Re: Help Loose Extruder

Heat gun worked okay to help clean the PLA off. But I snapped the threads off the long bolt during assembly. Weird because it wasn't tight and looked like I could spin it several more times before it was to tighten up. Does Raise sell the bolt separately or just with the V2 hotend? I wonder if boili...

Re: Help Loose Extruder

Well that lasted for 3 months and then I think the extruder hit a part. It leaks all over the place its coming out just under the vents.

What is a good way to clean all of the PLA off of these parts? Put them in the oven, a heat gun?

Ordered a V2 hotend incase this turns out to be bent or damaged.

Re: Wall of shame prints (print failures)

The worst print fail I had was a couple of months ago that would have resulted in a heck of alot of damage if I hadn't stopped it in time. I was printing out 1 of the 24 parts that make up a BB-8 inside sphere. Because the shape of these parts they were hands down my most difficult print. They even ...

Re: Bad adhesion of Buildtak

What bed temps are you using? I can't get nothing, and I mean nothing to stick to the buildtak unless I use a raft. But even then I put down quite a bit of elmers glue sticks. So you might want to get used to buying a 30 pack of elmers glue sticks as you'll use them left and right. Also if my bed te...

Re: Eiffel Tower - N2 Plus

Amazing how it printed out the rails all the details of the steel without seeing stringing of material everywhere. I've seen this printer do stuff that should have been impossible.

Re: Help Loose Extruder

Thanks! This was exactly the information I was looking for. Just the basics of how these parts are fasten together so I can clean it up. Sometimes I notice some brownish oil has fell onto the part. I'm assuming its grease from the aluminum rods that is working its way down via gravity and ending on ...

This dome is 3D printed by the rest of the droid is pretty much all alumimun, its radio controlled, weights about 200 pds, costs around $10,00...

Re: My Star Wars prints.

When I started this project I first went for a dome file. This is back when I had print lifting off the bed. Here is a failed print that almost made it to 3 days and failed at layer 1880 of 2221 layers. The reason the time lapse shows is the print lifted off the bed and the extruder knocked it way o...

Over time I noticed my left extruder is coming loose. Now its really, really lose to the point I can spin it by hand. This is not good as prints are failing from this hitting parts. http://i.imgur.com/N3wwFVL.jpg I've tightened the top allen screw but it looks like that just holds the heat grills in...

Re: My son

Wow 220 hour print. I suppose you had to go thru 2 spools. Longest print I've done is 102 hours.

You could adjust the scale to 5 foot and print out what he'll look like grown up.

Re: LCD screen burn in

Man that sucks. Mine runs nearly nonstop anymore. This should have a screensaver mode. I hope they do a firmware update to make this happen. So I guess until that happens maybe the best thing to do is not leave it on the home screen when its printing. Randomly select the print page, tune and other p...
