Re: Model release

Remove the plate and rub ice on the opposite side of where the print sits. Be sure that the glass is cooled down to room temperature before using ice on it, or you will surely crack the glass plate. A better method is to allow the plate to cool and then put the whole plate into the freezer for a fe...

Re: Buildtak and Glass Build plate questions

I have used, in order: Glue stick on glass, then a PEI surface on glass (both on a different printer), then the BuildTak that came on the N2, which lasted me 2 weeks, and then just glass with hair spray. And after trying the glass with hairspray there is no going back for me. I’ve been on it for abo...

I've always wondered when this would come. I'm surprised Simplify3d still does not have this.

Re: Model release

Remove the plate and rub ice on the opposite side of where the print sits. Less practical than the upside down compressed air but a lot cheaper. This is especially effective for large prints with large surface areas. The prints pop off.

Re: N2 or N2+

I got the N2. Not regretted one bit compared to N+. But I have thought on occasion I may have been better off with N1. I never use the full bed but I like the fuzzy feeling of knowing it’s there if I ever need it. I also like the trammed bed that the N1 does not have. As for the N2+, I have little u...

Re: Trying to print PLA with PVA support

Mosaic Palette+ Pros: Stellar print quality when properly tuned and setup. Use 4 at a time or even change mid print and use nearly unlimited numbers of filament types and colors in a single print. Yes, there is limits to this but there are examples of complex 12 or more color prints. Can be moved b...

Awsome. Is hydro dipping commercially available? Is it user friendly or very much still in development?

Re: Printer Setting for Printing at 50micron?

I don’t have an answer I will give you some things to think about. In my experience: 1. Printing at .050 layers is super difficult and generally not worth the effort and enormous amount of time it takes. I would not use it for anything larger than the Marvin demo print from 3d hubs. 2. I expect usin...

Re: Did the update change the current to the extruder motor?

Sorry it took so long to reply Jetguy, been super busy at work. Thanks for the detailed info. I do remember turning the potentiometer of the stepper driver but I had forgotten! I knew there was a setting that had to do with power to the extruder motor! I received a fresh new roll of eSun PLA+ but ha...

Re: Did the update change the current to the extruder motor?

Two things: 1. I’m an idiot. It turns out my nozzle was a .6 and when I did the updates it reverted to the default .4 Those are the kind of details that get lost when you stop printing for 18 months. And also makes me see the value of Ultimaker 3’s “intelligent” hotends that have NFC chips telling t...

Re: Did the update change the current to the extruder motor?

Thanks for clarifying Jetguy. ABS does seem to be working a lot better, but the jury is still out on whether the issue is non-existent. At the moment I think it is still there, but not as bad.

Are soluble supports worth the hassle? Also do they work better in the Ultimaker 3?

I only ask because I’ve heard many complaints about working with PVA. I have a single extruder N2 and am wondering if I’m missing out. I even remember reading in these forums of people who got sick of issues with the second nozzle and even turned their dual extruder printer into a single extruder. B...

Did the update change the current to the extruder motor?

Hello all, I'm in the process of getting back into 3D printing with my kickstater N2 but it is underextruding. I had printed about 8 models without issue using some left over Raise3D PLA, but then I did the updates and also ran out of the Raise3D PLA. I have the V2 hotend and Bondtech mini extruder....

Re: Broken ribbon… again… I think

Hey everyone. Just getting back into printing with my kickstarter N2. Is the new cable better than soldering the 2 resistors or is it the same? Are there instructions somewhere showing where to solder the resistors? (and the value of the resistors?) While I'm at it should I upgrade the firmware on m...

Re: Has any user done anything to address health-related issues during 3D printing?

I’m very interested in this subject as well because I moved to the US to a community of rental houses where I don’t have an outside shack. And even if I did have one, I would not be climate controlled so I would think printing during the winter months would not be good. What does everyone here do? J...

Re: ideaMaker 2.2.3 Release Note 2016.8.25

Very often it happens that I select PLA instead on PLA V2 hot end. That could be your problem. Hope this helps.
