Re: Serial error - No Such device or address

Also check that the flat cable connector on the pcb on the printhead is connected properly. (And the other cables on that pcb as well).

Re: Serial error - No Such device or address

You can press on the screen icon to disable the motor. And then move the printhead around the printbed. To see if you get he error when you put “stress” to the cables.

Re: Dual extrusion Simplify3D

You have to enable the right nozzle in the slicing presets/settings as well as choosing the correct nozzle for each model. And also set the filament and temps for each nozzle.

Re: Will I produce poor quality objects if I have the top cover on the printer while printing PLA?

I don't think you can find a solution that will satisfy your needs for proper ventilation and good prints. I think your best bet is to print PLA that is really sugar/starch based. Smells like popcorns or sugar. And do that in well ventilated room - without generating a draft environment. If you are ...

Re: Grounding out the filament guide tube

About every other time I change filament I will get a shock when I remove the guide tube from where it connects to the frame. I replaced the stock guide tube with a teflon one which may be the issue. Any ideas on how to ground it out? I have to remove the guide tube because it always hits when I mo...

Re: Feature request for internal support or infill when needed.

I really think this should be “smarter” though than how Simplify 3D has solved it by setting multiple processes. Like 10% infill to layer X. And 40% for the rest. But I also think that every parameter that you can change in ideamaker should be able to change after x numbers of layers/mm. Why wouldn’...

Re: Feature request for internal support or infill when needed.

Thats my understanding as well. The infill pattern is "global" and does not look at the structure of each part. I really think that infill should be "centered" in each part and be optimised for the internal structure.

Thanks as always Vicky :)

Do other slicers have this kind of functionality or would it be a "first"?

Re: Feature request for internal support or infill when needed.

It just struck me that we do have dense support layers. Why not have dense infill layers? That way we can have quite a small amount of infill up until its needed and we get dense infill layers before the prints need more support for finer details or small parts that otherwise wouldn't been supported...

Re: New Acceleration and Jerk settings

An answer from Raise3D in their Facebook group stated that the default values for jerk and acceleration are optimised for the machines. Do you think that is the case? Or is it just a number that should work ok for the most?

Re: New Acceleration and Jerk settings

The default jerk and acceleration settings in ideamaker. Are the values that are default there calibrated to our printers? I guess it’s not the same for my N1 as for the N2’a?
Or do I have to calibrate the values? And if so how?

Re: Print Bed Problem

That sounds like a probable chain of events. Guess you woll never know. You can just take precautions to it not happen again. Make sure your prints adhere to the bed. Make sure that you are not overextruding so the nozzle hits the print and/or use z-hop. And remote camera surveillance and a remotely...

Re: Print Bed Problem

It looks like the crack coincides with the place there the nozzle lowers when you start the print? (You could start the print again and see if that is the case.) If so it could have been the nozzle plunging into the bed. If the bed was to close to the nozzle. Was the glass bed still clamped down and...

Re: Printer failure

Or you could install a hepafilter in the printer to tak Thanks Noren. For the first suggestion, do you have some photos to illustrate the idea? I was thinking about a duct fan. There are models that are inline and you put in the fan duct and there are models that you connect the fan duct to. And th...

Re: Printer failure

That doesn’t need any modification. That was my point. There are small ventilation fans that you can put in the ventilation tube. Just push it in when you use it. Remove it and roll it up and put in the closet than not in use. Or you could install a hepafilter in the printer to take care of the bad ...

Doesn't modification of the board void warranty? I plan to buy the printer after I can convince myself and my family that I have found a good way to exhaust the fume from my room. I also want to know if the new ones have this issue fixed. If you have an air inlet in your wall in your room you can i...

Re: Printer failure

Sorry to see. I have to replace mine. Twice. :(.
I bought cable and connectors and press tool for the connectors from Conrad.se. (They have sites in other countries as well.).

If you want it up and running today you can cut the cable and solder the wires.
