Re: lulzbot Taz 6 - Bottom layers?

Hi Brent, thanks for your suggestion. I printed Marvin with tweak as you suggested, lower temp. and higher fan speed at lower layers. However, as you can see in the picture it still failed at bridging on between the legs and the top part of the eye. Also you can see some stringing at the top part of...

Re: lulzbot Taz 6 - Bottom layers?

You almost gave me a heartache, i thought I'm doing it wrong, but not, as you can see the picture below. I'm turning it clockwise to move the nozzle up, and it stays negative. The original value was -1.500 if I recall correctly.

Re: lulzbot Taz 6 - Bottom layers?

That is the problem, i think it's because of the printer auto leveling feature, i changed my Zoffset setting to -1.474 already. It seems auto leveling keeps pushing the nozzle down and there's nothing i can do, which makes the Zoffset configuration quite redundant for my printer :(

lulzbot Taz 6 - Bottom layers?

Hello, I am having frustrating issues with both ABS and PLA bottom layers print. I can't get it right, it always turns out ugly and I'm not experienced enough to tweak too much around with the settings. However, I did try to change the temp for ABS print by -5C as suggested somewhere on the internet...

Re: Lulzbot Taz 6, 3D iphone case with face

Thanks tallslenderguy, and MikeO I'm not concern about the lighting, what I want is the level of details of the face. As you can see my print results are grotesque, lol.. I want it to be able to look like the digital model, presentable. Which leds me to believe I really need a finer nozzle and filam...

Re: Lulzbot Taz 6, 3D iphone case with face

Thanks Jim. I suspect it really is the nozzle size issue. Nothing much I can do now :/

Re: Lulzbot Taz 6, 3D iphone case with face

I am also beginning to think it has something to do with nozzle size and filament size. I'm not sure about the nozzle size, I didn't swap anything, I'm still using the stock nozzle that comes with my Taz 6, but I could see that the default setting for the nozzle size is 0.5 mm. The filament I used i...

Lulzbot Taz 6, 3D iphone case with face

Hi, I'm wondering if my Lulzbot Taz 6 is able to print phone cases with real face or not? I have been trying with different settings but result doesn't come out similar with the 3D models i drawn. Due to the level of details, I have set the layer settings to 0.15 mm in Cura. If there is anyone did t...

De-energizes the stepper motors so you can move/rotate them.
Got it, thanks!

Re: Lulzbot Taz 6 end

Thanks piercet, wonderful piece of advise. I noticed that the gcode function only shows in the "full settings" in Cura, I assumed that the gcode will also be utilized in the "quickprint" mode where it doesnt show the gcode function? I also noticed that when i clicked print the box to adjust the temp...
