Re: Bond Tech Extruders . Any good, whats the improvement?

The installation is pretty simple, probably can be done in an hour even if being really careful (there is a video showing step by step installation). I first upgraded to the bondtech that reused the original motor and it worked flawlessly for a year and about 2000 print hours. I just installed the B...

Re: Touch screen freezing

There is likely a ton of length on that wire bundled in the base of the machine VS soldering. Normally I would do this except I have the N2+ and I figured I would much more likely damage the printer trying to tip that beast over to access the bottom than any issues from extending the wires. If at a...

Re: Touch screen freezing

I got a call from tech support on Monday explaining what I needed to do (which matched up with what you said). Went to connect the wires yesterday and because the wire terminal is higher than were the plug was on the V1 board the wires were not long enough. I was a bit frustrated so I walked away fr...

Re: Touch screen freezing

Jetguy- Thanks for the detailed explanation. Definitely glad I didn't do any guessing. I think I know what I need to do but since I am already out $450 for the first replacement I am going to wait for an official response to my support ticket so that any possible mistake with this new board isn't mi...

Re: Touch screen freezing

So it turns out I had to get a complete replacement for the touchscreen/computer. I have an installation question that I haven't gotten a response to on my support ticket yet and I'm hoping I can get a quick answer here as I can't finish without knowing. From what I unplugged from my V1 board notice...

Touch screen freezing

A few months ago I started noticing that if I left my printer on for a couple days the touch screen would be unresponsive, ie needed to do a hard reboot. If I am running a long print after about a day or so the touch screen will freeze, the print head will stop, the heat bed and hot end will maintai...

Re: Looking at a Raise3D N2 (non-plus)

I read through the mod section of these forums. Here's what scares me. -Still seeing folks with leveling issues despite the company pre calibrating the builds (shipping issues? does the level hold over many prints? Indefinite?) -Extruder issues? What the heck? You pay 3.8k for a printer but you mod...

Model printed on N2+ in Simply 3D print contest

My spiral yo-yo that I printed on my Raise 3D N2+ has been selected as a finalist in the Simplify 3D 4.0 print contest. IMG_2291.JPG s3dfacebooksmall.png I also did a short video about it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OPASUKW2H9s It took me working on it on and off for a year and a half before I ...

Re: gcode file transfer

If your printer is on a network you can use a program like WinSCP to remote into it to transfer files in both directions.

Re: Travel moves through open parts

This model can't be printed in spiral mode because the tops of the sides aren't connected. I haven't printed with Ninjaflex myself so maybe someone with experience with that material can give some advice.

Re: BMG Bondtech extruder: important

Immediately everyone should check and ensure they have some sort of locking mechanism on this critical ribbon cable. Ziptie,, glue, printed part, or something. Don't print without it. It might help some people if you had a photo to show the exact part you are talking about even though your verbal d...

Re: Print settings using a 0.8mm nozzle

It's interesting, 3 or 4 posts online mention going to FASTER print speeds with a bigger nozzle, yet you and I find the opposite. http://3dprinting-blog.com/tag/0-8-mm-nozzle/ I wonder what I'm doing wrong. I did have great success with these stackable boxes. Im very happy with them! A 50mm Marvin,...

Re: Bed Leveling - N2+ (My Experience & Solution)

Tipped in what way... wouldn't that mean a problem with the Z Axis? Image the back 3 screws all being +1mm, the middle 3 screws 0mm, and the front 3 screws -1mm. You straight edge would say the plate is flat (which it would be) but your plate wouldn't be trammed in respect to your hot end (your pri...

Re: Urgent fix needed

It is not just for lots of changes. It is for just trying to print. Let's say that, like right now, I am loading filament prior to a print job. Right after I load the filament I want to print. I cannot. I have to once again set the heat. That is just wrong. Is there some safety issue that has come ...

Re: Velocity Painting leads to board error 61639

Give it a try, as it is free and might be easier to use. I will definitely check it out, there were some choices in your interface that aren't in the VP interface that could be useful. Plus I think changing the extrusion rate may be more effective for opaque filaments than changing the print speed....
