jpg zwobble2.jpg After printing replacement parts and doing maintenance on my Taz 5 like new belts, new precision igus bearings and holders on the X and Y axis, I'm still having issues with layer shifting in the x axis on the first 40-50mm of Z height pictured above. I did a test and measu...

Re: Taz 5 Grinding Filament

Your idler arm could be either too loose or too tight. loosen it until there is just a little pressure pushing against the filament and clear out any existing plastic chips in the hobbed bolt, this is more likely a scenario than heat creep in my opinion. it could also be ground up plastic in the hob...

Re: TAZ 6 not extruding

could be that the nozzle is clogged or your idler arm is too tight. Only make it so there is just enough force for filament to extrude otherwise it could just grind away the filament and not feed (especially on softer materials). check to make sure there isn't ground up plastic in the hobbed bolt ge...
