Re: Mini 2 Marline Firmware Download?

Do a forum search on "git", that is how/what you will 'clone' the files/directories you need from there. I use the smartgit program myself.

It is probably a flaky Digipot in the motor driver chip.

Re: Lulzbot Mini startup/auto-level fail - around probe points

If you decide to change it out yourself, make sure you flash the firmware. It will probably have Ultimachine firmware that will give 'strange' operation if you try to move the motors.

Re: Structural Layer Weakness Halfway Through

You have a slight vertical angle in relation to the other. They are slowly tilting away from each other. If you look you will see 2 layers on the outside becoming three layers, indicating a slowly widening distance between them.

Re: Raspberry Pi Camera/Print Monitor Setup?

I have found it VERY helpful to be able to kill prints that have gone VERY WRONG remotely. :oops: Plus the first week I had Windows 10 it rebooted in the middle of a 3 day long print! :evil: RPI control ever since.

I wonder why the errors dont bother S3D?
They did mine, It showed sides/sections of the model disappearing as I rotated around the STL model. If you need to use 0% infill it is 'bothering' it.

Re: Missing structures in Cura 3.2.21

The model has mesh errors! So it tries to "fix" it by making it a solid model with no internal structures, but now valid external faces. Meshlab shows ~21 errors in the model.

Re: extruder green gears

I believe I have seen postings of others who have done that. I have myself printed out a whole body in Poly-carbonate that I still am using.

Re: Lulzbot Mini 2 hot end?

Internal wear = extrusion issues as the bore gets larger from abrasion of the filament being pushed through it. (filled filaments tend to wear out the bore faster.)

Re: Mini Bed Probe Failure

If you do not measure a short between the nozzle tip and the screw on the heat block you have an issue right there.
