Re: Removing GT2, 16 Teeth Timing Pully

Here's one I found on Amazon that uses an M4 set screw that I think is compatible. https://www.amazon.com/DROK-Aluminum-Timing-Pulley-Printer/dp/B019GI5DVC/ref=sr_1_2 But I want to be sure before I order the replacement. Maybe you or others can comment. Followup: Well I ordered the above and they s...

Re: Removing GT2, 16 Teeth Timing Pully

IIRC I had to use an imperial hex key as opposed to metric. I believe I read it here somewhere, but it was a tight fit with no slop like it should be. Thanks for the reference and thread link. Still seems to be a bad choice of a set screw size for them. Here's one I found on Amazon that uses an M4 ...

Removing GT2, 16 Teeth Timing Pully

I have been trying to remove the GT2 timing pully https://www.lulzbot.com/store/parts/gt2-16-teeth-timing-pulley from my X & Y axis motors on my TAZ 6 in order to adjust it for some motor vibration reducers. I was able to remove the X axis using a 1.25 mm hex wrench with a little work, but the Y axi...

Re: Time Lapse Print Recording

A turnkey solution is Matterhacker's Touch https://www.matterhackers.com/store/printer-accessories/mattercontrol-touch-t10 , but I use Octoprint, which is lower cost. All you need for Octoprint is a Raspberry Pi, a case (which you can 3d print) and power supply (5 Volt 2.5 amp maximum depending on w...

Re: TAZ 6 Power Consuumption

For surge protection, you really need it normally to cover at most, say 1 minute of time, but must be capable of supplying the full power for that minute. I have a TAZ 6, and these are actual measurements. The power used by each electrical component are; Support Electronics about 9 watts, 19 VA Bed ...

Re: Sealing the electronics box air tight?

While I have not started on my enclosure box, my intent is to have the entire electronics box outside the box with the left side of my TAZ 6 being permanent. I have read others have/intend to separate the box from the left side, and reconnect it with longer screws and separators to put the left side...

Re: Simple filament runout sensor

The switch is wired to the two rightmost pins of the X-Max header. Pin 24 is used for the X-Max limit switch or for servo2 (starting from 0). I don't know if this makes sense, but let me throw it out there. I am basing this on a TAZ 6 that I have. The X-max switch is used on the Single Extruder V2,...

Re: Extruder decision advice for library - FlexiDually, Dual Extruder

Running a dual extruder is at least 10x more complicated than a single extruder. I would run as fast as possible from the idea of offering it to the general public. Based on the current level of 3D printing software maturity (and hardware as well) I think that you will become extremely frustrated w...

Re: Extruder decision advice for library - FlexiDually, Dual Extruder

I'm no expert, in fact, I've really just started in the process of 3D printing a month back with a TAZ 6. But I have an engineering background, so it may be easier for me than others. However, let me give you my take on things. 1st of all, the TAZ 6 supposedly can take 1.75mm filament (though not su...
