Re: Is this level of guide rail wear normal? (5 month old Pro2)

Sorry for the delay. Here is the footage of the wear on my guiderails. It's uploaded in 4k which helps to see the detail if you the ability to view it like that.

@Vicky I started a ticket but never heard anything back.

Re: Is this level of guide rail wear normal? (5 month old Pro2)

Have you ever touched the rod with your fingers, especially the rust sections before? No not intentionally, I only use microfiber cloth like to clean eye glasses when I apply grease. I also wear nitrile gloves when doing so. I will try to get better images, and video tomorrow. The discoloration spa...

Re: Is this level of guide rail wear normal? (5 month old Pro2)

I do, and have been. I noticed the discoloration maybe a week into using the machine. I put light levels of SuperLube on the guides every few weeks. Im not getting any noise or anything, but I can see the out-of-roundness in the spinning guide rail's hardchrome. @Vicky - Any thoughts? I've started a...

Is this level of guide rail wear normal? (5 month old Pro2)

I just wanted to see what everyone else's guide rails look like. All of my rotating gantry rails have wear like this with exception of one, which looks like it did on day one. Is this pretty normal for a 5 month old machine with ~23 days of print service. https://i.imgur.com/B1zJcQy.jpg https://i.im...

@Vicky Does the system have the power to do a photo per minute at full camera resolution and store to an external USB for post processing of time-lapses by a dedicated PC?

Re: Cables touching Belts

I noticed this on mine as well while printing large area prints. I did the same as you and just managed to push them all up and tuck them away a bit. It did fray the protective sheathing on the heating element wires a bit before I noticed it. Definitely something to look out for from end-users and R...

That's what I was going to ask. It could easily be a drying issue.

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

I'd like to ad Push Plastic PLA to the list of PLAs that are not compatable with the Raise3D Pro2. I've done all the fan mods except for the Nema fans, I've reduced my temps, increased my flow % and still have ran into 3 consecutive jams at the cost of a few bucks material each time and a whole lot ...

Re: Extruder Jam and stuck fillament Pro2

Unfortunately I had another heat creep jam last night even with all the add on modifications. Not sure what to do from here. Ran with the lid off and the door open. Should I add fans to the stepper motors? Should I run faster to prevent melting in the feed throat? Should I cool my hot ends down a bu...

Re: Can we talk about the Pro2 camera quality?

Wait, so you're telling me a camera was put into the product and bottle-necked to the point that the image is difficult to discern because of processing limitations? Change the hardware to accommodate and pass the cost on to your customer for gosh darn sake if you're going to advertise a camera on a...

Can we talk about the Pro2 camera quality?

Can we all agree that paying $4,000 USD for a 3D printer that advertises an included camera in the year of 2018, and realizing that you had a better camera in your flip phone from 2007 is a bit disappointing? Raised - Is the apparent terrible resolution in the included camera in the Pro2 line a resu...

Happy to report that since replacing the fan with one from Jaycar and adding the inlet nozzle we have had no issues at all. I've attached the STL of the inlet nozzle if anyone is interested. Fan inlet cone.STL As mentioned earlier my original fan sucked the hot air from the head which apparently is...

Re: Extruder Jam and stuck fillament Pro2

My left extruder just jammed with PLA, and like everyone else I now have to take the whole thing apart. I touched the fan and half the blades fell off. It now vibrates so badly that I can't even turn it on.

Re: IdeaMaker support for 3DConnexion SpaceNavigator for Notebooks.

@Vicky - Here is the 3DConnexion software developer page. They're pretty much the only name in 3D mouses, and their software allows users to set their preferred settings outside of the 3D software. https://www.3dconnexion.com/service/software-developer.html Additionally, a mouse wheel invert option ...
