Hello, I just got a 2nd hand Taz 5 from a buddy of mine, but no background on it.
I’m having trouble getting either ABS or PLA to print. Both will jam up in the print head and require me to take it apart and manually remove the filament. While I’m getting good at that, I haven’t been able to get anything past a couple very small prints to work.
I’ve done the basic stuff like clean everything out, including the gear that feeds in the filament. I’ve read here and other places that these things have issues with heat creeping up the filament and that seems like it’s probably the issue. I’ve cobbled together another fan to help try and keep the area above the hot end cooler. It’s warm, but never too hot to touch.
Anyway, just wondering if there is something I am missing here or do I just need to try to cool things down more still? I’m using Luzbot ABS and eSUN PLA+
Thanks for any help
