Re: Taz 6 + Filament Sentinel = Modified Firmware...

Hi,

Wondering if anyone has any updates on this or if anyone has tried to implement. As far as I know, Taz 6 now has the required Marlin firmware but wondering if anyone has actually implemented.

Thanks!

Taz 6 + Filament Sentinel = Modified Firmware...

Hi All, I bought a Filament Sentinel on Kickstarter because I print very large prints that tend to run out of filament. The instructions tell me that I need to make some firmware modifications: Wiring Check your board specification for the required pins Determine your [DIGITAL PIN INPUT]  pin number...

Re: Endstops hit: X - layer shifts

So an update...I re-ran the print and the failure occurs exactly as before. Literally the exact same error, same amount of layer shift, etc. I'm wondering if this might be a problem with the Gcode perhaps? I will try to re-process the model and try again. Hmm Update 2: It appears it might have been ...

Re: Life Size T-Rex Skull

It's all printed and assembled now less the teeth which I'm working on. The plan is to post process it and make a mold then cast a few resin copies of it. Parts were welded together using 2 methods 1. with a 3Doodler and the same filament used to print. 2. With a soldering iron with adjustable temp ...

Endstops hit: X - layer shifts

Hi All, Just started a print after a little break ~2 months of using the machine and after a small relocation of the printer and I'm getting an error on the display of endstop hit: x and causing a layer shift that ruined the print. Luckily it didn't waste much filament but it's still annoying. Can a...

Taz 6 Extruder Harness Snagging Prints Leading to Failue

So I have discovered that the harness hose that is zip tied to the frame binds against very large prints in the build volume when the printer gets close to full height in the print leading to failure. I noticed a huge gash in the hose where it caught my last print before it ripped a 48 hour print of...

Re: Taz 6 Layer Shift after 24 Hours - Happened twice at around same spot

Hi the same thing happened again today but it looks like I can se what happened.... the print got caught in the cable connected to the extruder and caused the whole thing to shift. Has anybody come up with a way to secure the cable so it never gets in the way? Also the supports keep failing on me an...

Re: Taz 6 Layer Shift after 24 Hours - Happened twice at around same spot

The shift occurred relative to the bed I guess (Front to back). The rolls seem to be spooled cleanly and there doesn't seem to be much in the way of resistance. The other odd thing is that the shift occurred on 2 separate prints at roughly the same point, I'd say about 200 mm off of the print bed. I...

Taz 6 Layer Shift after 24 Hours - Happened twice at around same spot

Hi, I am printing several full envelope prints and have had a layer shift of about 1 cm forward (x?) on 2 of my most recent prints. This happened after 24 full hours of printing so its a huge waste of filament. I'll try to salvage it with my 3D Pen but it's just annoying. I'm not sure what is happen...

Life Size T-Rex Skull

Hi all! Just got my first FDM printer, Taz 6 and am loving it so far. Took me a while to get used it as I came from a DLP system. Now that I have some of the settings under control I'm going from broke and printing a project I've been working on for 3 years on and off. Life size T-Rex Skull. Here is...
