I have been beating my head against the wall for some time now trying to achieve the same print quality from my TAZ 6 as I do from my Ultimaker 2+ and I’m hoping to find folks out there with experience using both of these printers to set me straight. There are a number of issues I’m dealing with but I’ll only be discussing one in this post.
The two pictures attached illustrate the difference I am seeing when printing the same stl on each printer. The shape is essentially a bowl and the poor quality appears all the way around the lower (overhanging) portion when printed on the Taz 6.
Here are the constants:
Ultimaker - 0.6mm dia nozzle / Cura Ultimaker 15.04.6
Taz 6 - 0.5mm dia nozzle / Cura Lulzbot 20.01
I have experimented with varying parameters across the board when printing on the Taz 6 (ext. temp, layer height, shell thickness, infill, feed rate, print speed, etc) and multiple 3mm materials (MatterHackers PLA, Ultimaker PLA, eSUN PLA, Colorfabb nGen). Nothing I have done has corrected the issue. The Ultimaker however will print it near perfectly within a broad range of parameters using any of these materials.
Does anyone know what might be the problem? Could it be the slicing software?
