Re: TAZ 6 - no greasing required on ANY axis?

Just as a note, the lithium grease was recommended on the TAZ 4 Z axis lead screws. We have since redesigned the X end motor and Idler, and have found it is not necessary. However, it will not hurt anything if you would like to add it to your TAZ 6 Z axis lead screws. As you noted, just keep it off...

Re: TAZ 6 Bed Calibration

Yes, please see step 6: Print Octopus & check z-offset https://ohai.lulzbot.com/project/taz-6-final-testing-and-calibration/taz-6/ Be careful and double check my steps before doing the following, possibly contact Lulzbot support first.

Re: MOARstruder

TAZ 6 - no greasing required on ANY axis?

Greetings. First Lulzbot printer here. I have a new Taz 6 and read in the manual that no greasing is required for maintenance.
