Re: Need advanced help with gantry problem

Maybe you would like to read my post here: http://forum.raise3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=6666&p=26601#p26601 I don't believe that I am the only one with a printer that suffers (suffered) from this. Also, I like doing the gantry adjustment in a different way than what is recommended by Raise3D...

Re: Connect to printer remotely?

OK calm down now. Everybody is free to do as he likes. I just wrote how I did it and feel comfortable with. If people find this difficult, then don't bother. About security: Your remote desktop setup isn't fully secure either. It is a far more common "specie" behind an IP address than a Ra...

Re: Connect to printer remotely?

?? When and where do you enter the printer's serial number into Ideamaker to make a connection? What version of RaisePack and matching Ideamaker does this? I use ideaMaker Ver. 3.1.0.1545 and latest RaisePack. As far back as I remember I have seen this setup window for adding a new connection to a ...

Re: Connect to printer remotely?

I am normally not arguing against security on the Internet, but I honestly believe this is paranoia. We are talking about opening a single port here. A port that is under full control of the application SW running on the pcDuino. I don't know the protocol used for the printer communication, but the ...

Re: Connect to printer remotely?

I wouldn't think that searching for Raise3D printers on port 31625 on random IP addresses would be the first priority of evil hackers :-). The printers might receive some "noise" on port 31625 from the wide Internet, but not something that would be interpreted as valid Raise3D printer comm...

Re: Is my Pro2 preheating correctly?

If Raise3D uses a motion controller firmware that is a modified version of Marlin, then they will be forced to share their modifications. That is the condition for using SW (Marlin) published under the GNU General Public License. So, as Raise3D wants to be a serious trustworthy company, I have no do...

Re: LIN_ADVANCE = better extrusion control

Just want to say thanks for all the hard work and improvements you are making in firmware for the group. I would love if Raise 3D worked with you on the new Pro series. You are very welcome.

Re: LIN_ADVANCE = better extrusion control

PID autotune worked OK for me, but the temperature wasn't updated in the touch display. This was caused by the temperature reporting format from the motion controller wasn't updated (or rather downgraded to the old format that the touch computer expects). I have now corrected this in the firmware fi...

Re: Motion controller blower noise reduction by Vernon Barry

There is no strict need for a regulator, just use two small 0.5W 10 ohm resistors in series with the blower wires. This has worked for me for more than a year: http://forum.raise3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1337&p=11918&hilit=blower#p11918

Re: 3rd party PLA clicking/heat creep?

Check your hotend for a blockage. Heat the hotend and push down the steel rod that came with the printer. This, and also check the condition of the nozzle itself. You might have a damaged nozzle tip because the tip accidentally hit something. A damaged nozzle orifice will not prevent you from makin...

Re: PETG Settings

Model fan: It all depends on what you are printing. If you need great details, rely on bridging and good overhangs, then, at least with PrimaSelect PETG you need to compromise on optimal layer bonding either by reducing the nozzle temperature or adding fan cooling. Of course, if you are printing a s...

Re: Gantry offsets

I am very happy with my current print quality, but realistically speaking, I don't know how much the tighter bushings contributes. Intuitively it cannot be good for print quality with large play in the system. Maybe it is mostly psychological, there is no more rattling from the system when printing ...

Re: Gantry offsets

As I wrote, gradually increasing the shim thickness in steps of 50 µm until free movement was obtained over the full print area. If bearings and bushings have significant play, then this method cannot be used, of course. Currently I have no play in bearings and bushing I can feel or hear. Maybe thes...

Gantry offsets

I would like to report an "issue" here, that I think is relevant for users struggling with the printer head not moving freely over the print area. Over time I have gradually reduced the play in the printer head and the gantry by replacing the stock bearings, bushings and rods with better q...

Re: PETG Settings

I have a single extruder printer that has a dedicated model cooling fan on the right side. I use a custom fan/duct, but also the stock printer has this model cooling fan that can be controlled from firmware. For a dual nozzle printer I guess you have to adjust the air flow by the small flap on the b...

Re: PETG Settings

The reason I went "down" to 230 deg was to improve overhangs, but if you don't need good overhang performance then it is probably better to prioritize good layer bonding. In my experience, going below 230 gives worse layer bonding and better overhangs; going above 230 deg gives better laye...

Re: Integrated Filament Run-out sensor

That's exactly true. It is the curved shape of the filament that creates the friction. I have tried to mitigate the wear by extending the 4 mm PTFE tubing all the way down into the casing. That means that most of the "straightening" take place inside the PTFE tubing. The PTFE tubing last f...

Re: Integrated Filament Run-out sensor

I used a Sharp sensor with a Near Infra Red LED at 950 nm. If you mask half of the filament diameter and place the the optical sensor accurately, then you can rely on refraction to obtain a quite good discrimination.

This is my own design with optical sensors. I use the P2 connector on the main board and I suspect Raise3D will do the same for their optical sensor offering.
