Home Z without X and Y

Hi All, I just got back into 3D printing and i'm wondering why I cant home Z before homing X and Y anymore? I don't have auto leveling functioning right now and i usually just would just set the Z axis around the middle of the bed. Did they program this into the Cura so that you have to set a proper...

I have a Taz 5 and currently i get an error and it will not let me use this button as i do not have the Taz 6 firmware installed. I have the wiper installed for a long time an...

Hot end loosing temp

I have a taz 2, which is modified with all upgrades for the taz 5. Recently I installed the hexagonal hot end. It was running great. I started printing at higher temperature (280-290) as a test. I also was modifying the connector so that I could use my BUDA and hexagonal interchangeably. I'm not sur...

Re: Turning Second Extruder fan ON_TAZ 5

Im sorry to post so much. After all this work, Im just trying to avoid listening to my new 24V super powered fan EVERY time i turn on my machine... But i'm starting to wonder if this fan being on ALL (even when idling) the time is crucial to the hot-end performance. Is controlling it via gcode stupi...

Re: 5v Blower fan

I have a 24V system and I ended up hooking up a 24V fan for my filament cooling fan. I cant figure out how to turn it on now. The M106 P1 F255 command turns the 2 side fans on instead of my "second extruder fan" with the Taz 5 Firmware. The Taz 4.1 firmware lets me use M106 to turn it only the one f...

Re: 5v Blower fan

I already use this port to power my filament cooling fan. my filament cooling fan is also 12v. Every time i try to test this aux connctor a blow a fuse on the rambo...
