Latest Printer fix on Taz 6

Anyone have to disassemble or unscrew part of the TAZ 6 printer yet? I just had the standard arm that comes with the printer break to hold up the filament.

So, I just got on Autodesk Fusion 360 and took a picture of the darn broken one piece and modeled it up with some minor extra features that I thought would make improvements and walla…I got a fixable solution to a down machine.

What’s a story you guys have for the starting prints for your projects? Any background for why you created the models to be sliced and additively created/printed for manufacturing. hehe GL HF with the working printers and all the headaches that come with them!!!

I never installed the filament arm that comes with the Taz 6. I have had three Taz 6 printers and one of the first things I do is print and install a filament tower that mounts on top of the frame. This provides easy change of filament and more importantly, a direct path for the filament to the hot end.

If you don’t want to print your own, this is a nice alternative.

Ah, right now i already broke the one that came with the printer and just printed my own spool holder. Thanks for the suggestions. I’ll take a look at it.
