Re: Luzbot 5 Single, printing in squiggles

My best guess would say that your e-steps are off, and/or your nozzle diameter may have changed with the new hotend.
I could be wrong, since you just changed your hotend, I don't think you have a clogged nozzle.
also check your z-hight and make sure that you're not printing too far from the bed.

Upon installing Marlin 1.1.6 and/or 1.1.9 I ham having issues with the movement of my steppers (in any axis direction). There is a delay after each input from the encoder, and each inpu...

Re: Latest Firmware for TAZ5 - advanced development version

I have a TAZ 5 with Openrails mod on X and Y axis, stepper sound dampers, and a newly installed Hardened Steel Nozzle and my very own Optical Proximity Sensor. My printer is currently running with great success: Marlin 1.1.0-RC2 (from the Latest Marlin with G29 Development thread) I just can't seem ...

Re: Latest Firmware for TAZ5 - advanced development version

Are there any new developments with marlin? 1.1.9 will not agree with my printer, even with days/hours of tinkering. I can navigate on my LCD just fine but when it comes to manual axis moving, nothing works right... And I haven't even tried printing with this firmware yet... Is anyone else running t...

Re: Help - Cant Print Taz 5 After Cura 3.6.13

I was having nearly the same problem when upgrading, using a custom machine and custom nozzle size. I had to make sure in the Printer Settings that my Nozzle size was correct and my Filament Diameter was also correct. Also I had to make sure that the print quality matched the size of my Nozzle. (I h...

Re: heated beds

I currently use an Aluminum Plate on my print bed. I think i have the 5052 alloy at 3/16" and it's a 12"x12" square I live in the US and I got my sheet online somewhere. Aluminum plates are very nice because they heat and cool a lot faster than glass, and they maintain their heat better. My sheet ca...
