Re: Filament Out Sensor

The one I reference about is mechanical, the filament separates the bearings, when the filament runs out the bearings move closer which activates the switch, not sure if its a NO or NC contact but that may work.

Re: Printer Freezes during printing

My printer has started to freeze about every other print. Anyone else experiencing? I was running old 0.7 something touchpanel firmware and would only have a freeze once a month maybe, I recently updated to the latest and now its freezing every other print. Also, what can you do to recover when it f...

Re: Raft top layer not flat/sticking to model

SOLVED!!!!! Check your bed height / nozzle distance. Turns out to be simply the bed height adjustment was off. Not sure how that happened as my screw has an upgraded spring and a nut on the bottom preventing it from turning clockwise. I was puzzled as why layer 4 was not adhering to the layer 3, loo...

Re: Raft top layer not flat/sticking to model

So swapped out the entire hotend with a brand new one and its worse - so its not the nozzle cleanliness. I still think its something changed in ideamaker since I never had this issue before, the rafts always came off cleanly. The raft has two dense top layers, the first one is not bonding to the und...

Re: Raft top layer not flat/sticking to model

Thanks for the help, I'll swap nozzles this weekend since I have a spare and then clean this one and let you know. Really appreciate it!

Re: Raft top layer not flat/sticking to model

I tried to print a file that was already in the N2 storage, it previously printed fine, the top of the raft was smooth and it easily detached from the piece. Now its doing the same thing as my other prints, so I think its not a setting issue in Ideamaker, since the file previously printed fine. I'm ...

Re: Resume does not turn on cooling fan

Glad to see its fixed. I'm still afraid to update, when I first got my printer I immediately updated the firmware to 1.1.3 and the hell began, after about a week downgraded back to 1.1.1 (which the machine came with) and its worked great since......so if not broke don't fix :) Where can I find old f...

Raft top layer not flat/sticking to model

Raft is not longer printing flat, there are waves that then leave 'strings' of filament attached to the model. Used to love how cleanly the rafts pulled away from the models, now I'm getting wavy raised areas like a run or two of filament isn't laying down. Not sure if its a issue with Ideamaker (I ...

Re: Filament Out Sensor

I went with a low filament sensor from http://endlessparts.com until someone much smarter than me can come up with a way to have the printer to pause once the filament runs out. Here is a video of the sensor in action: https://youtu.be/wSbgQOzrPt0 Part is available here: https://www.endlessparts.com...

Resume does not turn on cooling fan

Have a third fan hooked up to the 'cooling' fan (third connector in from left - next to always on fans), however had a power failure this morning, R3D N2 did a great job resuming the print, however I noticed the cooling fan was no longer 'on'. Paused it an move the fan over to one of the always on a...

Filament Out Sensor

Has anyone gotten a simple filament out sensor to pause the Raise3D N2? I know R3D was working on a sensor that would detect that filament was out, jammed, etc, but they've been working on it for sometime. I also see the firmware is still 1.1.1 so seems they've stopped really implementing any enhanc...

Re: Clicking sound on Z axis

Once in a while I'll get clicking at the building plate connection. Only does it for certain z movements, and usually not for long. Troublesome but hasn't caused a problem yet.

Why would I change the build plate settings, they were correct at 305x305. I know how to work around stuff, just wanted to let R3D they had an issue.

BTW - Ideamaker 2.5 fixed this issue for me

ideamaker 2.4 won't allow full build volume

I have a long model, that will fit diagonally within the 305x305 build volume of my R3D. The older version allowed me to fit it without any issues, the new version will not. I even loaded in an old idea file with the right half of my model (model is split in half), which is the same width/length as ...

Why is shipping so much on Raise3D store? Tried to purchase 2 rolls of filament and they want $24 to ship from California to Maryland?

Re: 303mm Diameter Print Time Lapse 26+ Hrs to 52 seconds.

Did you slice with S3D or IM? When I sliced with IM it had supports for the entire ring, so 70+ hrs.
