I use a TAZ 6 at work and recently got a MINI at home. Generally, the print quality is amazing and really comparable to the TAZ 6, though the dual-sided fans on the 6 do make a difference. Print quality aside, I’ve noticed some differences in what happens when the print is finished that I was hoping someone could shed some light on.
Z-Move: On the 6, after the models is done printing, the extruder moves up 10-20mm or so then back to the cooling position. On the MINI, the extruder moves all the way to max z height. Any reason for this?
Heat Bed: On the 6, after the model is done printing, it moves to a cooling position and then homes once the bed is cool enough. However, it keeps the bed at that cooler temp (60 deg for NGEN for example). On my MINI, it completely turns off the heat bed when it’s done cooling. It’s nice to have it kept at a warm temp for removal, but not necessarily nice for the electric bill. Wondering if this is something I can change on a print to print basis maybe?
Either of these could be firmware things or start/end g-code differences, but not sure why they differ between the two machines? Thanks in advance for any help folks can give.
