Re: What on **** caused my N2 Dual the throw a new glass plate out of the closed door after 7 hours printing?

Z axis calibration is setting the extruder nozzle height above the build platform. Raise3D provide a feeler gauge, I prefer to use a piece of 80gsm photocopy paper. Z hop is a setting that moves the platform down before the nozzle makes a non-print move, then returns to the previous z position as it...

Re: What on **** caused my N2 Dual the throw a new glass plate out of the closed door after 7 hours printing?

This happened to my N1 and I was using binder clips at the time. It only seems to happen when I'm printing multiple items at at time. My assumption is that there is a nozzle collision with one of the parts, which doesn't happen on single parts because the plastic is still warm and soft. But when it ...

Re: "Model out of range" despite being in range

It's hard to tell from the picture, but it looks like it's too close to the front. The white 'model boundary box' is showing underneath the 'platform extent box'. Check it from top view. If you change the colour of the extruder (using the view option) to say blue, it makes it easier to see how the t...

Re: skirt around grouped objects?

Vicky is right, I do this all the time. Just position the parts less than 2X the 'Skirt Offset Distance' apart, which I think is 3mm by default. But then I thought about it and an easier way is to just increase the S.O.D. to say 10mm and then you won't have to be so fussy with part placement. In cas...

Re: Major Update & Improvements for Pro2 and N Series

You're welcome 1. See my post http://forum.raise3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=2866#p18450 2. Yes, I think it's a worthwhile improvement. I was using an overhead gantry for the filament reel, so that it didn't have to feed the filament through the guide tubes. It was the only way I could get TPU to ...

Re: Printing directly on the bed without a RAFT?

I have an N1 and I never use a raft. Where possible I print directly onto glass - PETG and TPU work well like this. PLA usually needs Buildtak or some such to get adhesion. I take care levelling the bed, using 1 thickness of regular 80gsm inkjet printer paper as the 'feeler gauge'. Then print the fi...

Re: Raise3d N1 printing problem

That area that looks like it has a pattern to it, is probably caused by the mechanism resonating. There is quite a lot of mass in the extruder system, which can cause wavy lines when moving at speed. Try slowing down the print speed and see if that improves it. Also, there looks to be some over-extr...

Re: Are PTFE feeding tubes worth the extra cash more than regular/ stock tubes

Take a look here https://www.captubes.com/ I have this Capricorn PTFE and it's really slippery, more so than regular PTFE. This material works better than the factory-fit stuff that R3D supply, especially for TPU. I had to buy it in the US last year, but they are now selling it in the UK through E3D...

The same as I mentioned in my earlier post, an i7-based laptop with an SSD running Win 7, circa 2013 vintage. The SSD is only important for the file saving part of course.

Re: Loads of New Exciting Updates available for download

With IM version 3.3.0 and using the same Groot model scaled to 165%, it sliced it in 14.3 secs and finished saving the file 26 seconds later. That particular Thingiverse stl file had 830 non-manifold edge errors, which IM auto-repaired in 22 secs. Overall I didn't see much improvement in slicing tim...

Re: Stringing on N1 Dual

I have never had PETG jam in the extruder. I have a top-fed filament holder, so the perspex top is off during printing, which probably keeps the cold-end temperature from getting into the soft region. I run it with the fan covers on usually, only take them off if I have bridges in the design. I'm us...

Re: Preheat from Computer in Ideamaker

Yes, Vicky. That would be really nice. I use different materials as well, but I still would think it would be nice to have both nozzles to heat up to the at least the lower temperature of the materials I use and the bed to a set temp and have them heat at once from the computer. Then when the print...

I have a Dual N1 and have never seen stringing like this with PLA. I haven't had stringing that bad with PETG and that filament is much worse than PLA for stringing. I suspect you have a bad reel of PLA

Re: Y-Axis Home position overshoots build plate edge

I have an N1, so there may be a difference between models, but I just slide my build plate forward a mm or two then the nozzle homes on the plate. During priming it goes through an up/down routine that is usually very effective at getting the nozzle cleaned up and ready to go. With the nozzle homing...
