Re: Lulzbot Mini requires huge maintenance

The way I'm solving the dribbling problem is to carefully watch the warmup just before the print starts, and as the head is lowered to the print bed grab the dribble with tweezers.

I had this happen to mine a few years ago.

Easy to check the stepper and rule this out:

Re: The Backbrace project

Very cool!
Thanks for the pictures. Something just wasn't clicking in my head, but now I understand how it works.
I also have a few spare pieces of extrusion waiting for a new purpose.
