Re: TAZ 6 head w/ dual cooling fans

You might be able to modify your start gcode to move the head to the right before you home the Z and then move it back before starting the actual print, but it wouldn't be a straight upgrade without some tinkering. Really, the wiring is easy as long as you can get the parts printed. If you follow th...

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.

Re: TAZ 6 head w/ dual cooling fans

I am currently using one on my taz 5 and the left fan assembly collides with the z screw when homing so I fully expect this to break at some point. I wouldn't expect them to offer this as a recommended upgrade for the 5 because of that.

Re: Taz 5 not maintaining hot end temperature

Thanks. My guess is thermistor because I don't think that there's any way it could cool off 20+ degrees in less than a second. Bad readings. I'll look at soldering on a new one.

Taz 5 not maintaining hot end temperature

I've had an issue with my Taz 5 over the past week where it has not maintained a steady print temperature. This seems to be an issue no matter the model that I'm printing or the material (tried ABS and PLA). The temperature is swinging wildly (20 degrees in either direction) within a couple seconds....
