Re: Taz 5 bed to 135C?

I use Polymax PC-Max on my Taz 4/5 with the bed at 80-85 degrees and it sticks perfectly.

Per Polymax recommendations, I print on BuildTak (Flexplate, best add-on for any 3D Printer) with Glue Stick.

Re: Supplier for connector for making your own toolheads

Pololu.com has the connectors, pins, and receptacles, as well as wires with the pins/receptacles already on them.

They also ship internationally, and sell by the piece.

Re: Mini firmware editing on a Mac

If you can point me to the link you are using that gives the "Windows" Instructions, I should be able to tell you how to do it on a Mac. I don't use the Standard Installation locations since I put my Arduino on Dropbox so it can be shared amoungst all my computers, but... When you run Arduino for th...

Re: Mini firmware editing on a Mac

I use Arduino on my Mac, every day. What is the exact problem you are having? I didn't respond before because I don't have a Mini but a TAZ, and the mini doesn't use a Rambo, does it? When I Flash a New firmware, I don't follow Lulzbot's instructions because they are woefully out of date. To flash t...

Re: inova 1800, CHROMA STRAND

I use 240 for the 1st Layer, and 235 for other layers.

Cooling Fans off on layers 1-3, 30% layer 4, and 50% layer 5 and up.

Simplify 3D, but shouldn't matter.

Re: Updating TAZ 5 Firmware

My TAZ started doing that after 2 years of use.

Printing from SD Card.

I reformatted the Card and all is well.

Re: ABS print issue: Blobs/Zits on final print (pics)

Personally, I would redesign the box so it is a multiple of my extrusion width, so that there is either a good amount of infill, or it only uses perimeters for infill. Simplify 3D has known issues with thin walls (although if you design around the issues, they no longer become issues :o ). The gap f...

Re: ABS print issue: Blobs/Zits on final print (pics)

Set the extrusion width to 0.50 and you should be good to go.

Re: Substitute for ABS for electronic enclosures (heat)

Proto-Pasta High Temp PLA can withstand up to 140°C (285°F) after its been annealed. Comes in Silver and Ice. And Coffee but the Coffee is more difficult to work with. I print it at 215°C on an unheated Zebra Plate (PrintnZ) bed. I anneal at 180°F for 30 - 60 minutes. There can be a small amount of ...
