Re: Should I lube my Mini?

Interesting. Both my lulzbots will make sea lion-type sounds under just the right conditions.

Re: problem printing

I'm not an expert but my best guess is that the nozzle is jamming as a result of being too close to the bed when it lays down the first layer. This would also explain why printing on a raft could sometimes work. Check out section 2 here: https://ohai.lulzbot.com/project/z-axis-offset-adjustment-Lulz...

Re: Quality on Mini 1 with SL .25 toolhead

Here's the final outcome: It turned out the factory had put a .5mm nozzle on the .25 toolhead by mistake. I didn't know that at the time since it never occurred to me. They shipped my printer/toolhead back with the .25 nozzle and I tested it last night, and it now seems to be printing just fine at ....

Re: SL .25 Micro printerhead, proper tension?

I just got my printer back last night from Lulzbot support with the .25 toolhead and had the exact same issue. The tension screw was super tight and when I heated the toolhead, tried to extrude 5mm of the lulzbot green PLA they left in the hotend for shipping it quickly ground the filament to powder...

Mini 1 and 2.5mm SL tool head - GCODE Test available?

I'm wondering if anyone has had good luck printing using the new Aerostruder Micro with the Mini 1. In particular, the .05mm layer setting. I can't do it no matter what I try, and in all 3 preset layer heights, the prints seem way more brittle at the layers. I did find some unopened Polylite PLA, wh...

Re: Quality on Mini 1 with SL .25 toolhead

The poorer of the two .05 benchy figures was without a raft, as was the normal sized .2mm benchy. All were printed with the sample filament included with the tool head. I don't have any more lulzbot green polymaker filament now. I do have some translucent polymaker pla I could try - I'm not sure how...

Quality on Mini 1 with SL .25 toolhead

I've fitted a Mini 1 (1.03 I think) with the new Aerostruder Micro SL toolhead. I'm playing around with settings, but using the default settings dialed into CURA already, I was unable to print until adjusting Z height to -1.36 (from -1.25 which is how I got the printer) Using the default standard .2...

Re: New Aerostruder Micro tool head?

Good to know. I asked because the cyber Monday discounts continued through Tuesday so I thought I'd grab one if this idea could work. I see its too late now, but it's good info in case the mini 2 ever goes on sale again.
