Re: Support Offset

If we take the buildplate surface as a z height of 0, bottom layer refers to the support structure with the lowest z-value, and top refers to the highest z value. So as an example, if your object had support from the bed to say 2.00cm high, then the bottom refers to layer 0.00cm to bottom offset val...

Re: Ideamaker 0.6mm nozzle settings?

You may also need to increase your layer size a bit (from 0.2 to 0.25 or 0.3). If you don't get a quick enough answer on the forums, you can always give tech support a call. They have a bunch of numbers for all of the different nozzles.

Re: Strange surface finish on PLA print

Judging from both your threads having extrusion issues with multiple materials, I'd say this is deeper than a quick fix we might be able to provide. At this point I'd suggest calling Raise3D technical support. You can direct the technician to these forum posts over the phone as well. They will likel...

Re: Polycarbonate stringing and poor surface finish

That's a good question! The template itself won't, but I'm wondering if you'd be able to download it, and copy the values your printer can make use of in a new template. @Vicky@Raise3D needs to weigh in on this!

Re: Calibration PRO 2

I might be able to weigh in here. I've had my Pro2+ for coming up on 3/4 of a year, and the bed itself is not out of level on an X-Y plane. It does however shift ever so slightly along the Z- height, as the mechanism for that is a screw which slots between an optical beam to determine where to stop ...

Re: Raise3D Red Premium PLA strings like spider webs

Truthfully, I've been getting those ever since Ideamaker was updated to 3.3.0 along with my Pro2 firmware, but that only happens on Z-hop enabled prints I do. What's happening there is there's just a bit of gravity extruded amount of plastic while the printer is not actively extruding, and travellin...

Have you tried my settings template? Also +1 on PolyMaker's PC-Max material. Never really had problems with it once I figured out how to print with polycarbonate in general!

Keep in mind this is on 3.1 settings when I made this profile, and not 3.3.0. Third last post contains my print settings as a downloadable template. You can disable the polysupport second nozzle if you wish.

Re: Printing directly on the bed without a RAFT?

I haven't modified the federate from the default profile. I'm using the included BuildTak surface, but I've found wiping it down with warm water (and then a dry microfiber cloth after while giving it a little bit of scrubbing force on the drying part) seems to fix any adhering issues. I've been doin...

Re: Printing directly on the bed without a RAFT?

If you're printing PLA without the raft, the standard PLA default profile works great. But, I've changed my bed height relative to the nozzle so that when you measure with the 0.2mm metal piece, it requires a little bit of persuading to fit between the nozzle and print bed. So the separation distanc...

Re: Benchy Boat Squished

Double check your bed height is set correctly from the nozzle. That looks like the nozzle is lightly impacting the previous layer’s print and re-melting it somewhat.

Re: Rules of thumb for overhang angle settings?

The first question is what plastic are you using? PLA, ABS, PC, (many others)…? Some are more forgiving than others. For example, PLA is definitely more forgiving than Polycarbonate. Since the plastic is extruded in a spherical shape from the nozzle (or really one super long cylindrical shape), we c...

Re: Problem with corners

I haven't used PRO PLA, so I can't say for 100% certain what the under extruding issue is. It's possible there's not enough of a gap between layers such that the new extrusion is meeting a bit of resistance when it's coming out of the nozzle. Easy way to check that is to play around with your layer ...
