That could potentially be an electrical conductivity issue. Did you use thread locker or anything non conductive on the washers, the nozzle ground wire, or the harness? I'd double check the wiring and assembly here: https://ohai.lulzbot.com/group/taz-6/

it's possible you are in the wrong Z endstop plug, or maybe the switch on the bed isn't detecting the low point of the bed properly?

In the control window do people get the same Eqn coefficients and planeNormal results everytime you print?

What power supply did you end up using? The one I purchased will not work without drilling more holes in the control box as they do not match the meanwell power supply screw holes.
I priced out a meanwell supply and might just purchase that even though they are not the cheapest it might just be the best solution moving forward.

Thanks!

This is fantastic, I was just looking into starting this project. Would you be willing to share your sources for the hardware? Rails, controller box, bed etc..? This is really really cool.

Also what is the overall price of your build?

Well done!

Hi guys haven't been on for awhile my apologies. TAZ 6 still going strong. Had some issues with the power supply (cheap copy) SD card reader not working properly, self leveling wasnt reliable so ending up buying a meanwell which seemed to solve all the above so dont skimp on this component if your building a TAZ 6.

I run a sheet metal workshop here in the UK so getting the sheet metal parts made was a bonus.

I've added WiFi, octoprint and some strength to the bed plate.

Thanks for the nice comments will add some pictures of finished machine soon. Happy to help anyone if needed.

I've also just started a Mini 2 build!
