Hi… ive just brought a Taz4 and getting use to it printing a number of taz parts to get use to it… Im using ABS @ 230 Nozzel & the bed set at 80… It all worked fine with all expected problems setting it up from info off this group helped me sort it out with sticking but thats seams to be ok now and dont have any issues as such printing the taz stuff out…
Anyhow… during the following week i has issues with the printer, first the bed was going upto temp quite fast and a couple of degrees before the target temp the heating would slow down to an almost stop, The Taz4 just displayed Bed Heating for maybe half an hour before printing? maybe on the next print it would start straight away as soon as it gets up to temp??
This has been intermittent over the last few days of testing…
To add to the problem now the printer sometimes locks up half way through a print, Just over an hour into a print? its done it a number of times and after restarting the printer and computer it works for a bit and does the same again… After cleaning the bed and setting up again after this happens its starting to be an issue with trying it again on a small print first without problems and then doing a larger print after this and failing again.
I have gone to the length of using another pc running Windows 7 and the problem started again after a couple of small prints?
I have also printed direct from the SD card to rule out issues with the PC… i have use different Gcodes also?
Ive been printing from printrun and also the sd card. I will give any more info need to help sort this out?
I have checked all the connections and all those are fine… ive gone over the printer a number of times also for loose connections what would be causing any issues?
Many thanks Dean
