Re: TAZ 5 with unusual problem. Need help

when you took it apart to replace the thermistor, any chance you inadvertently reversed the fan? the fan bracket should be towards the heat sink.

Re: TAZ 5 "Z" scaling issue

Go into your console and type M501 . That should return a bunch of lines of text in the console. Look for and find the one that looks like "echo: M92 X__ Y__ Z___ E__." . For a Taz 5 they should be X100.50 Y100.50 Z1600.00 and then something different for E. If those numbers are correct its not firm...

Re: TAZ 5 "Y" scaling issue

If you applied a new firmware and that didn't fix the issue, I'd suspect your wiring harness or possibly the motor controller chip. If the Y axis motor has one of the 2 motor coils unpowered, it may still be able to move, just not as well as it normally would. If you are printing slow enough it may ...

Re: Taz 5 and upgrades from Aliexpress?

Most upper end printers print well out of the box. Upgrading them is useful to reach exceptional levels of quality, but not necessary. It's kind of like adding performance kits to a sports car. It's still a fast car if you don't.

Re: Taz 2 evolved to 4

Can you tell if my machine is a TAZ 2 or 3? No, it's a taz clone of some sort. Its mostly 3 spec from the printed parts, But it has a printed case, not a metal case. I suspect its a home built one that was never a factory taz to begin with. If its got a 12v bed, nozzle and power supply its essentia...

Re: Torture Test - Is Your Printer and Slicer Calibrated Properly

The slic3r PE version has moved light years beyond where the older slic3r was. The only thing the offshoot slic3r has that PE doesn't yet was the software linear advance feature, which never really worked.
