Re: Optical Sensor Probe Project

This is awesome! Nice work! I'm curious though how the toolhead moves rapidly towards home and nicely slows down before hitting the endstop, I've never seen that behavior before.

Re: Luzbot 5 Single, printing in squiggles

What hotend did you change it to? If you bought a lulzbot brand hotend you can update the firmware in cura lulzbot edition to the correct one.

Re: Odd Manual Stepper Movement after Marlin 1.1.6+

Have you considered trying the new version of marlin 2.0? https://github.com/SBachman/BLTouch-Taz-5 is a good place to start as he has bed leveling enabled, also recommend enabling z babystepping - it's been super handy on my taz 5 with BLTouch.

Re: Really bad Z Wobble in X axis

Figured it out, wasn't something I expected.. must have tightened the smooth rods on the x carriage while it was higher up, when I loosened the grub screws it released some pressure against it so I should have leveled before tightening the screws. I feel silly but glad it was a simple fix

Re: Calibrate my mini 2?

Looks like your X gantry might have gotten out of level. Check both sides with a ruler

Re: Modular Print Bed Issues

Thanks, unfortunately due to my enclosure design binder clips will just knock the door open. Read some other related threads and someone mentioned using the Quiver designed bed corners for a taz 6, I'm in the process of adapting them to the taz 5 style bed corners. Going to print and test if they wo...

Re: Really bad Z Wobble in X axis

The shifting only happens in the X axis. I recently did some maintenance to try and remedy the issue which included taking the bed assembly apart, changing belts, anything I could think of and still it happens identically on every print. I also printed the strengthened extruder assembly, changed igu...

Modular Print Bed Issues

I recently purchased the modular print bed as it's nice to switch to glass for TPU and be able to remove the glass for cleaning. The first of my issues was the bed corners that lulzbot recommends to print for the different thickness of the modular bed, they have too much space to where the glass pla...
