Re: Converting a TAZ 5 single extruder for mini

I really wouldn't recommend using a TAZ 5 tool head on a Mini. The reason is that the tool head is a different dimension and the firmware won't differentiate the difference. Your printer will think that you have a Mini tool head and this can cause some potential physical damage to your printer. That...

Re: Z-offset question?

"With a decent set of feeler gauges, you can measure this gap as you lower the nozzle (the largest feeler gauge in the set may only be 0.9 to 0.8mm). If you don't have feeler gauges, a piece of 20lb paper is about .1mm, a business card about .3mm. Once you can measure the gap, you can compare the Z ...

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: 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...

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...

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 ...
