Does the taz pro have a hot end timeout?

Hi. I’ve been repairing a Taz Pro as its nozzles were blocked because the nozzle got clogged due to some carbonized buildup due to the nozzle being left on 260c for 2 days!

This happened after the filament was loaded and the person apparently just walked away without doing a nozzle cooldown after changing the filament. I’ve worked with the workhorse and it has a hot-end timeout. Therefore, I was wondering if the Taz Pro had a hot-end timeout, and if so, where can I enable it?

There is a timer if inactive for electrical safety reasons but that’s at a certain point

Is there any way to edit that so it activates sooner? Or even enable it? I haven’t seen any hotend timeout happen on the Pro when 15 minutes have passed (That’s when the workhorse hotend times out.)

I am saying a hot extruder not printing anything a long time while hot before it is all day (correction I meant the workhorse)

Not sure how to change the timing of the heat time limit unless it is 3DPrinting then it will stay on

There may be options depending on (if and) what is connected to the USB port of the printer.

I have my TAZ 6 connected to a Raspberry Pi 3B running OctoPrint. I have an OctoPrint plugin that turns off the heaters after an (adjustable) interval of idle time (i.e. not actively printing).

I presonally have a taz workhorse but I hook up my laptop to my lulzbot with the power cable I had to get a cable from USB B to USB C I use a dell XPS laptop

@Glitch404 - Currently the TAZ Pro does not have a hot end idle timeout. This is a known issue that is being worked on.


I read that there often is a timer there chances are something is wrong with the timer
