Re: Taz 5 low spot in bed from heater wires

Seems like an easy enough solution. I really need to invest in a dial indicator.

Re: Belkin WeMo Switch and TAZ5?

Lots of ways to do what you want and yours is reasonable. You can't really hurt these printers by pulling the plug, they are very robust. I'd ike to point out that the extruder is the stepper motor/filament "pusher" and the hotend is where the heater and thermistor are located. Although many people...

Re: RazzMaTAZZ - my KITTAZ Build

Quick update: I had to do some other things right after installing the Y axis upgrades, but eventually I finished up the upgrades this weekend, maybe a total of 6 hours. The Z axis was the easiest by far, since everything is separate. The X axis seemed the toughest to me, but I just had a hard time ...

Re: RazzMaTAZZ - my KITTAZ Build

Thanks, Yea, when I flipped the Y bed around to proper orientation, some of the noise went down and motion got WAY SMOOTH actually. And dont worry, I have these things PLENTY lubed. I accidentally spurt out way too much one of the bearings, and I am running the plate back in forth to sop up some of ...

Re: RazzMaTAZZ - my KITTAZ Build

Well, I am done with the Y axis. took me about an hour and a half to remove, install the bearings, the new rods, and the dampener all for the Y bed. My panavise jr was barely up to task of bending back the bearing holders to get the bearings out. It was easier to put the new steel bearings in than i...

Re: RazzMaTAZZ - my KITTAZ Build

I am starting my upgrade today. I am starting with the Y axis. question: Did you add dampers to the Z axis steppers as well? Seems like they might be a little more of a pain, but I am saving those for later (doing the Y now). Also, for now I am using the small screws that came with the dampeners to ...

Re: Simplify3D is a software improvement

It would also be interesting to do a market study of slicer software. Id like to see which is most popular, and market shares for these in question (along with makerware, and etc.).

Re: RazzMaTAZZ - my KITTAZ Build

Good point, I dont need another place on my printer that can pick up cat hair.

I will probably go with 3 in 1 at Lowe's.
