Replacment printed parts for the Taz 5

Hi, I searched the forums but the terms are too common and couldn't find any results. Where can I download stl files for printing Taz 5 parts? Specifically I just purchased a Flexi-Dually print head and noticed that the back most printed plate is cracked where one of the nut inserts are placed (in o...

Re: My extruder mount is rocking!

Sure, I ordered everything from Misumi, they are the supply house that Lulzbot uses as well. I have included the Misumi part #, qty, etc below. This is the part list to replace X & Y. I left my Z alone as it was tight. Linear rods are all 500mm long, 10mm in diameter. These part #s are exact part n...

Re: My extruder mount is rocking!

Gotcha, makes total sense. Thanks for the clarification on the R2's extruder, thats a damn small direct drive! Your video looks just like my TAZ did. Throw some better bearings on there and never look back! There is still some play in the tool head from the way the swappable head mounts, but that c...

Re: My extruder mount is rocking!

Sorry I didn't mean to give the impression that I didn't like the Taz. I do very much. Like the old phrase, if I didn't care I wouldn't say anything. I did get some help from the help desk and I spread and tightened the bearing holders, that removed a lot of the slop, but there's still about 1mm mov...

Re: Convert Flexi-Dualie to standard Dual Head?

Wow that's strange. I wish mine was like that. I don't like .5mm nozzles in general. Yes I just got mine less than a week ago. But I bought it through matterhackers, so I don't know how long they had it on their shelf. Rofl! Thats where I got mine too! Ordered it on Mar 4th. What the hell? So stran...

Re: My extruder mount is rocking!

I am not sure if it would be classified as an issue. More as a design decision to keep costs in line with their target, lower maintenance (IGUS is self lubricating), sound level (bearings can be louder), etc. Good hardened linear rods for X & Y plus bearings can run $125. I believe all versions of ...

Re: My extruder mount is rocking!

Did they source the wrong size x-axis rods? I think this is something that needs to be fixed. It could be a small part of why my prints, while very good, are not perfect. I think removing play in the print head can only help in any case.
