Taz 6 not hitting auto level washers at glass corners

I have a taz 6 and when it runs the autolevel before each print the head is not at the center of the z height sensor and gets worse as it moves around to the 4 corners almost missing the 2 washer in the corner.

Tensioner Boby Keeps Breaking

Printing on Acrylic Sheet

Hi,

Is it possible to print on an acrylic sheet on the TAZ 6? Can the z height be adjusted to allow this? Wanted to try and make embossing dies and thought this might be cheaper than printing the whole base.

Re: Over extruded or humidity?

Thank you

I am currently setting up Slic3r with the profiles listed on this site and want to try that. I have seen some settings like you describe in it.

Will report back when new part comes off machine.

Over extruded or humidity?

I recently purchased a TAZ 6 and have gotten decent results for not tweaking anything but i consistently get `bumbs` in my prints and hear popping sounds while extruding. I am using ABS from Matter Hackers and am not sure if it's the material or machine. I have built a `hotbox` to limit airflow from...
