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.

Are you using a socket over the nozzle to grab it or are you using pliers?

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.

Re: Setting the height of the build plate

Hi RaiserDog, From what you have stated you are adjusting the nozzle height after something like a nozzle swap. For this you do not have to begin a print to check nozzle height but simply move the print head to X/Y home and then home the Z. From here disable the motors and move the print head to ove...

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...
