Re: Marvin Lamp!

I've had some people ask me if I would make more, so I've started thinking this out in more detail. I am going to cast a limited run out of white porcelain. It will have a brilliant sintered matte surface, and glow even better than the plastic version. It will be elegant and give a modern high-end s...

Marvin Lamp!

I'm kind of Marvin crazy. I wanted to share a Marvin lamp I came up with. I printed it on my Lulzbot TAZ 5...I wanted quality, and it is big, so it took 40 hours! Very glowy and cool. It dims to work as a night-light too. Tell me what you think. I might cast some out of porcelain if there is interes...

Re: TAZ 6 Extruder on TAZ 5

Hi- You don't need to modify the left fan, all you need to do is bend the leaf spring on the end stop switch out a few mm. My TAZ5 required no pin adapter, but you do have to remove the two guide pins on taz 5 plug. The only real issue is that fans are a different brand and don't spin up until 40% w...

Re: Latest Firmware for TAZ5 - advanced development version

Hi- I use(d) a slower unretract than retract...for ABS or PLA I'd retract at 25-30 and unretract at 6-12. Only need about .35 retract if the K value is dialed in well. Hard to say if the FW retraction was what helped blobs or if it is merely the nozzle pressure reduction at the end of a line and bef...

Re: TAZ 6 Extruder on TAZ 5

Thanks Brent,

Another question.

I have a TAZ 5. The fan speed issue still seems to be present even after doing a firmware reflash with the latest cura. The fan doesn't spin up until 30-40%

Should I be running the TAZ 6 firmware?

Best,
J

Re: Latest Firmware for TAZ5 - advanced development version

Yep- I too have gone back to stock. If LulzBot released an official firmware with this tweak, that would be great. Especilly if they could figure out how to do some kind of smoothing alg. that would allow for less frequent adjustments leading to stepper chatter and vibration. I also really like the ...

Re: TAZ 6 Extruder on TAZ 5

Hi Brent,

I have an unrelated question.

I updated to the latest official TAZ firmware with the most recent Cura.

I am finding that my hot end (on the TAZ 6 extruder I just got) won't hold its temperature (225) with the fan over about 90%.

Any thoughts?

Best,
J

Re: Latest Firmware for TAZ5 - advanced development version

Sebastian-

I know you are a busy man!

I love your firmware. I use it all the time.

You'll probably say no, and I understand - could you compile a version of your latest firmware for the TAZ 6? They changed the fans and heater, and so I understand there are some firmware changes.


Best,
J

Re: TAZ 6 Extruder on TAZ 5

Darn! I have been using Sebastian's linear advance firmware for some time - It makes for nicer prints! The compile settings are based on the older firmware from Lulzbot I believe. So, if I were using the old Lulzbot firmware would 100% be the same as 100% on the new, or would the new crank it up eve...
