Re: Broken Build Plate

Just like Trhuster, I use a PEI sheet, and it works very good. I replaced my Buildtak sheet more than 9 times until I decided that it is not durable enough nor suitable for large ABS prints. So far I have printed +300 hours on a 1mm PEI sheet and Hatchbox ABS, no complains. That might be a quick fix...

Re: only raise filament curls on nozzle

What are your settings? bed and extruder temp.
Also, does it curls immediately after being extruder or after a while?

Re: PrimaSelect Flex - Black filament

Thank you, all that effort is appreciated.

Regarding the feeding method; did you had issues with the gear skipping? any special setup?

Re: having issues with curved thin angled walls

What are your temperature settings and print speed?

I also print with white ABS, and got similar results when printing too cold. For ABS, it works better when the new layer of filament is lay on top of one still hot/warm, it fuses/flow better

Re: Raise 3d N2 Plus dual nozzle for sale - $2800

Hi guys, Selling my barely used N2 Plus with dual nozzles. Got it to print large projects for a client, and now that the project is done I don't use it as much anymore. It's taking too much room in my garage, so looking to sell. Local pickup only please. Don't want to deal with shipping. I priced i...

Re: Just Released N2 Pro

I really like this new PRO series, I am a two year owner of a N2, and it is still working as good as the first day. There are still 2 things that I would like that they also addressed: Buildplate max temp and Spool Size. IMHO it would be nice that the buildplate reach 130 degrees, not just 110. That...

I have used Hatchbox and eSun. eSun black gets brittle if printed too hot.
I prefer Hatchbox, but they have serious supply issues so I'm giving up on them.


What temperatures do you use for both?. I really like Hatchbox PLA, maybe it is worth giving a try to its ABS

Amazing results.
The biggest I had print is 11", and the print cracked. Did you had the same issues with the print in your images? it looks great, what material is it?

Re: Your favorite ABS

I really like IC3D ABS, natural (beige). Overall, among all the types (pla, pc, abs), colors and brands, this is the one which have gave me the best surface finish results and supports removal. But yeah, still kind of tricky to get proper buildplate adhesion.

Re: PC mini clog after PLA

As someone that mainly prints with PC and then PLA, my advice is that the load/unload function is not the most adequate way to switch between those two materials. The unload function drags material back to the cold zone, which sticks to the tube like a thin inner wall. I would suggest to dissasemble...

Re: Engine Cylinder head

My 2 cents. Probably the cause of the shift was the head hitting the support material. as per your images, it looks weak and probably it wobble. Try to modified the support angle, remove the 0 angle and add -45 degrees and +45 degrees, your support will be generated as a grill of tangential lines, i...

Well, is a test that involves low forces, around 5-10N. The fixtures were made to evaluate the disassemble force for a small component.
The final results are only valid with fixtures made of steel, but the 3D printed ones are good for concept proof.

Fixtures for Tensile Testing Machine

Before spending >$5,000 in fixtures for a Tensile Strength test, I wanted to confirm that the design for the tooling is viable. The design of the tooling took me about a day, and the printing process a couple of days. Anyhow, in less than 3 days I had working prototypes of my tools and then I procee...

Re: Will I produce poor quality objects if I have the top cover on the printer while printing PLA?

Hello and welcome to the community!. Well, PLA is a "low" temperature material; the cooler the environment the better for the printing process. Too much heat and the filament will soften, driving it impossible for the motors to push it through the extruder. The acrylic cover of the printer...

Re: Mazinger Z

No idea Vicky, i have been out of the loop for quite long time.
By the way, the robot is still missing an important part; inside of the head goes a small airplane, that due to its size and thin details have been difficult to print. I will post it when I manage to get a successful print.

A 400mm tall robot. eSun silver PLA, and painted with acrylic paints (those small bottles that you can get at wallmart for 76c each). eSUN PLA is a very good cheap/good-looking option, but still Hatchbox PLA ...
