As of 6/3/2015 nozzle unclogged, tested with ABS. --Rdoeksen (talk) 19:22, 3 June 2015 (CDT)

As of 6/1/2015 clogged with PLA through the length of the hot end and nozzle. Needs to be disassembled, burned out, nozzle cleaned. Probably needs replacement nozzle. Needs replacement parts for the hot end (wood discs, maybe aluminum disk) --Rdoeksen (talk) 18:53, 1 June 2015 (CDT)

As of 5/20/2015 not clogged, running normally.

Seems to be extruding fine as of 4/30/2015. [Extruder nozzle clogged. Needs unclogging or nozzle replacement. (As of 4/28/2015, clogged )]

SD card reader DOES NOT WORK. Works only in tethered mode, driven by USB from a computer.

Spool hanging bolt on enclosure sure could use an upgrade. It is long enough but there is no positive catch to keep the spool in place.


  • Turn the printer off when you are no longer using it.


Factory standard settings, accessories and equipment. Alternate Flexistruder available at PS1 but not installed.

Windows Drivers

Windows users driving the printer tethered (over a USB cable) will need to install drivers.

Suggested Settings

Both of these files have appropriate settings for the 'printer settings' and 'filament settings' tabs. To use them, go to File > Load Config in Slic3r and select the downloaded file. You must then go to each tab and hit the 'save' icon next to the settings selection dropdown box, or else Slic3r will forget the settings when you close it.

ABS Print Settings Without Support - Fast

File:Taz3 print settings NO SUPPORT.ini

This file is for the 'print settings' tab of Slic3r. This is a 'fast' profile, geared towards finishing prints relatively quickly. It still provides excellent surface quality. This profile does not include support, so for large overhangs you'll need the next configuration file.

ABS Print Settings With Support - Fast

File:Taz3 print settings SUPPORT.ini

This file is for 'print settings' tab of Slic3r. This is a 'fast' profile, geared towards finishing prints relatively quickly. It still provides excellent surface quality. This profile includes support, appropriate for large overhangs.

Other Resources

The manual is available online. A printed form of it can be found near the printer. The manual explains how to operate the printer.


The extruder usually mounted accepts 3 mm filament, and can print either ABS or PLA. There is an alternate extruder for use with Ninjaflex.
