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

I just remove the spring screw all together so I can get a good visual of the filament and hole it needs to go into. Its not worth fighting trying to hold the spring and insert the filament. I'll do an angle cut on my filament, that helps a bit too. Sometimes I'll even need to put a little bend in t...

Re: Cannot Adjust Z Offset After Installing Dual Extruder V3

I thought the v3 Dual Extruder didn't need to have it's Z offset set. This is in their literature on it in their online store. "The Dual Extruder v3 does not require nozzle leveling or offset calibration"

Re: Changing nozzle

I use a 7mm open end wrench and a 18 or 19mm wrench to hold the heater block that the nozzle threads into. The nozzle only has 2 flat sides so you have to use an open end wrench and not a box end as the box end won't fit. I heat up the extruder from 200 to 230 degrees Celsius, then TURN OFF THE PRIN...

Re: V3 dual purge sequence on E2 not purging material

Aha you have not answered our concerns and have only pointed out a large amount of retraction and extraction in the startup G-Code. Retraction and Purge are opposite functions. Yes the Startup G-Code retracts 15mm of filament, then waits to heat things up, heats up the nozzles and the bed and positi...

Re: bought a Used TAZ6 What to check / Adjust?

If he said he has never gotten the v3 dual head to print right he probably ain't lying! I can say the same thing. I bought my TaZ 6 on last years Black Friday special and also bought the new dual V3 print head. I never could get it to print correctly either. I thought it was the cheaper eSUN PVA fil...

Re: V3 dual purge sequence on E2 not purging matrial

I'm on FW 1.1.5.71 and it does the same thing. Extruding off the edge for the first nozzle seems to be the new norm, I don't print a skirt cause it's primed and ready from the off edge extrusion. Confirm for the 2nd nozzle, it "purges" but nothing comes out. I see the gear turning, stops then waits ...

Re: LulzBot TAZ Dual Extruder v3 Tool Head

When switching out filaments on the v3 dual extrusion head I found it easiest to heat up the head to near the current filament’s printing temperature, extrude 10mm, unscrew the screw all the way and remove it, and then pull out the filament (or you could click the “cold pull” button, that will set y...

Re: Dual V3 with flexible filaments (ie. Ninjaflex)

I have the new dual head v3 and it can print with the ninja flex filament. However, I’m not so sure it’s quite ready to mix together with different materials. Once I tried a print with pla and ninjaflex filament, I can’t remember why it failed. Might be cause the temperature was bouncing around or d...
