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.

1mm is one of the sizes in the bag.

I should note - these fit the N2 hot end. I don't have a Pro.

Re: Pro2 Plus with 1mm nozzle setting

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...

Re: Bracket/Fix for N2 Rotating Z-Axis Ball Nuts

Im printed a set also - the resulting improvement is subtle, but probable. I've done some parts with .025 and .05mm layer thicknesses. At that build height the irregularities from nut rotation were very visible. The taller the layer the less impact this will have, but it's removing a variable that ...

Re: Nozzle catching on small detail

ABS's tendency to warp is what's killing you here. The spiral arms are pulling up so they are taller. They spring down a bit when the nozzle is laying down new material but pull back up as soon as the head has moved on. Z-Hop will help here. It can increase stringing though. Since warp is the issue,...

Re: List of Currently Used Firmware and G-Code Commands

fwiw, I do this sort of thing all the time with S3D using multiple processes and either printing separate parts with each process or printing vertical zones in a tower with different settings. No g-code editing required.

I have a few bags of these - they've worked fine. They are shorter than the Raise nozzles, but otherwise they fit/work fine.

Re: Rafts Y/N? (Supports not sticking to bed)

If your raft is hard to remove, increase the separation distance between the raft and your first layer. In IdeaMaker it is "Raft Gap from Model". Adjust the value and print a small test part to check the setting - keep at it until you get the results you want before running a big print. Yo...

Re: Where the devil are the silicone hot-end covers?

Do you need to clean up the heating blocks and nozzles before fitting the socks? Mine have had some close encounters with failed prints, but I wouldn't say the build up is excessive. Probably not critical as I would not expect the silicone to adhere to the plastic residue, but it should be pretty e...

Sounds like it might be worth investing in a UPS for your setup so restarting is not required except in the case of a lengthy outage.
