Re: Mini Bed Probe Failure

Check your z axis leadscrews. Its possible that the x axis is misaligned because one side is higher up than the other. Rotate one leadscrew until its even with the other one.

Re: Objects stuck too well - broken bed

Here are some tricks I use. You don't even need any tools. PLA: after the print is done heat up the bed to say 70-80. Then turn the machine off and let it cool. Eventually the PLA will just pop off on its own. ABS: pour a small amount of alcohol between the skirt and the part or any holes or gaps (t...

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

Pretty neat. I'm about to do something similar but maybe with the 7 inch pi touch screen. Wanted to know how you did your wiring. Is there a way to power the raspberry pi with the lulzbot power supply or do you have two plugs going into your wall (one for the pi and one for the lulzbot)? Thanks for ...

Is it safe to leave a lulzbot printer near a window with direct sunlight?

Hello everyone. Lulzbot printers are made of 3D printed parts. I'm assuming that they are ABS plastic.
Is it safe to leave the printer that gets exposure to direct sunlight?
I heard ABS plastic has problems in sunlight.
Thanks.

Re: Damper for x-end-motor

I designed it but I never had the time to actually test it. It should have the proper clearance for everything including the tiny screw extrusion in the frame. I've been quite busy so I left the project as is, but if you would like to test it out, and make modifications here are the attached files.

Re: Replacing the hobbed bolt

https://ohai.lulzbot.com/project/mini-104-extruder-assembly/mini-v104/ Check step 12 of OHAI for assembling the toolhead. After you remove the nut at the end, you can just slide it out of the bearings and washers. You should be able to slide it out of the large green gear easily. If it's a little st...

DIY LCD for Lulzbot Mini

I didnt want to necro an old thread. I was looking at the LCDs from reprapdiscount and I was wondering if they would work with the lulzbot mini. Aside from having to print my own enclosure/mount, is there anything special I need to do about the firmware or electronic connections?

Re: New releases

I personally dig through the devel files to see what the devs are up to. TAZ 7 and Lulzbot Mini 2 seems to both be using the new E3D Aero extruder. This tells me that AO hexagon hotend may be getting phased out. One of the biggest change I noticed is Z axis is belt driven and there are now two verti...
