Re: Set up the space between the nozzle and the buildtak

As tampyman said, setting your first layer height to 0.20mm if you have spaced the nozzle from the bed at 0.20mm. However I think that's a bit crazy if you are printing at a layer height of 0.05mm. I personally don't print with a raft and try to keep the first layer height the same as my print layer...

Re: Rafts Y/N? (Supports not sticking to bed)

I have never had much luck with rafts as they always seem to be very hard to detach from my models and leave a less than desirable surface. I also try to minimize supports were at all possible when printing parts. The N2 Plus can handle overhangs quite well if your print speed, filament temperature ...

Re: Truing of the print bed?

Anytime! We were having issues with the bed warping between PLA (60C) and PETG (90C). The original method did seem to hold but adjusting was a royal pain and it didn't hold between different bed temperatures. We ran the setup & parts JohnSays posted in that thread. At first we tried a 5 point sy...

Oops! Just realized this is the Pro2 forum. Not sure if this would work on a pro2 but I don't see why not since it seems not much was changed in the leveling from the N2.

Re: New hot end fan necessary - hot end fan installation

Sorry I didn't understand the question. Evan is correct, it goes in the bottom and comes out the top where it plugs into the breakout board. I suggest that you tie a string or something to the wires before you pull the old ones through. The block is hollow so it can be difficult to push the wires ba...

The connectors on a N2 (and probably the Pro2) are the JST P/N: XHP-2 Housing with the JST P/N: SXH-001T-P0.6 crimp

Re: Bltouch on N2+

Re: Where do these "pimples" come from?

probably not related but it seems weird that you have the Extrusion Width at 0.44mm in one window and 0.40mm in the other. is that normal on a Pro2?

You can set the step count in the Touchscreen so you don't need the M92 command. We made the change in the Touchscreen and didn't make any other changes.

Re: Material i Bondtech when taken out of box what is it and how to deal with it?

Ours was the same. Figured it was a test piece but it also could have been for protection of the gears as you suggested. I just unscrewd the spring and removed it with tweezers before mounting. Been working great!

Don’t think you will need to adjust your temperature but you should Autotune the PID settings. Mine were quite different with the sock installed.
