Temperature Tower

Is there a way to print a temperature tower using Cura and have the temperature set points automatically adjust with the height steps?

Re: lulzbot mini smashing the sensor washers, again.

I purchase my Mini used and not working. I repaired a broken wire and got it working but then the nozzle would hit the washers ver hard. After a while I realized that the nozzle was loose and gradually unscrewing. I tightened it when it was hot and that solved my problem. Sometimes I get buildup on ...

Re: Blown Einsy Retro on my Mini 2. Is there a better board to replace it with?

So I learned the hard way why not to clean your nozzle with a wire brush.. PSA for those that don't already know: The wire brush can cause the heater wire to short to the heater block sending high amperage intended for the heater to the low-amperage input meant for the probe trigger blowing the boa...

Re: Lulzbot Mini batteries

I agree. I would opt for a couple of 6V golf cart batteries in series and an inverter which is what RVs use typically.

Re: Converting a TAZ 5 single extruder for mini

What is a ‘flexistruder’ and how does it differ from a normal extruded?

Re: Converting a TAZ 5 single extruder for mini

I purchased my mini used and it came with a separate Taz printhead. Not sure why. The components seem to be the same as the mini printhead just mounted on a different backplate. Is this really not the case? Maybe there are hidden differences.

Re: Lulzbot Mini batteries

You could just go with a hardware store inverter which runs off the cigar lighter. I have a 600 watt one the you can just plug the printer into it. May need to keep the vehicle running though to prevent its battery running down.

Re: Lulzbot parts

Thanks, I was hoping to find out that at least some of the parts are useable on my Mini. It's funny because along with the 2 print heads was a box that said flexistruder. I guess it was just an orphan box haha I'm thinking that as long as the heater and thermistor both have continuity, and the motor...

Re: Lulzbot parts

Thanks. The print head on it when I got the printer has what looks to be the exact same thing as the one with the yellow/green gear. Both have 0.5mm nozzles.
