Additional Heating Resistors in TAZ4 and TAZ5

Post by harshabharadwaj » Fri Jul 12, 2019 11:14 am

Hello,

My name is Harsha and I have TAZ4 and TAZ5 at the lab where I work. Since, I wanted more heat, I was thinking of adding an additional heater resistor near the nozzle, so as to keep the filament more warm and liquidy. I wanted to ask how this was gonna affect the printer? Will the software support this change? Or will I have to change the entire setup altogether?

Please, do get back to me about this. Your help will be much appreciated.

Best Regards,
Harsha Bharadwaj

You can get a higher wattage heating element that will heat quicker or replace with a long heater block, similar to e3d volcano.
