Re: Standard R3D PLA

Do you use the guide tube that come with the machine? Remove that if you do. Also, several time the extrusion get into issue due to the way filament spool holder locate. If possible try to put filament spool on top of the printer and let the gravity help to pull it down straight into the extruder.

Re: Tech support unable to advise, printing ceases after 30-40 mins

What filament PLA brand are you using? If you are sure that you measure 130c at hot end while it is printing, then you should check the wiring of thermocouple to the mini board on extruder, then try to use the 2nd thermocouple that you had prior removed to replace with the 1st one. Make sure that bo...

Re: a very very clogged hotend- advice

I had once bigger blob than this after failed print over night for full bed size object. I didnt have the heat gun, so I just used another hotend to melt (heat up to around 150c) by pressing it into the plastic ball till it reach the metal hotend inside. Wait it to get cool down for a 30seconds, the...

Re: A little disappointed with the N2

That is exactly what I request them to change in the firmware, unable to turn off the LCD screen when battery is below 60-70% even when unplugged the power cable - is a very bad design. The LCD will keep flashing. The only thing you can do is to turn it on, and left it overnight. I dont want to imag...

Re: Resuming Print - N2

To bypass this issue, you can connect to printer via Ideamaker through wifi and adjust the setting from that mirror interface screen. I have this happened to me sometime too, but it can continue to print without problem.

Re: Clogging during a print

Most of all metal hotend will have issue with standard PLA because of constant retraction, causing filament which get soften clogged in the thermal tube. Polymaker PLA or Raise3D Premium (Polymaker OEM) have higher temp glass transition, so it can retain its form better in thermal tube. You can try ...

Re: Help needed : unwanted xy translation during prints

You might want to try Z hop feature , it might increase the print time (the time estimation given in the slicer is way off so just ignore it) but can help to minimize collision.

Maybe you should also post this topic in Zortrax forum, it will be great to see from different perspective. I too, feel that Zortrax Inventure is an overprice model.

Re: New Extruder, Bad Jam

Important point is that if it is very hard to remove the nozzle, don't try to force it. You should do this while it is hot - heat to 120-150c should be enough, and when assemble back, you need to tighten while heat the nozzle to ensure there is be no gap between nozzle and tube. I have this happened...

Re: Please help maybe retraction

Do you use the default setting profile for Raise3D in Simplify3D? I believe their latest version has profile ready for Raise3D.

Apart from flow rate, you need to check the filament setting too such as diameter and density and use the number from Ideamaker to Simplify3D
