Re: Apparent Z-Banding Driving Me Crazy

I get the exact same thing. If you get anywhere with this issue, please let us know. Randy Thanks for the response Randy. I'm thinking it is a bent Z-axis screw. I'll be sure to let you know if I ever get this resolved. Quite honestly, the reason I got the Lulzbot mini was so that I could have a pr...

Re: Apparent Z-Banding Driving Me Crazy

Turns out the original 3d printed parts that are part of my machine also show the same banding (example below). I wish Alephobjects would just admit this is a design flaw, refund my money and stop wasting my time.

Re: z-height moving in the wrong direction

Thank you Mike, I will certainly make sure I get that bugger plugged in when I put back together. I tested the fan with my fancy new bench top power supply and it works just fine so I'm gonna keep an eye on it once I receive them heat sink and get this mess all put back together. Also I appreciate ...

Re: z-height moving in the wrong direction

You should make sure your enclosure fan is plugged into the board properly, it is really easy to accidentally unplug it when working in the board enclosure/power supply area. "Step 19" of the below link shows where it should be plugged in case you aren't sure. https://matterhackers.dozuki.com/Guide/...

Apparent Z-Banding Driving Me Crazy

Is this amount of banding normal? It appears on all my parts and has ever since I got my machine. I even noticed that it is present on the 3d printed parts for the machine itself. It is really tough to photograph and it only really visible if there is a light source shining down on my parts from abo...

Lulzbot Mini Hot End Temperature Fluctuations at High Temperatures

I seems to be seeing some odd temperature fluctuations but only at higher temperatures (>240C). This occurs with the machine sitting still, the Hot End off and the part cooling fans off as well. It almost seems like the thermistor table is wrong, however, I checked the firmware and the correct profi...

Re: Marlin 1.1.8.59 On Original (not V2) Lulzbot Mini

There are two places to find Marlin firmware for LulzBot printers. The first contains the pre-compiled .hex files with a .config file for each that shows the configuration parameters that were used. The second is the GIT repository of the Marlin sources used to build the .hex files. To use it, you ...
