First time poster long time reader. Here it goes…
I built my TAZ from source and have had my fair share of up’s and downs with it. I had a Prusa i2 before I built the TAZ and loved it. Once it was dialed in I could print for hours without any issues. I was using a wades style extruder with a jhead and never had any problems with filament stripping or leaky nozzles.
I have calibrated the E-steps several times, double-checked the gears on the extruder, have a fan on the nozzle(devzero mount), purchased different filament, tried different tensions on the extruder springs, printed the new filament arm from the TAZ 3 thinking the real was binding… I just can get a successful print. I had originally purchased a replica buda off of ebay and thought there might be something up with the nozzle so I purchased one from Lulzbot. I installed the new nozzle and was able to print a few things before the stripping came back.
Any help is greatly appreciated and I am all ears on any ideas on how to fix this. Attached are my slic3r and config.h files. I am printing with 3mm PLA filament at 180C. The stripping doesn’t seem to happen as often with ABS,
