Re: Side fans stopped working

Yes that is the correct diagram! To use the console commands you must have the usb cable connected to the printer and computer (I assume you do). Start Cura, click on the Monitor tab, Under the Manual Control section click on the Connect button, then click on the Console button. The Console screen w...

Re: Wildly inconsistent extrusion at start of print

Something surely isn’t right. I print the minimum skirt I can, 25mm or 1 perimeter whichever is larger is how I think it works. Sounds like you may have a bit of a clog. Probably the best solution would be to heat up the extruder to about 160C, pull out the filament snip it clean above where the gea...

Re: Side fans stopped working

What’s the console command you are using to turn on the fans? Have you tried using the controls in the LCD panel? With a cheap voltmeter you can check if 24v is present on the fan connectors(pins 7 & 8) when the fans are supposed to be on. See illustration in section 11 here: https://ohai.lulzbot.co...

Re: Replacement E3D Thermistor

It’s difficult to say if you got the correct one or not, I don’t think you did. This is the one you want - https://www.lulzbot.com/store/parts/100k-semitec-ntc-thermistor-235mm As that is the one that’s used in the v3 dual print head. None are available on Lulzbot website and I couldn’t find any on ...

Re: Can't replace thermistor

Mmmmm I think this is the one you want - https://www.lulzbot.com/support/100k-semitec-ntc-thermistor-235mm However, they’re out of stock too. I think the most important thing is that it’s a 100k thermistor. However the one Lulzbot used was of 3mm diameter, the one you found is 1.8mm. Look around on ...

Re: 1.75mm clogging - TAZ Pro modified to 1.75mm Titan Aero

Is that PLA with Carbon Fiber? I had a hard time printing that on my Taz 6 v3 Dual Extruder. Seems softer, more affected by heat then regular PLA. I was using PLA with Carbon fiber from Matter Hackers. I would suggest lowering the temperature as much as you can get a way with and print on the lower ...

Re: Cura Supports and Simplify3D Supports

First you may want to play around with the Support Density value. A default value typically is set to 30%, that may be a little high of a value for you especially if you're printing small parts. 10% or less may be a more generous value that will do you well. Secondly, you can adjust the Support to Z...

Re: Any flexible filament toolheads still being sold?

The Dual v3 prints Ninjaflex very well! As does the Aerostruder tool head and I think the standard Taz 6 toolhead can as well. I speak from experience. Temp should be set to 225C to 240C with a speed of 30mm/sec or slower. The default profile for Ninjaflex works well. Be sure your nozzle is clear an...
