Wish: Stronger throat

I've broken 2 throats so far, they are a bit on the fragile side, I'm wondering if a complete redesign of the hot end is needed. I'm not sure if making the throats out of stronger materials would help; fortunately the last throat I broke I was able to remove from the heat block so I only have to pur...

Re: Broke Hot End on N2 Dual

Hi Vicky, this is the video I used for disassembly, but I cannot reassemble because I broke the throat on the hot end. So now I have the 2 heating elements and the fans dangling. I need to figure out how to get them out of the way. Also the video should include something about warming the element up...

Broke Hot End on N2 Dual

Good morning everyone! I have been struggling with a really bad clog so I tried following some videos to unclog the hot end. I followed the video very carefully and snapped the throat cylinder thing and now my dual printer is a single printer. I cannot reassemble my left hot end assembly but I still...

Extruder clogged above the nozzle

Evening folks, Near as I can figure, the feeding tube above the extruder is clogged. To be sure I removed the nozzle and tried to feed filament through, but it won't go below where the heat sinks are. I've run the cleaning rod through till it came out clean several times, I bumped the heat up to 260...

Re: Checklist for printing in ABS

I have a dual extruder N2, I didn't intend to use PLA for supports. I'm looking at doing ABS or another filament for supports that extrudes at a similar temperature if I need supports.

Checklist for printing in ABS

Hello Raisers! I've been loving my N2 for printing in PLA but I'm about to start some costuming projects and in Florida's sun and heat PLA will not cut it! So I'm getting ready to make the necessary mods to print in ABS and I'm trying to come up with a check list to make sure I'm not forgetting anyt...

Transporting my printer

So 3 days after my N2 printer arrives I get a job offer that requires me to either move or commute 2 hours a day each way. So I'm in the process of packing everything. Question is how crucial is it that I get the printer back to the original way it was in shipping with all the screwed in clamps and ...
