Re: Incommunicado Mac and printer host choices

This is a bug in Cura, not a problem with the Mac. Especially since no other Slicer software has this issue. Plug your printer into the Mac, then in Cura, go into Machine Settings (Machine -> Machine Settings). Change the Serial Port from Auto to the port that OS X configured for your printer. It sh...

Re: Taz 6 Tool Head on Taz 5?

I bought a Ver 2C Toolhead from Amazon and it turned out to be a TAZ 6 design with 2 cooling fans and a larger fan for the Heatsink. It must have been a mistake because the ones they have now are the TAZ 5 design. Anyway, I had to glue a 5mm wide spacer to the X Carriage. It works like a charm. You ...

Re: My Printing Journey.

It'd mean I find a suitable power source I can tap into and then solder up a micro usb adapter cable for it. I added a BeagleBone to my Taz. There is a 5V tap on the Rambo that provides plenty of current. I wired from it to a power plug that I mounted to the side, and plug the BeagleBone into that....

Re: How to hack Cura 2.1 for LulzBot 3D Printers

Like S3D. Ability to control fan speed, flow rate, movement speed etc for bridging moves. I bought S3D about a 1 1/2 years ago and just started using it last month. It is far superior to anything out there. Have built up a bunch of different profiles. I got tired of Slic3r crashing all the time and...

Re: Best filament for going to RTV rubber molding

Maybe it's just me, but I just threw out 3 spools of Makergeeks High Temperature PLA. No matter what temperature I print it at or how much or little pressure I put on the Idler, it gets chewed up in the Hobbed Bolt. It comes out fine for the first 1/2 to 1 inch of height, then gets chewed up. I got ...

Re: My Printing Journey.

Its in download.lulzbot.com under the taz 6 section. That being said, the taz 6 one is designed to work only with auto leveling. It will hit the taz 5 without modification. There is a thingiverse alternative however. I'm using the TAZ 6 Extruder assembly on my TAZ 4 without issues. I only had to gl...

Re: When to change Nozzle size?

Do you have to heat the hot end when replacing a Nozzle on a new Hexagon that has never been used?

I've got a couple of Hotends fom Lulzbot with 0.35 Nozzles and a couple AO Hotends from Reprap Discount with 0.30 Nozzles and I'd like to replace the Nozzles with 0.4 and 0.5 sizes.

Re: Zebra Plate

I use Zebra Plates (PrintnZ) for all PLA printing. Since PLA with the Zerbra Plates does not require a heated bed, all you need is some Borosilicate with the Zebra placed on top. You'll need new corner mounts (or risers to place on the ones you have now). These are on Thingiverse. I'll try to find a...

Re: Power Supply Fan Upgrade [Tutorial]

What I'm going to test is tapping into the 24 Vcc that's coming from the PSU That's what I did. But I attached a 5 Amp 12 volt converter so I can power more stuff (one of those encapsulated things). I'm glad I decided to hook the wires up internally because while doing so, all of the wires in the s...
