Re: Two design glitches that can cause serious issues (filament feed, print head bearings not fixed)

Yeh I'm wondering if the bearing went or the housing is destroyed? Did you put filament guide tubes on the extruder? Mine whack on the cable chain but it keeps the filament from tangling. It's the bearing. What you see on the pics is the carrier with the new bearings fitted already. No play anymore...

Re: Two design glitches that can cause serious issues (filament feed, print head bearings not fixed)

The bearings are just fitted to the carriage, nothing to remove except the locking rings. Yes the spacer came to my mind first (nothing else after it yet). But maybe hard to find one that is an exact match (the space between the carriage and the locking ring should be closed exactly, at least less t...

Two design glitches that can cause serious issues (filament feed, print head bearings not fixed)

My printer is printing with reduced quality since more than a month now, the cause was a tangled spool that tied the print head while printing for hours over night (that PLA is quite strong, did not break fast). After that, the printer lost it's accuracy, showing ugly surfaces (horizontal and vertic...

Re: Just purchased the N2! Some general questions + filament recommendations?

I don't know how much printers have been delivered (1000?) and how much leaked (3, 5?). Question always is, what was done before (changed Hotend, removed a clog?), maybe these actions caused it... NuNus and Prima3D have PLA and ABS on Amazon, I would rate them good, but the others I mentioned before...

Re: Is it possible to print if computer and printer are in separate areas?

No, actually I have no idea what to use it for on a Nx.
If you done with the print you have to get there to remove it.
Everything else (upload, start, stop, control) could be done with IdeaMaker from the sofa.

WiFi and direct cable Ethernet.
You can start / stop / control prints from somewhere else.

Re: Just purchased the N2! Some general questions + filament recommendations?

R3D is watching the forum and reacts on some issues by adjusting manufacturing. Means some/most/all of the issues might be fixed on your machine already. The filament feed is the most critical thing IMHO, if you already have the feeding tubes it's o.k., if you feed from above thru a spool holder you...

Re: 3D Printing Nerd: Raise3D N2+ Unboxing and First Use

I mentioned exactly the same disappointment with the lack of pre-sliced models on the USB stick to the Raise team back in February. It really would improve the fun of the moment and out-of-the-box experience if you didn't then have to sit down and learn the slicer before being able to see the machi...

I'm not looking for a tinkering printer at all, I'm looking for good prints without having to fix it right away. Saying that you should start to subtract the tinkerers statements of that what you read in the forum. Most of them (Tinkerers) want to mod and always see the 'need' to do it. One of the ...

Re: Wifi

Could the WiFi config also be setup via SSH?
Maybe a work around for special passwords that cannot be entered at the touchpanel.

good idea, but only if you like to get ABS filament ads the next weeks on nearly every webpage you visit.

Re: Forum Rule

Michael, I have read Vickys post different. I think the forum software does not allow this filetype and this has good reasons (binary files on forums are hazard to some operating systems).

You could rename the .bin file to .somethingElse and try this.

Re: BuildTak works good, if you can cope with it!

Do you have any guidance on the specifics of ABS slurry reconditioning? i.e. what proportion of ABS to acetone, how much to apply, etc? Does it matter much? I did a quick google search on reconditioning buildtak but didn't get any hits. Seems like a good thing to know. Good question, i asked it mys...

Re: BuildTak works good, if you can cope with it!

I've never used the Buildtak plate that came with my N1. I prefer a flexible surface to print on, that way you can bend the plate and the part often pops right off. That's good to know, but why don't you just open a separate thread about it. This thread is intended to show that there is no problem ...

Re: BuildTak works good, if you can cope with it!

Update: Currently I print a 10KG spool. Without having an accurate measure I think I'm done with 7KG of that spool already. I lubricated the printer between two prints and again did not take care of the dripping oil wich made cleaning the bed necessary. I have enclosed pics of the BT surface before ...
