Please note all extra steps for wiring here if the integration for your 3D printer is more involved.


Describe any firmware changes necessary for the integration process. This could include settings like disabling the cold extrusion code, adjusting the EEPROM settings for the Discov3ry (typically ~10-100x default settings), hard coding XYZ offsets for a new nozzle, etc.

What are the ideal slicer parameters that you have found for a specific material? Layer height, speed, infill, etc. Please share a configuration file that you have successfully utilized, preferably using the slicer that is applicable to your 3D printer.

Do you have detailed description as to how to connect a Discov3ry with Lulzbot Taz 6? There doesn’t seem to be much information here.

Hi visheshvikas,

A few of our customers have successfully integrated the Discov3ry with the Taz, and the one particular detail they have told me is that you need to update the firmware to comment out the temperature failsafe variable (MIN_TEMP) for the nozzle. Otherwise, the Discov3ry won’t work, since the printer will forever be waiting for the nozzle to heat up (and the Discov3ry doesn’t have heating capability). Outside of that detail, I think the rest of the integration should be fairly straightforward, since the Taz is open source.


Anyone using Discov3ry with LulzBot Taz care to describe how they integrated it? I can probably figure it, but I figured it’s worthwhile asking first.
