Re: Mini 2 with OctoPrint?

Thanks for the info. I was hoping to hear from someone who has the Mini 2 with OctoPrint running. Wanted to better understand if there are impacts because of the stock LCD it comes with, or if there are other issues. I currently have a Mini 1 with OctoPrint and use Sli3er to slice and send to it, so...

Mini 2 with OctoPrint?

I've currently got a Mini with this setup and thinking of selling mine for the new and improved, but I'd like OctoPrint to remotely manage prints from my tablet / computers. Has anyone setup a Mini 2 with OctoPrint?

Re: How To: TFT LCD with TouchUI on Raspberry Pi OctoPi Rig

Thx. Good idea re power. However, I use a separate power supply. That said, I think it would be pretty easy to find a 5V rail.

Mini Fan Shroud Mod

I was thinking of trying to mod the Aerostruder fan shroud on my stock Mini. Before I venture down that avenue, has anyone already made a modified one they want to share? (STL)? It may be too much to modify and rather a new design is necessary... I've seen others that use dual fans etc, but I'd like...

How To: TFT LCD with TouchUI on Raspberry Pi OctoPi Rig

After 3 painful days... I got TouchUI working on my Lulzbot Mini with OctoPi. If anyone is interested in doing this, you can add a TFT for $21 (CAD) to your Pi and get TouchUi running. Here's my write-up.

Vinyl Cutting with LulzBot

I have a Mini and vinyl cutter attachment. Wondering if anyone here has managed to cut vinyl with their LulzBot machine? If so, can you share your experience? I can whip up an attachment, but wondering what software I can use and any tricks to get the z height correct and how to get the right g-code...

Re: PLA from Filaments.ca

Not sure where you live in Canada, but I get my PLA from Sayal. They sell the MG Chemicals branded stuff. Very happy with it. I print at 205c and always get good prints (black, orange, purple). They have lots of stores in GTA..
