Re: Print slow, me or Idea?

deceleration speed may be coming into play. IIRC that is set in firmware.

usually no settings mean that you haven't selected a printer in printer settings

Re: Looking at a Raise3D N2 (non-plus)

fwiw - I use several types of 3d printers. All of them clog occasionally, no way around that using fdm. I did the bed mod with the springs and thumb screws - big improvement if you need to print thin or big items. As opposed to others, I reset Z frequently depending on what I am printing and how muc...

Re: a couple small tweaks to wipe towers that might help in certain use cases

the wipe tower does follow the contour of the model. I do not think making it smaller at the top is a very good idea because as the size of the printed area decreases, you have trouble cooling the small area before the next layer is printed right on top of it. This is one of the things that limits p...

Re: wipe tower issues

I think that the purpose of the wipe tower is to catch these blobs. May I suggest that you experiment with temperature, retraction and speeds to see if you can find the source of this ooze.

Re: what is causing this problem

another question: is that support stuck to the bottom or the bottom layer of the part?

Re: Bad Overhangs/ Supported Area Surface

One thing I found is that if you need support them MAXIMIZE the support you use. Print it as one continuous mass instead of separate columns and it seems to give a better bottom surface. It also seems to help to print on a raft if printing a large area of support. last, it is very very tough to get ...

Re: Bed took too long to heat - so I fixed the problem.

nifty, I think I follow but it looks like you have a voltage divider across the control voltage for the 2 fets in parallel. Did I get that right?

Thanks, that safety bug is very disturbing. The behavior I observed seems to fit the firmware, interesting, thanks for the insights.

Re: Printing with a 1mm nozzle

FWIW I printed fine using 800um nozzles and increasing extrusion width up to 1.2mm. The only thing you need to do is really cut your speed down, printed at 20mm/sec. Also need to work on temperature and retraction. Made nice clear vases in petg BUT best was still extrusion width 800um and layer ht 6...

Re: Raft + Brim? also +10 brim lines.

I have seen that as well, it seems to print a skirt rather than brim when printing with a raft.
