Re: Rasberry PI And Webcam For The TAZ

The Raspberry Pi 3 Model B is the current version and has built-in Wi-Fi. They run for about $35. You can print out a case that mounts to the side of the TAZ 6 control box: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2580671 I run OctoPi as my print server on a Pi3 for my TAZ 6 and it has worked very well. I ...

Re: Extruder V3 Availbaility

Oh man.... I got an email that units were in stock, but unavailable again in under 3 hours. Haha, this could be challenging. Are there any bugs or quirks that the team is still working to resolve with this product? I don't mind helping to work out issues, but would like to know if I'm going to have ...

Re: Dual Extruder V3 looks promising!

Print looks pretty good. Is this with the latest FW from Cura .63? Any glitches that needed a workaround?

Im curious if this unit works with 1.75mm filament as well as the other tool heads do. Might limit oozing problems?

Extruder V3 Availbaility

I see that this item is still unavailable. I read that upgrade kits for the existing V2 units were being postponed so that parts are available for production units, which i can appreciate. Is there any timeline or ETA on new units and upgrade kits?

Re: Dual Extruder V3 looks promising!

Thanks for the pictures. The white print is clearly affected by something. The black one looks to be as good as a single extruder print. The hot ends are identical, correct? Were these printed in the same job or as individual prints? I have read that there were some problems with the mounting hole p...

Re: Dual Extruder V3 looks promising!

I enjoyed the details. Please update after you do some dual extrusion tests. Very interested to hear the results.

You bring up a good point about Auto bed leveling. I wonder how that would work with a side-by-side design.

Dual Extruder V3 looks promising!

I was looking at my dual v2.1 unit (that I used less than once...) thinking that there HAD TO BE a better design. I spent hours calibrating it only to be frustrated by the amount of sag and vibration. I work with Stratasys uPrint 3D printers that have a very compact head that uses only one motor to ...

Re: TAZ 6 RAMBo 1.3L Heat Sinks

1) They fall off and short the board sometimes, and with a proper fan they aren't necessary. 2) No, L is the version after version K. The motor drivers don't get all that hot if you have a cooling fan on them. 3) Yup. The new OHAI kit pictures for the latest assembly instructions does not show them...

TAZ 6 RAMBo 1.3L Heat Sinks

Can someone clarify this? I bought a TAZ 6 a few months ago with a serial number in the 24000 range. I was about to start a 20+ hour print but ran across several comments on the internet about issues with the Z axis controller overheating due to its heat sink falling off. To prevent possible damage ...

Re: Potentially dangerous behaviour of Taz 6

All good ideas, the one thing you need to remember is the processor in a Rambo board is very limited compared to a computer. There isn't necessarily any processor overhead available to add cpu intensive pieces to without going with a newer style board. I have seen Arduino based MD5 libraries out th...
