Re: Raise3D Pro2 Plus fexible Fila (TPU)

Have you tried using a filament oiler? I couldn't get TPE to print without it. Flexibles seem to stick too much to the filament guide tube. Without an oiler, it binds right after in enters the tube. Ah - I forgot about that. I need to keep the filament slack - the tension of turning the spool does ...

Re: Raise3D Pro2 Plus fexible Fila (TPU)

On my N2 with Bondtech I found I needed to use a very light pressure on the drive roller to feed flexible reliably. I also ended up running a pretty high flow rate - about 120%. I printed Ninjaflex with great results which is 85A.

Re: Is Unload necessary?

"In my experience you can't drive out rigid filament by loading flexible behind it." In my experience that works fine. It's "Possible" that I didn't actually try to push out rigid filament with flexible. Perhaps it just sounded like a bad idea and I made an assumption. :shock:

Re: Is Unload necessary?

I often don't unload, but sometimes it's necessary. When changing from a rigid to flexible filament, for example. In my experience you can't drive out rigid filament by loading flexible behind it.

Re: 6 loose screws ...

The free play in the ball screw nuts can cause some slight inconsistency in printing, more noticeable when printing very thin layers with z-lift enabled at retraction. See this thread for a printable fix: http://forum.raise3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=9804 - assuming the Pro uses the same ball nut...

Re: Problem with ABS printing

I have printed plenty of ABS without issues. You have not provided any information about your print settings. Brand of material, nozzle size, temperatures, print speeds, all of these things can come into play. We need to know what you are doing, before we can take a guess at what you might be doing ...

Re: 1.75 PETG with carbon fibre

Something you might want to try - rather than 100% infill, I've had good luck with 9999 bottom layers when I want a solid part. I find the construction is more seamless.

You have to screw it all the way in until it seats on the face of the throat tube creating a metal-to-metal seal.

Re: Pro2 Plus with 1mm nozzle setting

Ahh nice. I was under the impression those nozzles did not fit the standard V2 Hotend They are shorter than the Raise nozzles, but they fit fine. They even work with the Silicone Socks. Not a perfect fit, but they work. Print speed with a 1mm nozzle needs to be slowed down just due to the volume of...

Re: Drying filament under vacuum

I printed nylon recently - ePA. It needed to be dried out. I threw it in the pot and let it sit for about 24 hours. I started printing and had noticeable bubbles in the stream. I went ahead and printed the parts and they turned out OK - but when I was done I put the spool back in the pot and with a ...

Re: Drying filament under vacuum

Thought I'd follow up on my vacuum pump experiences. It hasn't turned out to be a fast process, but the results are great. The moisture content I can achieve is extremely low, and when stored sealed with good, dry desiccant things stay dry for a long time. I have humidity indicator cards like these:...

Re: How to I stop PETG G stringing and jamming my Raise 3d N2 Dual with Dual Bondtech?

While not related to jamming, I disagree with your decision on orientation for printing. You're just starting off on the wrong foot. All those radii and minimal contact area is asking for trouble. Printing it with the big, flat side down will start off far cleaner. I have had zero issues with PETG r...
