Re: Very bad results, extruder rubbing layer and more..

That sounds like over extrusion to me. Have you calibrated your esteps and then extrusion multiplier for the filament you are using? When I print hatchbox pla on my ender 3 I print at 215c temps and my extrusion multiplier is around .95 if I remember correctly but it will be different depending on n...

Re: TAZ 5 "Y" scaling issue

Have you checked the voltage output from the power supply? The bed is heavy to move and if the stepper is under powered it could cause an issue but I don't think it would be a repeatable issue like you are mentioning.

Re: Taz 6 Prints Rough Initial Layers But The Rest Are Perfect

I don't know if it works mid print or not but after you adjust it and press the knob you then go back a menu and I believe there is the save settings option and it will be saved. I can't check this since I no longer have the stock control board in my taz...I installed a duet wifi mainboard in mine a...

Re: TAZ 6 print size

The usable print dimensions I believe are 280mm x 280mm for length and width and 250mm for height so that would be 11.02" x 11.02" and 9.8" tall. That should be right on the website for the specs of the printer. You can change the orientation a part is being printed to make it fit the bed..like take...

Re: TAZ 5 "Y" scaling issue

The one thing I don't see mentioned is checking the steps for the axis. They can be set through the control on the taz. X and Y should have the same steps if I remember correctly and Z is much higher due to the drive rods. The steps on my Taz6 are X100.50 Y100.50 Z1600.00 and I would assume the Taz ...

Re: Taz 6 Prints Rough Initial Layers But The Rest Are Perfect

Ahh...I would play with the z-offset then to try and bring it closer to the bed for your initial layer. That's available through the control on the taz. Have you printed with any other materials and noticed a problem or is this your first material you are working with on it? I don't know how close y...

Re: Taz 6 Prints Rough Initial Layers But The Rest Are Perfect

I've had that issue with trying to print a cooling duct for my Ender 3 called the petsfang. It has a bottom edge with a curve similar to what your printing and the problem is layer adhesion. It took me a while to figure out I needed a bunch of small supports for the radius edge and once I got them r...

Re: Wanted - Taz 6 - Removable flexible bed mod ideas

I am going to try a heatbed I found on Aliexpress which is a 300watt PCB style with a 3mm aluminum plate and it comes with a spring steel sheet already. The heatbed has magnets under it similar to what the newest Prusa has. Supposedly high temp magnets so it should work at 110c. Long wait time to ge...

Re: Lulzbot TAZ 6 - SHIFT PRINTING PROBLEM

The first things that should be checked when there is layer shifting is belt tension and that the grub screws on the toothed pulleys are tight. You should also make sure the connectors going to the x and y stepper motors are fully seated but be sure to do this with the printer turned off...messing w...
