Re: choices for other heated bed

If you are looking to get more even heat dispersal you could look into our modular heat bet kit, because the heating pad is being glued to a metal sheet it does a better job of dispersing the heat evenly across the surface of your bed. We have a video that shows the difference between our older styl...

Will FAT16 also work?
Unfortunately it has to be Fat32, that is the only formatting style that your SD card reader is able to understand.

Re: First Time Printing With Nylon

In Cura if you make sure that the All Category is selected at the very top of the area where you select your Material. In the Material drop down menu there should be a listing up near the top for Bridge Nylon (Taulman) which you could use as a jumping off point. I looked up MatterHackers Nylon print...

Re: New Aerostruder Micro tool head?

I ordered one, and the adapter. Follow-up question: If I were to get a Mini 2, could I use the Mini 2's aerostruder with the Mini 1/adapter combo? You absolutely could, the adapter will allow compatibility with all of the toolheads that have the newer more durable connector that came on the Mini 2....

Re: Making nGen shiny again after sanding

Getting the sanded areas to look exactly like the rest of the model will probably be a bit of a trick unless you sand the rest of the model but you can improve the surface quality of the area you sanded to make it more shiny by sanding it with a finer grit sand paper. Also, Colorfabb has a guide abo...

Re: Homing Failed, Please Reset

How do you adjust the bump stop? I am having the same issue and it’s getting worse. Thanks! To adjust your bump stop you will just need to loosen the two small 1.5mm hex screws that hold it in place (don't completely remove them). Then with the screws loose grip the bump stop and pull it out toward...

Re: Taz 6 Makers series Filament

To give you accurate information about settings that might help with improving your print quality we will need a bit more information about the filament you are printing with. Could you post some photos of the label on your filament roll? Looking on the maker geek website I saw both PLA and ABS in t...

Sorry to hear about the difficulty! It sounds like this is the same issue as was reported here: On that page there is a link to the debian package you should need to resolve this. I am also including the link here just for the sake of ease: https://packages.debian...

Re: First layer weirdness

One thing that I would suggest trying is a bed reconditioning, this will get rid of anything on the PEI sheet that could be inhibiting its adhesive properties as well as add more surface area to the PEI sheet both of which help to improve bed adhesion overall. To recondition your bed get a spray bot...

Re: Z Axis Offset Question

The only benefit(ish) to completing the steps through the GLCD vs your computer is that most people find the process a bit more simple and intuitive through the LCD. I generally adjust my Z-Offset in .05 increments, large enough to be noticeable but small enough that your risk of over shooting and a...
