Re: (Heated) enclosure for taz 6?

Interesting, for me on amazon, it's $4 a roll more for the PETg (esun to esun) for me that is made up in the lack of failed prints :) but to each their own. I'm sure the hotbox (which I have on one for one of my taz 5's) can be adapted for the taz 6.

Re: (Heated) enclosure for taz 6?

You might want to try using petg for larger parts. I use esun petg on my taz, and now only run abs on smaller parts as petg can be a little gummy on them.

Taz 5 extruder suddenly not getting all the way to temp

I am running a print tonight with amphora 1800. Hot end is set to 235, but after initial heat-up, it dropped to 215, and seems to be staying there. The print seems to be coming along just fine, but the temp is stuck. I'll try manually setting the temp after the print is done, and failing that put on...

Re: How many hours do you have on your lulzbot taz X

My first taz 5 has around 2500 hrs. PEI has been replaced twice due to bubbles (under warranty) Printhead has been replaced once, and rebuilt by me a few times for plastic parts that broke. Power supply replaced once to new version. Other than that, it's just material. My second taz 5 was a refurb, ...

Re: Taz 5 vs Makergear M2e

The dual cooling fans is a very easy fix. There are a number of left-side fan ducts. This does make a difference. For me, the auto-leveling isn't an issue as I only re-level my bed when I need to change heads, and it's not that hard. The beefier rails, flex washer, and a couple other items are maybe...

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

Not sure where is local, but I used OCIP here in Anaheim. They can cut and form anything out of plexi.

Re: Odd part shrinkage

Interesting thought. Usually simplify underfills thin walls. But could be it.

Re: Odd part shrinkage

Using simplify 3D. When I print in Ngen, comes out perfect. Not the same gcode of course because my settings are different for ngen and abs, but it's the same source file. When I raise it off the bed by 12mm, it printed fine. I'll see if I can see something in the gcode. Oh and in the preview mode o...

Re: Odd part shrinkage

By the way, Taz 5 in an enclosure. 238 hot end, 100 bed temp. did this on both of my taz 5's. And the bottom picture should be a straight wall.

Odd part shrinkage

I had a part order this week from 3D hubs. Not the way I'd design the parts, but I didn't think it would be much trouble. However, I get severe warp at the point that the inner wall and the support end meets. I ended up raising the entire part off the build platform by 12mm, and it printed mostly OK...
