Re: TAZ 6 with e3d v6 - plenty of issues

You might want to make sure your cura settings match your new nozzle. I had issues when I replaced my (then stock) .4 nozzle with a (now stock) .5 nozzle. Next, if you got the hardened steel nozzle it will not heat nearly as well as the brass one, but will be less sticky. The plated brass nozzles fr...

Re: dual extruder options?

I think I fixed my dual extruder by adding a better 5v fan to cool the heat break. I used a fan with double the CFM than the stock one and so far have not gotten heat creep since the mod. Still experimenting on the fix.

Re: heat creep

I have upgraded both my Standard Taz6 and Dual V3 extruders with new fans. Lulzbot sells the pins. Here https://www.lulzbot.com/store/parts/molex-sl-22-24-awg-crimp-terminal-pin-x30 Before my V3 nozzle could only print for about 40 minutes before nGen got melted in the heat-break (1 plug was almost ...

Re: NGen Removal From TAZ6

For people still reading this thread. Be careful to check carefully anything that has "rubbing alcohol" on the label. Some of these even in concentrations of 70% and higher also have a Glycerin lubricant built in which will make it difficult for anything to stick to your print bed. I would assume th...

Re: Filament stuck in taz 6 dual v3

After finally clearing the blockage in Extruder 2 (by intentionally letting heat creep with the cooling fan removed), I had to do a lot of cold pulls and some other things to get my extruder path clear enough to use again. Then, I exchanged the 5V fan with this one "Noctua NF-A4x20 5V, 3-Pin Premium...

Re: Dual Head V3 VERY inconsistent

I think when you tell people to "Power off the printer" you need to make sure the power cable and the USB cable are both disconnected. A friend used a brass brush to clean the gunk off the nozzle and got a bit of a shock with the power off. Never happened when removing power to both USB and power ca...

Re: Dual V3 - A Review - Wait for V4? - Heat Creep Still A Problem

I've had almost nothing but problems with the V3 toolhead. I have heard rumors that it's a LOT better if you add a fan with a lot more CFM. I wish I had an alternative but my stock head just broke off the nozzle after only about 350 prints.

Re: 1.75 mm Filament Options

I and one of my neighbors who also has a Taz 6 have had good success (sometimes better than the standard 3mm filaments) with 1.75mm. I have only tried on the stock ToolHead, my dual V3 tool head is finicky and currently on hiatus until I have the patience to deal with it.

Re: TAZ 5 Dual Extruder V3 Questions

The v3 dual extruder nozzles are longer, a.k.a “volcano” type. Be sure you get those kind for this tool head. No need to replace the 2nd nozzle if it’s not needed. It’s not worth taking the chance of breaking the head by replacing it with an un needed nozzle. I broke my original head by trying to f...
