Re: Have issues and been fiddling with it for 3 weeks

Right stop fiddling! Check your E-Steps on your extruder- you might be over extruding filament- sounds complicated, is in fact very easy to fix- there is a how to do it on this website. (took me ten minutes to do, oh you'll need a felt tip marker for that one) Recheck your STL file by going to Netfa...

Re: ABS filament damaging bed, want alternative recommendations

On the TAZ 6 the PEI is listed as a consumable, The ABS print temperature I use is at 105 and with Luzebot's advice I now move the printing around the plate to make the PEI last longer. I found that ABS if done this way makes the surface last about 40+ prints in that exact place (my prints last abou...

Re: New PEI Added

Just done it myself- there is a youtube video done by lulzbot that explains how easy it is (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PH_L0xvZBrs) - takes about two and half hours- oh and its very messy. Put the PEI in the freezer for an hour. Get a paint scrapper/stripper and begin to peel off the PEI- it sh...

Re: PETG profile????

Thank you for answering. Sorry for a being a right pain... High layer height?,(I'm unfamiliar with this setting- I've never needed to adjust this before) Would the surface of the printed piece suffer with the quality of the finished thing. Is there a way round that factor too? (like using acetone on...

PETG profile????

Ok this question has probably been asked a million times already! I've done some research, looked on here, even asked the makers of the filaments I've bought for their advice- And what do I get for my time... A mixture of conflicting advice, I know that Cura doesn't have a profile as such for the TA...

Re: Bubbles Under Brand New Heated Beds (Yes Plural)

Yeah mine has done the same! huge bubble at he back that distorts the print- at first I thought it could be a problem with the surface being dirty, so I cleaned it thoroughly and so this morning I saw a massive bubble at the back- and thought "oh s***!" sounds like everyone is having a similar probl...

Re: Filament colours? What's available and where?

Clever idea but a tad messy? Matterhackers is a bit on the expensive side and I think its a US company- so postage costs would be prohibitive? (not sure) I live in the UK so import taxes are a bit of a problem with anything over £100 coming in. ( lots of experience with ebay on that one!) I've done ...

Re: Vacuum sealed? Yes or No

That's good to know, although I haven't got round to using the PETG I got as yet- I thought that keeping it in sealed containers was probably a good idea.

Re: Filament colours? What's available and where?

Seems like some people are out to make money off anything these days! Did you hear about the young lady who wasn't allowed to recharge her arm because the people in the room thought it was a toy and wouldn't let her access to a power point! Getting back to filaments I did find some flesh coloured st...

Filament colours? What's available and where?

This question has probably been asked a million times, so I've been looking around and some of the links on this website no longer work (usually old outdated links). I wish to print out in several special unusual colours for several projects I have in mind- I have found some, but their expensive and...
