Re: Taz 6 Auto Level Failure - Print Bed Too Low

Did it come with a Dual Printhead? Or was there one ever installed and used by that printer? Check if there's a Z-axis switch extension mechanism installed. For a visual reference see this reference step 11: https://ohai.lulzbot.com/project/lulzbot-taz-dual-extruder-tool-head-v3-install/ With that i...

If that don't work you can try this Gcode:

Then auto home with G28

Re: HS Tool Head 0.8 Made a expensive mistake

It’s just as easy to get out as the standard nozzle just more threads. Use the same method, heat it up, shut the printer off, hold the heater block from twisting with a wrench or pliers, unscrew nozzle. Yes mine is working good, in fact, I think I like the volcanoes are better because of the longer ...

Re: HS Tool Head 0.8 Made a expensive mistake

I’m not sure what you mean that you can’t buy a .4 volcano nozzle? I just bought some on amazon for my dually v3. eBay sells them too. What you can’t find is, is a .5 volcano nozzle unless you by it directly from E3D in the UK.

Re: Taz Pro Vs Raise3d Pro 2 vs Ultimaker E /S5

Markforged 3D printers may be a good candidate too.

Re: Lulzbot Taz 6: Different Nozzles

The ruby nozzle won’t work on the TAZ 6 because the auto leveling feature is sensed through the nozzle via capacitance I think. Never put anything conductive on the nozzle (i.e. wire brush, water, wrench) on the nozzle while the printer is on else you’ll probably blow the micro fuse and have to deal...

Re: [Dual Extruder v3] Disassembly of extruders from heat break

At this point you could probably separate the heat break from the heatsink by unscrewing those very tiny allen head screws, use the smallest Allen wrench from the kit that came with your Taz 6. Once separated you can use a heat gun or flame to melt off the plastic.

Re: Collapsing Katana Test Print Issues

Well I have to admit, that sword looks pretty cool! It looks to like you’re over extruding or over heating a little bit. I have a few suggestions. Maybe dial down your first layer height to the same height as the rest of the print. Change the flow rate to 90% because plastic expands, I get better di...

Re: [Dual Extruder v3] Filament Stops Feeding, Ruins Print, Can't get out Easily

Heat creep is horrendous on the dual v3 and PLA. Recently for the first time I’ve had to take apart the head to get the filament out. But first try this if you can still grab onto the filament from the top where it feeds. Heat up the Extruder to about 180, put a card over the front fan that’s attach...

Re: Newbie needs help

What size is you nozzle? Is it the standard .5 mm or something larger? It still looks to me like a lot of filament is still coming out, as if you're using a large nozzle diameter or a worn out nozzle. Especially if the nozzle is brass, brass is one of the softest metals used for nozzles. You said yo...
