Re: E-steps and Z Offset Differences Between Different Filaments and Nozzles

Been there, done that! I had a nice mishap from having a dirty nozzle where it pushed on those washers during levelling enough where it gouged the bed. Thank goodness it was not too deep as I was able to sand it away but now I make sure every print starts properly and the nozzle is clean as a whistl...

E-steps and Z Offset Differences Between Different Filaments and Nozzles

Greetings everyone! Looking for some info. I finally got around to building my spare extruder for my TAZ 6, swapping out my printed parts with the strengthened models and swapped over to a micro swiss .3mm nozzle as well. Next up is refreshing my original extruder, same treatment but a .5mm micro sw...

Re: TAZ 6 grinding PLA. HELP!

I had a very similar problem. What material have you sent through it? I have noticed that some filaments have a tendency to stay in the extruder, I think due to their extrusion temps as well as additives if it has any. I switch between HTPLA, eSun PLA+, and PETG. I cannot pinpoint which one causes m...

Re: Comprehensive List of TAZ Modifications

Would the extruder mod for the TAZ 5 work on the TAZ 6? I am looking for something to take away the play in the extruder assembly and this mod looks perfect. just curious if it will fit the 6 or if someone has made a 6 modification?

Re: Recommended settings for eSun PLA+?

Attached are a good starting point for the PLA+ that I use. I change them a little here and there depending upon the part, but these should get you started.

Re: Imprint from Bed on First layer

Gentlemen, thank you once again. I lightly wet sanded the bed with 2000 grit and the marks are no more! While I was at it I calibrated e-step (only off by 2mm) and added .025 to the z-offset. I cleaned up the nozzle real nice and the leveling disks as well. Now when it goes to auto level, no flex or...

Re: Imprint from Bed on First layer

Looks like I am going to get some 2000+ grit paper. I don't have anything like that handy.

I will also double check the Z-offset and do some calibrations.

Thank you both!

Re: Imprint from Bed on First layer

I have printed in other filaments, no issues. Using the makergeek and 3D Fuel, these start printing and stop halfway through, all chewed up when I pull the filament out. Those marks on the bed are from the actual support from when I removed the one print I had done that used them. if it was from the...

Imprint from Bed on First layer

Can someone tell me what they heck is going on here? I have a TAZ 6, just a few months old. I got a roll of the Raptor PLA form Makergeek and it never printed fully, always getting chewed up. The first print I attempted had support inside and while the print never finished, it left a cross-hatch imp...

Re: Bites on filament

I get the same issue with the second half of a roll of 3D Fuels APLA and the entire roll of Makergeek Raptor. I am no expert but I have tried drying my filament out in a dehumidifier and it did not help one bit. Tried with all different settings, turning retraction off, etc. Nothing. All of my other...
