Re: Multi part G Code question

Thanks very much guys.... I will take a look at Cura tomorrow. I looked at g code for a very simple part to contemplate joining several files and while feasible it is a lot of work and prone to error compared to a slicer that has the capability built in.

Multi part G Code question

A colleague and I, both with Pro 2 printers, want to create a G Code file that will allow us to print multiple instances of a small part during a single print session, but we want to print the parts sequentially, not simultaneously. For the best part aesthetics and layer bond quality, (we will be us...

Re: Liquid cooled heat sink for the Pro2

Thanks, KH-Husker. I am also considering offering a package of all the drawings and a BOM for all the bits. Everything is available from McMaster Carr, Amazon, etc.. I would probably include the drawings for the integrated feeder box as well. It is very much a part of bringing the Pro 2 to a complet...

Re: Liquid cooled heat sink for the Pro2

An update on my liquid cooling installation on the Pro 2. The new heat sinks are now installed on both hot ends. I tidied up the pump and radiator assembly from E3D and made up an extension cord receptacle box that includes a switch. The Pro 2 and the little power brick for the pump and radiator fan...

Pro 2 software extruder control - bug

I have set up my Pro2 to use the left, so called "default" extruder to use a variety of higher temp engineering grade filaments... nylon or PETG with either glass or carbon, for example. I keep the right extruder set up for PLA filaments. Let's say I want to print a small PLA part from the...

Re: Liquid cooled heat sink for the Pro2

I can report that both extruders now have the liquid cooled heatsinks and the E3D pump and radiator are hooked up. The plumbing is still a little disorganized, but the system is fully functional. I needed to get the machine printing. Have been running Max-G PETG w glass at 255C. Heat sinks remain ba...

Re: Liquid cooled heat sink for the Pro2

Hi Ken, the part is a Solid works file, which I am happy to share, or the detail drawing that a machinist can work from. PM me and we can work out the details. I finished the second heatsink and the E3D pump and radiator kit is hooked up.

Re: Solved : overheating , Jams , fail Prints , stuck Pro2

I had terrible jams using 3DX-Tech CarbonX Gen2. Also Makerbot Tough PLA. I concluded there was very poor cooling due to the inadequate heatsink - airflow combination. I designed and machined copper water cooled heatsinks and discarded the big fan. Just finished the install a few days ago. I haven't...

Thanks! Pics are probably fine as long as they are shot in landscape mode. I will try to remember to try that next time.

Liquid cooled heat sink for the Pro2

There have been posts elsewhere in this forum about the size and efficacy of the Pro2 hot6 end heat sinks. The Pro2 is my first printer so I don't have years of experience with hot ends, but I have experienced a number of "freezes" in the throat tube using higher temp filled filaments that...

Custom Dry Feeder Box for the Pro2

My colleague and I both use a number of filaments that are sensitive to humidity, but more and more the current thinking seems to suggest all filaments should be kept as dry as possible. We both built dry boxes incorporating "lizard heaters" and desiccants. The boxes worked fine but were a...

Re: E3D V6 on Pro2

I am interested. Curious to see the new rendering with no loss in useable height, though that is not a deal breaker. Don't know the measurements of the V6 but there is little space outside of the stock heat sink... Especially on the left extruder as the extruder retract drive motor is directly behin...

Re: Ideamaker crashes importing Raise3D .bin file

I discovered this bug a few weeks ago and notified support. I am not holding my breath as the first response I got was "we don't have a Mac here". I hope there is a mass emailing to owners when new software is posted.

Re: Printer Nozzle diameter selection

True, but if the Printer is thinking both nozzles are .6mm but one is actually .4mm and I choose .4mm for the extrusion width the line created by that .4mm nozzle will be correct even though the printer thinks it is .6mm?

You are correct about the key combos... I am using a MS keyboard with my Mac so my key names are switched. I mis named the keys so sorry for the confusion.

Adapted Olsson Ruby nozzles

If you are printing any filled filaments, glass or carbon fiber in particular, you know that brass nozzles have a half life measured in hours. Don't bother buying the Raise3D "hard" nozzles. They are not hard. They are essentially the same standard brass nozzles with an electroless nickel ...

Re: Extruder Jam and stuck fillament Pro2

The Pro2 is my first printer. I have been able to print Matterhacker Nylon X, and 3DXTech PETG with glass pretty reliably. I then tried 3DXtech Nylon w CF, Gen 2 and all hell broke loose. Lost count of the hot end jams. Tried dozens of setting combinations. Worked with their tech support. Occasional...
