Re: Not sure where to begin...sub par print quality on my TAZ 6

Interesting, is there a chart for recommended idler tension for the various filaments? I've used the jig from the beginning and (to my knowledge) have not had any issues. For example, same jig used to set the Mini's idler tension. The Benchy on the left is the one printed on it using the quickprint ...

Re: Not sure where to begin...sub par print quality on my TAZ 6

Thanks @piercet. I know the idler springs are set correctly as I use the jig Lulzbot made to set the tension. Interesting you should mention "inconsistent extrusion" though. I completely forgot about something...A few days ago I calibrated the e-steps on my Mini, dialed it right in. Tried to do it o...

Not sure where to begin...sub par print quality on my TAZ 6

Hi there, Wondering if anyone has any suggestions of where to start trying to 'fix' my issue. I've noticed recently that the prints I'm getting off my TAZ6 have not been very good. I can't recall anything that has happened to cause it or even really when it started happening (sadly I have a lot of p...

Re: New Mini Not Extruding

The Mini was my first printer and I haven't looked back. Glad to have helped with this issue. Went through it myself and recognized the symptoms. I'll be more than happy to help you out with whatever z-axis issue you're having, don't get discouraged. You will constantly see the Mini and the big brot...

Re: Print head STL

Didn't even think to try but good to know. One thing I liked about the old setup was using the idler latch tension jig to make sure I had the spring tension always set correctly. Seem to be OK with the new one. Thanks

Re: New Mini Not Extruding

Nope, the idler should be one piece. No worries though, it is a very easy process to swap it out and does not require dismantling the printer. As I recall it is just the one small bolt right in the front at the idler hinge area. All you need is an allen key to fit. Below is the Service Bulletin from...

Re: Print head STL

You need the new latch designed to be used with the new beefy idler. I don't think the original latch was desingned/intended to be used with the new one. Here's the link to the beefy idler latch (attached as well): http://devel.lulzbot.com/mini/Gladiola/production_parts/printed_parts/beefy_idler_lat...

Re: Taz 6 stopped print when I booted into Windows

Yep, kind of a PITA, but I always unplug the USB and hang it on the small plastic loop that's right by the USB port on the back. Ever since figuring out the same thing you noticed my TAZ6 failed prints have about disappeared.

Re: Mini print bed harness clip

Going to be replacing my Mini bed shortly. Looks like a nice little clip. I'll give it a try. ABS @ 100% infill%

Thanks
