Thermal Protector

For those of you that have applied for the free Thermal Protector (thanks Raise3D), how long did it take to actually get the unit? I'm willing to wait, but since you don't (at least I didn't) get a reply after filling out the form, I just want to make sure nothing happened and I'm at least in the qu...

Re: Hot Voltage Regulator on Control Board

Thanks Jetguy for the list of loads. I routinely run with the box closed, I only had it open to do the FLIR documentation. I have a bunch of good copper heatsinks, but didn't think it would help much. Temp measurement of the VReg was about 43C.

Re: Alternative ON/OFF switch

MDVolle, firesped - using the RC (pins 6 and 7) definitely would work but it would require adding an Emergency Switch to the front (drilling) which is what stopped me from just adding an additional on/off switch wired in series. Both would accomplish the same purpose, however, the Emergency Switch, ...

Re: Hot Voltage Regulator on Control Board

Was just wondering if it would help to add a heat sink to the voltage regulator?

Re: Hot Voltage Regulator on Control Board

I do plan on taking another photo while running a print to see what changes from idle.

Hot Voltage Regulator on Control Board

I took a FLIR image of my motion control board to look at and document the relative heat signatures of my driver boards. When I did so, I discovered another chip that seems to be a good bit warmer than the rest of the board. The N2 was on for about 45 min, but not running any print job, just sitting...

Stepping DIP switches

Before I try to do any changes to the driver boards, I'll like to better understand the DIP switches for setting the stepping (and other features) of the various driver boards. Some data sheets refer to CFG1-3 (TMC2100) or MS1-3 (SD6128). Under the boards are 3 DIP switches (arranged top to bottom)....

Re: Alternative ON/OFF switch

Actually, a good question. I'll fire up my spectrum analyzer and see what frequency it operates on, whether it's digital or analogue, and then compare that to my other remotes. CYA is always a good thing.

Alternative ON/OFF switch

Don't get me wrong, I love the N2, but the first thing that bothered me was the location of the ON/OFF switch. Given the size of the unit and it's weight, it wasn't easy reaching behind every time I needed to use it. It should have been mounted on the front panel for easy access. I pondered the idea...

Re: LCD Box

Vicky, walshlg, thanks for your replies. Have the cable off of the pcDuino and pulled down so it is underneath the printer. I powered it with a standard AC USB adapter to verify I indeed had the correct cable that feeds up top. Now, I just need to wait on the 24v-5v USB adapter and reinstall my NEST...

LCD Box

I traced the USB connector (supposedly reserved for a future camera) from the top rear left corner down under and up to the LCD enclosure. I want to unplug it from the board and feed it with a 24v to 5v USB adapter so I can plug my USB camera into it. My NEST camera draws 1A and I don't want to sink...

Re: Shifting Forward and Backwards.

Vicky, thanks for the reply. Will send ticket re belts. Noticed Z belt very snug, especially compared to X and Y. I've found many helpful replies from you and the rest of the Raise3D crew on this forum (attachments to other posts) - example, adjusting X and Y axes, pics of boards or components, etc....

Re: Shifting Forward and Backwards.

John or Vicki - just got my N2 and the 2nd print was a long 23 hr print. Got a layer shift (<1mm) about 2/3 way thru, otherwise fine. Decided to follow your X and Y axis check list and noticed that one of the screws on the left side (see picture) is backed out about 1/4" while the identical one...
