Re: Cura says there's a new firmware but is an older one

Thank you, for your answer. In that case I think I'll roll back to the suggested fw from cura. It should be the most stable one I think, right?

I sell them, I am currently out of metal backplate and will need to get more cut, but I can produce all the other parts at the moment. Also I designed them, so there is that heh. My rates are not inexpensive, but if you are interested in San send you the price list.
I've sent you a PM :)

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

I've tried to calibrate the extruder a couple of time (can't figure out why one day is ok and the next one is 2mm/1.80mm different). After that, using a polimaker PLA I've achieved a pretty good result trying to print benchy:

I'm using Hatchbox 3.00mm PLA (bed temperature 55/60 C, extruder temperature 160/200 C) and I sliced mainly with lulz...

Re: Taz 5 and upgrades from Aliexpress?

You are right, the fact that some upgrades are available it doen't mean that the printer is bad. I think I'll test the stock TAZ 5 and in the meanwhile I'll try to find all the not printed parts to perform the upgrades (I'm still struggling to find some of them)
