Re: N2 Touchscreen not reacting to touch on it's left side

I have the same issue. Contacted support and they quoted me $450 for a new touch screen. Like others said, it works with a mouse. How something like this is not covered by an extended warranty when so many people are reporting the issue is beyond me.

Re: Cannot get a good print

I believe I have the issues resolved now. Three successful prints in a row and much cleaner. I am also using the default settings with only a couple of changes. Changes made: 1. Purchased Hatchbox PLA. The print is smooth and easily removes from the bed. Barely any pressure is required and no tools...

Do you leave your printer on and filament loaded?

Title says it all, but wondering what you guys do on a day to day basis. Do you leave the printer on? Do you leave filament loaded? Is there any benefit to unloading it and turning the printer off when not actively printing?

Re: Hot End Filament Leak

Thanks for all the info. I think you're right and it's a bit of live and learn on my end. Ideally I wouldn't ever need to take the thing apart! I also wish I had purchased some thermal paste to use as that would have helped seal off the throat tube to the heater block. My new hot ends came in and th...

Well, the last time I did that, this happened:

Re: Hot End Filament Leak

it is leaking up at the throat tube as expected. Pretty significantly. Do you (or anyone) know anything I can seal that off with? The seal is the metal-to-metal contact between the nozzle and the end of the throat tube inside the block. You need to screw the throat tube into the block far enough th...

Re: Hot End Filament Leak

Thanks for the input. I figured I would take everything apart again and try one more time. I found that the throat tube screwed an extra quarter turn past where it should finally line up with the heating block. This caused the extruder nozzle to sit up a bit more (as it should I guess), but it left ...

Re: Hot End Filament Leak

What's weird is the tool I used to line up the heating block suggested I should not go any tighter.

However, when I tried to go tighter with another hot end, this happened:

Re: Hot End Filament Leak

I followed the instructions in the video and disassembled the entire hot end, cleaned it and cleared out any stuck filament, and reassembled it. The video is inconsistent with the materials we received because, in the video, the extruder is not flush with the heating element. In both units we receiv...

Hot End Filament Leak

Hi all, Recently cleaned my hot end and swapped out the extruder head because of frequent jamming and filament leaking. I started another print and noticed it is leaking from the middle screw (left in pic) and also between the heat sink and heating element. Any ideas about what to do? Brian IMG_2018...

Re: N2 slices are using both filaments when my settings say one

Just wanted to follow-up to this in case anyone else has the same issue. We had all of the settings set to right-only, but there is another setting that you might not see when using the printer. https://i.imgur.com/30ilVdM.png If one of these contradicts what you have in your slicing settings, it wi...

N2 slices are using both filaments when my settings say one

Hi all, We have an N2 and N2+ here at my school and I haven't had issues with this problem until recently. In some prints, I am trying to use the left or right extruder exclusively, but it seems that the printer is slicing it to use both. I have double checked that all settings only are set to the r...
