Re: Marlin 1.1 config for TAZ6?

My guess is that it has never been a part of stock Marlin but a Lulzbot feature. I've been looking into 1.1 for my Mini and observed the same omission. I still haven't compiled anything (got through merging the config files so far) but planned combining the probe_failed with the new G12 clean nozzle...

Re: Archim board - looks like an upgraded Rambo

So, what would make you prefer this board over e.g. a Geetech GT2560?

Is it the form factor? Built-in stepper drivers? The fuses? Build quality?

Re: changing nozzle size

That's exactly what the nozzle size setting is for.

Re: extrude quality

Have you tried cold pulls to see if there's some dirt in the heater/nozzle?

Re: Mini - Marlin FW 1.1RC3

The git repo seems to be a little out of sync with Marlin upstream. Are you actively maintaining this? I'm considering porting Lulzbot Mini FW to Marlin 1.1.3 (current) and made first steps. What Mini specific code did you inherit from AO to make this work? The only thing I can think of is the wipe ...

Re: TAZ6 and Slic3R?

And make sure you download 1.3.0-dev instead of the old 1.2.9. I know -dev sounds scary but it's lightyears ahead of 1.2.9!
http://dl.slic3r.org/dev/ The files you see there are builds of the last git commits (hence the strange characters in the name).

Re: TAZ6 and Slic3R?

I don't own a Taz6, but what I did for my Mini was just copy over the start and end gcode from Cura to Slic3r and configured that printer with what I knew where the correct (bed, extruder, ) dimensions and filament presets etc. and was good to go. Realise however that it took me a while to understan...

Re: Taz 6 Stepper drivers

I'm not sure about the Taz 6 specifics, but the Geeetech 2560 seemed a fairly good replacement for the Mini. http://www.geeetech.com/wiki/index.php/GT2560 Of course you'd need to do some homework porting Lulzbot Taz6 FW for this board, but I think that would be quite straightforward. Also see this d...
