I used to call my Taz 6 “da Beast,” because you could always hear it roaring several rooms away before seeing it. But seeing a few posts here about upgrading the Mini’s board from the Rambo-mini to the Einsy Retro got me thinking – why not?
So I bought one of those boards last week, pulled the latest Lulzbot Marlin and installed the retro on my Taz 6 this weekend. It took me most of the weekend, mostly modeling the new mounts and jig to drill for the reset button while thinking about which connections I really needed if dual extrusion through 2 nozzles was really something that I wanted to do.
I’m still using the home button, the automatic bed leveling that comes with the Taz 6, and can connect to it with Cura. But ended up going with senseless homing for XY instead and am trying out the lightweight UI that comes on the mini - I think I like it.
Now my biggest problem is the fan on the PSU, from a distance, it’s the only thing you can hear anymore.
Thanks AO for being open source, it made this mod easy!
