Overview

So Make It has five Lulzbot Minis donated variously by Lulzbot and James. One is currently non-function and awaiting repair or use as spares for the others. One is setup with a Flexystruder for prinding flexible filaments like Ninjaflex and TPU. The rest are best used to print ABS and PLA.

The build surfaces are a mixture of bare glass, PEI and Buildtak. Please be aware of the differences surrounding printing different materials on different surfaces. {TODO}

How to Use

How To Print

The Minis don't have an on board card reader/file system so must be driven externally via USB from an external computer

Follow the guide Printing with Cura or Printing with Octoprint (coming soon)

If you need to stop The Printer

If printing directly from either Cura or Octoprint, press the Cancel button on the print control panel.

In the event this has no effect or you are unsure, just turn the Power Supply off and look for someone who can help. Don't leave the hot nozzle touching the bed if you can avoid it - turning it back on should cause the print head to return to its home position.

Maintenance

There is a monthly maintenance check-list printed in the space, source is here: https://github.com/somakeit/operations/raw/master/Printer%20Service%20Schedules/LulzBot%20Mini%20Service%20Schedule.ods

if the print surface is changed (i.e. PEI sheet is swapped for buildtak or removed entirely for bare glass) then the Z-axis offset will need to be recalibrated: https://ohai.lulzbot.com/project/z-axis-offset-adjustment-LulzBot-Mini/
