It lives! Thanks for the write up Piercet. It may of just been me, but on the x axis parts, specifically the motor block, and idler parts, the 10mm bolts were too short to get a t-nut to work on. I just remodeled the parts to make the holes a bit deeper, but everything works great!

Re: Adding an Openbuilds Openrail x axis to a Lulzbot Taz 4/5

Thanks. Should have the missing screws and spacers by wed so I can finish this all up. Already have the z-wobble device in the printer I'm converting. Pictures of where I am. I did remodel the printed backplate to use the stock style belt locks so that the open ends come off the backplate at the app...

Re: Adding an Openbuilds Openrail x axis to a Lulzbot Taz 4/5

After a few hours I found myself missing a couple parts I forgot to order, so my build is on hold for a couple days. Quick question thought. Is the belt bracket the printed version of the backplate? I didn't see anything in the instructions for working with that part vs the metal backplate.

Re: New Taz 6

Something is definitely fishy. The bed should not look like that. The adhesive is all bubbled/funny looking. It should look super clean.

Upgrading toolhead harness

Been searching the forums, and Lulzbot now sells a nice toolhead harness replacement for the machine, which I would like to get for my oldest taz5, but also want to retrofit my older toolheads, and I can't find the mating connector for this https://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/molex-connector-c...

Accel was 500 on the slower taz, and 1000 on the faster one. All other settings were the same.

Hardware or Firmware

I've worked to dial in my two taz 5's to be able to run from the same profile, which saves me a little hassle. However, I've finally confirmed something I've suspected for a while. One printer is slower than the other. On a 3 hr print, it's about 15 minutes off printing the identical gcode sent at t...
