Thanks. I'll order a new sheet and be sure to watch auto leveling from now on.

Taz 6 print bed damage. What do I need to replace?

I started a print tonight of a small bird whistle using PetG. I went out to check on the print early on and noticed that the nozzle seems to have dug a trench into the top of the print bed. I am attaching a photo of the damage. Any ideas on what might have caused this issue? What do I need to replac...

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!

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.

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...
