Re: Model release

I have used hairspray in every printer from day 1 of owning, and never, ever, ever, had overspray get on the rods and bearings or gum up. This is year 3 on the original N2 and N1 of the same year, both with hairspray sprayed inside the printer at the bed at close distance (to reduce overspray) and ...

Re: Palette+ and N2 Set up

I would say no, you cannot use the top enclosure as shown. I'm not saying you cannot use an enclosure with the palette (I know your intent is ABS and ABS "like" materials), however, that path and the bend radius if all you did was drill a hole in the lid isn't going to cut the mustard. Th...

Re: Model release

I have removed the buildtak on both my N2 and N1 ... it was the first thing I did before the first print. Hairspray on Glass works for TPU, PETG, PLA and I think ABS, but I dont print ABS. Then, let the plate cool to Room Temp (ie, under 30c) and it should literally pop off itself, or with a slight...

Re: Alternate support material suggestion

I love coming back to old threads. Especially ones that VB contributed to :) So, last night i tried using Polysmooth as support on the Palette+. I FINALLY got the P+ working nearly flawlessly, after almost a year of struggle (all self induced, as you can imagine.) SO, the result? MISERABLE. I was us...

Re: Cannot get a good print

I have a N2 printer. I took a small level and placed it in all corners, sides and the center. The level was visually in the same spot in all 9 positions. The settings you provided have been working great for my N2. Thanks a lot. The only failure on any item was a print that needed supports and I di...

Re: Cannot get a good print

... Based on the prior comments I created a template with the following settings and have had 3 successes in a row and 0 failures. I will be printing more today to see if the success continue. That way I will feel more comfortable trying a 10+ hour print. Slicer I use is IdeaMaker. Layer Height: .2...

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...

Re: ED3 Volcano Compatibility? Settings?

I will start another thread with more info this weekend if i am up too it. But this is my first few minutes with ABS at 260c and 0.6 nozzle and layer height 0.45mm. Speed in Simplify3d is 60mm/s, outline 50%. https://youtu.be/ehmQ_lKkmu8 So a year or two later, are you still using the Solex nozzles...

Re: Broken ribbon… again… I think

My N2 Plus is back in business, with a replacement cable that is currently running outside the umbilical. (Want to see a day plus print work before going in and re-routing it.) Is there any posted information of replacing the cables? My N1 cable broke mid last year. The support team sent me a new o...

Re: Getting ready for MRRF 2018

Printed on the experimental but shown for scale jammed inside my N2+ so you can see how much bigger it is than the build area of the current series of Raise 3D printers. Printed in 8 hours and 41 minutes and used 118 meters of filament. Printed at 0.4mm layer height using a 0.8mm nozzle. Outstandin...

Re: Getting ready for MRRF 2018

The stack of "waste" material next to that robot is pretty amazing. Do you think that you put about 1/2 of your filament into that tower? Maybe not half, but yes, a good percentage. I know the new version of Chroma has settings to decrease that tower (and speed the print) by trying to use...

Re: Raise3D N2+ Dual: recommended Firmware Version?

I have had problems with uploading files - or connecting to the printer via wife - on both my N1 and N2. It happens mostly when i try to scroll through the prints and get to screen 2 or 3 of the menu and the connection is lost. I've had 3 different routers in the 2 years I've owned the printers, an...

Re: Getting ready for MRRF 2018

I have a Palette+ with my N2. I am no where near as good at printing as JetGuy is ... but I've had mild success with it. I did have a little bleed in a print last night - but that could have been my fault with loading the material improperly. All in all, i love it - i just dont think it's perfect ye...

Re: How fast Do you print? And how fast Can one print?

Speed isnt why the part was fragile. The nozzle size is. I've been doing a LOT of vase mode printing. I bought a 0.8mm nozzle from the R3D shop for this purpose. the exact same print with the exact same settings using a 0.4mm nozzle is flimsy while the 0.8mm is nice and robust. I use them as candy ...

Re: How fast Do you print? And how fast Can one print?

I print a lot of very large parts, so I've tried to push speed in ways similar to zemlin. The main thing that I've noticed is that over 60mm/s in any material, the prints become noticeably more fragile. Printing slower than 60mm/s definitely improves strength for me. Speed isnt why the part was fra...
