Re: Side fans stopped working

You can usually clear those jams by covering the hotend fan and setting the hotend to 230. Gently tug on the filament while the hotend warms up. It will usually release when the cool section of the hotend gets warm due to the lack of cooling caused by the blocked fan.

Re: Extruder Jamming in Hotend

If it is a fan problem, it would be the fan blowing on the hotend heatsink. You should be fine at 73F. If your fan is moving a good amount of air, the tension is correct on the filament idler and your filament is within spec, you might try extruding some filament oiled with canola oil. It generally ...

Re: Extruder Jamming in Hotend

We run a lot of PLA on several machines. Generally, heat creep jams are due to a room that is too warm or a failing heatsink fan. If your room is warmer that the mid 70s F, try cooling it down a bit. If the room is cool enough, try replacing the fan. Sometimes these fans appear to be working well bu...

Re: Upgrade Options Taz 4

IT Works has a selection of quality toolheads for the Taz. I am running three of the linked part on Taz 5 and 6 machines. They have been very reliable over thousands of hours of printing. The newer Lulzbot toolheads are also an improvement over the old Hexagon based units but they do cost more and t...

Re: Is ABS Dishwasher Safe/OK?

Warping is a possibility in the dishwasher. You will just have to test it.

Re: Aerostruder Tool Head Partial Jams

If you take the nozzle off, you can heat it with a torch or heat gun in an attempt to remove what ever contamination is causing the problem. You can also soak the nozzle in Scigrip 4 solvent to get all the plastic and gunk out of it. Or, you can just install a new nozzle. To be honest, I can't remem...

Re: Taz 6 "Farm"

For six printers, Octoprint is probably your best option. You would not need to carry around SD cards if you are using Octoprint. I asked a similar question to Lulzbot support a while back and received this answer. Our 3D printing cluster runs 155 LulzBot 3D Printers 24 hours a day, seven days a wee...
