Re: Taz 5 low print quality

Hello tyler.curnow, in order to help you figure out what may be going on here and resolve it I would like to ask you what type, manufacturer, and diameter of filament you are using? There could be a couple things going on here depending on what filament you are using. Any additional information you ...

Re: Materials Settings for PolyLite ABS

You should be safe to use any of the pre-built ABS material profiles for your ABS. This includes the profiles titled "ABS (IC3D)" or "ABS (Chroma Strand)". Keep in mind that you may need to make a few adjustments to the print settings to tune it in precisely, but the ABS profiles in Cura should be e...

Re: Nelon X filament

When printing with Nylon X or other carbon fiber based abrasive filaments, it is important to use a hardened steel nozzle to avoid damaging your nozzle. The standard nozzle on the Mini 2's extruder is not hardened steel and so if you use Nylon X you will likely damage the nozzle. However if you want...

Re: Problems with the TAZ6

If you are working with a temperature sensitive filament like PLA then you could be running into some heat creep if your lab is particularly warm. Heat creep is when the filament gets warm past the hot end and becomes malleable and then the hobbed bolt chews through it like butter and can lead to ex...

Re: Cura wants to print extra layer?

Unfortunately I am unable to see the "Cura solid view.JPG" or "Cura Layer view top layer.JPG" files but it does sound like this could be an error in the model itself that is causing it to want to print that extra layer. To test that, you could make sure that you are using one of the default Cura mat...

Re: Groaning Rails...

Could you give a bit more detail in regards to the groaning noise you are hearing? Is it the X, Y, or Z axis rods that are making a groaning noise?

Re: Yet more questions, initial layer height?

The initial layer height in Cura is set to be thicker than the rest of the layers, this is to help with bed adhesion. If the first layer is thicker than the rest in your print it is nothing to be concerned about. However if you wanted to adjust the first layer to be as thick as the rest, you could d...

Re: Modular Print Bed on Mini 1.4?

The modular bed's metal plate heat pad helps disperse heat more evenly throughout the build plate which allows the entire build volume to be utilized to its full potential. You can also flip the glass surface to print on the bare glass for filaments that do better on glass like flexibles. If you are...
