Re: TAZ 5 Autobed Level Derived From TAZ Mini

Hey all, just wanted to post this to see if folks are still interested in the topic. I bought some washers, did some wiring, downloaded the most recent Marlin from GitHub and touched it up for the TAZ, and voila, auto-leveling just like the Mini!

Re: 3D Printable TAZ Modifications

Hello nbmoretto,

Right you are, the extruder idler tensioner jig is a useful piece for anyone's printer! And a very quick print to boot. Find that STL model here:

Re: Calibration of Prints

If the materials are all just a little large, you may try playing with the extrusion multiplier in Cura. I have gone as low as 80%, but there is a point where you start seeing week top infill, etc.

Re: First print n-vent filament quality issue

Wow, beautiful print aside from those top layers. I would increase bottom/top layer thickness and/or increase infill density. Let us know how the next prints go!

Re: Errors in Cura status window

Checksum Errors are normal and harmless.
Unknown commands usually the same.
Active Extruder is just letting you know you are using your primary extruder (not a dually)

Re: Onodrim -- enlarged build volume TAZ-like machine

Nicely done with the bearing supports for the bed! I am super impressed you are moving that bed with a belt drive as well. Super exciting progress!

Re: Convert Flexi-Dualie to standard Dual Head?

Hi there, Certainly doable. Keep in mind the FlexyDually heads will both have .5mm nozzles, and the standard is .35mm. It is easiest to make them match (get a Budaschnozzle with a .5mm nozzle). If you do have the nozzles mismatched and your silcing program (like Cura) can't handle it, you can tell i...
