Flush Mount Limit Switch Issue with Autoleveling

I was having issues sensing the first washer during autoleveling because the head wasn't going down far enough to sense the pad. After a while I figured out a trick. It appears that the expected height of the first washer is calculated based on the Z value for when the head presses against the flush...

Switching back to Taz 6 single extruder from dual extruder

It took me a while to figure this out so I thought I'd post in case it helps someone later.

I soldered mine and the temperature variations went away after. I've been following the repairs and they've been soldering...

Dual Extruder V3 - why angle the filament channel?

I've done several multi-hour prints that failed hours into the print because the filament gets stuck in the chamber and quits feeding. This never happened with the single extruder because the channel was straight so the filament didn't have to go through any gymnastics to make it to the nozzle. For ...
