I have a TAZ 5, I am starting to have feed issues when getting to the bottom of a spool.
I am guessing the factory winds the spools with the filament warm, thus causing the filament to have a “memory” after it cools.
At the beginning of the spool it feeds just fine, however, as I get down to the bottom of the spool the tighter curvature of the filament is causing issues. It doesn’t want to unwind and the spool is hanging up.
I am in the process of building an inclosure for ABS printing, will the extra heat in the box help relax the filament and feed better?
I have also been looking into other ways of holding the spool. Currently I am using the hook that comes with the printer.
