I will have to see how soon I can remove the bed heat and/or how low I can go on the bed to reduce that effect.

Re: Homebuilt Lulzbot Mini

Biolumo,

Are you running Ninjaflex corners or are those from a 3rd party printer?

Re: Updates on Mini Issues?

Cheers, thanks! I was assuming the mechanical z-axis switch was part of the 'sanity check' process? Am I incorrect in this and its just strictly a firmware update? The added switch isn't required, just a firmware update! The mechanical switch on the TAZ 6 allows it to Z home at Z minimum, with a kn...

Re: Updates on Mini Issues?

I hear a lot of talk about not using wire brushes etc when cleaning the nozzles. I am not sure how I feel on this as I have been using my wire brush that I got with my mini the entire time I have owned it. I only use the wire brush when the print head hits 160 degree's before it probes its first wa...

Re: Bed Leveling

Before starting a print the Lulzbot Mini goes through an auto bed leveling. On my printer the auto alignment seems to have gotten offset. It finds the front corner just fine but then stops on the bed before reaching the next corner and touches the head to the bed itself instead of the round metal c...

Re: Updates on Mini Issues?

So I have read about a few issues with the Mini, namely the auto leveling not working as expected if nozzle is not clean. I have not see any update or differing information than what is posted already. I will be opening my mini tonight and as I get started with it, I figure I would check and leave ...

Re: How to Print 1.75 mm Filament with the LulzBot Mini

Best be watching that nozzle very closely before it does the bed probe! Get rid of any filament before it starts or it could grind into the washer(S).

Id recommend just swapping over to a 1.75mm hot end for anyone planning to run 1.75mm for a long period of time or permanently.

Re: Removing parts

Does anyone else having troubles removing parts after the bed is cooled? an tips or tricks to help part removal? As stated you can work with your first layer height on certain materials to basically reduce the grip of that filament to the print bed. Also, a good tool to remove prints is important. ...

Re: Help: Hot end nozzle popped off

E3D V6 nozzles do work. I actually prefer them because they are longer than the Hexagon nozzles and will tighten against the heat break rather than the heater block. They seal better that way and prevent the over tightening failure you just experienced. I have had no problems running them on my Taz...
