Re: Birth of new Taz 6 clone

It's a mini clue.

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.

Re: heat creep

From the photo I'm assuming this is a Taz 6 with the single extruder. I have that configuration and have never had heat creep issues with E-Sun PLA+ pla (I use the polymaker PLA default settings in Cura). Actually I've had very few heat creep issues ever with this printer and extruder. Much more com...

Re: Unknown situation during print

That looks like the photo from this topic: https://forum.lulzbot.com/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=7597&p=41762&hilit=wavy+first+layer#p41762 I had a similar issue on my mini, but I ended up not needing to adjust the offset as described in the above topic. For me, the solution was to really clean both the no...

Re: Lulzbot Mini requires huge maintenance

My mini is an early 1.03 unit. I would say it's been fairly reliable.
Like everyone says:
-The early heat sink cooling was very inadequate.
-It's noisy.

Re: Print fail. Need help

I'm not a great troubleshooter, but if this is PLA, you might try printing on a raft and lowering bed heater temp. It might be as simple as too much heat on the extrusion close to the bed.

Re: New Aerostruder Micro tool head?

I ordered one, and the adapter.

Follow-up question: If I were to get a Mini 2, could I use the Mini 2's aerostruder with the Mini 1/adapter combo?
