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...

Re: Left Z axis threaded rod binding

Update from Tech Support:
“The left z-axis was binding and was causing issues with the print. To fix this I had to replace the z-nut. The nut that was previously on was cracked and was not adjusting properly. Once the new nut was on and adjusted the z-binding went away. No other issues were found”

Re: Left Z axis threaded rod binding

I did contact support, we went through some troubleshooting steps. I swapped the left & right motors, seems the lag followed the motor and began leaning towards the right side slightly; however still at around 7mm in height the left side would bind up and start the failure of the print. The X axis w...

Re: New Taz6, Help with poor prints

This about sounds like the same problem I’m having. https://forum.lulzbot.com/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=7012 I found my left threaded rod to be binding slightly. Can you turn the rods easily by hand with the printer off? If you’re still hearing the dragging sound then it’s not entirely fixed, it will pro...

Left Z axis threaded rod binding

I started getting failed prints, first with the PLA coming off the bed (glue stick fixed problem (so I thought)), then suddenly bubble affect on my print about 5mm high (abort print). I checked the Z axis stepper motor alignments according to step #23 of the Service bulletin (https://www.lulzbot.com...

Re: Cura 2.6.52 Y Axis Misaligned on the Mini

Okay I think I've discovered the problem. I think I had skirt selected. I started a print on your file and it made it all the way around 360 degrees (I hade to scale it back to 97% to get it to work). I started a print on my file without skirt selected and it made it all the way around. Both prints ...

Re: Cura 2.6.52 Y Axis Misaligned on the Mini

I have not verified the set screws on the Y axis, I will do so tonight; however, it printed flawlessly with the older Cura software. The wiper is missing cause the first attempt ran it over and got PLA plastic all melted on top of the felt, I removed it to replace the felt, then I thought that'd be ...

Cura 2.6.52 Y Axis Misaligned on the Mini

IMG_0578.JPG I attempted to print a ring on my mini with a 5.75in diameter with the new Cura software version 2.6.52. When it started to print the diameter fell off the back of the print bed. I do not have "Machine Center is Zero" checked in Machine Settings. I do have the Mini and the Taz 6 set as...

Re: changing nozzle size

At what temperature do you tighten the nozzle to 30in lbs? Cold (room temperature), 270 C? Other? Temperature was never mentioned, only "technique". And the "tighten to 30in lbs" was mentioned as a reply from somebody in support. I have the right size torque wrench, I want to replace the nozzle corr...
