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...

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...
