upgrade taz6 extruder stepper

Does anyone know of an easily available stepper motor upgrade for the default extruder? By upgrade I mean a smaller/lighter unit with approx the same force, haven't been able to find any online with cursory googling... This is the default one: https://www.lulzbot.com/store/parts/nema-17-stepper-moto...

Added recovery to PauseAtHeightOrLayer plugin

I had a largish multi-color project and faced a number of difficulties and bugs in the existing plugin, like multiple instances not working, the print not continuing, temperature resuming incorrectly, 'redo last layers' not working etc... as part of figuring out GCode and what was happening (mostly ...

Re: Can you adjust the bed on Taz 6?

Look at David's reply in this thread for instructions on how to level the two z sides: https://forum.lulzbot.com/viewtopic.php?t=5436 Once the bed is approximately level, the auto-level probing feature will take care of the rest. If the bed is visibly not level, something is not right with the y-axi...

Re: Lulzbot Mini 2 TPU Filament

This link shows how to work with 1.7mm filament, even though the printer is technically not designed for it: https://www.lulzbot.com/learn/tutorials/tips-and-tricks-printing-175mm-filament There are hundreds of materials available, most will not be in the profiles, just some common ones. The manufac...

Re: MINI 2: Z height issue with varying XY for new machine

I found this post that confirms that the MINI2 (and likely all other Z-belt printers) suffer from this problem... and the fix is likely insufficient, given my results.

Re: MINI 2: Z height issue with varying XY for new machine

Life interfered, but I'm back to debugging this... I did the calibration test you asked for, the results are here: https://imgur.com/a/7UcdtuE I even did it on another Lulzbot Mini 2... which has the same issue as mine, except slightly less pronounced on the top-left side. This is in the second imag...

Re: MINI 2: Z height issue with varying XY for new machine

So Lulzbot, no other suggestions? I'm not sure I understand backlash in the first place to even know what to try to fix... is the difference in Z over XY caused by proximity to one or the other Z belts? Would tightening them to identical tension help? Is this issue occurring on some individual machi...

Re: MINI 2: Z height issue with varying XY for new machine

I upgraded to Cura 3.2.24 deleting the profile directory, upgraded the firmware (restoring z-offset, extruder steps didn't change), readded the printer (did not usb connect) and tried the same test from before - 25 squares at .25mm standard defaults and here are the results: https://imgur.com/a/v9pN...
