Re: Drying filament under vacuum

Thanks for the update. I have been following this thread with interest. Have you found that the Nylon filament needs to be entirely free of moisture or is there a point where you have extracted sufficient moisture such that further drying has an insignificant effect on surface finish and part streng...

Re: Silicone Hot End Covers anyone tried these?

One of the benefits of the hotend covers should be to prevent excess heat affecting the printed part as it prints, particularly where there are fine layers, for example at the top of a cone. There are some early posts somewhere on the forum with pictures that explain this better. Since I have not be...

Re: life size statue of Kara from "detroit become human" game

Hi Pierre, Thank you for posting. Truely inspirational. The finish quality is superb. Would love to know more, e.g. the purpose of the project and how you achieved the high quality finish, particularly the face, (that is if you can share such details). Certainly shows what the N2 is capable of in th...

If Raise3D are limiting the upgrade components to the following items only; 1. BondTech Dual Extruder 2. BondTech Single Extruder 3. N Series Webcam 4.

Re: Glue for Raise3D PLA?

@Jetguy and detroitus Thank you both for your quick responses and the useful links Jetguy. These gives me a good starting point. I am fortunate in that I have access to a fume cupboard and associated PPE if required. So I think some experimentation is needed. I will also give the Loctite 414 a go. R...

Glue for Raise3D PLA?

Has anyone on the forum had experience of gluing together parts printed from Raise3D PLA (standard or premium)? I have tried Loctite superglue ( Ethyl 2 cyanoacrylate) but the bond is easily broken/ I am looking more for something where if forced, the PLA will give way before the glue bond. The part...

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

To follow up on Zemlin's advice. The N2 is not completely sealed and therefore you will get fumes enter your room. If you are limited for space to locate the printer I think you will need to carefully choose the type of filaments you use and set up an external extraction system that is able to chang...

@jamma

Bad luck with the new floors :cry:. You could always print yourself a nice set of spacers to provide clearance for the castors and then reclaim your washers.

Re: Make changes available - rant warning

Dear Vicky, Regarding your statement -"For open source, we haven't promised open source before." The published Raise3D kickstarter brochure implies that the printer is open source. i.e. "We will publish our APIs and toolchains after the Kickstarter campaign’s conclusion". Brochur...

Re: Conducting Filament

An interesting experiment. Given current progress in the technology of conductive filament I think that is not too bad a result. Perhaps to better demonstrate the concept to your students you could increase the voltage to make the LED appear brighter. Some of the later type LEDs are quite bright whe...

Re: What sealant should be used

The raise3d hot end assembly instructions refer to high temperature silicon grease (not a sealant). Presumably this is to make it easier to release the threads of the throat tube the next time it needs to be removed.

Re: V2H Nozzles Swap & Adjustment

The distance between the nozzle and the platform can be adjusted by turning the thumb screw on the left-front corner of the Z plate. The higher the screw stands out, the further the distance between nozzle to the print platform gets. "https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/1312/8511/files/leveling.p...

Re: Tightening belts

I could imagine that over time with the cyclic heating and cooling effects of using the printer, the belts will require some adjustment. Although I have not had my N2 long enough yet to find out.

@ABH Thanks for posting your tool. It will come in useful.
