Re: Latest Firmware for TAZ5 - advanced development version

This may be related to the problem you linked though. Especially since the thermal stability of my extruder is also effected...

Re: Latest Firmware for TAZ5 - advanced development version

No I don't. I have a custom removable bed of my own design which is fully manual 3 point leveling. Not a fan of software bed leveling. I prefer to get it mechanically right and print oldschool I guess. The problems started when I reduced the values in adv.h to avoid thermal runaway. Perhaps I have a...

Re: Latest Firmware for TAZ5 - advanced development version

After I posted my print stopped at the exact same spot two print attempts in a row. Same x, y and z position. No error code shown. Nozzle just sitting there, still hot, bed still hot. No printing. Weird.

Re: Latest Firmware for TAZ5 - advanced development version

Fixed thermal runaway problem by increasing parameters very high but now I have this strange issue. Seems like the firmware controlling the heating of the extruder occasionally goes to sleep. Weird. Here's a video of the behavior. You'll only have to watch the first minute of the video, because it h...

Re: Latest Firmware for TAZ5 - advanced development version

You can wet sand PLA and get great results too. But I guess only on models with plain surfaces? I think I'm not patient enough for wet sanding :lol: Yes it's a lot of work. ABS is easier with the acetone, but in this model's case you would lose a lot of the fine detail (rough scaly skin of the crea...

Re: Latest Firmware for TAZ5 - advanced development version

I guess this is made from ABS and acetone vapor polished? Looks realy good, never thought this was a 0.2mm print. Some day I should give ABS a try, just because of the acetone option.. The original model poster was made in white ABS and acetone polished. Mine is actually in red PLA. But I could pri...

Re: Latest Firmware for TAZ5 - advanced development version

8-) However I have noticed if I stop a print midway from the LCD and then start another I get a thermal runaway error unless I shut the printer down. I guess stopping the print clears the target temperatures, starting a new one is setting it again and start heating from a still half-hot hot end? Th...

Re: Latest Firmware for TAZ5 - advanced development version

If you are using a programer, make sure that you use the firmware with bootloader. Use at your own risk. Vitor Henrique Stupid question: If I'm flashing through Cura's firmware update function, which do I need? I don't remember needing to care about this with other RAMPS, etc firmware flashes. Than...
