Re: Calibration and first layer problem

I think the misplaced [...] button behind "Platform adhesion type" dropdown does exactly what you want. These are the "skirt" settings and you can choose the number of loops (line count) or minimal skirt length (mm) and start distance, but that's not your problem.

Re: Threaded inserts in Europe?

For those in search of the same problem, I ordered with this shop on AliExpress. Hope they're compatible enough to fit the standard cavities of the parts.

Re: 8mm linear bushings outer diameter?

This is scary. Were you reading my mind? I had just opened a FreeCAD project with original parts loaded, wondering where to start the mod!
Just one word: AWEsome!

Thank you!

Re: 8mm linear bushings outer diameter?

No, I got the RJ4JP-01-08 LM8UU. Guess I should have done some homework before ordering :?
So, the 16 OD is correct, the parts are wrong. Thx for the clarification.

8mm linear bushings outer diameter?

I just ordered a spare set of IGUS Drylin linear bushings for my mini and printed the x carriage as a spare part. But to my surprise, the bushings holder in the carriage seems to be 16mm, where as my bushings have an outer diameter of 15mm. A quick search reveals that most (all?) LM8uu compatible bu...

Flat surface pattern

On my two months old Mini I see a Z-axis patterns as seen in the attachment. It looks like the Z-axis suffers a different offset depending on the direction of the extrusion, caused by drag? Also, the little holes seem to be more almond-shaped than round. Any ideas where to start looking for tighteni...

Re: Missing layers after pause

If this is a manual pause and resume I don't know exactly how to help. If you want to encode the pause in gcode however I shamelessly plug my "pause at Layer plugin" for Cura: https://forum.lulzbot.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=5220 It has code for slower print, less fan and more extrusion on resume layer...

Re: HIPS versus PETG with a Lulzbot TAZ5

I've been experimenting with PETG as well and like it for the shiny finish. Also, the strength does seem to compete with ABS indeed. I've bought some reels from http://www.real-filament.com/ and they communicate conflicting temperatures. The box says anywhere between 190-245, the site says 230-250. ...
