Re: Cura LE v3.2.18, Beta Slicing Profile Discussion Thread

I've been testing 3.2.19, but this is the thread I found to post in - let me know if this one is outdated. I print with a Taz 5 with Dual V3. With the dual extruder, it's of course very common to print single extrusion jobs. I haven't found a great way to slice a single extrusion job without manuall...

Dual extruder v3 - heat creep solved?

I've got a Taz5 with the stock single extruder which has never reliably printed PLA without eventually jamming due to heat creep. I've had to mod the extruder with a larger heat sink fan to solve the problem. I'm now thinking of purchasing the v3 Dual head, but I'd like to know if it's been known to...

Dual Extruder - what should I expect?

I've been considering purchasing the dual extruder (non flexy). I really don't care for multicolor prints in the same materials, the only use I would have for it would be to use dissolvable supports. My hope is to print in PLA, with PLA supports except for the dense support layers, which I'd want to...

Re: Latest Firmware for TAZ5 - advanced development version

If I recall you need to use a hex file with Cura. I recommend learning how to update with arduino direct from the code. This way you can alter and keep a record of the PIDs for your extruder(s) and bed, and also the K value for Lin_Advance, which can't be changed any other way that I am aware of. Y...

Re: Latest Firmware for TAZ5 - advanced development version

If you are using a programer, make sure that you use the firmware with bootloader. Use at your own risk. Vitor Henrique Stupid question: If I'm flashing through Cura's firmware update function, which do I need? I don't remember needing to care about this with other RAMPS, etc firmware flashes. Than...

Re: Latest Firmware for TAZ5 - advanced development version

If anyone compiles the new Marlin for a Taz 5 before I get to it, I'd appreciate a post of the config'd source files or .hex. I went back to stock FW for a while because of the grinding noises during tight curves, but ended up going back to Sebastian's .hex because the results were so nice. A few mi...

Re: Latest Firmware for TAZ5 - advanced development version

This makes me so excited, thanks Sebastian! I haven't compiled FW for the Taz before - it's been a couple years since I config'd Marlin and compiled a hex, but this is a great reason to relearn.

Can I use most of the settings from Lulzbot's latest config.h?

Re: Latest Firmware for TAZ5 - advanced development version

I've been doing some reading, and it seems like perhaps further improvement to the linear advance function may be impractical with the current controller hardware. A Smoothieboard or Duet would have extra resources to devote to the computation overhead, but I think the ATMega2560 is pretty much tapp...

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: Latest Firmware for TAZ5 - advanced development version

For now I've switched back to stock firmware, but this advance feature is phenomenally useful. I'll be waiting to see where it goes from here. If K values become easy to change (maybe like material presets for temperature in stock Lulzbot firmware), and the chattering noise on curves is lessened or ...
