Re: Change filament during print

Ok, thanks for the reply Vicky. I will certainly be more careful next time if I choose to pause. In other cases I'll try the method of inserting a new filament one after another until a better solution is found .. although I can imagine this would be a tricky task if the head is moving around so fas...

Re: Change filament during print

I accidentally moved the position of the extruder whilst changing the filament. On print resume, the print was completely off with no way to recalibrate it. ... and subsequently lost about 30hrs of time, and the print itself. I only decided to change the filament as I thought the filament would run ...

IdeaMaker - Remotely stopping a print.

I currently have a dedicated laptop setup to connect and monitor my N2+ remotely. It works well for it's intended purpose of observing the print itself and monitoring the progress. I came across an issue where I was monitoring a print remotely and from the webcam view I could tell that there was an ...

IdeaMaker 2.5.1.785 - Change in startup Gcode?

Newbie here with an N2+: I noticed that when I upgraded Ideamaker to the latest version 2.5.1.785 that when I start a print the starting sequence is a little different. On the previous version 2.5.0 before printing the extruder would home in on X0 / Y0, then home in on Z0 but would raise about 10mm ...

Re: Shipping rates

The warehouse was Mainland China. There were no options to choose another warehouse.
I'll make enquiries at sales@raise3d.com

I've been getting great results from eSun PLA+ in black, but the Raise3d brand still looks and prints better.

Thanks Vicky

Re: Shipping rates

I'd love to place an order for about 8 rolls of Raise3d Premium PLA as I've had great results from it. The shipping cost to New Zealand is astounding though ... In this example of just 4 rolls, the total cost in $NZ also puts me over the customs tax allowance which means I'd be liable for customs ta...

Shuddering from the left side rod on the Y (Forward/back) axis ...

Hi team, There is an awful shuddering coming from the left side rod on the Y (forward/back) axis. During my first calibration print, I noticed it would happen every 5-10 mins. It would go away if I ran some lube over the rod while it was operating. The print started developing layer shifting early i...
