I have a relatively new Taz Mini. It’s maybe been printing for about 15 hours, all in ABS from matterhackers, mostly with simplify 3d, but also with Cura a couple times depending on the laptop available. I was having no issues at all and then the other day I changed the filimant to white from black, went to make a print, and the initial skirt seemed to print like the bed wasn’t level. The back corner of the skirt seemed to be extruding higher off the bed from the rest of it and you can see that the extrusions are not close together but clearly apart. When pulling the skirt off the bed, the part that isn’t close together is not connected and like individual strands. This is the same side of the print for different shaped prints I have tried. I’m attaching a couple pictures to show the variation in the layers on the different sides of the print.
I’ve tried different prints in cura and simplify 3d. I’ve tried changing the filament back. I’ve flipped the wiping pad. I’ve brought the hotend up to temp and wiped it down with a small towell a couple times. I’ve wiped down the corner disks too.
Everything is with the same settings that I was previously using successfully. 0.1mm layer height. 240 hotend and 110 bed.
I’m no expert printer and have just been doing this for a couple months. With our taz5 and our printrbot, we have to take care of the leveling ourselves, which is one reason the mini has been the go to for small projects. I’m a teacher and trying to get things ready for an afterschool class starting next week!
Any ideas or recommendations?
