Extruder Tension

I’m just about to try printing with my recently assembled kittaz, but I can’t seem to find the instructions for how to adjust the two thumb screws that control the idler pressure in the extruder. Can someone point me to what I’m over looking?


We typically find that the spring on the two extruder screws work well when compressed to around 5mm. Your printer may like slightly more or slightly less tension. Use the quick start guide found here: http://download.lulzbot.com/TAZ/4.1/documentation/current/setup_guide/quick_start_guide_2.pdf on page six, step 3.
