Tweaking the bed size is ignored

I have to print a full size part, for this purpose I try to tweak the bed size to a maximum. Unfortunately my TAZ 5 absolutely ignores "extended" geometry. The maximum amount I achieve is 275 mm Y-Wise. The bed has 300 mm and has still much freedom of movement and is not at its ends. The printer sim...

Both hot ends heating with Dual v3 on a TAZ5

Is it normal both hot ends are heated when printing via one only? How could it be avoided?
I am slicing on a Cura 3.6.18.

Re: Cura 3.6.18 vs. 21.08 scaling

Thanks for the export tip, indeed I could scale there by 1000 and Cura 3 was able to scale it up at least. I attach the Blender file to the post so you can check yourself. Please note the world is set to metric. The Blender file can be downloaded here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1NFjCSZUPW0yO3...

Cura 3.6.18 vs. 21.08 scaling

Hi, I have major problems getting scaling of Blender 2.80 3D Printring toolbox export to work. With Cura 21.08 it works flawless, no problem, the model is imported fine. Cura 3 has major problems, it starts scale by 1000000 by default but even then the model is too small. If the the model is at leas...

Dual Extruder v3 leveling

Hi, I am considering to buy the new dual v3 extruder, but I don't know what nozzle leveling really means. Is it related to the bed or to the second nozzle? "The Dual Extruder v3 does not require nozzle leveling or offset calibration, is lighter and more compact than its predecessor, and features imp...

Hi, cool post. Thanks, will consider a change as well. For me the heat sink fan is also a replacement candidate! Do you ever considered this also?

Annoying heat sink fan

When my printer is idle the heat sink fan is blowing constantly and makes nerving sounds. Is there a way to turn off the fan, when not printing/heating?

Thanks

Re: Grinding through PLA at a crazy rate

Hey I was printing with HIPS and recently switched to PLA. The first few prints went fine but recently i've been having lots of problems with the filament grinding. I lose about 3 in every 4 prints due to it. Each time I clean the notched rod in the extruder to ensure all the grooves are clear and ...

Re: Printing from SD-Card crashed on USB connect

The SD card is in the machine correct? So why do you still have the USB cable connected? Hi George, sometimes I make some small prints directly via USB or start long prints from SD-Card, however IMHO it does not matter for which purpose the USB connection is used, it is not very nice to have a syst...

Printing from SD-Card crashed on USB connect

When connecting the USB to any device without connecting a software the printer stops immediately its current print. The display still shows printing but the head just keeps at the latest position. I tried Pause and Resume already but no chance, the print is lost. Is this a know issue? Is there a wo...
