Re: Idea Maker Wont Set PETG (L) abnd PVA (R) dual extrusion with right Settings. Its setting the PVA way to hot so jamm

Hm, I’ll have to check ideaMaker later this evening, but I don’t see why the temperature box would be greyed out for that printer. I haven’t had anything before the Pro 2 line came out, so that’s about all I can offer :/

Re: Idea Maker Wont Set PETG (L) abnd PVA (R) dual extrusion with right Settings. Its setting the PVA way to hot so jamm

Which printer model are you using? At first guess, im thinking the wrong model is selected in idea maker, as a greyed out box usually means the feature is disabled. I’ve got a Pro 2 Plus (also selected in ideamaker) and I can modify both nozzle temps and heat bed in the cooling tab. If you’ve got th...

Re: Small Print Problems

Just to not leave you on viewed and give you something to read after no responses for a few days - I haven't tried ABS yet, but there was a post on these forums from quite a few months ago (maybe 1+ year) about using ABS with BVOH support. There was even an included bin file for settings the user fo...

Re: Nozzle catching on small detail

I have yet to work with ABS, but if there's similarities to polycarbonate - then this might apply! In terms of z-hop, if you're layering at 0.2mm increments, than a z-hop value of 0.250mm should be fine. That allows for one and a bit layer spacing for the print head to move around without extruding....

Re: Stringing on N1 Dual

I have a Pro 2 Plus and used the default standard PLA settings for a more complicated (bigger and higher) print recently with no stringing. I'm not sure if the default profiles are different between printers or not, but the first thing you can try is lowering the extrusion temperature slightly (try ...

Re: Print speed

Disclaimer first, I don't own a printer other than a Raise3D Pro 2 Plus, so my answers aren't tested between different vendor machines. There's a couple of things that come to mind for printing speed. Filament width sort of applies here, it's more what your nozzle extrusion size is with rate of spee...

Thanks Vicky! I tried to upload a zip file but every time I did so, the website froze up and wouldn't allow me to do anything other than refresh the page (or other top bar navigational buttons). I didn't try multiple browsers, just the standard Edge browser with Windows 10.

Re: Polymaker PC-Max woes

Success! Dense support as well as increasing the heatbed back to 100 degrees C worked. I’ve got a little bit of sanding to do to get some of the dense support off of the polycarbonate model, but I needed to sand this model slightly anyways. Here’s some pictures, where the red is PLA and black is Pol...

Re: Polymaker PC-Max woes

I thought about using grid for the dense support, but I stuck with lines at 90% infill for the time being. Vertical offset is 1. The print has been going for about 14 hours, and I’ll be able to check on it in a couple of hours to see if the updated settings worked better or not. I’ve also dialed the...

Re: Polymaker PC-Max woes

Double post again, sorry. I have new info and a theory to test. I was able to catch the part failing, instead of finding it after work or sleep. Detro, your theory was right. What appears to be happening either using PC-Max or PolySupport as support material, is once the PC-Max layers start reaching...

Re: Polymaker PC-Max woes

I’m only using the second nozzle for PolySupport, otherwise just the one nozzle for PC-Max extrusion. That said, the nozzles on the Pro 2 Plus will move up or down based on if they are the active extruder or not. Your comment actually does get me wondering if the part is warping up towards the nozzl...

Polymaker PC-Max woes [SOLVED]

So I’ve started to get into more complicated pieces with polycarbonate. Turns out my settings from my previous thread only went so far. That’s okay though, there’s a lot of trial and error going on here! First up, some pictures. The first two in red were done with one nozzle extruding PLA on a Pro 2...

Re: Retraction Settings - Stringing

I just printed a PLA part over the past two days with a slightly less intricate design, but there's no stringing on it what so ever. I used the default PLA standard profile (included with the latest firmware for the printer and Ideamaker as of this post's timestamp), and enabled z-hop for a height o...

Re: Polymaker PC-Max with PolySupport

Double post as I can't modify my earlier one yet... When I printed with straight PC-Max, I didn't have layer separation. The only differences I had from the info you've said is I had the print head at 265, and the bed temp set to 100-110. I've got two first layer raft levels and two solid levels (ke...

Re: Polymaker PC-Max with PolySupport

I tried printing with only PC-Max once, and pretty well destroyed my Buildtak surface when removing it after the print was done. I'm terrified to print without a Polysupport raft with PC-Max parts now!

Re: FYI: MagicGoo has a half-life

Can verify this. I also have two different tubes of Magigoo and after about 6 weeks, polysupport starts peeling off the build plate a few hours in mid print.

Re: Whats the difference between Feed Rate and Flow Rate especially with materials like Ninjaflex

Feedrate is typically the speed of the print head along the x-y plane. Flowrate is the amount of material extruded from the nozzle (as a volume). It's calculated using federate and speed of the material through the nozzle which is governed by the gear feeding the material strand in. I've never used ...

Hey all, Medium range lurker, first time poster, so please go easy on me! I joined the Raise3D family back in April of this year with a Pro2 Plus printer. Since then, I've been working on printing using polycarbonate and Polysupport (all from PolyMaker) right off the bat. I've definitely browsed thr...
