I have a Taz5 on which I’ve installed a Dual Extruder. I’m only using the rear extruder at the moment. It seems like the extruder is slowly degrading in terms of the temperatures it can reach. Last week, attempting to print polycarbonate at 290C, it wouldn’t go over 278C. Today, it’s maxing at 259. This problems seems to be exaggerated when printing from a card. The computer seems to bring it up to temp quicker and closer to the desired setting. Printing off the card, it takes forever to even get to 239C.
Does this seem like hardware? Could the way the software (Simplify3D) or hardware monitors the temperature be responsible?
I’m going to give the front extruder a try and see if the issue repeats with that tool.
