Re: Raise3D ABS + XY Size compensation

No, sorry Zemlin, I didn't understand your system at first, because I didn't know that by "Offset Compensation" in Simplify3D you were in fact referring to "Horizontal Size Compensation", but that is clear now. I agree that this compensation can be thought of as an offset on all ...

Variable extrusion width.

I like ideaMaker very much as a slicer, but I still mostly use Simplify3D, because Simplify3D keeps adding new and extremely good features that ideaMaker (still) doesn't offer. In Simplify3d 4.0 we got variable extrusion width, called "single extrusion walls" and "single extrusion fil...

Re: Raise3D ABS + XY Size compensation

zemlin, if you can accept that nominal Ø3mm holes becomes Ø1.6 mm, as described in my example above, then I agree, that this feature can be used. If not, then you have to use X/Y compensation instead.

Re: Network spooling to N2 possible w/out ideaMaker?

Many users use WinSCP for transferring files to the printer. It works very well. However, I like the "Uploading Queue" of ideMaker for transferring gcode files to the printer. It allows me to queue a file from the PC in my office. Then I go to my printer in the basement and turn on the pri...

Re: Thermal Runaway Error in standby?

With the official Raise3D firmware you just need to avoid adjusting the temperatures in more steps. You can easily see the problem with the official firmware if you do this: 1. Set the bed temperature to 50 °C using the touchscreen and wait for the bed to reach 50 °C. 2. Adjust the bed temperature t...

Re: Problems with bottom layers

Raise3D PLA sticks very well to Buildtak. What is your z-gap (bed to nozzle-tip distance)? Did you check that your build plate is level? Although I think it is unlikely that your z-gap is larger in the center of the glass plate than in the peripheral, it should be checked. (z-gap is more likely to b...

Re: Raise3D ABS + XY Size compensation

I have argued before, that it is a misconception from Raise3D to put X/Y compensation in printer settings. The relationship between X/Y travel and the number of step-pulses is fixed, in the sense that one full-step is exactly 0.2 mm and one 1/16 micro-step is exactly 12.5 µm. The only parameter that...

Re: Raise3D ABS + XY Size compensation

Tinkerer, I think you are mixing up things here. I assume that you have used a heated bead when printing ABS, probably at 110 °C, as is normally used. Due to the thermal expansion of ABS, your model will therefore always end up be smaller than expected, when it is cooled down and removed from the bu...

Lithophane Lamp

As always, the Raise3D printer did a great job. This is a Lithophane Lamp printed with 0.1 mm layer height in black and white ABS. There's a 1.3W white LED bulb inside, giving 140 Lumen with nearly no heat, so ventilation holes were not necessary. This is my first printed lithophane and I'm really i...

Re: Spool Holder for N2

Strange how people are inventing solutions to imaginary problems :-) Never had any issues with too high load from full 1 kg spools mounted on the std. Raise3D spool holder. I would certainly NOT like to have a spool holder with low friction bearings, that would keep turning from it's inertia after a...

Re: Polymaker PolyFlex - printable? How?

MDVolle, I agree, it is not the way forward to add more complexity on printer level. I think improvements in this field could come from adding more intelligence to the stepper motor driver. The Trinamic driver already measures back-EMF for Stealth Mode control. This measurement should contain inform...

Re: Polymaker PolyFlex - printable? How?

0.8 mm is not the minimal step, it is the x/y distance corresponding to the angle between two motor poles. Imagine a rotor pole "suspended" in the magnetic field from two stator poles. The rotor will position itself in this magnetic field according to the current applied to the electric co...

Re: Polymaker PolyFlex - printable? How?

Well, it's good that Raise3D is taking notes, but it will not be possible for a slicer SW to mitigate ringing, the reason being that the slicer has no idea of the phase of the oscillations, i.e. the position of the ringing. The slicer and the motion controller can limit acceleration, as is already d...

You could try to change the channel that your Access Point uses then and see if it helps. Don't know if there could be strong interference from other WiFi networks in your area that disturbs the communication. There are free apps for the iPhone you can download and "analyze" the wireless e...

Does the printer see the available networks and show them on the display? If not, the try to manually key in the SSID and pass-key of your WiFi access point. I have experienced that the printer not always finds and displays the available WiFi networks, but can still connect if you tell it the SSID. ...

Re: Buildtak problems - nothing sticks to it

Take a look at this:
http://forum.raise3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1543&p=13167#p13149
If the Buildtak "dies" it's probably because you used filament materials not suited for Buildtak. If this happens it is not sufficient to clean it using alcohol.
