Taz 6 bed leveling problem

Howdy, I have a Taz 6 and use Cura LulzBot Editin v 3.2.27. It's a real workhorse but I just started having problems with the bed leveling routine. It starts, presses the button then goes in for the second tap where it's using the contact sensor but that never trips. I can tell because the button ge...

Re: Filament 'hair' in prints

Thanks for the tips. I really want to print the straw hut and after 3 attempts I was ready to give up. I'll give it a go with your suggestions and hopefully this'll do the trick!

Thanks,

Tim

Re: nGen De-lamination Problem

That's interesting, I was about to use a spool of white for the first time. Could you post your temperature settings so I could use them? Regards, Tim Having printed with several colors of the nGen now this problem only seems present on the metalic silver color. I wonder if there is something in the...

Filament 'hair' in prints

Howdy, I've been successfully printing quite a bit now but there are still some files that I have real trouble with. Anything that has a lot of small protrusions produces a print covered in 'hair' that is too much to clean up. Most recently I've been trying to print models of grass huts and bare tre...

3rd party nozzles?

Howdy, I want to print a bunch of files I got from a Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/printablescenery/the-lost-islands-3d-printable-terrain-for-rpg-and?ref=user_menu and the suggested nozzle size is .2mm. The nozzle that comes with the Taz 6 is .5. I emailed customer support and go...

Odd question about nGen filament

My youngest is going to be getting a blue tongued skink (reptile) soon and I was wondering if it was safe to use nGen filament to make some terrain for the critter. If not, what would be a good filament?

Regards,

Dirk

Best Use Of Various Filaments

Ok, so now I've made many successful prints all using nGen filament. I'm sufficiently comfortable that I wouldn't mind experimenting somewhat with other filaments so I was wondering if there is a comprehensive document out there somewhere that describes the different filament types and when it is be...

A filament question...

...but not one about printing. I have a question about painting on nGen filament. What sort of paint are people using? Some plastics don't take paint well and before I tried painting some pieces I was wondering what other folks used to paint nGen filament parts.

Regards,

Dirk

Re: I still have yet to make a successful print

The print came out good and I'm starting on a second. I'm now much more comfortable experimenting with some of the settings though I'm still pretty conservative about tweaking things. I'll probably try moving the z axis around a little bit and see what happens. Thanks so much, this is really working...
