Re: Latest Firmware for TAZ5 - advanced development version

Forgot to come back and say I have gotten rid of the gaps I was originally getting in fine detail by turning on firmware retraction and getting my esteps properly tuned. This firmware is great. Nice job Sebastian. My Taz is finally printing things correctly.

Re: Latest Firmware for TAZ5 - advanced development version

Thanks for the info. I am getting some gaps in smaller areas where I have to slow the print down. Fine detail is not getting filled. e.g. I am printing a trex skull and some of the smaller teeth are essentially porous. This is similar to what I have seen when using other pressure control solutions i...

Re: Latest Firmware for TAZ5 - advanced development version

The FW shouldn't affect the esteps, it was part of the development to be 100% shure that the advance feature isn't changing the absolute amount of filament laid down. You may have the feeling that it is changing the esteps, because depending on the way you calibrated the esteps before you may have ...

Re: Latest Firmware for TAZ5 - advanced development version

Well this is really excellent. My prints have improved quite a bit with this firmware. One thing I had to do was go through e-steps calibration again. It was under extruding quite a bit from the esteps that was calculated using the stock Taz 5 firmware. I had to increase my esteps from 832 to 849. N...

Re: Latest Firmware for TAZ5 - advanced development version

Very interesting! I've always wondered why my Taz struggles with certain shapes while my R2 handles them perfectly. It never occurred to me that the problem lies in the firmware.

I use mostly ABS, will the fact that this is tweaked for PLA hurt my results with this firmware?

Re: Latest marlin firmware for TAZ 5

The version on github.com is a stock marlin config. You can take you current taz config files as a reference and edit the new ones with your values. Or you wait until mid next week. I got advance to stabile also in RC6 and will provide a configured download for all the users here who wants more ;) ...

Re: Latest marlin firmware for TAZ 5

Your last link in the post before this one is not setup for a Taz 5. Do we just overwrite the configuration.h and the configuration_adv.h with your Taz 5 firmware from your previous version? Are there any other reqiured files? Or is this one not ready for Taz 5 use? Sorry I only have enough knowledg...

Re: What would cause zits on curved walls only?

I finally got around to finishing my own E3Dv6 modification, but with a twist. I decided to use a stock Taz heater core and Thermistor with it to help determine "is it something with the hexagon barrel" or "is it something with the hexagon electrics". With preliminary testing I can now safely say t...

Re: X-axis 12mm upgrade for Taz 5. No more Sag!

Sorry I don't have that info. I just swapped them without measuring anything.

I will absolutely tell you there is no reason on earth why you would ever even consider going back to 10mm after doing this upgrade.
