Re: Lulzbot Mini, PLA first layer wavy, not flat

Its all about that Z-offset. Z offset is the distance between "0" and your printing surface. Lulzbot finds your 0 at the top of the washers. Anything below that will be a negative value ; below zero. If you have a micrometer measure the thickness of the washer, the bottom of your washer will be the ...

Re: Taz 6 leveling issue

Try cleaning your nozzle and washers with rubbing alcohol. Be sure to have it powered off when cleaning the nozzle else you’ll blow an internal micro fuse.

Re: Lay Flat Command

Your E-steps should be in your documentation that was written down when they did testing. They might also be in your "Machine Settings" in Settings -> Printers -> Machine Settings. There should also be a sticker on the back of the print head assembly that tells you what your E-steps are. You can als...

Re: Lay Flat Command

Its in the Rotate screen. Go down 2 more pictures Rotate.PNG Also, the latest version is 3.2.21 Expect a firmware upgrade Be sure to write down your E-steps and Z-offset, those values will get wiped out with the firmware upgrade. I'm not sure what the Quick Print screen was so I can't help you there

Re: Structural Layer Weakness Halfway Through

Problem Resolved! First I want to say Thank You two for your troubleshooting efforts! Your comments made me look at my model closer and revealed the error. It turns out part A was not attached to part B like I thought it was. There turned out to be a .17mm gap between the two even though I had a con...

Re: Dual Extruder V3 - why angle the filament channel?

I have experienced the heat creep problem very much with the DualExtrusion v3 printhead. I am surprised to read you're still experiencing the problem with a 9.4 cfm fan. I as much as bought the fan I mentioned above, bought the longer screws to mount it and then stopped short of replacing it because...

Structural Layer Weakness Halfway Through

I have a model that's 20 layers tall and halfway through it the support structure changes from whatever infill pattern (Grid for example) to horizontal lines from layer 10 to the end of the last layer 20. I'm using Cura 3.2.21 with the PLA(Village Plastics) Material with the Standard Profile of .25m...

Re: TAZ Dual V3 jams

Perhaps that tension screw on the hobbled bolt is getting in the way a bit? When I load my filament I remove that screw and push the filament down and in as far as I can, I do get that tactile feel of hitting the end after a few inches, keep pushing and overcome that resistance. I can easily push fi...

Re: TAZ 6 External Cooling Fan(s)

Only you will be able to tell if that’s a viable solution or not. Seems like a lot of work than simply replacing the middle cooling fan with one that draws in more air. I agree the stock fan is under powered to cool PLA efficiently. I’ve tried the desktop fan trick with no better results then it not...

Re: Taz 6 skipping

Is it skipping or is it pausing? You printing via USB? Seems this new version of software is much more resource intensive. Try printing the file to the SD card and try printing from the SD card, it should go smoother.
