Taz 6 and wood filament

I am debating getting some wood filament to try out with my Taz 6. (single extruder)
Are there any issues when using the wood or bamboo filaments? Nozzle damage? Other issues?

Re: Preparing model gets stuck at 50%

I downloaded the 3.6.1 again and the model sliced with support quickly with no lockups.
Thanks!

There isn't a release candidate but there is a version 3.6.1 (and now 3.6.2)
I'll submit the issue to the workboard

Preparing model gets stuck at 50%

CURA LE 3.6.1 I have a model from Thingiverse https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2669646/files Part #3 When I set the prep the model to create the gcode file it gets stuck at about the 50% mark. (just shows "Slicing...") The STL is about 652KB. Any idea why CURA cannot prepare the file? I discovered ...

Noise when extruder near the top coming downward

My Taz6 is making a loud noise (z axis) when I run it near the top and then back down. Should I apply lithium to the large screws on both sides or is this something else causing the noise? The rods look clean.

Reducing heat creep in Taz 6 single extruder

If i run larger prints with pla (small room) sometimes i get the filament gouged which basically stops the print since no more filament can be pushed in. Are there any methods (some sort of fan attachment) that would stop heat creep from softening the filament?

Re: Changing filament option requires two times to work

No I am using CURA LE but I'm changing the filament from the LCD screen on the TAZ 6 directly. I select change filament option and it goes through the motions to extract then waits for you to indicate the new filament is in place and ready to continue. So far every time I do this, the first time the...

Where do you submit a bug for a firmware issue?

I've worked with the CURA LE programmers regarding bugs but where do you go to submit a bug in firmware (Marlin?)

Changing filament option requires two times to work

I am using a TAZ 6 lulzbot and the current firmware (Marlin 1.1.9.11 8/28/2018) and whenever I try to change the filament, on the first attempt the printer goes back to the correct spot to start back up but sits there. If I initiate the change filament a second time, then it works correctly. I reali...
