Hope someone can help me hear, I went to fit the Modular Bed to my TAZ 6, thought this would be a strait swap, when I tighten the 16mm washers down they don't lay flat?? because the heater plate sits in the print corners im 1 mm higher,, when I look at my Stand off they measure 10mm,, when I loof at

they quote 11mm any thoughts on this?? I did contact Tech but they seem to not understand my problem..

Any Help appreciated..

Checking my Taz 6 it measures 10 MM to the top of the modular bed glass plate. I had a problem at first with the washers not sitting flat, but on second attempt they worked fine.

YMMV....

Thanks for the reply I will have another go I re measured everything and the plates are the same thickness the difference is in the heater plate this adds another 1mm to the height of the plate as this sits into the corners of the printed bed supports...


Ill try and re fit if not ill make 11mm pillars



Thanks

That's interesting... maybe they "fixed" the system with a thicker steel plate...

Don't get to excited I think the steel sheet is the same 1.0mm the plate is the same as the std plate (thickness)

I had the same issue. Here's a video that I made.

I sent the video to Aleph Objects and here was the reply:

"The small slant you are seeing in the washers is within an acceptable range compared to what we see on the modular beds that we use in the office. The printer is able to compensate for that with the auto leveling. The distance is not usually too great that it affects the z-offset, but there is a possibility."

They also offered for me to return the unit. It surprised me that this was within the acceptable range compared to what they use in the office.

Make sure the edges of the heating pad is not catching on the flex corners, the picture I looked, at the metal plate is sitting about 1MM higher than it should be in the corner pocket. You may need to loosen the two screws on them and adjust the corners out slightly to get the metal plate to sit better between.

You are Absolutely spot on, Yes that is exactly my issue, if Lulzbot are looking at this post they should sort this, They do themselves NO credit, supplying this, I moved from a Printer with dodgy heritage (Chinese) in the parts department,,, I purchased the Taz because I thought with it being American it would be done right, Grossly disappointed.


I have a Lathe I will make 11mm stand offs (Cylindrical Spacers) I would like to know why they list this in the file suppository (11mm) stand offs.


Thank you for taking the time in uploading the video I thought I was being stupid, but the maths don't lie,,, Thanks


And as this is so crucial to get a good level bed level Wonky Washers DONT Cut the mustard :oops:

Fix it Lulzbot
