Re: Help with Bottom Warpage

I had similar problems doing prints like that in ABS, even with an enclosure. I gave up and switched to esun PETg. Haven't looked back. ABS i only use now for small parts now.

Re: Anti Z wobble Z nut

Yeah, when I do this for the other taz, I'll have to keep that in mind. The one thing I ran into is the new holder just kisses my left side fan holder/fan. So I'm printing a thinner flanged version to have a little gap. I did use a dental pick to try to clean out the grooves in the lower part. Thank...

Re: Anti Z wobble Z nut

I'm guessing it's sticky. When fully assembled, the steel pins through the little igus bearings were slightly sticky no matter what I did with the bearings. I got it mostly gone by wiggling the pins in the iges bearings pretty hard until they slid through nice. That would be in the Y direction. I al...

Re: Anti Z wobble Z nut

So I installed the new assemblies last night. The process was less difficult than I expected, and the print quality is significantly improved. One odd thing, is on the tube I used to test an after print, the rear-facing most 1/8 of the cylinder had zero showing of the banding The rest of the part is...

Re: Igus bearings vs ball bearings

Thanks. I think I'll stick with the plastic ones for now then.

Igus bearings vs ball bearings

Since I'm going to be building Piercet's anti-z devices and installing them on one of my Taz printers, would it make any sense to replace the dryline bearings with ball bearing equivalent? Or is there not a significant difference?

Re: TAZ 5: Z-Wobble Fix

Thanks Piercet. I've started to gather the parts for your z-axis anti-wobble. Once I get everything, I may have some questions on actual disassembly/reassembly.

Re: TAZ 5: Z-Wobble Fix

I know this is an old thread, but some of this makes sense. My non Lulzbot printer is a Makeit pro. Their Z is driven truly by threaded rods, not precision lead screws. How they run the z-axis is a little weird, but this discussion tells me why they did it. The threaded rod (looks like about 10-32) ...

Re: Z-wobble ninjaflex washer?

I have 2 taz 5, not a 6.

So I saw the post on Sebastian's thread that Lulzbot was testing a ninjaflex washer. Is that only on the 6?

Thanks

Z-wobble ninjaflex washer?

I've been following the anti-z wobble discussions, and I've found on my second taz, I've got more banding than my first one. Mostly on large parts, but we all know it's there. I noticed a mention that there is now a ninjaflex disc used, and I was wondering if that is enough to get rid of the wobble,...
