Re: 38 cm Bridge

lol, excellent, You may want to increase print speed - can help keep filament tight while making huge bridges. Hmm could a so add another cooling fan with a duct! I had my buildplate set to 65 degrees, that was softening the bridge; I turn it to ambient temp and now it is stiffer. I also want to im...

38 cm Bridge

I was printing a prototype of an insert for a machine. The part is quite large, about 38cm so I have to place it diagonally on the machine. I overlooked an overhang and didn't turn on the supports, nevertheless the machine managed to pull of a bridge of almost 38 cm.... I am quite impress :o IMG_822...

Re: Raft top layer not flat/sticking to model

I am not an expert, but I will say what I think: You are having flow issues; take a look at the attached picture. What you see in red are delaminated strings that did not attached properly due to be not thick enough, therefore those extruded lines do not stick to what is bellow. Probably you don't n...

When you upgrade ideamaker your settings are restored to default settings. If you post your current settings and a picture of the issue we may be able to help you more.

Optimize printing sequence for multiple objects

Hello, When you are printing multiple objects, the software set the sequence to go in the same order that each object was placed, which might not be the most optimal way to do it. Currently I am printing +100 small objects, and the extruder goes back and forth, instead of a "grid-like' manner (...

Re: Silly: YouTube vid of drunk guys trying to remove support from a helmet?

I know that video. It was a Lulzbot TAZ 4 review by WTFBBQ Gaming. I was about to buy a TAZ, but then I found Thruster's videos about the Raise3D printers, and here I am.

Anyhow, here is the link to the video: https://youtu.be/BlNJ5QP5TYk

Re: Test: Cylinders Tilted at 45 degrees

Very useful information, I learned a couple of things that I will use with my models.
What pillar size and density works for you? how many layer of dense support do you add?

Thank you :)

Re: Black hard goop on Nozzle and Heater Body

Worry not; you have to heat it and the blob will burn away, clean results. I place mine on the stove, next to a flame and leave it there for about 15 min, occasionally move it (obviously not with your bare hands) because melted plastic may ooze.

I finally made my print with 10mm/s in x/y and with 5mm/s in x.

Good to know. What else you did to solve the issue? just settings adjustment? or something else?

Re: Stops extruding after first Shell

Not to much experience with elastic filaments, but what i noticed is that any amount of tension between the spool and the feeder stretch the filament, causing imperceptible issues that eventually leads the print to failure. Try to relieve any tension and stretching; you can create a better spool hol...

Re: Raise3D did it!

Don't know if this is a serious challenge or not, but I think it shows that Raise3D printers are among the best in printing precision. No other FDM printer (besides my N1) have reported a successful print of this spinner: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYuLVN3YHw8 One guy reported success on a Str...

Re: What causes filment to curl back around nozzel and stick to it?

Although you are cleaning your nozzle with a guitar string, it is very likely that you have burned debris inside of the nozzle, very thin crust. The filament curling up is the tattletale symptom. it is extremely difficult to remove those crust and debris from inside of the nozzle, you have to disass...

Re: Anyidea what Im doing wrong? Polymaker PC Plus and Support goes chewed up after cm or 2

I have never used polysupport, but I have use a lot of Polymaker's PC-Max and Plus. Here are my two cents: Firts; set your bed temp to 110 degrees, it works better than 100. Also lower your movement speed from 100 mm/s to 40 mm/s (rapid movements may hit your print) and enable Z-hop. I set my print ...

Re: How to I clear out caramlised burnt nylon from a jammed hot end?

Did you try heating it before unscrewing it? Also, The Raise3D printer is too good keeping the heat inside while it is closed, maybe too good; probably the nylon and pla softened inside of the cool zone jaming it. Try to install a thermometer inside of the printer and open it once in a while to avoi...

Re: Advice on best print oritentation, supports and settings

I have used Polymax PLA before; not so good for support material, it sticks to the print and is not so easy to remove.
For complex parts that require lots of support, I have had more luck with Polymaker's PC-Max. It's tough and the supports can be remover in a more clean manner.

Re: Prints Welded to Raft

Check the raft gap from model distance on raft settings and the first layer height. What works for me is a 0.10 mm gap and a 0.3 mm first layer height.
