Re: Mini 1 keeps stopping with a failed wipe message

So I did some experiments and found that indeed that the problem is due to the PLA filament oozing out of the nozzle after the wipe process. To try to stop the ooze, I did my first cold pull (extrude filament at normal print temperature then turn off the heat and wait for the hot end to get to 90C t...

Re: Mini 1 keeps stopping with a failed wipe message

I am having the same issue with my 3 year old printer. Sometimes it works but lately it fails 90% of the time. I checked the wiring to the controller board and all is well. I also used the M119 command while shorting the print head to a washer and it responds with Triggered for Z-min so it seems tha...

Re: Is it safe to upgrade to Cura Lulzbot Edition 3.2.27?

I skipped the upgrade at first and downloaded Slic3r PE and Ultimaker Cura 3.6. I manually added my Mini and hacked the startup G-code, and a crap load of settings to pretty much match what was coming out of my old Cura. The end result works with the old and new firmware and gives me access to lots ...

Is it safe to upgrade to Cura Lulzbot Edition 3.2.27?

I keep seeing threads in the Software section that the latest Cura runs slow or just does not work but nobody says it works fine for them. I noticed on the downloads page that it is recommended as an upgrade but it requires new firmware so it does not sound like going back is easy. I've been burned ...

Re: Skirt doesn't start printing until most of the way round

Some smart person (I don't recall who) told me the secret in Cura last year. Click the ... button after the Platform adhesion type in the Support section (on the Basic tab), then set Line count to 2 so you spew more filament before starting the real print. I was having problems with my small parts m...

Re: Print stopping

All the cool kids use a Raspberry Pi so that they can remotely control and monitor the printer. It will set you back about $40 to $50 (Pi + Power Supply + SD card). You can also add a USB camera for about $15 so you can watch the action while watching TV! Here are some words: https://forum.lulzbot.c...

Any guide on converting the Mini Tool Head V2 to V2.1?

From the pictures it looks like the changes are the bigger idler arm and a bigger fan on the heat insulator. I'm not sure which parts of the CAD files to print out but I have not looked that deep into it. I have questions: Are there other differences between V2 and V2.1? Does anyone have some before...

Re: mods for mini

Below are pictures of my very cheap "mod". I wait a day after I print and then put a hefty garbage bag over the printer to keep dust off of it. I take the filament off the arm and put it in the bag it came with along with the descant pack and set it on top of the printer inside the garbage bag. It d...

Re: Calibration and first layer problem

I think the misplaced [...] button behind "Platform adhesion type" dropdown does exactly what you want. These are the "skirt" settings and you can choose the number of loops (line count) or minimal skirt length (mm) and start distance, but that's not your problem. Thanks. I've been away from the fo...
