Re: Ramp to Print Surface in Raft Printing??

I think I understand what you're saying, but I can't say I'm seeing what you're describing. I haven't noticed any print height issues with the new firmware's. Which model of printer are you using? Have you tried contacting technical support?

Re: Create Support Interface

Vertical offset will allow you to stop support layers at <a> levels below the printed layer. for a given x-y coordinate. Dense layers will also create a higher infill support layer for the last <b> layers you specify prior to printing the part on the support structure. I have my vertical offset set ...

Re: Curling Edge / Warping Pro2

I've had curling if the bed is too far away for the first layer. With the included metal thickness tester of 0.2mm, I try and get the bed just a bit closer so there's a bit of friction between the nozzle tip and the height tester. I don't have a way of measuring that distance at all outside of the m...

Hatchbox PLA

Hatchbox PLA users, what temperature setting do you use for non white filament? I'd like to try some of this stuff alongside the Raise3D brand PLA. I've found 205 works well for Raise3D brand, and the room I'm building in is cool over the winter (ambient temp is 6 degrees C), with a bed temp of 60 C...

Re: Pro2: Printing with support structures disappointing / unacceptable

I’ve got a roll of BVOH, but have yet to actually use it. Your right PLA dual printing is great, but so is PLA supporting PLA. It turned out quite well, and it’s easy to remove the support PLA without removing the actual model PLA. Other than using PolySupport (which is recommended for polycarbonate...

Re: Deactivate purge line at start

I usually do a skirt with a raft, or for Polysupport a brim depth of 5-10 with a raft. Most times I wait for a few minutes for the purge amount to extrude, then quickly grab it as the print heads move to position before the print starts. Even with that, I'd say out of the remainder of the times I do...

Re: Problems in the Top layer but only half surface.

One of two things come to mind. Either the bed isn't leveled 100% or you're experiencing minor warping. With a piece as shown in the picture, I doubt it'd be warping as you don't have small thin portions of your part anywhere. In either case, the print job wouldn't fix itself over multiple layers. W...

Re: 1st Layer Dragging on N2+ with BondTech and .6mm Rubies

Try lowering the speeds in I believe it's in the advanced tab. Your first layer speed of 8.0mm is good, but that only applies when the nozzle is extruding. There will be other movement settings up to 500mm/s, or 800mm/s to move the print head when not extruding. Note this will increase the time of y...

Re: Raise 3D Pro 2 Plus Dual Extruder Shift Issue

Pretty much this ^. When dealing with dual extruders on a single print, you should always have a wipe wall enabled. I had mine set to three width layers (one thick doesn't always stay adhered along the Z axis, and two is fine depending on the material). There will always be a little bit of oozing on...

The object is roughly (in inches) 3x3x10 in size, mostly hollow and contains 15 million triangles. Slicing of the model for my pro2pl...

Re: Needing help with the print

Sorry for the delay in reply - I've had my printer running 24/7 recently! Gaps like that can be caused by the flow rate of your fillament (in this case, not high enough), or temperature slightly too low (less likely). There could be gear slippage too (unlikely), or something more sinister. I'd defin...

Re: Stringing on N1 Dual

I've definitely printed tens of PLA models since my last post in this thread all with 0 stringing. The only other comment I can add is brand of PLA. I use Polymaker's PLA and have nothing but good things to say about it.

Re: Problems with Print quality ABS

I'm a bit late to the party here, but looking at your first couple of pictures with the amount of material all over the nozzle tells me there's a small break in your hot end somewhere. I had a similar experience where the nozzle slightly broke just below the heat sink, and that caused polycarbonate ...

You may need to set dense layers for the last couple of vertical (Z-axis) shells.

Re: Best Filament Brand for Each type of Material

I've had success with Polymaker's PLA, PC-Max (polycarbonate) and used in conjunction with Polymaker's PolySupport as support material for PC-Max.
