Re: Circles not so circular

It sounds like you might have a loose belt. That can cause circles to come out of round. When you look at the model on your build plate, if it goes oblong from right to left, try tightening the x-axis belt. If it's oblong front to back, try tightening your y-axis belt.

Re: ABS filament feed problem

Sometimes over tightening the thumbscrews can cause the toolhead to strip out the filament like you are describing. If the problem returns, try loosening them up just a little bit.

Re: Cura won't load any material profiles

It sounds like there might be a previous version of Cura installed on your computer that could be causing it to crash, or your cache needs to be cleared out. Here is where you can find information about clearing your cache on a Windows based computer. https://www.lulzbot.com/learn/tutorials/cura-lul...

Re: Taz 6 filament jamming up.

Can you post a couple pictures showing what the first layer height is looking like? It could be related to your z-offset needing some adjustment.

Re: Taz 6 filament jamming up.

Try setting your gap on your thumbscrews to 5mm with filament loaded into the toolhead. It also sounds like heat creep as b-morgan says. Also, after this happens are you making sure to clean any residual filament out of the teeth on the hobbed bolt?

Re: Taz 6 filament jamming up.

What brand/type of filament are you using, and also the temperature on the hotend? Is it cutting out a bite mark in the filament when you unload it? Also, what toolhead are you using?

Re: Z stuck, belts grinding, problems everywhere

That can do it. Also, double check the smaller black sheathed wires that are located near the large red wires that goes to the thermistor.
