Is this normal?

I just received a Lulzbot mini on saturday. I'm not sure if this suppose to be this loud or not. It sounds like it's about to vibrate itself apart. I don't get anywhere near as much noise from my Taz 5. I Just need to know if this is something that I should be concerned about and return it for a new...

Re: How long should the pei sheet last?

Thanks for the replies. I'm at a level now where I leveled the bed corners first with a digital indicator and then set the z end stop. My bed is pretty much perfect as far as the level goes and if I drop the hotend even a hair more, I start to get artifacts in the print that looks like the nozzle is...

Re: A good way to remove prints off the bed

So then how are you guys cleaning your pei bed sheets? I had read that isopropyl alcohol 70% and diluted with water was perfect to clean the sheet. Is that why my sheet is losing it's stickiness?

How long should the pei sheet last?

Well, I too am experiencing the bubbling of my pei sheet on the Taz 5. The printer is about 3 months old and I have a few hundred hours of printing on it. I have only used hips and have always had a problem with the hips warping on longer prints. I started using a 20 line brim to counteract this and...

Wow

This thing is loud. It's way louder than my Taz 5. Is it supposed to be this loud? It's really almost a deal breaker. I have had my Taz since February and it's still in the room with no enclosure. The noise of the Taz doesn't even bother me. I often watch movies while my prints are printing. The min...

Re: Head clean process sometimes ejects filament

I just got my mini today, but I have had a Taz 5 since February. So I have just a little bit of experience with these printers. With my Taz 5 what would happen sometimes was I noticed the skirt wasn't printing anymore before the print. It would go through the motions of the skirt, but no filament wo...

Dual exteuder/flexydually questions

I have been thinking about printing out a dual extruder and using 2 hexagon hotends. Or either a flexystruder dually. But my question is , how to wire it if I don't buy it from AO. Do I have to buy the pieces to make the wiring harness be able to plug into the empty jack. Or could I wire straight to...

Re: Why is leveling so difficult?

Thanks for the suggestion on the mini. Looks like I'll be ordering one tonight. With amazon, I should have it by Saturday. I hope you get your leveling situation worked out with your Taz 5. Once it's calibrated this machine cranks out some really good looking prints.

Re: Why is leveling so difficult?

Do a forum search for leveling using a digital indicator. Then use your mini to print one of the holders for the indicator and level the bed that way. Since I leveled about a month or so ago with the indicator, I havent had to adjust it at all. I don't move my printer around so ymmv. Completely off ...
