Long story short, I flashed the firmware on my Taz 4 with the newest one available on the downloads page. Taking careful note of the ESteps that were set, etc. Double checked, everything and kicked off a companion cube print!
First and second layers printed ok, I noticed a bit of blobbing at the start…but it worked itself out.
After a few layers things fall apart. I start to notice the sound of the tip grinding (for lack of a better word) on the previous layers. So I let it print a bit longer and come back to this:
Total print time to make this mess was under 10 min. I’m using the downloaded PLA slic3r profile - everything done as I normally would. Something had to have changed in the firmware. It’s almost like it’s not stepping the z axis up enough after each layer.
Anyone have any advice?
