Re: TAZ 6, Slop?

Remove the Head and check all the screws and nuts, I found some were missing and some nearly falling out! Thanks, good call. Snugged up all the x-carriage nuts, some were not quite tight, but not sure if they were really loose either. Also did the Y-axis bushing and belt mounts for good measure. Th...

Re: Taz 6 Tiliapia Strengthened Extruder mount with Filament Tube Guide

Lower the extrusion width to .35 I believe. Those things walls are narrow and won't print if the extrusion width is too high. Looks like I can get it to show up if I set it to a .3 nozzle, only issue is that I have a .5... Do you or anyone else know of any way to force cura to add the lines even if...

Re: Taz 6 Tiliapia Strengthened Extruder mount with Filament Tube Guide

I have it all posted on thingiverse now http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1149597 Finally got around to trying to print this, but for some reason it's not printing out the supports for the bearing hole or the idler mount no matter what I try for settings in CURA I'm only getting the base frame at th...

Re: Did I fry my mini RAMBo?

If so, I'll take my loss and replace the board, but can anyone explain how the board can so easily be fried by holding the hot-end with one adjustable spanner and turning the nozzle with another while heating the hot-end? I understand there's a lot of current going to the heater, but that should be...

TAZ 6, Slop?

I've been noticing more and more some really pronounced banding in my prints. In the attached picture I have some good examples. These were all printed with PolyLite PLA, first three were using the provided cura "quick print" profile and the last three on "high detail" It doesn't seem to matter whic...

I'm assuming after bed leveling. Did u fix it? What I've done so far: Measured filament in several places and averaged. Lowere...

Re: Extrusion delay - TAZ 6

Thanks to pyrokld, this did resolve my issue. Now it lays a blob down in the corner before proceeding with the skirt, brim or part. Glad to hear it works for others too, I first tried to dial it back a bit so I didn't get too much of a blob, but I kind of like that it helps my skirts start cleaner ...
