Re: [Dual Extruder v3] Disassembly of extruders from heat break

At this point you could probably separate the heat break from the heatsink by unscrewing those very tiny allen head screws, use the smallest Allen wrench from the kit that came with your Taz 6. Once separated you can use a heat gun or flame to melt off the plastic.

Re: Collapsing Katana Test Print Issues

Well I have to admit, that sword looks pretty cool! It looks to like you’re over extruding or over heating a little bit. I have a few suggestions. Maybe dial down your first layer height to the same height as the rest of the print. Change the flow rate to 90% because plastic expands, I get better di...

Re: [Dual Extruder v3] Filament Stops Feeding, Ruins Print, Can't get out Easily

Heat creep is horrendous on the dual v3 and PLA. Recently for the first time I’ve had to take apart the head to get the filament out. But first try this if you can still grab onto the filament from the top where it feeds. Heat up the Extruder to about 180, put a card over the front fan that’s attach...

Re: Newbie needs help

What size is you nozzle? Is it the standard .5 mm or something larger? It still looks to me like a lot of filament is still coming out, as if you're using a large nozzle diameter or a worn out nozzle. Especially if the nozzle is brass, brass is one of the softest metals used for nozzles. You said yo...

Re: Trouble Removing ABS Print

Ahhh yes, I apologize! I was thinking of the ninjaflex filament, you’ll want to use a glue stick when printing with that filament.

Re: Trouble Removing ABS Print

Gotta use a glue stick as a release agent for ABS. When stuck try spraying with a mixture of water and alcohol.

Re: Newbie needs help

Have you tried the bed leveling procedure found in this post? https://forum.lulzbot.com/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=7904 I highly recommend it! It also looks like you may be over extruding. Check your e-steps. In fact, find the tests the help you calibrate your e-steps. If you send 100mm of filament throug...

Re: Taz 6, moving filament reel up top, use filament guide tube or no?

I found without the tube guide the filament will become a bit brittle if you don't print for a while ( a week or 2) and may snap in half within a few moves possibly leaving you with a terrible jam. Other than that, I agree I don't think it's really needed. Perhaps it also helps keep it a little bit ...

Re: Filament Flow Rate Control

Thank you for your response and theory however from what little research I've done I see quite the opposite is true and it should be set lower than the Flow parameter. The information bubble when you hover over the parameter says that this setting is used to compensate for filament " die swell ". A ...

Re: Filament Flow Rate Control

I have a tough time understanding that “Initial Layer Flow Rate”. Should it be set higher or lower then the “Flow” parameter?
