Re: Filament always stripping during prints

I just had a similar problem, and followed the instructions to remove the nozzle and then soaked it in acetone for a day. Washed/dried it off the next day, put it back together, and no more clogged nozzle!

Dual extruder AND flexystruder

Re: Print with rubber on your Lulzbot!

What is fundamentally different about the flexystruder and that it requires a whole new extruder? Any chance an existing extruder could be easily modified to print ninjaflex?

Re: TAZ Slic3r profiles

I just got my printer today in the mail! Excited to get started! I just downloaded the 6 ABS slic3r profiles listed here: https://www.lulzbot.com/support/taz-slic3r-profiles And noticed they have 0 for all 4 temperatures in the Filament Settings -> Filament page. Is this normal? I have yet to do my ...
