Cura 14.09 Nesting questions

I have installed Cura 14.09 Lulzbot edition. Printing with a TAZ 3,4,5 Nesting, - I am attempting to nest parts on the bed. To optimize my bed space I often space parts about 1-2 mm apart. Cura will auto bump/adjust the parts loaded on the bed to about 3-5 mm. - I would like to nest parts within non...

Re: PEI for TAZ <5

I use the 0.0625 as well. Both sides came shiny as well. None of the sheets ever came flat. I put the sheet on the bed as "dish up". I use the alligator clips to hold it down securely. The TAZ5 sheet is superior to what I can hand finish, for sure. The Amazon sheets have 1 gloss and 1 matte side. Th...

Re: PEI for TAZ <5

I would love to have a source for the sheets WITHOUT the adhesive. I have been in production with PEI (sourced from Mcmaster-carr and Amazon) for about 6 months now. I have been using on my TAZ3s and 4s. I alligator clip to glass and just bend off the parts. I do not have to wait for the bed to cool...

Re: Simplify3D is a software improvement

I have to say thank you for the review Rynmiller & nopick. Software is worth every penny.
More control and my output is instantly better with initial settings. Tweaking now and they are getting even better.

Re: Searching for the perfect bed surface.

Have not printed much on this bed since the last update. Today I made some more progress. Printed the same part in the same location for 5 prints now. Haven't touched the bed. http://cvestal.smugmug.com/photos/i-BPbfNRH/0/L/i-BPbfNRH-L.jpg http://cvestal.smugmug.com/photos/i-D8XmPkP/0/L/i-D8XmPkP-L....

Searching for the perfect bed surface.

I have great luck with hairspray and my AO-101. Since getting 2 TAZ3s I have been running Kapton/Pet tape. I still get frustrated with Kapton / PET tape. Most of my frustration is chasing bubbles and having to re-apply ABS juice every print. One of my TAZ3s was in need of new tape. I decided to test...
