Re: Anyone using Repetier-host software?

I have not tried to use it on a Taz 5 yet. But I use the latest version all the time while I am working on Taz 2,3,4 and Mini Taz. But I use it more to test printer functions and just print prebuilt test models, with the occasional random model for myself. I do hope to have a Taz 5 soon to be using/...

Re: Shifting, offset layers on y-axis

I would also lift the drive cog up a little so it no longer rubs against the motor body.

Re: Y-Axis belt

You might try adjusting the height of the drive cog on the Y stepper to raise / lower the belts travel. There is some room for adjustment on this. Just make sure you keep one of the set screws and the flat of the shaft in alignment to prevent slippage. Or if it is still under warranty wait for suppo...

Re: No extrusion - etching on printer bed

The beds I have ran across with the PEI plastic 'etched' like that I have had to pull the old PEI and clean off the adhesive then reapplied a new sheet of PEI on the clean glass plate. The nozzle kind of puts the groove into the adhesive also while damaging the plastic sheet. So just replacing the P...

Re: Clogged Hexagon Hotend

Anyone have any tips on cleaning out the Hexagon Hotend? I've read the tip in the manual for removing the hotend but from other users saying that the threads are near impossible to realign, and with my nozzle being "welded" (not actually) to the hotend, i'm a little leery of taking it off. I attemp...

Re: Max stepper temperature

From the specs for the steppers:

they can run at 100 °C!

So they can and will run hot, but unless you are over-driving your printer they should be fine. Or you have it in a really hot enclosure, that will not allow sufficient cooling of the steppers.

Re: Aftermarket Parts (MINI)

The connectors on the Mini use a hard to source LCD panel(Do not know where the posting about this is located on the forum.), so no it will probably not work with that panel.

Re: Is there a solvent that dissolves Ninjaflex?

I asked a person I know that works for Fenner Drives and knows a lot about Nijaflex and he said nothing you would want to use. Only things are pretty nasty to use.

Re: Cura Caused Adhesion Issues

Eventually air bubbles could get trapped between the silicone heater and PEI... not sure if the Mini has glass sandwiched between... It doesn't look like it. Yes there is a glass plate between the heater and the PEI film. The few separated films I have seen were more white where it occurred, you ca...
