Re: Adding an Openbuilds Openrail Y axis to a Taz 3/4/5

Ended up getting the shorter heat set inserts. Needed them for the Z wobble upgrade anyways. Got all the parts ordered, and excited to see the results with this upgrade!

Re: Adding an Openbuilds Openrail Y axis to a Taz 3/4/5

About to finally move on this upgrade and just want to clarify a few things: The BOM says 12 T-nuts, but in the pics it seems like there's more than that. Can someone confirm the total amount? I have some M5 11.1mm heat inserts. Will those work, or do I need the 6.75mm? I've never used a tap before....

Re: HOT BOX 3DP ENCLOSURE SYSTEM (For Taz)

So I used a free app from my phone to test how loud the printer is, so take this with a grain of salt. With the fans on, I was getting roughly 45db. Turning the fans off dropped that 1 or 2 db but not much. The sound is very much unnoticeable when printing. Hope this helps.

Truthfully I probably won't be able to get to it for a couple of days, but I'll give it a shot when I can

Re: HOT BOX 3DP ENCLOSURE SYSTEM (For Taz)

Hey and thanks for sharing this design I have some sort of similar questions in regards to this for my TAZ 5. Would making the hot box wider to mount the filament spool inside be a bad idea? I mean in terms of filaments like PLA warping and distorting due to the high temperatures inside. Would thia...

Re: HOT BOX 3DP ENCLOSURE SYSTEM (For Taz)

Can you just take the filament spool off the holder and store it inside when not in use? I've never done it before, but I imagine fitting 1 or 2 rolls in there when it's not in use would be fine. I store my filament in this tote when I'm not using mine and it'd work great for you as well. http://ww...

Re: HOT BOX 3DP ENCLOSURE SYSTEM (For Taz)

Hey thanks for getting back to me! This is going to be perfect, as my garage is currently not directly heated and I'm concerned with warping/dust. Quick questions: - Was there any reason you placed the upright supports on the outside of the model, instead of inside? - DUST - With this design, do yo...

Re: Adding an Openbuilds Openrail Y axis to a Taz 3/4/5

I'm pieces the parts together and holding off on upgrading my Y till I'm happy with what I want to order. I found these http://www.makerfarm.com/index.php/solid-v-wheel.html that have the same bearings, but uses delrin instead of the OpenBuilds polycarbonate. It's definitely appealing since they are...
