Re: Service Bulletin: Thermistor Issue in Aerostruder and Dual Extruder v3 Tool Heads

This video (from Lulzbot) shows this as their solution for printing PVA... so I am going to trust their marketing and expect it works as they are showing. My dragon sculptures have grown so complicated this is really the only way to print some of them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6P8EZynCk2c Lul...

Re: Service Bulletin: Thermistor Issue in Aerostruder and Dual Extruder v3 Tool Heads

Was ready to make the plunge and use my Christmas "funds" for a Dual Extruder v3... but all of the issues I have been seeing has given me pause. As of December 2018 - have all the issues been worked out? When I search youtube for users who are printing with it - I can only find 1 or two who showed a...

Re: T-nuts for TAZ 6

So to confirm... is it M3 T Nuts we get to be able to drop into the rail without having to disassemble and slide in. Something similar to this: https://www.amazon.com/OCR-T-Nuts-Nickel-Plated-Sliding-M3-50PCS/dp/B07G45FQL4/ref=sr_1_3_sspa?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1545581525&sr=1-3-spons&keywords=m3+T+Nut&ps...

Send that puppy back and buy it direct from Lulzbot. If it looks like that...no telling what else might be wrong.

Batman Bust

I downloaded a Batman bust and batarang from thingaverse...then combined them in Cinema4d and added the name of a 12 year (so my kid could give it to them as a birthday gift). The dimensions are about 8 inches wide by 6 inches tall - give or take. https://vimeo.com/202557822 Printed at .1 from Simpl...

Also needed to learn a real CAD program instead of my animation modeler...so downloaded and started learning Fusion 360 to make this. Wow is parametric modeling different than what I am used to...but I can see the benefits ...

Re: Taz 6 Heated Bed Variances?

Cool - thanks! I will give that a try (I am slicing with Simplify3D). I am already using a .08 offset because it literally was so close it was barely able to squeeze any filament out... (this was with the Simplify3D Taz 6 profile). So I bumped it up to .08. But I have never adjusted the thicker firs...
