Okay so I got my new taz last week and have been playing quite a bit with it. Now I have even more questions
what is the Z height supposed to be from the table? Instructions call out a folded sheet of paper but the machinist in me just can't accept that as a valid form of measurement.....so do we say .007 .009 or .005 off the table? does this ever change with differing material or does it stay consistent?
just now while reading around a bit it says to flash the firmware, which I had thought I had done but maybe not? my E0 steps was set at 800 but the literature I got with the machine says it should have been 842 would this make a big difference?
Leveling the table, I can get the table dead perfect in the four corners (using a .0001 dial indicator) plus or minus .0003 any way ( I am quite amazed at the repeatability of this little machine! now the bad thing the table rises .015 in the center of the table, I was accrediting this to a warped table but just thought that perhaps this is the dreaded X axis sag that I hear about. Is this amount of sag/ warpage present me with a major hurdle? anyway to add some compensation someplace to compensate for this? or does .015 not make much difference? ( In my world .015 is kinda like kicking field goals lengthwise on a field)
When i print any of the files supplied by lulzbot the prints come out pretty darned nice and I am quite impressed, when I print any other files it is pretty much hit or miss, could their codes be set with a profile with perfected profiles settings?
when I look in cura under expert settings advanced tab i see initial layer thickness set at .425 highlighted in yellow this seems high to me (please keep in mind I know nothing, just call me 'Sargent Schultz' and the only reason it seems high is if I change it too .3 or less the yellow goes away and highlighting is never good..... they never highlighted a passing grade on my report cards in school....It would have saved them a lot of pens had they)
- When I download and the load profiles into Cura do I need to do this each time or does Cura keep track of them for me? I would assume it keeps track for me
and lastly could you guys share your favorite settings for PLA HIPS and ABS bed temp and extruder temp I keep seem to be finding conflicting recommendations. I have been using 230 and 110 for both HIPS and ABS so far, I have no PLA as of yet but will be getting some in the mail on Thursday I believe.
In advance Thank You
