Re: lulzbot taz 6 - bad phone case print

I don't think this is a heat related issue anymore, because i tested it again using PLA this time. Pictures might help, as you can see, all of them failed to print the middle section, totally clueless why. I have attached the stl file too, maybe you can try to print at your end. I can't figure out w...

Re: lulzbot taz 6 - bad phone case print

Yes ABS is a pain in the ass. I understood what you mean about the cooling part, which is why in my new setting i set fan on only after 3mm, so the layers in question does not have any cooling whatsoever, and I see no warping, all edges sticking well. It starts curling when the nozzle move to a new ...

Re: lulzbot taz 6 - bad phone case print

Ok too soon to celebrate. After the passing trial with your suggestion(I tested it with benchy previously), I decided to print a new phone case. Now this time is unlike anything I've seen before, halfway through the print, the filament curls upward towards the nozzle instead of sticking to the bed! ...

Re: lulzbot taz 6 - bad phone case print

ok it seems to work now, i turn on fan for all levels, no problem so far. First time using ABS with fan on lol. I'm beginning to suspect if this is material issue. Anyway, so is it safe to assume that any flat surfaces printed with support will come out rough and there's no workaround for smooth fla...

Re: lulzbot taz 6 - bad phone case print

Thanks piercet. If requiring fan for ABS, should I increase the temp a 5 degrees C to compensate for the cooling factor? How do I glue ABS to ABS parts? :shock:

lulzbot taz 6 - bad phone case print

I've been getting really bad prints when printing phone cases that needed support. Even without support, the vertical walls of the case printed with a lot of bobs or blobs, not smooth at all. (Picture Side1 & Side2). In addition, when printing with support for the back of the case due to embossed wo...

Re: lulzbot Taz 6 - Bottom layers?

Like you said, "fairly" :D My cooling fans are on starting at very bottom layers. Perhaps you may want to look at my settings and Marvin again. The video is only comparing printers with and without cooling fans on. One thing caught my attention is that he mentioned his perimeter during the print was...
