Re: PLA choice for hot tubs?

I agree with piercet and I would just like to add a few more. Alloy910 and 680 are nylons that, by definition, are quite inert to chemicals and might do the trick for you. Plus, they can withstand some high temps. I've tried the 910 and I love it. Use "Wolfbite Mega" from Airwolf3D to help with adhe...

Re: Auto bed probing and compensation with G29 Development

Confirmed: if you dont put the "G1 Z0" in the start scripts of S3D, but place it within the Z_PROBE_END_SCRIPT variable within Marlin, it starts at the correct setting. Just be sure your z offset setting within marlin are correct so you dont have a crash. I have to admit that I haven't thought abou...

Re: Auto bed probing and compensation with G29 Development

Define probe as z end stop Remove x0 y0 reference in g28 command just use "g28" Ensure eeprom settings and chitchat are enabled This should activate probe during g28 command G29 command activates probe for bed leveling Eeprom settings and chitchat enable the printer to recall the probe measurements...

Re: TAZ5 heatbed thermal view

That's very interesting to know. Thanks for confirming my findings Duncan. If others find the chance to do the same and this proves to be the norm rather than the exception, then I really think that Lulzbot should probably start looking for a metal heated bed instead of the glass.

Re: Rigid filament for very thin parts

I'm probably way off the direction this topic has come to, but, trying to answer to the original subject let me say this: I have worked with BluPrint from Taulman3D and I must say that is quite stiff and brittle, much like PLA, very clear and most importantly comes with a Tg of 110C. So, it'll be sa...

Re: TAZ5 heatbed thermal view

I used a camera I borrowed from my job and it was recently calibrated. I understand that not every bed is the same even within the same product line. But if you take a closer look at my thermals, you'll see that at 60C, the temperature sd3d.com also used, the gradient is not that bad. All difference...

TAZ5 heatbed thermal view

Recently, I got my hands on a thermal camera from FLIR, model T420, and I thought about checking the uniformity of the heat on the bed. So I heat up the bed in three, most common for me, temps, waited for the system to stabilize and took the following three thermal pictures: Set Temp 60C Set60C.jpg ...

Re: Best way to clean glue stick from TAZ 5 PEI bed?

Sorry for dropping in when the issue is solved, but I am just curious: The glue stick is used to improve adhesion or to ease the removal? I've been printing a lot with PETG and always had the best adhesion, similar to ABS, straight on the PEI sheet. And in my case, whenever I used glue stick for oth...

Re: Auto bed probing and compensation with G29 Development

Hi, I chose to post in here my problem, instead of creating a new post, even if it is old, because I feel somebody in here will know what am I doing wrong. I have a TAZ5 and I have flashed the new 2015Q3 firmware with the support for the G29 and servos. I have installed a sub miniature endstop switc...

Re: Adding an Openbuilds Openrail x axis to a Lulzbot Taz 4/5

That turned out great! Nice job. Did you have to make many firmware changes to get the volcano hotend working with the TAZ? I'm thinking I am going to need one of those to continue my speed trials. Thanks! I didn't do any change. Even the thermistor type is the same. Actually, I'm doing only one th...
