Re: issue unscrewing the nozzle

Did you heat it up? You might have a bit of plastic on the threads. Heat it up to 180C and remove the nozzle.

Re: Overhang Improvements

I've found the most significant factor in getting a clean build that separates readily is the layer thickness. In my testing a layer height of 40-45% of the nozzle diameter is a good starting point. If the build is messy, reduce the layer thickness. If you can't separate the support material, increa...

Re: HOTEND set screws

Mine (purchased this fall) has M3 screws that use a 1.5mm hex wrench. I replaced the brass screws that go into the filament tube with brass-tipped steel screws.

Re: Z-height adjuster screw pitch?

It is an M3 x 0.5 screw, so one turn is .02" or .5mm.

Re: Z-axis off

Consider that if your model height doesn't divide evenly by your layer thickness you could end up over or under by some amount just because the printer can't hit a 20.0 mm part height by printing .3mm layers, for example. Z-heights on my printer have been pretty darn close. I posted some tools for g...

Re: Be aware - Actual buildplate temp lower than temp setting

I get a good ABS print with my bed temp set to 105C. Does it matter that the surface may actually be 100C?

Re: My bed mods

The bed clips on the aluminum were necessary for me to use the 12x12 MIC 6 I had. You can achieve the same benefit using the standard glass plate with your 12x12 surface of choice laminated - On my machines I offset from the front of the glass by 10mm and 7mm from the left. I also made some thinner ...

My bed mods

The day I ordered my N2+ printer, I also ordered some 12x12 aluminum and PEI for a custom build platform. Imagine my surprise when I found the N2 bed was not 12 x 12! I had also ordered 12x12 buildtak and 12x12 Kapton sheets. Making a custom-sized aluminum/PEI bed would be significantly more expensi...

Re: Recompiling firmware to adjust bed size

I shifted the bed on my machine 10mm forward and 10mm to the left. I moved the Y-Axis limit switch with this bracket to gain 10mm of movement in the Y-Axis. In my case I was not aiming to increase the build size, but to get a 12" x 12" bed uninterrupted by clips and such. http://forum.rais...

Re: How accrate are bushings diameters.

I posted some tools I use to ensure dimensional accuracy in this thread:
viewtopic.php?f=8&t=5111
I can reliably print with better than +/- .1mm (.004") for inside and outside dimensions, and often within +/- .05mm.

Re: standoffs for motors to limit heat transfer to print head

Without the heat sink of the extruder, motor temperature could easily increase. Might want to add heat sinks to the back side of the motors.

Re: Why I have to leave the Raise3D-Community

Not questioning your reasons or experiences - I've seen your posts and it does seem like you received a lemon. I picked up my N2+ this fall and it has performed very well. Having had 3D printing experience I made some changes to the machine right off - Bondtech Extruder, Panucatt stepper drivers, an...
