Re: Can't Connect - Mini 2

LulzBot support is available 24/7 by phone or email. I'd suggest you start a conversation with them.

It appears that this filament is only available in 1.75mm. If you found it in 2.85mm, please post a link.

Re: Tax 5 with dual extruder v3 using one extruder

I'd create a dummy material with as low as possible temperatures and tell CuraLE to use that in the second extruder. There is a minimum temperature below which the Marlin firmware will not allow extrude commands. I going to guess (from the Marlin config file) that the minimum temperature is 120 but ...

Re: printing bottom layer in circles not stripes

The pattern of printing is generated by your slicer and while you mentioned a TAZ 6 printer, you didn't mention what slicer you are using. I'm going to assume you are using CuraLE the latest version (3.6.3). You will need to click on Custom Print Setup and then scroll down to the Shell section (or t...

Re: Increasing Build Height for TAZ6

The firmware is the code in the printer controller board that converts GCode into the signals that drive the stepper motors, nozzle and bed heaters, etc. For the TAZ 6 (and the other LulzBot printers) this firmware is a version of Marlin , an open source project. The printer controller board is a RA...

Re: limitations with cura

For the single extruders, the S3D start code should be line for line identical except for those lines with a {Cura variable} on them. These lines should either have [S3D variable] or a constant number to replace the {Cura variable}. For the dual extruder, the topic I referenced before explains the a...

Re: New Taz 6, tool head screw position misaligned?

I had a similar issue with my Dual Extruder V3. The bottom wedge of the dual extruder was a tighter fit than the stock single extruder. Since a slight misalignment of the single extruder isn't critical and the fit was looser, I was always able to get the top screw to fit. I solved my issue by loosen...

Re: limitations with cura

I use both CuraLE and Simplify3D and have experimented with other slicers like IceSL, KISSlicer, Slic3r, Pathio. CuraLE is based on Ultimaker Cura but not the latest version so I have used Ultimaker Cura as well. I have "translated" the CuraLE start code to each of these slicers so that the Gcode pr...

Re: Why is my full model not printing?

What was the nozzle size on the printer that printed this successfully? What is the nozzle size that fails? What slicer was used for the successful print?

You might try a smaller layer height and a smaller line width and see if it slices correctly.
