Re: TAZ 5 Dual Extruder V3 Questions

The v3 dual extruder nozzles are longer, a.k.a “volcano” type. Be sure you get those kind for this tool head. No need to replace the 2nd nozzle if it’s not needed. It’s not worth taking the chance of breaking the head by replacing it with an un needed nozzle. I broke my original head by trying to fi...

Re: New Tool Heads

There certainly isn't any buzz about these new tool heads like there was this time last year for the new tool heads of their time, the Dual Extruder V3 and the Aerostruder. I'll reserve my opinion as to why that is. I do not understand why you say the dual extruder v3 does not support flex and semi ...

Re: Dimensional accuracy is off

Flow. Reduce your flow rate(percentage). Plastic expands. I have mine set to 90% for PLA. Every plastic will be different, you’ll have to experiment. I printed a 10cm x 10cm cube and then measured the walls thickness with a micrometer. For more info Checkout these two articles: https://filament2prin...

Re: Lulzbot Taz 6, 3D iphone case with face

If you are going to do a lot of detail work mixed with "regular" work, you might consider a second tool head. I did and can switch back and forth in just a few minutes (plus cooling and heating time) So you have two different tool heads with different size nozzles? Then perhaps you execute the “Pau...

Re: Software used to make Lulzbot printer parts

I started with freecad but then the hierarchy would lose its values sometimes and I would have to go through and toggle the values up or down and back to the original value. That was about 3 or 4 years ago, hopefully that's been fixed by now. Fusion 360 is very popular. Solidworks is a top-of-the-li...

Re: Switching back to Taz 6 single extruder from dual extruder

I think steps 1 and 2 are out of order. You should flash the firmware than swap the printhead, else you'll get an error that it can't detect one of the printheads from the dual print head (E0 I think) when you power it back on. Unless of course if you swap it out with power on, then those steps will...

Re: Major PLA curling issues

Good question about the flow rate! I just did some research on it myself this past week. Basically, things expand and contract so you need to compensate for that by adjusting your flow rate. If things didn't expand and contract then your flow rate would be 100% and would be dimensionally correct. In...

Re: Major PLA curling issues

Wet sanding has always been superior to dry sanding. You only need a little water, either dip the sandpaper in water or use a spray bottle to spray on a little water. Of course, do this with the printer off. Dry sanding you may end up with dust on your electronics and axis rods, so.... choose your c...

Re: Major PLA curling issues

What's your Z-offset? It might be too far away. Mine is set too -1.50. I bottom out at 1.56. Also, It sticks too much, sometimes its hard to get the print off the bed at 60C. I set my bed at 55C. Another thing is if your PEI surface is too smooth, wet sand it with 1500 to 2000 grit sand paper. The c...
