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...

Re: Taz 6 Extruder Swapping

I myself like to place a sticker with the E Steps for the single extruder so I have the needed number/s when I change back to the single from the dual. Best to record before you change to the dual. Is that all you have to do besides choosing the single extruder in the Cura Machine Settings? Since t...
