Hello everyone, first time posting here. I have a Lulzbot Taz 6 in my possession and I can’t, for the life of me, dial it in. It prints okay on small items but larger items (meaning it takes up a majority of the bed) are coming out unusable. These are the issues that I’m having…
the right side of the bed (as you’re looking at it from the front) prints thinner than the right on the initial layer. Nearly .5mm thinner. While the right side prints too thick and often will not adhere to the bed surface. I’m using a new PEI sheet at the moment. The Z-offset adjustments do not seem to help until it hits the 3rd layer or so.
while performing many of the troubleshooting steps I found on here, I’ve noticed that there seems to be an OVER correction to the auto bed leveling. I’m using a .203mm feeler gauge on top of the right front corner washer and that has assisted, but not completely corrected the initial layer problem.
my layers are inconsistent throughout the print. It can print beautifully for about 5-10 layers and then it’s as if it just gives up on accuracy.
I am having some warping issues. After the initial layers (about 4) I have to manually turn down the bed temp to prevent edge curling.
I have used these printers in the past and have had some pretty great product come out of them. Not sure if I have a lemon or if this is just me chasing a rabbit down the hole for a simple fix.
I am running Marlin v220.127.116.11 single head extrusion.
Material: PLA (205-220)
Temp settings: 206-210
Bed temp: 60 and under
And all Cura settings are on recommended until I can find out what it causing my initial layer problem.
I’m going to attempt to post a pic of the test tugboat to illustrate the issues. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
