For the bleed - more retraction distance

Yes it's already reversed by the Taz 4 profile I am using. That doesn't explain the 2mm difference does it?

Re: Dual extruder firmware update issues Taz 5

Have you calibrated the dual extruder? The process with printing squares inside each other using each extruder? The process has you update the printer config so the two should line up. Yes that's the strange part. When I did the calibration I ended up with -.06 for X and -51.79 for Y. I set Slic3r ...

Re: Dual extruder firmware update issues Taz 5

Printing in two colors! yay! But there are still some odd issues. One that's really strange, if I measure the distance between my nozzles in Y I get 51.8 center to center with digital calipers. But when printing a recent file from simplify3d, I had to offset the second nozzle by 53mm in Y, and I pro...

Re: Bed Temp Change after uploading firmware on Taz5

How do you do the PID calibration?

Ps In simplify 3d, the Y axis is reversed from Slic3r. So the Gcode offsets you enter for tool 1 (the second extruder) have to have the same value for x, but for y, you need to put in the absolute (positive) value of the y value you entered in Slic3r

Re: Dual extruder firmware update issues Taz 5

Since changing firmware on my Taz 5 for dual extruders I am having trouble with the temperature sensor on my heated bed. If I set it to 105°C it stops heating at 103°C. Whatever I set the temp to it stops 2°shy and stays there.

How do I fix this?

Re: Dual extruder firmware update issues Taz 5

It says something along the lines of exception in thread 7 ..... java heap space. Tried to copy paste it but I can't do that either. Apparently I am an idiot.

Dual extruder firmware update issues Taz 5

Edit: issue resolved I am following the update procedures for the Taz 4 figure they are the same. I am stuck at the arduino part. I can't get the extracted firmware for the dual extruder to work. I don't get the tabs along the top of the arduino program after opening the firmware in arduino. What bo...

Re: TAZ 5 and 1.75mm Filament

Wow this is great news. I have a makerbot r2 and a ton of 1.75 in different colors. I thought when I got the Taz 5 I would need to replace all those colors in 3mm, but apparently I don't! Awesome find.
