Octoprint Axis settins for a Taz 6.

Hi all,

I’m curious to know what you’re using for Axis settings for your Taz 6. I’ve got a profile made up with volume based on the specs for the printer but I’m a bit confused as to what to put for the Axis settings.

Thanks,

Jim

Hey Jim,

I’m sure by now you’ve figured out values to use for OctoPrint with your Taz 6 printer.
Just in case you’re wanting to know, the axis speeds, extrusion speeds, and other configuration variables can be extracted from your hardware.
Using the Marlin command of M503, which you can send through Cura or your favorite slicer interface.

You can safely run the default speeds or run the specific values bellow.
My unit (which is running the firmware Marlin_TAZ-6.01_Single_v1.0.2.20_01d5281), just uses the default settings of:
X axis: 6000 mm/min
Y axis: 6000 mm/min
Z axis: 200 mm/min

and your build area is:
X : 280
Y : 280
Z : 250

If you did want to set custom values in OctoPrint, you probably don’t want to go faster than:
X axis: 11,500 mm/min (192 mm/sec)
Y axis: 12,500 mm/min (208 mm/sec)
Z axis: 250 mm/min (4 mm/sec)

Here’s the output of my Taz 6, just in case yours varies.

With the M203 commands set as shown above, even if your gcode tells the printer to move faster, the firmware will not allow it to do so.
