Re: Any Interested in Manufacturing Parts?

Thanks Tyth, I sent an email. There are lots of services where you can order 3D printed parts. 3D Systems and Proto Labs for instance, where you can upload a part, pick a material, and get a quote back. Are you saying that Lulzbot has an offering like this? I was thinking more along the lines of coo...

Any Interested in Manufacturing Parts?

I am preparing a product for Kickstarter in the fall. You can view a picture of an older prototype here: https://roboppics.com If people subscribe on Kickstarter, I might need to print and assemble 10 - 50 of these in response to the Kickstarter campaign. It is 90% 3D printed on a Taz 6 using PolyMa...

Stop getting LTAZ6_ prepended

How do you get Cura to not prepend :LTAZ6_ at the beginning of the file name?

There is so little room on the small LCD screen on the Taz6 and this just pushes the meaningful part of the file name off the right side.

Re: Do you need a heated bed if you have a heated enclosure?

Ahhh Jim! You got me there. Yes, I was confusing F and C. I absolutely am not going to heat the enclosure to 100C! Makes sense now.

Thank you.

Do you need a heated bed if you have a heated enclosure?

I have an enclosure with a heater.

I am running the temp up well above 100 degrees, the bed temp required for the filament.

If everything in the enclosure is preheated above 100 degrees, is there any reason for even using the heated bed?

Any way to speed it up?

Anyone have any tips on how to speed up printing? Is it worth playing with the Print Speed, Travel Speed, Bottom Layer Speed, Infill Speed, Top/Bottom Speed, Outer Shell Speed, or Inner Shell Speed? Any one of these more helpful than others? Are the Cura defaults already pushing the limit? Or does i...

Re: Printer stops extruding, Chomps filament

Thanks for the info on heat creep. I have a print head with Innova 1800 stuck in it. I heat up the head, but no matter how hard I pull, it will not come out. It was during a long print, so I bet it is due to heat creep. Going to try heating up for a good long time and turn the fans off. Hopefully th...

Re: Installing new belts

Thanks.

Are the steppers likely to have been damaged?

Any way to tell other than trying a print after I install the belts?
