Re: Einsy Retro

It didnt have the bootloader so it wasn't going to work. Ultimachine was helpful in having me return it and sending it back programmed asap. Once the usb bootloader was there then it was easy to install the Lulzbot firmware. I was going to do that myself but since it should have came with firmware t...

Einsy Retro

Has anyone else purchased one of these from ultimachine? I'm having problems getting my laptop to be able to use it. The rambo worked fine but it seems the bootloader is missing and should have some firmware out of the box which doesnt seem to be the case. I just wanted to see if anyone else was hav...

Re: Software used to make Lulzbot printer parts

I think I found the answer Fusion 360. Someone can correct me if I'm wrong but the models created there seem to be very similar in detail.

Software used to make Lulzbot printer parts

I really like the precision in the stl files for the Lulzbot parts and doing this with Sketchup is just a disaster. I'm wondering what software is used to create these?

Re: TAZ 7 upper build question

I see there is going to be a metal TAZ 7 upper cover as the 3d printed definitely are too thin to withstand the belt tension. I think the lower Z should be modified in similar way to support the belt/bearing as it would be more open source friendly. If someone from Lulzbot can pass this along to Nic...

Re: TAZ 7 upper build question

I bought a TAZ 6 head on sale from Lulzbot and now realize the TAZ 7 holder has been completely redesigned so the 12mm bars are closer together so my TAZ 6 x carriage is not going to work. I either need to: 1) change the spacing between the Z axis to allow the TAZ 6 x carrier to work. 2) I need to r...

Re: TAZ 7 upper build question

The part that goes in there is a custom metal part. This is one of the things I'm trying to completely avoid so that I can easily build everything without complication other than the bed pieces. I'm wondering if I can't 3d print that and then have it withstand the constant tension. <insert engineeri...

Re: No one talking about Quiver and the switch to Titan Aero?

I noticed this thread after I started my TAZ 7 question. I started building a modified TAZ 6 as I preferred what Lulzbot did with the Mini2 in using belts for the z axis due to the cost of the lead screws being $165 a pair and just not something I want to use when building several in my workshop. Af...
