Bed Adhesion/Proper Raft Squish

I'm having issues getting the proper squish of my raft, and thus I'm getting warping. I'm printing with a 0.6mm nozzle, and am using a 0.15mm feeler gauge. I understand that using that nozzle gap with a 0.6 nozzle will cause an pressure buildup in my hotend; however, it's the only way I can get some...

Re: Print failed at very end

Print may have also came loose from the build plate. It was not at the center of the plate when I came in. Am I getting proper raft squish? 20180822_081739.jpg I did notice that right before it starts extruding the raft, the build plate drops slightly from the Z-offset I set at the start. I don't se...

Print failed at very end

Came into work this morning to a failed print right at the end. I looks like it tried to print the area that failed, but it just dragged the nozzle over it. No layer shifts that I can tell. Could it have anything to do with the dense support layer I have on? 20180822_075711.jpg 20180822_075714.jpg 2...

Re: Part Shifting Again Again and Again

I was told a similar thing from tech support. Doing the gantry alignment once may not align it fully. As you tighten everything back up there is a chance you can introduce more misalignment. So doing it more than once helps. I would imagine there is a sequence that you can use to tighten up the bolt...

Re: Lots of Layer Shift N2+ Dual

We'll definitely look into doing the motor and driver upgrade as our warranty for electronics is up as well. The Bondtech extruder has been on our list for some time now. But with the recent printing issues we couldn't justify upgrading anything until we got it to at least print without layer shifts...

Re: Lots of Layer Shift N2+ Dual

After a few hours of printing, my motors are definitely hot. Currently running at 152F using a laser thermometer. Do you know what temp your motors were reaching?

Re: Part Shifting Again Again and Again

Was told to decreased X/Y rapid movement speed to increase torque from extra tension from filament sensor. Also to install full length guide tube. I had 2 small pieces attached to either end before. I have my electronics box open to allow for better air flow. And the print I'm running now was sliced...

Re: Lots of Layer Shift N2+ Dual

I was told that lowering would actually cause more of an issue for me. That was based off of the assumption that it's the filament runout sensor adding extra tension and that X/Y rapid movement was set to 100mm/s. when it went from one side of the print to the other it tugged on the filament and the...

Re: Part Shifting Again Again and Again

Rods are cleaned and greased. It generally happens later in the print. So I will definitely check motor temp.

Re: Part Shifting Again Again and Again

I also tried moving the print head with the motors enabled. No movement what so ever. Also, my motor couplers are tight and show no signs of fatigue.

Re: Part Shifting Again Again and Again

We're having the exact same issue with shifts. Different directions. Different locations. All my connection points are tight. I've done the gantry alignment once so far. I can check the driver voltages, but at this point we can't trust this printer to complete anything without a shift.

Last picture was a repeat. Sorry about that. Here's the picture I meant to post.

Re: Lots of Layer Shift N2+ Dual

Came in this morning to even more layer shifts. Really confused as to what is causing this.

Re: Lots of Layer Shift N2+ Dual

Jetguy, that is no typo. I was legitimately told to increase it to 300 mm/s. I understand what the jerk setting does, but at that time I was ready to try just about anything to get this thing to not shift. We've lost so much time from the printer having issues that my hopes of getting a Pro series h...

Lots of Layer Shift N2+ Dual

I've been having consistent layer shifts in all axis on my Raise3D N2+ Dual. I've already tightened all my connections. My belts are properly tensioned. The rods were recently cleaned and re-greased. The fan inside the electrical box is running strong. I've been running long ABS prints with a heated...
