Re: Bed Temp Change after uploading firmware on Taz5

I haven't even tightened that screw :) Its very loose as I hadn't needed to use it for rigid filament. The problem is the PTFE tube does this: | ( - hole for the bolt | when you put the hard filament through. The amount of the tube that is left there after the drilling is small and it stretches/thi...

Re: Bed Temp Change after uploading firmware on Taz5

Well I was told by a person that uses a lot of nijaflex that the less flexible filaments will damage it pretty fast. And the checks I did last year, it was crushing/deforming the walls of the tubing where the screw is so that it had feed/buckling issues. I have not since ran ANYTHING but flexible fi...

If you have not got more PTFE tubing to replace the length in the flexistruder when it wears out, I would recommend it soon.

Re: Dual extruder firmware update issues Taz 5

You need to check the box in Simply3D to reverse the Y table.(Tools, Options, Machine)

For the bleed - more retraction distance

Re: Firmware/Print head questions

Just remember you may need to recalibrate between firmware changes or make the calibration settings a part of the code settings you reflash with.

Re: Filament doesn't stay on bed, gets caught up in later la

Well if you are using the Lulzbot version. you should be using the preconfigured Mini-Tax settings selected from when you selected the printer type you have. So if you click on machine button at top of Cura you should show Lulzbot Mini as the only machine listed at the top. You can not see the gcode...

Re: Filament doesn't stay on bed, gets caught up in later la

I sounds like your bed needs cleaned. - filament not sticking. Not doing the pre-print routine - that is where bed leveling and nozzle cleaning is done (so you need to do this.) It sounds like the needed start gcode is not getting done. You do not state what software or anything you are using. Are y...

Re: Replacment printed parts for the Taz 5

Thanks yeah I have the.35 and I don't use slic3r either. I use simplify 3d. But in looking at the gcodes I can mimick what they did for the most part. Although I can't see in the gcode where the infill percentage is. I will just go with 60% that should be very solid. I think most of them are 75% bu...

Re: Roctopuses rock, but sponges sock

Yes, that is the line/s printed around the part, you make it become an enclosure that helps protect your printed part. It does not always work, but you might try and see if it does.
