Re: Slicer preference's

I use Simplify3D on my 3 printers, and love it for almost everything. There is an issue with thin wall fill as was mentioned, but I have found that for just about everything else, and especially the custom support function, it has been the best for my needs.

Re: Taz 5 firmware question

Thanks, I had also seen a 2016 link somewhere, but I've never seen the 1.0.0.1 version before. But it has a lot more options than my current taz has. Is it a more generic type? It's what cura said was the "default firmware"

squaretrade warranty on used Taz

I'm considering picking up a second taz 5 that is one month old in a nearby area for $1500 via ebay. Ebay offers an extended warranty (2years) through squaretrade for $350. I was wondering if anyone has every used those warranties as I can't image they would know how to fix a printer.

2) Filtered enclosure for all models of your printers.

Just a note, Matterhackers will be carrying the BCN3D Sigma. The prints off that thing for two colors are amazing!

Re: Ngen prints awesome!

I will say that my bowden equipped Makeit pro has a little stringyness, but I've found that for a few different filaments on that printer. The Taz has a few hairs more than strings, but generally nothing that can't be just wiped off with a finger. The .35 tip may be the difference, not sure.
