Fixed issues and many kudos to excellent tech support guys at Aleph Objects for the help.
What I had to do was calibrate the default z axis offset and clean the print bed, contacts and clean the nozzle. Now it prints great!
So I bought a new Taz 6 printer and went through the setup and the extruder worked fine BUT when I try to print the sample rocktopus, nothing comes out of the extruder except for tiny bits of fine filament. The printer is moving fine on all three axis but nothing is coming out of the extruder. This is odd because I ran a test to see if filament would come out which it did. Any ideas how to fix this?
