Re: Instructions for Dual extruder into Taz 5?

I see now that they are developing a dual extruder with the all metal version. Should have waited for that.

Re: Instructions for Dual extruder into Taz 5?

Ok so I follow the firmware update instructions for the taz 4 and do the arduino updates as well?

edit never mind I see you are saying the controller is the same in the 4 and the 5.

Instructions for Dual extruder into Taz 5?

I guess they are similar to Taz 4, except I don't see a dual extruder firmware available for Taz 5 anywhere. Also there are no arduino files located in the Taz 5 sub. I am afraid to do any updating until I am sure those are the correct files. Also are there fans available that mount on the dual extr...

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: 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. ...

Re: Replacment printed parts for the Taz 5

What settings should I use for the stock Taz 5 printed parts (used to make the printer itself)? Mostly curious about strength settings like shells and infill percentage.

Also do the STL files need to be scaled up a little to account for ABS shrinkage or is that already accounted for?

Re: Replacment printed parts for the Taz 5

Thanks again the part I needed was actually located under the standard dual extruder. I guess the only difference in the printed parts between the flexy and the standard dual is the part the flexy section mounts to. My part was the back plate which is identical to both and only located with the stan...
