I have a Lulzbot Mini2 and Lulzbot Taz Pro that I’ve been using extensively.
The Mini 2 has been incredibly reliable. The Taz Pro has been so-so (had to disable filament runout detection, had first layer unevenness problems that mostly fixed after using a more solid-flat table and adding shims to the circular-spacers, had thermistor errors 1yr in that fixed itself after 1 month of using the 2nd extruder somehow, recently stopped extruding at all during a print but extrudes manually ok but weird! and had to simplify the start-up code and that fixed it for now somehow!).
One problem I’ve never addressed is how difficult it is to take some prints off the bed. I would have to apply so much force I lift the printers… and for a recent print it STILL wouldn’t come off and I applied so much force it cracked the corner of the PEI/glass bedplate of the Mini2.
I needed to buy a replacement bed and behold I notice the Flex Bed Upgrade Kit, released a week ago (what a coincidence). I have been so mad at the print removal process I buy the kit for both the Mini2 and the TazPro.
I am 10 prints into using these flex beds and they are EXCELLENT. I remove parts in seconds! Before it was minutes of hurting myself and worrying about breaking/overbending something! The bed magnets are a lot more powerful than I expected! (definitely read the user’s manual first and be careful with the installation, you’ll pinch your fingers otherwise)
Only other special UX is, I see little whitish dots forming where the print skirt goes around. So far so great though. I’ll definitely chime back if there’s an issue. Tentatively recommended for anyone having the same frustration with print removal!
