Your Y axis Idler and Y Axis motor mount should be good to reuse, along with the bed corners and wiper mount. Aside from those, you are going to need to re-print all of the Z and X axis components to take advantage of the new build volume.
Any idea when standalone Mini 2 parts might be available to buy? I've got a Mini 1 I'd like to upgrade too, and obviously will need the einsy, build platte/bed, power supply etc.

I've done the same, but I don't want to screw anything up. Do you have any resources for making the switch? Did you run into any unexpected problems?

The Einsy Retro seems to not have a space for connecting the 24v case fan to. Is there a recommendation of the best way to deal with that?

You can find the correct position for the case fan on the pin-out diagram shown in Step 6 of the electrical assembly guide: https://ohai.lulzbot.com/project/final- ... i2/mini-2/

Perfect, thank you. Now I have my board wired, and my custom firmware uploaded, but I'll clearly have to make changes. When I hit the Z Home button, the z goes down a bit and then stops, so hopefully just reversing a direction there. We'll see what other little changes I have to make. But the heaters both work, and at least the case fan is right. Yay progress!

So homing is definitely not working. I have defined SENSORLESS_HOMING and it should be set to home up rather than down (since I don't have the new Z endstop). Here are my currently configured options for my custom build. For clarity, I'm trying to make the minimum number of changes to make a super-quiet Mini 1.
#define LULZBOT_CUSTOM_MACHINE_NAME "LulzBot Mini"
#define LULZBOT_LCD_MACHINE_NAME "Mini"
#define LULZBOT_IS_MINI
#define LULZBOT_MINI_BED
#define LULZBOT_USE_EINSYRAMBO
#define LULZBOT_USE_EINSY_RETRO
#define LULZBOT_SENSORLESS_HOMING
#define LULZBOT_USE_AUTOLEVELING
#define LULZBOT_USE_TMC_STEALTHCHOP_Z
#define LULZBOT_USE_Z_SCREW
#define LULZBOT_BAUDRATE 250000
#define LULZBOT_UUID "9b929276-6fb2-4bb6-ac18-a4e2550fa7b7"
Probably when I have some time I'll dig into the details of all of the option groups and see if there's maybe something that is expecting to be paired with something else but isn't available on my setup. I can also break this out into its own posting if it'll be too confusing with the full mini2 conversion talk.
