Printer Settings

Hi Guys, I upgraded my early n2 plus to the bondtech extruders which have 140 steps per mm. I had to modify and create a new printer in ideamaker to do this. Can I do something similar in raise cloud? The other benefit of using ideamaker was that when i changed to a different printer setting that ha...

Re: Thick, Solid PLA Prints are Lifting

Hi Bajud, I print straight on to the glass bed, I found the build tak to be rubbish so I dont use it. Next check your z layer height to make sure it is the right distance from the plate. After that, print the first layer really slow, like 8 -12 mm/s making sure it gets a very good adhesion to the be...

Re: Error: thermal runaway... Now both extruders unresponsive

the ribbon cable is a 14 wire cable. the question being is wither a better cable can be made using something like 24 AWG, 20 Conductor, Computer Cable, Foil Shield, but I guess that will depend on how big that wire is. someone with more electrical knowledge can likely determine the cable size neede...

Re: Full maintenance teardown - what should I replace/upgrade?

Dont get to carried away by pulling apart the top of the printer to replace the 14 pin IDC ribbon cable. Why? They always fail, I have gone through 6 of them and one of them was faulty. The current ones have lasted a while. I tend to know when they are failing as the temps on the extruders go a litt...

Re: print polypropylene (PP) = nightmare

As you have used all the build plates, what seemed to be the most versatile product and how long do they need to last before being replaced?

I had a look at their sites, and none were available for sale for the n2 build plate size.

Re: Extruder Switched off MAXTEMP triggered

This problem cause me 3 months of anguish. In the end, it was the grey 14 pin idc cable on the extruder board. After 3 months I got it working again only for the machine right next to it to catch it as well and had to wait a while for the part to come over again. I suggest you buy a few of these cab...

Re: Bondtech BMG upgrade for the N series

Thanks Socke,
While waiting, what I did to insert the roll was to loosen the spring screw on the side and push it to the bottom, job done.
Print was off doing its own thing quickly.
