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.

Re: Mini leveling not hitting second washer.

I had this happen to mine a few years ago.

Easy to check the stepper and rule this out:
