Re: TAZ 6 print size

The usable print dimensions I believe are 280mm x 280mm for length and width and 250mm for height so that would be 11.02" x 11.02" and 9.8" tall. That should be right on the website for the specs of the printer. You can change the orientation a part is being printed to make it fit the bed..like take...

Re: TAZ 5 "Y" scaling issue

The one thing I don't see mentioned is checking the steps for the axis. They can be set through the control on the taz. X and Y should have the same steps if I remember correctly and Z is much higher due to the drive rods. The steps on my Taz6 are X100.50 Y100.50 Z1600.00 and I would assume the Taz ...

Re: Taz 6 Prints Rough Initial Layers But The Rest Are Perfect

Ahh...I would play with the z-offset then to try and bring it closer to the bed for your initial layer. That's available through the control on the taz. Have you printed with any other materials and noticed a problem or is this your first material you are working with on it? I don't know how close y...

Re: Taz 6 Prints Rough Initial Layers But The Rest Are Perfect

I've had that issue with trying to print a cooling duct for my Ender 3 called the petsfang. It has a bottom edge with a curve similar to what your printing and the problem is layer adhesion. It took me a while to figure out I needed a bunch of small supports for the radius edge and once I got them r...

Re: Wanted - Taz 6 - Removable flexible bed mod ideas

I am going to try a heatbed I found on Aliexpress which is a 300watt PCB style with a 3mm aluminum plate and it comes with a spring steel sheet already. The heatbed has magnets under it similar to what the newest Prusa has. Supposedly high temp magnets so it should work at 110c. Long wait time to ge...

Re: Lulzbot TAZ 6 - SHIFT PRINTING PROBLEM

The first things that should be checked when there is layer shifting is belt tension and that the grub screws on the toothed pulleys are tight. You should also make sure the connectors going to the x and y stepper motors are fully seated but be sure to do this with the printer turned off...messing w...

Re: Wanted - Taz 6 - Removable flexible bed mod ideas

I don't think thick pei would be a good choice since pei is more of a thermal insulator than a conductor. When the pei is thin it's not much of an issue when if it is thick then that's an entirely different ball game.

Re: TAZ modular bed... metal plate sags.

What I have used on my Ender 3 printer was a thin silicone thermal pad on top of the aluminum heat bed and then placed the glass on top of it. It works great and has very good heat transfer...cheap too! https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01N9HGKR1/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02__o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=...

Re: Taz 6 with Duet Wifi board and BL-Touch

Thanks. I was a bit worried the wireless would have an issue inside the metal control box but I haven't had any issues with reception. I may still design and print a plate to go where the stock display is since it's not in use any longer.

Re: New Taz 6 - Layer change problems

I would suggest looking into linear advance which helps with the flow of filament especially at the stop and start of a line. There is a testing tool that marlin has but the trick with the Taz is getting the bed leveling commands into the file. When I still had the rambo board in mine I would just c...
