Re: Proto Pasta Stainless Steel

For starters, lets make sure you are using a hardened nozzle. If you are using the standard brass, you will most likely need to throw it out now being that the metal in the plastic will have eaten through the nozzle tip and changed the diameter. From there you are on the right track, reducing the fl...

Re: Has any user done anything to address health-related issues during 3D printing?

While not exactly scientific, I have been printing and been around printers for the better part of 9 years now in the FDM desktop market. To date I have not had much in the way of physical health issues related to the emissions of printers. This is with at least 4 years of working and living with pr...

Re: PETG Settings

There will be loss of head from a transfer from the heating plate to the glass and in my experience with my PEI plate at home I loose about an additional 5c because of it. If you still encounter issues with the part lifting from the raft you may want to adjust the raft gap from model setting in the ...

Re: Not reaching temperature

If there is an intermittent connection in the ribbon cable this can cause temperature variance. Replacement would be advised in that case. For SebZed I would request a picture of the Breakout board on the print head to see if there is any damage to the board being that a screw loosening helped appar...

Re: N1 printer bed sensor

Hi Deepspaceobject,

We currently use mechanical end stops for the Z axis homing procedure, they are adjusted by an offset screw on the back of the Z gantry.

Re: IDEAMAKER : settings for slicing - How to share them

If you are looking to transfer profiles you can use the Export function when you are in the Select profile screen. This will export all your settings for the slice profile and you can import it using the Import button.

Re: Has any user done anything to address health-related issues during 3D printing?

Generally with that kind of a modification to the printer (cutting a hole and using venting) you will loose warranty and it will affect the printing capability's depending on material being printed. Another method to try would be to drop a fan and filter inside the machine and allow it to filter the...

Re: Buildtak and Glass Build plate questions

Normally the adhesive will come off with the buildtak side, I have not seen it stick to the glass in a while. If it does stick to the glass soap will not work too well. Something more along the lines of Goo-gone would be better to remove the adhesive.

Re: What buildplate is commonly used?

In my experience (around 12 printers in the office running 24/7) we run with buildtak on about 8 of them at any given time. We rarely replace the buildtak because we take caution and round off corners of spatulas. The average length of use for a buildtak is solely based on how well an end user treat...

Re: second clogged extruder, poor support. Disappointed and calling it quits

I have looked in my email system, I have no record of receiving an email from your account. My comments on purchasing a heater rod was in the previous post. Could you check to see if you used the email address of michael.p@raise3d.com if you used just michael@raise3d.com it will not come to me.

Re: Grinding filment = clogged extruder

At this moment, you will need to replace the hotend Assembly. With the throat tube broken off in this way it is unlikely removal of the threads is possible without damage to the rest of the block. The thermocouple needs to be removed first from the heater block then the heater rod will slide out, th...

Re: Grinding filment = clogged extruder

If the brass nozzle is stripping out I would say just get it out by any means to salvage the rest of the print head. You could try applying heat by a heat gun or small torch to loosen up the nozzle and filament. Just be cautions about where you torque off of to not damage the barrel.

Re: Grinding filment = clogged extruder

I would not recommend dropping the hotend into an oven in this case. It would be better to remove the nozzle and heat up the hotend in the printer and then use the metal rod to push out the excess filament. From there reassemble the hotend outside the printer using our normal assembly guide found he...

Re: Printer Lid Height

There is currently no plan on changing the top lid of the N-Series printers. There are a number of non-invasive printable mods out there for the top lid adjustment you might be able to use.
