Re: How fast does PLA absorb moisture

When I switch from PetG back to PLA I load it at 230C and extrude it until PLA comes out, (usually liquified). Perhaps you still have some PetG still in there? I would also suggest doing that and cool it down to 160c then retracting it. 60mm seems to be a good number for this. Thinking this action t...

Re: Taz 6 Fillament real holder problems

Ok, I was actually able to duplicate this by unwinding a spool with about 1/4 of the filament left. What a mess when it’s off the spool! To put It back on the spool I had to rotate, flip and spin the spool in multiple directions, whatever it took to get it back on. As I print with it now it’s coming...

Re: Taz 6 Fillament real holder problems

I’m assuming the spool just sits on that triangular shaped structure, if so, why can’t you just lift it up and turn the entire spool left or right and rotate the filament back on the roll until it lines up correctly like thread on a spool? It looks to me as if you had the spool on the Lulzbot provid...

Re: Taz 6 Auto Level Failure - Print Bed Too Low

Did it come with a Dual Printhead? Or was there one ever installed and used by that printer? Check if there's a Z-axis switch extension mechanism installed. For a visual reference see this reference step 11: https://ohai.lulzbot.com/project/lulzbot-taz-dual-extruder-tool-head-v3-install/ With that i...

If that don't work you can try this Gcode:

Then auto home with G28

Re: HS Tool Head 0.8 Made a expensive mistake

It’s just as easy to get out as the standard nozzle just more threads. Use the same method, heat it up, shut the printer off, hold the heater block from twisting with a wrench or pliers, unscrew nozzle. Yes mine is working good, in fact, I think I like the volcanoes are better because of the longer ...

Re: HS Tool Head 0.8 Made a expensive mistake

I’m not sure what you mean that you can’t buy a .4 volcano nozzle? I just bought some on amazon for my dually v3. eBay sells them too. What you can’t find is, is a .5 volcano nozzle unless you by it directly from E3D in the UK.

Markforged 3D printers may be a good candidate too.

Re: Lulzbot Taz 6: Different Nozzles

The ruby nozzle won’t work on the TAZ 6 because the auto leveling feature is sensed through the nozzle via capacitance I think. Never put anything conductive on the nozzle (i.e. wire brush, water, wrench) on the nozzle while the printer is on else you’ll probably blow the micro fuse and have to deal...

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.
