Good afternoon folks.
First things first. I just got my taz 5 yesterday. Got over a few initial hurdles and am now in the midst of a 31 hour print for a customer.
All things point to good stuff.
A few things i want to discuss.
I plan on buying additional extruders. 1 for modification to handle 1.75mm filament (i have some aluminum + ptfe tubing to use). That seems like a no brainer, given the fact that I have 25 spools of 1.75mm
Do any of you run small nozzles like .25 or .35 on your hex hot ends? do you see a considerable increase in quality of the print? That may be something I explore as well.
Does it make sense to have a separate extruder for different filament types? Ive heard some folks will never mix PLA and ABS, but ive never had an issue. Obviously i wont run PLA and Carbon fiber in the same nozzle, but you get the point.
ABL - I desperately want to find a good solution for auto bed leveling. Does a nice, elegant solution exist for the taz ? I have ABL on my 12x12x12 prusa i3v and i cant begin to tell you how in love with it i am. I never have to level my bed. EVER. More than that, i never have to think about it. I start my print, and i know it will be good.
Wipe pad/ script - I love the taz mini wiping pad. I will search thingiverse for one in a bit, but is that something folks do a fair amount of? It seems with ooze, etc it would be a smart thing to do.
Other upgrades? - I definately like to tinker and get the most out of my printers (i have 4 now). What other upgrades or fun things should I be looking to do with my taz 5? so far im completely enamored with it.
