Re: TAZ Very loose Solid rod bearings?

Better late than never... What's the Rockwell on the 10mm shafts that Lulzbot supplies on the TAZ? There's no Rockwell, apparently they're Misumi SSFHR10-500 stainless steel rotary shafts - that is, according to the TAZ BOM available here: http://downloads.lulzbot.com/lulzbot/TAZ/hardware/ Misumi pr...

Re: ABS Juice Application

I followed the exact "formula" stated in the Lulzbot manual. IMHO if you have an uneven application, it means your ABS slurry has too much ABS in it. Mine is liquid apart from some undissolved ABS at the bottom of the bottle that I shake before using. I used natural ABS and after application on the ...

Re: Slic3r Support Material Settings?

As I said I am a Linux user so I cannot use Meshmixer.

Re: Aleph Mountain Photos January 11th, 2014

Wow! :) I like your office, and the view from it! I'm assuming the first few pictures are of your office. :D Real impressive printer farm! That's 108 printers now? I'm curious about the pink TAZ in the upper shelf in picture DSC_0118 , specifically the Y_Bearing made of three plastic parts. Was that...

Re: Slic3r Support Material Settings?

Have you heard of Meshmixer by Autodesk? It's a mesh editing program that in its latest version can generate scaffold-type support structure. I think that's the way the slicers will have to go to make support easier to remove. http://www.3ders.org/articles/20130924-meshmixer-2-is-out-with-new-suppor...

Re: What settings to use with Kisslicer on the TAZ?

Even if it was online the KISSlicer forum would be useless to you, it's been invaded by spammers for a long time. I checked it out last week and the amount of spam topics was staggering. Maybe the forum admin is finally doing something about it. I've read elsewhere that KISSlicer's future is in ques...

Re: Nozzles clogging

Extrusion issues are typically caused by {...} leaving the hot end at extrusion temperatures when idle. I had clogging issues which were resolved by submerging the nozzle in acetone, that still left some residual gunk inside, I don't remember how I removed it, possibly with the "precision probe" (s...

Re: Bed Leveling and Nozzle Height

I do this when the machine is at full operating temperature, and has been for at least 12 minutes to fully account for thermal expansion. Even the hot end? Doesn't plastic oozing out the nozzle tip mess up the results? Also, I do not like letting my hot end idle at high temp for long minutes, I'm p...

I made one in FreeCAD, I could export it to STEP but it's not complete, it's missing most of the harware.

Let me know if you're interested.

Re: AO-100 nozzle depth during print

I had the same exact problem when I printed those simple drawer knobs I designed. I was using my clam knife to flatten the top of the knobs while the hot end was printing. :D Doing what Orias suggests: enforce a minimum layer time in Slic3r under Filament Settings > Cooling Made a big difference. So...
