LulzBot Mini bed calibration update saves your bed.

LulzBot released several updates to the LulzBot Mini firmware that are included with the recent Cura LulzBot Edition version 20.

Among the updates is a check when the Mini runs auto calibration bed leveling to ensure that the calibration is within an acceptable range.  If any of the corner checks are outside the range- typically caused by plastic on the nozzle preventing contact with the corner washer, the calibration start over with a re-wipe of the nozzle.  If the calibration fails twice, the print is halted.   This prevents damage to the bed from a bad calibration.

LulzBot TAZ 4 and TAZ 5 Power Suppy

We’ve recently had demand for upgraded LulzBot TAZ replacement power supplies for customers that had the early plastic cased supplies that shipped with the LulzBot TAZ 4s and early  TAZ 5s.  The later metal cased TAZ 5 supplies are great, but replacements are in short supply.  Customers also prefer a power switch on the power supply allowing the power supply to be shut off when not is use.  This conserves power and eliminates from noise the power supply cooling fan while extend the fan’s life.

Building on the idea LulzBot used with earlier TAZs, we designed a new endcap to fit the Mean Well SE-450-24 450W 24V power supply and have assembled upgraded TAZ 4 and TAZ 5 power supplies!

LulzBot TAZ upgraded replacement power supply. With power switch.
