V2 toolhead fan question

When does the small blower fan on the v2 toolhead turn on? I think I'm having a heat creep issue and plan to diagnose it more in depth in the morning. Is it on any time the heater is on? For some reason that's what I'm thinking. Thanks, Greg.

Re: Taz 4 z axis issue

It moves up and down fine, no binding as I wheeled it down to the bed by hand. It moves evenly, never getting out of level. When I move it by the LCD readout knob it simply will not go below 0.0 it just stops there. When I try and home z, no matter if it is through pronterface or by the LCD readout ...

Taz 4 z axis issue

I have a taz 4 and suddenly the z axis does not act right. It moves UP ok, but when it comes down it gets to a point where it stops and the steppers seem to hum. While this is happening I can turn the leadscrews by hand and if I manually trip the Z limit switch it stops. The perculiar thing is that ...

Re: TAZ5 Flexystruder Fail

Where to get a Rambo repaired?

I have a Rambo that failed a while back, it seems to be a bootloader issue. Is there anywhere I can send it to that can repair it if I can't get it going on my own? Thanks, Greg.

Re: Linear bushing, upgrade to linear bearing ?

I installed bearings and hardened rods on my Taz4 and love it. To me the noise isn't much and the accuracy gain is significant.
