Mintemp error

My taz 5 is getting a mintemp error message after i loosened the heat sink to fix a jam. This wire is sticking out, I assume the temp sensor. When I touch it to tube between the heat sink and block (I forgot what that's called) it turns on normally. Did I accidentally rip this wire apart? There is a...

Re: Sanding PEI

Ya I noticed the uneven heating on the bed with an infrared thermometer. I don't know what you mean by "the X and or Y axis openbuilds extrusions" though...

Re: Sanding PEI

Piercet are you saying there is always the option to buy an Aluminum bed and replace the glass/PEI stock bed? If I sand it I def want to be as conservative as possible. Just enough to slightly rough up the surface. I'll probably just avoid acetone then. Piercet what do you use when printing ABS? hra...

Sanding PEI

Because I can't get ABS to stick on stock Taz 5 bed. (PLA is fine though) Alright so I've read through a bunch of the stuff on the forums and far as I can tell the only thing left to try is sanding the bed. Clean bed religiously with isopropyl alcohol✓ Verified 110C bed 240 Hotend✓ Cardboard enclous...

Re: Printer making funky sound, not working

They do look oddly loose in that pic. Mine are also nearly all the way compressed as well. Maybe I was experimenting to see ifthat changed anything or something.

Re: Printer making funky sound, not working

Oh it would also make a comparatively lower pitched and loud beep every 3-8 minutes. Sounded almost like a "wrong answer" sound you might hear on a game show.

Re: Printer making funky sound, not working

The small gear looks slightly worn but still in decent shape, the printer is less than a month old. With the steppers locked, I couldn't move the small gear at all, or the large gear. The bolt on the small gear didn't tighten any further. The teeth on the hobbed bolt look clean and the bearing rolls...

Printer making funky sound, not working

So my printer stopped printing correctly (looks like its not extruder enough at random intervals) and then I noticed its making a rattling sound when it retracts. Has this happened to anyone? I couldn't find anything that felt loose or rattly... IMG_20160109_082729.jpg https://youtu.be/4eN_GRTMvic A...

Re: Sloppy bottom layer

Alright, I coulda sworn I could barely get a 0.11mm thick piece of paper under neither but maybe I should have rechecked before I posted this. If it IS too high up, does it eventually correct itself because the layers cool slightly taller from the lack of pressure, eating away at the height differen...
