Re: Moving Nozzle Position for Z homing

If all you are replacing on the TAZ 6 is the tool head, then the auto level process should be almost identical. Look at how LulzBot has defined their tool heads in their version of Marlin. You should be able to adjust the coordinates to match where your nozzle is compared to where one of LulzBot's t...

Re: BobCAD

It doesn't surprise me that BobCAD can't input .stl files. Most CAD/CAM programs have a native format that contains details of the design. After converting to .stl, most of those details have been lost. There are programs that allow editing of .stl files. I use Tinkercad for simple changes. Slicers ...

Re: Order the Aerostruder

I damaged my hotted to the point that it would be hard to repair. But I want to replace my Hotend so I don't have these parts just sitting around. You didn't say much about what model your tool head is and how it got damaged, but wouldn't it be easier to replace the damaged hotend with a stock Hexa...

Re: Vertical "spikes" on outer corners of prints

I could swear I've seen a description of this problem along with a solution, but I can't find it now, so this is what I remember. With PLA, more cooling seems to help. A small desk fan blowing across the part after the first layer or two. If the part is small, print two of them at the same time to g...

Re: LCD Print Time Not Updating

From the printer console, what does "M73 P25" do to the LCD screen? It should put the bar at 25% (see http://marlinfw.org/docs/gcode/M073.html I vaguely remember that the firmware shipped with my TAZ 6 didn't have support for the bar but later versions did. What version of Marlin is loaded in your p...

Re: Moving Nozzle Position for Z homing

First, I would suggest that you use the LulzBot Marlin repository as your base ( https://code.alephobjects.com/diffusion/MARLIN/marlin.git ) as that will make sure you have any printer specific changes. Second, in the start gcode between the G28 XY and the G28 Z is a G1 command that moves the nozzle...

Re: Alignment issues when merging STL Files

CuraLE uses the nozzle offset(s) set in the machine profile to generate GCode that has the coordinates adjusted for the current nozzle. Programs like the GCode Analyzer don't understand dual extruders and therefore the picture they draw should be offset. You can change CuraLE to not offset the GCode...

Re: Autodesk Fusion 360 / threads not printing

Sounds like you need a third opinion... If you are using Windows 10, Microsoft's 3D Builder is available from the store. It has a decent viewer and it is also a useful tool for repairing .stl files. If you are not using Windows 10, there are other free .stl viewers available. Even Tinkercad is usefu...

Re: Glass bed broken

One glass bed broken and support says they don't have any history of broken glass beds... I'd push back on a warranty replacement unless the warranty has expired (or the event that broke the glass bed is outside the warranty) in which case, I'd just buy another one from LulzBot. Yours appears to be ...

Re: Cleaning Build Plate

At some point in your 3D printing career, you will find that the "Recommended" Print Setup in CuraLE (or any other slicer) isn't going to give you "Ideal" prints. The solution is to click on "Custom" and after the initial shock of seeing so many things to tweak, you will find that there are usually ...
