Re: Thermal Protector - Cable Won't Plug In

Jetguy, Thanks for the replies. This all checks out and my board header is definitely missing the pin even though I can't really see the inserted one in the connector. I suspect it's just down a little too deep to see clearly but actually there. I totally trust your guidance on this but will probabl...

Thermal Protector - Cable Won't Plug In

I'm trying to install the Thermal Protector into my N2 Plus and for some reason the connector from the original cable won't plug into the socket on the protector. I've checked the orientation and all the pins appear to be straight, but for some reason there's a lot of resistance when I try to mate t...

Thermal Runaway Error During Filament Load

I just got a Thermal Runaway error and restart while loading filament via the utility (215c) on my 2.5 year old N2 Plus. I've never had this before and have not installed the thermal protector upgrade. After reading several threads on the forums I have some ideas about what might be going on, but wo...

Re: Brim/Skirt Ideas

Brim for Supports – Simplify3D now allows adding a brim around your support structures, which adds even more surface area to hold down the edges of your supports. Use this in combination with the solid support base layers for an incredibly strong hold! Solid Base Layers – This new option allows you ...

Re: Brim/Skirt Ideas

None of my supports that contact the bed have a brim. Is there an option to enable this that I may be missing?

Re: Share slice settings between filament types (and printers)?

I guess I don't understand why the profiles are segregated like this in the first place in IM's UI. It would also be nice to allow a slice profile to be assigned to a model (or models) in your IM project so when you open it later there's no guesswork about how it was sliced previously. This is even ...

Share slice settings between filament types (and printers)?

I'm not a fan of how IM segregates the different slicing profiles between each filament and printer type. This makes it very cumbersome to re-use carefully dialed in settings when you simply switch from Raise PLA to a 3rd party filmaent, etc. The same holds true for when you switch printers. The Imp...

Brim/Skirt Ideas

A couple of quick thoughts... 1. Do we really need separate brim and skirt settings? Why not have it be one setting and you define if it's a brim by choosing 0.0mm offset. 2. Is there a way to force brim/skirt generation on the inside wall of parts that have closed interior borders? If not, please c...

N2 Plus Dual in Single Mode - Right Fan First Layer ON?

I've converted my N2 Plus dual to a single extruder to reduce weight and improve print quality, but one thing I've noticed is that the remaining fan for the now missing right hot end does not obey per-layer fan control instructions. This means it remains ON when the first layer goes down even though...

Re: Z Banding on N1 with V2 Hot End

Still no resolution from Raise3D on this issue. I've been waiting for 2 months to hear back on their engineer's diagnosis for the cause. I'm hoping that I don't have a $2k paperweight on my hands :(

Simplify3D & N2 Plus - V2 Hot End Adjustments?

I've swapped the V1 hot-end of my N2 Plus out for a V2 since last slicing using Simplify3D. Are there any adjustments I should make to my existing N2 Plus profile to account for the V2? I assume a lower temperature for PLA since the V1 had problems with anything lower than 210, but anything else tha...

Gray Premium PLA Please.

There's an image of a nice GRAY color on the Raise3D Premium PLA product page, but unfortunately it's not available in the choices to add to the cart. Any chance we can get this awesome looking color added to the product line?

Re: Z Banding on N1 with V2 Hot End

Hi Jetguy,

I have the Bohong. Michael from Raise3D is here right now doing some diagnostics. Yea!

Here is the Gcode from Simplify3D, one standard layer and one vase mode.

Thanks,

Re: Z Banding on N1 with V2 Hot End

Here's a photo showing the results at 0.2mm sliced in Simplify. Right is vase mode and left regular layer mode. I called Rasie3D yesterday who said they are looking into the issue and will let me know.

Extra Inflation Distance for Supports in IdeaMaker?

Simplify3D offers a nice little feature for supports called "Extra Inflation Distance". This value lets you set how much the slicer pads or extends the supports outward by a mm value. Any chance we can get something like this in IdeaMaker?

Are there any detailed instructions and/or videos out there on the process of swapping out the V1 hotend for the V2 on the N2 Plus? I had V2s sitting on the shelf for months that were supposed to be swapped out by the Raise3D tech who delivered my N1 but he mistook the older V2 design for a V1 and c...

Re: Z Banding on N1 with V2 Hot End

All this being said, I'm definitely down to follow any advice you might have as to what hardware and electronics I should consider upgrading to. I've narrowed down my herd of FDM printers to only the N2 Plus and and N1 at this point and had expected the N1 to be my best quality FDM unit while the N2...

I have both the N1 (V2 Hotend) and N2 Plus (V1 hotend, for now) and rely mostly on Idea Maker for slicing for these units. However I've been a huge fan of Simplify3D for all my other printers and wanted to start using it more on my N1. Simplify 4.0 includes a profile for the N2 but nothing specificl...

Re: Z Banding on N1 with V2 Hot End

I totally get what you are saying. I've owned 6 FMD printers before the N1 ranging in prince from $300-$2500. Each has had their issues and most required some level of modification or upgrades, however I've never experienced anything as extreme as the level of banding I'm getting on the N1. I'm perf...
