New to 3d printing here and running a taz 6. Apologies if this has been answered before, but I couldn’t really find any answers on the forum specific to taz 6.
Printing primarily with ABS and running into plenty of warping since my parts are pretty big (car parts, ABS due to lowest cost & higher glass transition temp than PLA, please correct me if I’m wrong)
Has anyone done a heated enclosure (or just an enclosure) for the taz 6?
How did you set it up?
Did you build an enclosure around the print area only like this?
Or did you enclose the entire printer?
I also heard that you should vent the electronics in order to avoid frying the rambo board, how do I go about doing this for the Taz 6?
How about the stepper motor? I heard that they will fry if its too hot in the enclosure too.
Would prefer not to split the print into separate parts as much as possible in order to avoid incurring additional labor cost.
I heard from #reprap IRC that the optimal enclosure temperature is 60 degrees celcius, whats your thoughts on this?
Is it necessary or will just an enclosure heated by the ambient heat from the bed and hot end be enough?
I also wish to install Octoprint with a Raspberry Pi 3 with the camera module, how should I go about doing this?
I saw from the world first 3D printed kayak on YouTube that the guy used these aluminum things to set up his heated chamber instead of the acrylic like many enclosures around. What’s your thoughts on this?
Thanks for taking the time to read and apologies for the many questions. I wish to learn as much as possible from the very experienced community here!
