Re: Improvements by using TMC2130 driver.

My printers live in the garage, so noise level is way below reliability on my list of priorities. I have dampers on the X and Y motors which eliminates the bite from the singing steppers.

Re: Rotating Ball-Screw nuts

Something like that would be nifty, but I don't see a straightforward way to add that to the machine without impacting the Z-height and needing to drill additional holes in the platform. I envision a simple arm that surrounds the bottom of the ball nut, mates with the flats, and is held in place wit...

Re: Temperature control in the N2(+) enclosure

Looks good. I have printed a lot of the parts I need, but haven't had time to execute yet. I have a heat-trap concept I use for external holes where the inlet and outlet are both below the hole. This means any hot air going into the duct remains in the high spot and limits any convection through the...

Rotating Ball-Screw nuts

On one of the 3 Raise printers I use I watched the ball nut on the Z-axis rotate a few degrees during z-hop moves. This could cause some inconsistency in the layer thickness. I understand that the screws are loose to prevent binding. Thinking about adding some spring washers or o-rings in the nut/bo...

Re: Improvements by using TMC2130 driver.

Hello All I have an N2 Dual. With Bondtech dual extruder. So the question is will I be able to print at a higher speed with these drivers without losing steps? Right now I can print at 50mm/s on any model without issue of losing steps. But if I try and print at 60mm/s it is hit or miss some prints ...

Re: settings

If you are running a 1mm nozzle you are pumping out a huge amount of plastic. You need to slow down to allow the plastic to absorb the energy and melt without drawing too much heat away from the nozzle.

Re: Adjusting Z height while printing

I have changed my bed to a 4-point spring-loaded setup with thumb-screws under the Z-table. If I need to make a small adjustment I can dial it up or down a touch without issue. I used this wave spring to minimize the z height change. I have it nearly fully compressed. https://www.mcmaster.com/#1561t...

Re: ABS warping

You don't need to replace or re-level anything and probably won't even need to adjust the print height - just flip the buildplate over and print on the glass side. I wouldn't place the BuildTak between the glass and the heater - it probably acts as a bit of an insulator. I don't have any data to su...

Also seemingly impossible to find in black for some reason... I bought the last of it from IntServo a couple weeks back. I was going to get 6 spools, but they were sold out at 2 - but I've been checking and have been surprised that they are still out. Amazon still lists it, have you tried ordering ...

Re: having issues with curved thin angled walls

i'm not seeing anything obvious as far as an issue with your process. I'd try slowing down your outer perimeters. FWIW, I print ABS at 270C. I've found that best for structural integrity with both Hatchbox ABS and eSun ABS+. Higher temps won't likely work against you either.

I believe there is some misunderstanding happening here. It's not the hard unless something is seriously wrong. Can you post some photos of how you are trying to get this done?

Re: having issues with curved thin angled walls

It's not clear to me what issue you are pointing out, and your fogged, blurry image is difficult to analyze. Wipe the schmutz off your phone's lens before taking a photo - that should help. I can't tell if I'm looking at the top or bottom of the part. If you have a defect happening in just one area,...

Re: Raise3d N2 Clogged nozzle with Wood Filament

I don't understand your question. What is "The End" that you want to push out? With things heated up, put an adjustable wrench on the heater block. Then put a 6mm wrench on the nozzle. Unscrew the nozzle from the heater block. You already have the set screw for the throat tube removed. Aft...

Re: Raise3d N2 Clogged nozzle with Wood Filament

If stuff's not coming apart, heat it up to about 150C. There's probably plastic in the threads that has it all locked together.

Yeah, that RTV on the connectors on my N2+ has turned some simple tasks into infuriating experiences, and I have cracked a connector or two in the process. My newer N2 has a hot-melt adhesive on the connectors that is a lot easier to deal with. I'm not looking forward to digging that ribbon connecto...
