I HAD the 12v bed actually since I got my taz right off the line of Kickstarter however I have since upgraded the power supply!
I tried flashing the taz 5 firmware and running the new nozzle last night (without the blower setup) and it was acting really weird! Maybe the blower really is necessary? I have designed a quick connect from the original wire harness to the new 16 pin harness so I can easily switch between the buda and hexagonal now…
It would extrude a nice even flow of material manually, as well as with the extrude button.
When I would actually run a print, the nozzle would do its thing but nothing would really “flow” and eventually it would stop extruding. The filament diameter & nozzle size were correct and the rest of the settings were stock taz 5 Cura.
It’s almost like it was under extruding and then it would begin to clog, while the hobbolt was doing burn outs… This happened twice with 2 different types of material
Could this be the missing blower? Or could I have the resistor wires backwards? The temps was reading normal and it appears to be accurate (because I could manually extrude). I don’t have a temperature gun to check either.
I appreciate the help because I don’t feel like trouble shooting this one…
