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: Converting old TAZ 4 extruder to flexystruder

Yeah I converted a AO-100 extruder into a flexy about 6 months ago for this nice guy I know that works for Fenner drives and did some testing on this filament they were trying out! :D Had to use what is available at the time, and did not have access to a unused Taz or Mini! :cry: Just wish I could g...

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.

Re: Replacment printed parts for the Taz 5

I wanted to mention that you will need to make sure you check your nozzle size, as many of the parts that have the pre-existing gcode file are made to use the 0.5 MM nozzle. They tend to use the larger nozzle size to print them faster, but they are tweaked to run fast and give a good print result. S...

Re: Roctopuses rock, but sponges sock

You can try and set the skirt to print as high as your part to block the layer to layer temp changes that tend to cause lifting on the corners by cool air. It is something like skirt line counts 999 in Cura expert settings.

Re: Confusing slicer issues

Loading both the STL files there into Netfab shows they have errors in the models, so they will not slice properly.

Re: Simplify3D profiles for the Lulzbot Mini?

I noticed you did not use/have the Simplfy3d variables in the Scripts tab starting gcode. [bed#_temperature] or [extruder#_temperature], you look to have the Cura ones in there. {print_temperature} and {print_bed_temperature} ;M190 S{print_bed_temperature} ;Uncomment to add your own bed temperature ...

Re: Bed Temp Change after uploading firmware on Taz5

Any reason a standard 100k resistor can't be used in the same way? Cheap and I got boxes of 1/8th watt resistors laying around. If the software isn't smart enough to realize its unplugged, I can't imagine its smart enough to tell that its exactly 100k and not changing :) It is more of having someth...

Re: Simplify3D profiles for the Lulzbot Mini?

I will have to check the factory file out tomorrow when I work on some Mini's. Maybe I can refine my setup that I use now. :ugeek:
