We just got two Mini 2’s and I’m testing them out before unleashing them to the public and I have a few questions. The Minis will be replacing a couple of Taz 5’s, so I have experience with replacing parts and working on somethings but the Mini is quite a bit different.
Homing: When homing one of the Minis it fails while homing X. The toolhead will travel to the left and shudder a bit and sometimes home successfully and sometimes fail. I didn’t realize there wasn’t an endstop so I assume it’s done in the firmware. Is there a way to adjust how X homes? I can get it to home successfully if I help push it a bit while it’s struggling to home X.
Modular bed: We only print in PLA but parts are sticking too well to the PEI bed. Does the modular bed PEI require some preparation to allow prints to release easier? I’ve never had to use glue stick on our Taz 5’s PEI bed but I’m willing to try if it will allow prints to release easier.
Replacement parts/improvements: Are there any parts I should print out now for backups? Any parts that I should keep on hand when they fail? -I’m debating just buying a toolhead to keep for emergencies. The Mini 2 is pretty new but are there any improvements I could make to make printing easier/faster? We had a .8 ruby tip nozzle on the Taz 5 I wanted to use and then remembered ruby won’t conduct electricity…
Thanks for any feedback you might have!
