TazUp - Simple Metal Frame Upgrade

LulzBot Taz machines have more potential than ever. For just $268.51, a few metal plates can be bolted on in place of plastic brackets in the frame. The three-step process is outlined in a visual guide, the attached PDF. Experiments by TasStiff owners, myself and natewalck, suggest these simple subs...

Re: What should we make next?

Some have also requested that Octoprint setup's be a possible add-on feature officially from A.O. If you do decide to do that it might not be a bad idea to create/sell a 5v regulator add-on to the 24v power supply with a female USB connector. IIRC, the RAMBo electronics onboard 5V regulator can sou...

Re: TAZ 5 Uninterruptible Power Supply "UPS" has arrived!

Personally, I found reducing maximum bed PWM a bit was sufficient to let me use a CyberPower 450VA UPS. A better approach might be to provide battery backup for a power supply driving the control electronics and motors only, since the heated bed has enough thermal mass to ride out brief faults.

Re: I finally got around to finishing the parts for my CNC Mill

Awesome. If you don't mind my asking, piercet, what kind of milling jobs are a priority? Metal plate cutting, PCB manufacture, 3D parts, etc?

Re: I finally got around to finishing the parts for my CNC Mill

Awesome!

Might want to exchange the Bosh Colt for a DeWalt DWP611 or equivalent though. Much less runout, plus compatibility with Think & Tinker precision collets.

Re: Anyone Tried a Removable PEI Bed?

Thanks!

Paying $450 for a new sheet sounds ridiculously expensive though. No wonder this stuff hasn't been used much in production!
