Re: Taz 5 ABS cracking even with cat guard. Next steps?

The layers at the bottom aren't having any issues so time heating isn't really a factor. These lines are over 24 hours into my print. And I've had this issue printing at both lower end and higher ends of the ABS spectrum.

Taz 5 ABS cracking even with cat guard. Next steps?

I've been having issues with ABS cracking on large prints. I've built a cat guard that seems to be helping some but I'm still not getting the desired result. The picture attached shows the issue. I'm printing fairly slowly at 75% infill. Should I turn off my extruder fans and try again? This print h...

Re: Which is faster, the TAZ 6 or Mini?

I guess it would depend on the amount of parts and size. If you have a lot of stuff to print, you could print them all on the full sized taz simultaneously but you would have to do parts individually on the mini due to size limitations.

Re: Taz 6 Enclosure - Relocate LCD/Controls outside?

... Just as I receive all of the cat guard parts in the mail and am planning on upgrading my 5 (once ITW posts their kit pricing). Perhaps I can just cut a hole in one side and cut the extrusions so it can stick out the side. Or, since the kit needs wiring work anyway, maybe just do a longer run of ...

Possibly later this week, probably next week.
We want to nail down the correct options before we price it out.
Any hope for a print your own parts kit?

Re: TAZ 6 upgrade kits

I'd also be interested, but mostly for the individual parts. I'd be happy with just a bed plate and ninjaflex parts really. We have the ninjaflex bed corners for sale https://itworks3d.com/product/taz-6-ninjaflex-bed-corners/ We've printed, and will soon post the ninjaflex Z washers Bed plates are ...

Re: Installing Firmware

I wanted to update my TAZ 5 firmware with the corrected 85deg print bed temperature setting. Maybe I misunderstood the message in that thread that said "Firmware is here." Looking at it now, it may be just giving someone the URL to the firmware in general instead of announcing that the firmware has...

Re: TAZ 5 Stops Mid-Print

Then it's probably a communication problem like mine. I'd swap to a better SD card because they're not all created equal and check my wiring connections.

Re: TAZ 5 Stops Mid-Print

Shasselberg, I've had the exact same issue that you've had with USB printing. I first noticed it when using my octopi setup and then continued to notice it with connecting directly to my computer. Prints would start just fine and after a few hours, or even a few minutes, they would sometimes just fa...
