If we are going with the 3M 98 white, we will need to try to source quickly. Can someone please take a look at the link above and confirm this is what we want?

We added the new wiper pads we had available to some of the printers in Tech Support. Some of them are a bit too low and the nozzle doesn't quite touch them, but the ones that do touch and wipe properly seem to leave less dust and residue in general compared to the other pads we have used.
I have had the new style of Wiper pad installed on my minis, tazs and quivers (taz pro) for a while now and they work better for me than our current polyester - abs treated wiper pads. Both the hardened steel and copper nozzles have been cleaned quite well and they are both more consistently clean, still not perfect tho.
I do think it would be a good idea to have them cut to different sizes for other mounts, measurements bellow:
Taz Pro = 25mm x 90mm (x1 per wiper mount, x2 per machine)
**These are cut with the intention of them being folded long ways and inserted.

@DaniAO I have replaced all my minis with this wiper pad, different thicknesses, some treated, some not. I was using them to get a broader idea of how they were working. I think it could be a good total replacement but I would need a week or so to really put it to the test and see how it cleared off the copper nozzles, probably not much of a difference I would imagine. One thing is that the size I recommend is cut for the Taz Pro wiper mount, we would either need to have different sizes OR we could use the same size and use 3 of them on the widened mini mount and 2 on the normal mini and taz mounts.
@anolen We have been testing the white scotch brite on Quiver, but have we tested it on any other machine yet? Would this be a good replacement at all?

I have already put it on my quivers and am trying to determine its ability to grab material, I also gave some to MER, look for updates soon.
Looks like it worked better the other way around. Can we do a quick test to see if it will grab material from the nozzle instead of smearing it all over the heater block?
SECOND TEST OF Non-Scratch Wiper Pad
This test was done with the pad placed into the wiper mount 'dome up', see picture.
NOTE: The Same Nozzle was used for both Non-Scratch Pad Tests.
@anolen Interesting, thanks for testing that. It looks a lot less worn out than the other types to my eye both the pad and the nozzle. It's not great the little blue flakes on the heaterblock, but it might be that is happening with other similar materials, it's just not as visible because the material is white or grey.
I used the original Wiper Pad Testing Gcode.

Leather Results from initial testing:

@anolen yeah that looks like it, though I would want to get a manufacturer part number so that we could be sure what we are getting. I'm not sure if 3m makes more than one grade of non-scratch pads.
@kent, Is this pad attached to a sponge?
@tutley where can I find a strip of leather that could be conditioned for this kind of use? I will test the suggested ideas the same as my other tests to compare.

I can't seem to find this on scotch-brite's website, but I use this non-abrasive type of scotch brite for cleaning engine blocks/heads because it doesn't scratch but still does a good job of getting stuck-on stuff off.

I like these ones the best for what we need so I am testing them with some polydissolve wash to aid in the material sticking. Right now this wiper clears the nozzle tip great but it doesn't trap the material, just roles it to the back of the nozzle.

Step one now reads:
1x- [AS-EL0002] Hibiscus LCD Assembly
Step 15 now reads:
Thread the harnesses down through clip on the back of the LCD Assembly [AS-EL0002] as shown in image.
Using two M3x25 FHCS [HD-BT0206], secure the LCD Assembly [AS-EL0002] to the front top right corner of the machine.

I will have Cluster print 2 PP-GP0330's on Gladiolas and 2 on Hibiscus tomorrow. Then we will line up the holes and see if it is a printer type issue. I will post the results here on Monday and then we can proceed from there.
All Igus cable chains are now documented
@keebie81 we have had a few firmware updates since you last posted. Are you still noticing this as a problem or can we count this one as resolved?

we now have documentation for:
HD-MS0287 (spacer for bed washers)
Please post any production feed back, and once the OHAI has been updated. Will close the ticket down after that has been done.
Worked on this issue with @kent and it was determined that we could fix with a re-design, however, since the product is released, we can look into it more for a later rev if needed.
In the mean time, we can correct most of the problems by making sure that the parts are aligned properly during installation at final assembly. We have had several new people learning mini final assembly recently.
Re-assigning this ticket to @wolffchadd to work with Kent/MER and provide training to all final assembly personnel. As well as make sure that the Ohai instruction set documents this.

I can verify part of what @EricNugent said earlier in this thread. I will typically get around 5 to 10 LCD assemblies and about 50% of them will be red tagged due to the inserts on the mount being pushed or pulled out.
@paulette how many of these are you seeing and how often?
@DaniAO We saw 2 just last week.
@DaniAO Thank you, I have filed that along with the rest.
