New Taz6 owner here, just got it yesterday. I printed this dungeon tile and have a question regarding what I am seeing on the printed object. I am coming to this new platform from a 1.75mm Prusa MK3 so this larger filament is a new thing for me. I don’t see these kinds of striations on the smaller filament size printing the same object. I am not sure what to start tweaking to get those lines to disappear. The bridging that is done in some of the corners is not the issue, there is a hole in each of the four corners that gets covered up. You can see in the picture how the flat layer has gaps in between each pass of the print-head.
This is printed at a .25 layer height on a .50mm nozzle from Simplify3d with 4 top layers, 3 bottom layers, and 2 shells. The part is very sturdy. I have the bottom (1st) layer pretty well dialed in (I think) as I adjusted the Z offset until the gaps disappeared but these gaps on upper layers have me confused. I have never seen gaps between lines on upper layers in any previous prints from other printers. My extrusion width is set to auto which is showing it at .60mm and currently my extrusion multiplier is at .92.
I know it’s hard to diagnose some of this stuff without knowing every setting and just looking at a picture but any suggestions on where I should start tweaking would be greatly appreciated.
This printer has provided, by far, the best 3d printing experience I have had out of the box of any 3d printer I have ever owned. It has taken me three months to get my MK3 dialed in to a point where I find the prints acceptable and it is still not where I want them to be. The print in the picture above is the first print on this machine after the rocktopus and a calibration circle and I am highly impressed with the print after only a few hours of unboxing, setup, and flashing of firmware.
Thanks in advance
