New Taz 6 - Layer change problems

Hi all! I upgraded from a Mini to a Taz 6 at Christmas and I'm trying to dial things in. I'm finding that my layer changes are leaving a significant seam, and on most prints there are blobs as the layer starts. I use the latest Cura build, and I'm working with Matter hacks 3.0mm PLA and I've changed...

Re: Mini struggling with small detail circles

I do sometimes use a fan, but I was getting stringing on the more delicate prints. I'll try a less aggressive fan.

I haven't measured the filament. It's a Village PLA, so it looks like it's time to get a micrometer... Since I'm planning on a lot more printing. :)

Thank you for the info!

Re: Mini struggling with small detail circles

I did find that spacing and multiples was the answer, the results have been solid. IMG_20170331_080811.jpg Then I got confident about detailed pieces and have been working on LeFab Shop's Eiffel Tower, and the results, while kind of fun, haven't been... smooth. I don't mean to ask too many questions...

Re: Mini struggling with small detail circles

Just by way of update, I printed 6 of the same piece above and got a pretty good result from one of them. I think if I printed 7 it may do even better, but I think I need to play with the minimum time feature so I don't have to use quite as much filament.

Re: Mini struggling with small detail circles

Thanks Jim, The idea of printing a second option is one I hadn't considered. I kind of came to the conclusion that maybe my extruder is simply to large for this kind of detail, but given that this remains a learning process, I will definitely give your suggestions a try. I appreciate you taking the ...

Mini struggling with small detail circles

I'm still pretty new to the 3D world, so I'm playing with a lot of settings to get things right. This is the second time I've tried to do the top of something delicate and both times when I get to the top, I lose all slice height consistency and the shape integrity is lost. In this print, the rest o...
