Re: Taz 6 specific External Belt Tensioner

Nice work! That came out clean! Are you planning on uploading it to thingiverse as a remix? Remixes give more visibility in ranking to original projects anyways so i'd be fine with that.

If not, would you mind if I uploaded it and the pictures giving you full credit for the remix?

Thanks!
Tim

Re: TAZ 3 with TAZ 5 Extruder

The Taz 3 out of the box doesn't have the wires for the fans. Did you add those in? there is a procedure here that shows where the wires need to go, then you have to alter the firmware https://ohai.lulzbot.com/project/taz3-hexagon-toolhead/accessories/ If you are still using the Taz 3 threaded rod, ...

Re: Lulzbot Mini startup/auto-level fail - around probe points

That's looking like both z axis motors are reversed, the reverse axis switch is set in firmware, or rare but possible the Rambo board is shorted and going the wrong way. If you are under warranty I would call support.

Re: Large Shifts on my prints

You need a 2 or 2.5mm Allen key I think for those.

Re: Belt driven Z axis as an improvement?

A belted Z completely eliminates Z wobble. You only have the machine constrained to the bearings then. It also eliminates an expensive part of the machine (twice in the case of the taz) The downsides will be belt tension, fraying belts potentially, Risk of a belt anchor failure causing a catestrophi...

Re: Large Shifts on my prints

From what little I could see of the print, it looks like it is happening the layer immediately after what looks like a zip tie mounting point. Sometimes you get upwards deflection on a part as it cools on a larger layer, and depending on position it can be up far enough that the nozzle hits it, caus...

Re: 7 Kg of plastic, and my X & Y linear bearings are warn out.

I don't think this has anything to do with the 3D printed parts. I took a video to show that the wear was on the purchased bearing. Ok. If you measure the height of those bearing fins on that bearing, and on a brand new one, you will find they are identical. But if you don't think thats what the is...

Re: 7 Kg of plastic, and my X & Y linear bearings are warn out.

Those bearings are designed to be press fit into a housing with a preload. The 3d printed parts cant take that much force. The usual way to get a better contact pattern is to loosen the bearing holders and move them onboard or outboard until play is reduced. You can also change to other setups. If y...

Re: Don't skimp on wiring!

Yes! That's what I'm hoping for. Any chance you ventured into making an extruder outfitted for a BL Touch? Figured I'd ask but if not, I will probably go modify one of Lulzbot's files. There is a back probe mount for the Openbuilds X rail. I don't know that I've ever published it other than the for...
