I received my Taz6 on August 15, 2016. The printer was unboxed and I ran the test print which came out just fine. I then started printing different items for the next 6 weeks without any issues. Then the other night an awful sound starting coming from the Z-Axis and the printer would not calibrate. I thought it may be a fluke, so tried again and the printer started right up. I went to check on my print after a few minutes and saw the
Z-Axis failed and drove the extruder into the heat bed. This caused a huge bubble right in the center of the heat bed. I contacted Lulzbot customer service via phone and spoke to a very rude gentleman. He informed me that the Z-Axis just need manually adjusted and it would be just fine and hung up. He could have cared less about the issue.
I then sent pics and videos to the Lulzbot tech email and after communicating back and forth they came to the conclusion that the heat sink has failed on the Z-Axis. Here is the exact text from his email stating that the heatsinks are faulty.
Text from service rep
"The reason being is that we've tested the cooling properties of the heatsink and found that it does not provide adequate cooling in the larger control box on the TAZ 6 (it was required in previous models but the TAZ 6 has much better cooling inside the control box) and actually traps heat, and secondly we've had a recent run of heatsinks with faulty adhesive making it a double-edged sword. We actually no longer install them in production of TAZ 6 for these reasons"
Since the heatsink failed this is causing the driver to go bad and let's not forget this printer in only 6 weeks old. Now, I have to ship the printer back. I bought this printer to start a business and things need to be printed for customers this week.
I would have thought Lulzbot would have their act together since this is there 6th rendition of the printer. Plus, at a price tag of $2,500 you would expect a higher standard of quality, not the quality of a cheap cloned knockoff.
Lastly, this is not a one-off incident. Other people have written reviews of the heatsink failing on the Z axis. I know my recommendation probably means nothing to anybody but I would strongly advise not to purchase from Lulzbot.
Only other thing I want to touch on is the support - you won't get better support with any other 3D printer company (at least in my experience)!
I must be honest.. The Taz6 was the best of four printers ($1500-$2500) range machines. Just wish they had better support for their product.
I did take an excellent 3 hour class on 3d printing at a makerspace in Columbus Ohio before my purchase. After that I printed 2 parts on the makerspace's RepRap printer. That was very helpful in getting me started.
I'm very happy with the printer thus far. Mostly I've printed with ABS and that has gone quite well. I've only had 2 or 3 truly failed parts, primarily because of failed bed adhesion. At the fastest speed (which is useful for prototyping) the quality isn't great but I can tweak my design as I go. I'm about ready to print a production part at highest quality.
Setting up the printer was surprisingly easy. I was prepared for it to take a couple of hours to install the bed, attach the cabling, etc. It took me at most an hour. The instructions were clear and well illustrated. However, after setting it up and running initial tests I noticed that during the bed leveling process at the beginning of each run, the print head was striking the side of the right front pad rather than floating over it and then tapping down on it. I deduced that the printer frame was out of square and when I looked closely I could see it was. I found very clear squaring instructions on the web site ( [...] ).
Since squaring the frame requires you to remove the print bed, my recommendation would be to check that the frame is square before you install the print bed right from the start. Checking is easy. You just take a tape measure and (following the instructions on the frame squaring page) measure the two diagnonals of the frame, front and back. They should be pretty much equal. Mine were not, they were more than 5/8" off. It took me an extra 45 minutes of tweaking with a hex wrench (supplied) and the tape measure to bring it within 1/16". Since then I don't have that problem with the print head striking the leveling pad.
I've only had one other problem with the printer so far and it was entirely self-generated. When downloading Cura profiles for your filament, be SURE to download the Taz 6 profiles and not the Taz 5 profiles. Things don't work well with the wrong profiles (DUH). Among other things, the Taz files don't contain code for bed leveling.
One other thing I've noticed... The bed temperature seems to drop off from the center to the edge of the bed. When I've printed an object close to the edge I've had adhesion problems. So now I'm printing centered on the bed each time.
I have also found the OctoPrint software running on a Raspberry pi really helpful. I'm running a job right now in the basement and watching live video of the run as I type this at my desk. I use Cura on the desktop to create a gcode file and then use Octoprint to upload it to the pi from which it runs. I don't need to mess around with a SD card or a dedicated PC.
Finally, my one contribution to the greater world of 3d printing. My wife's cake icing offset spatula turned out to be a fantastic tool for removing items from the bed. She wanted hers back so I bought my own. The Ateco spatula has a great thin blade. ( Ateco 4.25 by 0.75-Inch Small Sized Blade Ultra Spatula )Use another tool to gently loosen a corner and then begin to slide the spatula beneath the print. Works like a charm!
