Re: Hex Hot end, few quick questions...

So I tried all the by the book methods to get it unclogged but nothing worked. I took it off the machine, took the whole hot end apart, removed heater, thermistor, and nozzle, everything until I just had the bare block with the plastic jammed in the main throat. My nozzle was actually fine, but it w...

Re: Hex Hot end, few quick questions...

Ok, so I didn't even make it through 2 hours of printing without this hotend %$@#! up. And I just replaced my budda snozzle because it just stuffed up. Now the hex end is jammed and I can't figure out how to fix it. The filament is jammed in the tube with the brass lining, not the nozzle. I removed ...

Re: Hex Hot end, few quick questions...

ok thanks, great info..I sorta have to figure out what the nozzle size is though, obviously it's somewhat important. It was sent to me as a replacement by lulzbot. It has a big 3 on it. Maybe lulzbot admin can chime in here. I'm doing a print with it set to .3mm so I'll see how that turns out. thank...

Hi guys, So just got around to installing my hex hotend on my taz 4. Installation and wiring went ok. I installed the taz5 firmware from the link at the end of the installation guide. I've noticed that the little turbo fan stays on all the time...is that normal? Also, what is the size of the stock n...

Re: HOT BOX 3DP ENCLOSURE SYSTEM (For Taz)

Hey Catz, Can you share an image of the slider? Awesome to hear about the long ABS prints turning out ok. For PLA, mind you I done havn't too much of it, I don't heat the bed, or I start off at about 50 degree's then turn it off, or...errr I can't remember if I put down painters tape and glue though...

Re: HOT BOX 3DP ENCLOSURE SYSTEM (For Taz)

Alright, so the website is up and running, if you're interested in a kit, go there and you can pre-order one, either pay in advanced or pay upon MOQ reached.. We might actually be ordering a few to keep in inventory, regardless of the MOQ so keep checking back. If you have a cool mod for the box, le...

Re: HOT BOX 3DP ENCLOSURE SYSTEM (For Taz)

Yep, that's what I noticed also. Anson got everything working ok. Can anyone else chime in? Again, just be aware of which wire goes where at the end of the line and everything should be ok. I tested the PSU and the fans before I shipped them out so all should be good. Interesting to see how the lase...

Re: HOT BOX 3DP ENCLOSURE SYSTEM (For Taz)

NB, In the video above, the fans are PC fans so they're setup with three wires, one being for signal, the yellow, that would normally go into the mobo I'm assuming for speed control. We don't need that one, just need the black and red. If you plug all the connectors in the right way it should all li...
