I received my TAZ workhorse earlier this week. I had horrible hairy prints with the polymaker pla, but I was able to drill down that it was due to the heat. I had to set it to 230C to resolve the issue, however there is still minimal stringing with the polymaker filament, but its acceptable.
I’m using esun filament now, and I’m seeing the same sort of hairy/stringing with all different sorts of heating and retraction settings.
I have not done any sort of calibrating, should I look into that? If so, what should I calibrate? I’ve seen this with 2 different filaments from two different manufacturers, and I’ve seen some other people complain about the same thing, but I have yet to find anything to resolve this issue. One amazon reviewer said turning on linear advance resolved his issue, however it did nothing for me. I set it to “K1”. However, I have turned it off for now. I do not want to return this printer, but for the money I will have to return this if I cannot resolve this issue soon. Minus the stringing, its an amazing machine.
I’ve tried changing the retraction settings, heat, travel speed, print speed, and so on. I still end up with these hairy prints:
Here are my settings:
