Member Reports

  • Kevin: I continue to struggle with the TAZ 1.0 and am beginning to believe that there is a hardware failure. The system consistently fails to recognize where the home position of the Z axis is, and grinds the extruder into the bed. However, I've considerably shrunk the distance for moving the Z axis AWAY from the bed. Telling the TAZ to move the Z axis up 1 mm is now much closer to 1 mm instead of 100 mm.

[Karen note]Julia may be coming to visit DC soon, so perhaps she can take a peek.
