Hey all, we recently purchase a TAZ 5 for our classroom. It is our second printer, the other being an old 3d Touch. Recently we have been running a lot of parts and have had VERY few successes with the TAZ.
If I run PLA I get a clogged extruder nozzle. If I run ABS I get such poor bed adhesion and warping that any part over about 1.5" square is guaranteed to fail.
We run 3mm Matter Hackers Filaments and process using CURA
We have tried the following temp settings both with and without cooling fan.
---------Bed Temp------- Extruder
I have tried running various speeds and infills, but we typically use 20% infill and stock feed rates (They have given the best results).
Out of 20 ABS parts this week, 6 printed without a complete failure, and only 2 of those 6 were useable and not excessively warped. We have completely given up on PLA.
Where do we begin to make this printer operational?
