Re: Is there a way to put a dual extruder fan on the taz5

The 6 has an X maximum endstop as well as the X minimum endstop found on all previous Taz units. I believe the cutout allows clearance for that actual endstop switch, which mounts off the right hand side fan somehow. You can see it here: https://ohai.lulzbot.com/project/taz-6-extruder-assembly/taz-...

Re: Is there a way to put a dual extruder fan on the taz5

Yes. The only modifications required are the wiring to split the fan signal to the second fan. Edit: make sure you grab the new carriage mount socket piece (the small bottom piece that the triangle wedge shaped piece on the extrude carriage goes in) too, it has a cutout on it that you may need for ...

Re: Mini, Raspberry Pi 2, Octopi, Octoprint, Cura – Help?

Just out of curiosity, why didn't get you a RasPi 3 instead? Same price nowadays it seems. Thats what I'm running my Octoprint on with my Mini.

Whats the difference with the Y support 1.0 and 2.0 and the Corner 1.1 vs 2.0?

Re: Problems with ABS

I've had success with printing parts side by side. I had this same issue printing one small herringbone gear. I find that as the hotend lingers in the same area, it just gets too hot and increasing the fan is too aggressive on the cooling. Letting it cool on its own while the hotend is building the ...

Re: Cura ignores support structure

Try this one. extruder_body_3mm5ex_v1.3.2_fixed.stl I do tend to use the optimized gcode files they have available myself for several years now. But several months ago someone else had issues with printing that STL file and I found that the supports did not print correctly, so I put the model throu...

Re: Cura ignores support structure

I am using the .5 nozzle on the Mini and when it did print on my Taz, I was using the .35 nozzle. Ill give the fixed STL a shot.

Re: Cura ignores support structure

The extruder body STLs provided by Lulzbot have supports designed into the object. So you should be able to print as is... no supports. For instance, the concentric circles in the last picture of your original post are supports. The tapered screw holes will print without supports... I am aware that...

Re: Cura ignores support structure

Even when I use Cura to print support "touching the build plate" it still does not print.

Cura ignores support structure

Trying to print the extruder body for the taz and the .STL already has a support structure designed into it. For some reason, Cura does not print the smaller (repeating circles ) structure. When I view it in "layer" view, it also disappears.
