Re: Torture Test - Is Your Printer and Slicer Calibrated Properly

The slic3r PE version has moved light years beyond where the older slic3r was. The only thing the offshoot slic3r has that PE doesn't yet was the software linear advance feature, which never really worked.

Re: Taz 2 evolved to 4

How much did this end up costing you? Doing this years ago would have been cheaper than it is now, but its still doable. Here are the expected cost breakdowns: If you have a Taz 2, it should be 24v, but you will want to check. If its not 24v, you will need a meanwell 24v 500w PSU - $90, and housing...

Do you have more info or a specific link to a forum thread covering this? Thank you Here's a thread covering the basic process. https://forum.lul...

Re: Adding solenoid

You could activate one via the I2C port on the Rambo board. Search for "Rambo and Servo" for examples of how it can be done. You may need a mosfet if your solenoid draws sufficient current to be above the rating for the board.

Re: Taz 6 Won't Stay Level

Those "bars" are called leadscrews and they control your Z axis. THe Bed is the Y axis, the extruder is the X axis. What is probably happening is you have a coupler that is either loose, missing a setscrew or two, or is broken. Check the side that is having issues for coupler issues, if that doesn't...

Mini 2 parts?

Soo, if someone is thinking about building a Mini 2 and wanted to source the bed mount plate to make it look neat, is there anywhere to buy one of them? I don't see it listed in the store. A person might also be interested in the urethane printed bits too. Possibly the LCD plate as well. (basically ...
