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

One other thing I did different, which in retrospect I'm not sure if there is any advantage except not needing epoxy, is I used 3/4 inch MDF for the base part, and used threaded inserts and brass machine screws for the base brackets rather than the epoxied hardware and wingnuts. We'll see how they h...

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

Here you go. I am still waiting on the handle inserts, the acrylic tube, the friction hinges and the window is being fabbed locally. All the hotbox parts are in abs. I had to print the top tube guide twice as it lifted once. I've been running large brims on the flat parts to help with the lifting. I...

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

I'd like to thank you for all the work. I'm actually making a box for my Taz 5 based on your wonderful instructions. There are some things I've modified, and for now I'm going to leave the taz display where it's mounted on the printer. I am working my own electronics into the box, and next week I wi...

Re: CuRA 14.09 "Not Responding"

Just had this happen where Cura and the pronterface gui are "not responding" First time it's happened. Print seems to be merrily running along.

Re: Clicking sounds on taz 5 printhead area

I tried the bolt, and couldn't tighten it anymore. I do notice as I move the herringbone gears that they turn smoother in some spots. Some prints make the noise, some don't. Seems like it's always after a fast retract, forward movement.

Thanks for the tips though.

Clicking sounds on taz 5 printhead area

I've recently picked up a taz 5. After a lot of reading, and a couple calls to tech, I'm now getting pretty good prints with PLA. Thanks to everyone for all of the posted advice.... Now, something new happened tonight while printing. I was running .1mm fine setting using mattercontrol touch. About e...
