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.

Re: Thermal-Protector - available soon to all

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...

It's in the G-Code tab of the template, so you can save a hot template and a cold one.

If you don't want the heated bed to shut down, delete the M140 instruction in your end script or set it to your desired idle temperature.

Re: ABS Build Surface - PEI? Geckotek?

I just put in a support ticket. It seems that even though I have verified good spacing at every perimeter point the point at the bed center is too high. If I try to pull it down I actually found I was bending the frame on the underside and the actual bed won’t come down. What you are probably deali...

Re: Filament delivery

Looks good, but what problem is it solving? I haven't had any issues with the stock setup - at least none that this would resolve. With a relatively full spool and a bit of rotational momentum, the stock setup can sometimes spill filament off the spool, which wraps around the holder axle and jams, ...

Re: Yet another spool mount mod

Spool-Legs.JPG The mounting face of the legs is angled at 2 degrees to match the draft on the side of the printer, so they won't be perpendicular to anything when you import the STL. and here's the STL for my 12" spool. It fits on a standard N2+ spool holder, but you have to be careful not to ...

Yet another spool mount mod

I sometimes splice a few spools of material together when running large parts, plus the standard spool mounts and locations don't always work with non-standard spool sizes, so I decided to move my spools to the outside, and didn't want to use any table space. I rarely print with the top removed, so ...

Re: Project robot lawnmower

Testing to print with PrimaSelect Carbon. A PETG mix with 20% carbon fibers. This Filament is a bit stiffer then the normal PETG. But I am not sure it´s worth the extra bucks compered to PETG. a whopping 95USD/kg VS 35USD/kg This was my first print running almost same settings as the Normal PETG, I...

Re: ABS Build Surface - PEI? Geckotek?

I have printed a lot of ABS with good success on PEI, but it also depends on the particular ABS. My PEI is .06" (1.5mm) thick. I buff the surface with 1500 grit sandpaper which improves the bite just slightly. As you have experienced, too much first-layer-squash and ABS can be difficult to remo...

Re: Bondtech BMG upgrade for the N series

I never remove the top cover unless printing PLA. I haven't done 50 hours with ABS, but I've done some 30 hour prints without issue. 40+ hours on PETG.

I assume they are still filling orders. I ordered them for 3 printers as soon as it was announced. I haven't heard or seen anything yet, but I assume it will happen soon as others have started getting theirs.
