Re: Printing flush text as a second color

When you exported the parts did you happen to suppress each part and export them one at a time or did you open them in a new instance and export them from there? If you suppressed them they should still own the same origin point for ideaMaker to reference. For the text being a different color, you w...

Re: What to do about edge curl?

I would agree with almost everything EldRick said except for the last part. Rick, it seems you missed the part where this is a chain-mail print, making one part at a time is not exactly an option! To put it simply, increase cooling by any means for PLA, reduced heating temps top cover off and front ...

Re: How do I calibrate the two nozzles

Hi 3DPProfessor, It sounds like you are attempting to print dual extrusion with two different parts but you do not want them to be attached to each other once the print is done? If this is correct then I would not recommend you try this path as it will only lead to either the parts sticking together...

Re: Source for PEI sheet with adhesive

I would heed caution on dropping a hot plate into a freezer with a warp part on it. You may end up buying a new PEI sheet and glass plate combo!

Re: Source for PEI sheet with adhesive

Hi EldRick,

Please let us know how your testing comes out after switching over the build plate. I have a PEI sheet at home for my N2 and it works quite well. That being said I do not tend to print full volume and in a wide assortment of materials.

Re: L Nozzle Default Flow Rate 94

The controls on the front of the printer read the code and give a value based on the ones prescribed in the slicer. My post stated "change the material type on the printer. " but that is meant to say "change material type in the slicer". The printer, for the most part, has no clu...

Re: how to adjust the distance between the feed gear and the guide

Hi Jab136,

There is not much of an adjustment you can do but you can try to shift the motor on the extruder block. You could also shim the motor over on one side to bring the drive gear closer to the bearing. This will put a slight angle on the motor and drive gear but this is fine.

Re: Dual N2 with Right extruder removed - load single or dual firmware?

Hi EldRick,

In the past we would package both single and dual into the same update, as of right now I would recommend loading the Dual and keeping the printer up to date with its inherent code. I do not have reason to believe loading the single extrusion will cause any issues with the printer.

Re: Error in Cura printer definition = underextrusion

This is the setting in ideaMaker as a standard for PLA, it may be an idea to leave it as is and see if you actually do get under extrusion.

Re: thinking about active cooling options for the motors

I believe using stick on heat sinks would be more effective than using a fan to blow warm air onto the motor. What is the root cause that necessitate the need for extra cooling on the motors directly? Have you had problems with grind out or something?

Re: Raise3D Standard vs Premium PLA

Hi Asawal, There really are not any "Issues" with the Standard material we carry, it is more of just a difference in surface finish and durability that is the main difference between the two types. The print settings are nearly identical and we do not differentiate between them in our soft...

Re: Strange habit with BRIM

On the surface, the G-Code looks good from what I viewed. I do not believe you need quite so many lines of brim though. 4-5 should do just fine.

Re: Trouble with overhang printing

PolyMax tends to have a really low softening point to it which can cause problems over longer prints. I personally really like PolyMax because of its ability to take a beating. (Helps for wearable's and cosplay items).

Re: single layer walls in ideaMaker

Hi harrisonaero,

There was a post about this a while back but it comes down to this. The slicer needs to make all walls with an inner and outer wall or surface unless running with Vase mode on. In which it will choose the outer layer as the only layer.

At the moment I do not believe we can have the hotend drop temp while paused. There may be a function I am missing off the top of my head.

I agree with Rog, if you were still having height issues you would not see this much under extrusion this far up from the bed with the part.

Re: Surface quality on tall prints

Hi basilfawlty, The problem of the part wobbling is not really a problem with the printer so much as the part/material limitations. In almost all printers you will encounter this if you take a thin hollow object and make it tall. Some wobble of the printer could cause the part to have a degraded qua...

At the moment, the quick way to default to the right extruder is to upload the model, select "View" in the icon bar and select the model. This will give you the option of selecting the model as a left or right hotend model. Once this is done you will need to change the support and raft set...
