At least I think that’s the problem. I’ve had my Taz 6 and have been printing happily for months now, but recently I’ve been having my first print failures, I had narrowed it down to some prints not sticking to the bed and it was when I started printing these calibration cubes that I saw this issue.
So I started watching the first layer like a hawk and noticed some strangeness and stopped the print several times with this result
Now, i’m still new at this, learning as I go, but I thought this was maybe overextrusion? So I performed the extruder calibration instructions here: https://ohai.lulzbot.com/project/extruder_calibration/calibration/
It was only off by a few millimeters, so I edited it as instructed. Still no joy. So I thought to myself, Maybe i’ve changed something, let me go back and factory reset it, and print my first rocktupus again using the included file and the Ngen they provided. After all, my first print was pretty nice, especially it’s first layer as you can see here:
Except for the fact that I broke a leg getting it off the plate (It was my first time!)
But, printing another Rocktupus ended up like this:
Yes, I broke two arms off of this one…I was frustrated…Anyway.
Thoughts? I’ve attempted to change the Z Axis with little success. Starting at 1.500 I’ve decreased it little by little and am now down to 1.437 and it doesn’t seem to be working.
I’m still new at this so any advice you can give is appreciated, thanks.
