So my TAZ5 was printing awesomely with the normal tool head. I recently installed Piercet’s X- and Y- Open Rail axis modifications, and once I got them dialed in I was able to crank out several prints beautifully (and fast!).
So I ordered a Dual Extruder V2 and installed it, and I’m trying to print ABS using HIPS support… and it’s not going well. I probably just need to keep fiddling with my settings to try to fix most of the problems… The big thing I’m concerned about is that the printer now appears to be skipping steps, mostly in the X direction.
So far what I’m seeing is the type of thing where each layer is offset from the next by a tiny amount, so the whole print is sorta sliding off in one direction. Then every now and then, maybe every 10 to 50 layers, I’ll get a big jump (big being like 1 or 2 mm) in one direction.
I didn’t change anything apart from installing the dual extruder and flashing the firmware. Any ideas?
