I clogged the hot end of the mini with some cheap flexible filament and in an attempt to unclog it I got a toothpick stuck all the way up to the nozzle (I’m not a very smart man).
I ordered a new hot end from Lulzbot, though I know they say it’s not a direct replacement because you have to change some wires on the connector I was able to follow the directions that I found here (https://ohai.lulzbot.com/project/replacing-lulzbot-mini-hexagon-hot-end/maintenance-repairs/) and I thought it went pretty well. I mount the head back on to the Mini, feed some ABS into it and it extrudes like a champ. I decide to print a calibration cube to test it out and that’s when it all goes wrong.
During the print process the print head never moved along the Z axis so I stop the print and I try to use the controls in Cura to move it manually to no avail. I then start to test all the other controls and some work but others don’t.
I’m new to 3d printing so I didn’t know exactly what to try so here’s what I’ve done to try and troubleshoot it.
Flashed Default firmware with Cura: no change
Flashed New firmware with Cura: no change
Checked all the pins using this diagram (https://ohai.lulzbot.com/media/uploads/Wire_Diagram_1_1.png.600x0_q85.png): no change
If anyone can point me in some direction that would allow to figure this out I would greatly appreciate it.
