Re: Mini 1 print issue warping/bad printing right rear

There are a couple of things that stand out in your post that I think you can fix rather easily in order to improve the quality of your prints. First, let's look at the enclosure. An enclosure is great for filaments, such as ABS, that suffer from contraction issues, warping on the bed, and layer sep...

Re: Don't get the same options on my laptop

Just an update. Our user was able to change his display from 125% to 100% and this fixed his problem.

Re: Warping ABS

Hello kdelaney, When we see warping with ABS it's usually indicative of the filament itself. ABS is notorious for warping because the upper portions of your print cool faster than the lower portions. The contraction that this causes pulls up the lower layers and, well, you see the results. There are...

Re: Looking for Socks

Hello InfiniteGinger, You can find the socks for your V3 Dual Extruder here: https://e3d-online.com/v6-silicone-socks-pack-of-3 You can give them a try, but we don't recommend using them. On printers with automatic bed leveling the wiping procedure tends to knock the sock loose. If you would like, w...

Re: Moarstruder & sock

Hello hounddog, LulzBot sells the MOARstruder hot end kit as the Longblock. But the actual components are Moarstruder components with a V6 Volcano nozzle. E3D is the manufacturer and they have a section for the Moarstruder here: https://e3d-online.com/lulzbot-moarstruder-spares-parts We don't recomm...

Re: Did I just kill my TAZ 6?

If you are needing to buy the fuses locally, the small white fuse holders are Little Fuse OMNI-BLOCK fuse holders. They are compatible with NANO2 Fuses. Fast or very fast acting are recommended. An example part number for replacement fuses is 0448005.MR

Re: Lulzbot Mini 1.4 with new SL Tool Head Question

Hi Mike, The Level X-Axis feature is only for the Mini 2. If you would like to level the X-axis on your Mini 1, you can do this manually. You'll want to raise your tool head toward the top of the frame. Using a ruler or tape measure you will want measure from the top smooth rod of the X-axis to the ...

Re: Eternal nozzle cleansing loop

Hey, I have some tips for you for solving your problems. In order to complete the bed leveling process the nozzle has to make a 5V connection with the washers. Otherwise, the process will fail. If the process fails on the left washer before rewiping, this usually indicates that the nozzle is dirty. ...

Re: next single extruder for TAZ 6

The stock extruder is definitely worth fixing. If I am understanding you correctly, it sounds like the extruder mount is broken. This is a pretty easy fix. You can either print out the part or purchase one from the store. The model can be found here: http://download.lulzbot.com/TAZ/6.03/production_p...

Re: Bed leveling issue

Hey Zchad, You can check to see if the board needs to be replaced. In order to do this, you center your bed, tool head, and Z-axis. You don't want anything touching an end stop. You'll then want to connect your printer via USB to your computer and open Cura. If you are using Cura 2.6.xx and above yo...
