I got my Taz 4 about 2 weeks ago, since then I have only had 2 successful prints One issue I seem to be coming across is using supports or not.
I usually keep the head at 230 C and then bed at 87 C (seems to stick better). I am using ABS juice on the PET surface.
I have downloaded a few little skulls from Thingiverse and it would appear I need support, so I am exporting the G-Code with support. Slic3r does error out sometimes…not a fan of the software. Anyway, when I print with support, I only get about 10mm in height before the print goes bad. Some of the tiny supports just fall over or do not have any rigidity. Last night I tried to print the skull (saber toothed cat skull) http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:472463, without any support and it got much further…about 30mm in height and then went to shit (model detached from the surface and then printed 5 min worth of spaghetti).
So, using support I get nowhere, no support I get further but the model eventually breaks from the surface. What should I do…try a thicker coating of ABS juice? It’s frustrating not getting any results…well any finished results.
Thank you for any advice…
