Re: Today's News

I'm sorry to hear today that Lulzbot is having to scale back operations! Lulbot's technical assistance is second to none. They are open 7 days / week and always willing to help solve a problem. It's ironic that 3d printing was supposed to help bring manufacturing back to America one day, but now the...

Re: Slots & Striations On Taz 6 Parts

Is there some reason you don't use PETG? I'm asking because I have used it as a replacement for ABS, PRUSA now prints all their printer parts with PETG and it doesn't stink like ABS; it's almost odorless.

Re: Taz 6 Bed leveling fail.

When it fails can you send M119 to the printer and verify the status of the endstops?

Improved Auto Bed Leveling TAZ 6 - Part 1

FSR's are being used for auto bed leveling routines on the round beds of Delta printers in groups of 3 because 3 points defines a plane. I found a way to set up FSR's for a very accurate bed leveling routine on the rectangular print bed of the TAZ 6, utilizing 4 FSR's one at each corner of the print...

Re: Torture Test - Is Your Printer and Slicer Calibrated Properly

I used the IT-Works 1.75 with my TAZ 4/TAZ 6 hybrid when I printed the Torture Test. I like the 1.75 alot.

I originally bought the 1.75 because I wanted something I could use with the new Mosaic Palette 2 Pro that I bought which currently only works with 1.75:

Re: Torture Test - Is Your Printer and Slicer Calibrated Properly

One of the newer versions, Slic3r PE v1.41.1, does have linear advance profiles , but I don't know how good they work: IMG_20181218_181646.jpg I found that IT-Works version of Lulzbot's Aerostruder called the AeroPro works so well it doesn't need Marlin's linear advance option at my normal external ...

Re: Torture Test - Is Your Printer and Slicer Calibrated Properly

I was also curious about the regular version, but I never got a chance to try it out. One thing that gave me a level of confidence in sticking with the PE version is that the PE version is updated much more frequently than the regular version and it's giving me excellent results. If you get a chance...
