Re: PLA Fading Out - Taz 6 - Dual Extruder v3 - Cura 3.2.21

Are you sure it's not just because you're trying to print a 21um feature using a 500um nozzle?

Re: Capacitive Auto Bed Leveling

Not to derail the conversation, but I have absolutely no problems with the TAZ 6 touch probe leveling. I tuned in my softening temp and then added a slightly cooler pre-wiping temp (which I believe Lulzbot also has in more recent Cura startup scripts). That prevents any oozing during probing. Since ...

Re: 3D Software 2018

I gave up on FreeCAD and went to Fusion360 and my frustration level dropped significantly.

Re: Broke heat break when trying to change nozzle on Aerostruder

My guess is that someone inadvertently put a part of the "assembly" steps into the "change nozzle" steps when typing that up...

Re: Filament colours? What's available and where?

Did you try matterhackers? I know that in Pro PLA and "basic" ABS they have a tan color that looks pretty fleshy to me...not sure about what colors they have in their Pro ABS...

Re: No one talking about Quiver and the switch to Titan Aero?

Does it look like the printhead for quiver/TAZ 7 may be a different configuration than the currently available Aerostruder? I'm asking because my TAZ 6 currently has a Titan Aero from itworks3d on it...one of their "early" ones that was not "mirrored". When I look at mine, the idler tension knob is ...

Re: TAZ Head v2.1 clogging

Heat creep still happens with the v2.1 head? I've been using Excelfil 2.85mm PLA exclusively and have never had an issue. My Taz 6 has 10 full spools through it at this point, with print times typically ranging from 5 - 16 hours. Not a single failed print, and all of those hours were done at 0.2mm l...

Re: Taz 6 Retracting too much before leveling?

I apologize if this sounds silly, but is there any chance that your previous print failed / was aborted (maybe during auto-leveling but before extruding), and you had to try again? If so, then (when combined with this last print attempt) you effectively had retracted 2x the normal filament but the p...

Re: Taz 6 Bed leveling fail.

Very interesting. I guess I thought of that, but dismissed it because you said the front right corner touched down ok. I figured that if both the front left and front right touched ok, then it couldn't be the X axis. I guess I learned something today. :) Talking about the Z-axis, I'll mention this j...

Re: Taz 6 Bed leveling fail.

Wow, I haven't ever seen that on mine. I'm sorry that I don't have a suggestion for you.
