Re: Bay Area Maker Faire Editors Choice

Don't remember exactly but it was over 100 individual print jobs. Over 1400 print hours.

Bay Area Maker Faire Editors Choice

I brought my full size 3d printed grandfather clock to BAMF17.

It ended up earning an editors choice award!

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....

Looks interesting, does this work the same as VP or is there something different to what you are doing?

Re: Velocity Painting leads to board error 61639

OK, I'm going to blame the 2 day migraine class headache I am just getting over for this rookie mistake. I was still running 0.7.0 version of Raise Touch. Now I had a good reason for not upgrading, I didn't dare make any changes after I got my clock workflow down and that was a 6 month project, but ...

Velocity Painting leads to board error 61639

Lately I have been having quite some fun playing with a new technique called Velocity Painting (http://www.velocitypainting.xyz/gui/index.html). Unfortunately I have had zero luck with this on my N2+. As soon as the print reaches an area that is painted I get a "Board error: Resend: 61639 Pleas...

Re: Trouble with extruded filament accumulating on nozzle

Walshlg: Ceramic tape? You mean the white teflon tape used for pipe threads? I have that so I would be able to try it out. He is definitely not talking about that. This won't fit the raise3d heat block but it is an example of what he is talking about https://www.fargo3dprinting.com/products/makerbo...

Re: Raft Adhesion Issues

Thanks for the responses. The distance between the nozzles and the build plate was set with the 0.2mm feeler gauge supplied with the printer. Bed temperature is set at 60C. I'm hoping it's not the Buildtak that's the issue as I've only printed a handful of small models so far. I've done a couple of...

Re: Raft Settings

So on my second week of my N2 and I am actually having a real issue. What was working great before, is now starting to have some issues. Using PLA at 215 degrees prints fine at the normal 50 mm/s print speed but part of the default settings for the raft prints at 60 mm/s . When the raft prints at 6...

Re: Clear cover, Warping and PLA

To reduce warping I tried brim with raft which makes a lot of sense to me. (I also could just extend the raft a few more mm, which I will try next). Can we adjust the distance the brim is from the raft? It looks like my distance from raft to brim is about 0.2 mm which unfortunately allows the raft ...

Re: Clear cover, Warping and PLA

Your issue is probably bed leveling and possible rod sag. I have printed several 300x300 flat PLA pieces (no raft) but it has to be dialed in perfectly, and may be impossible if you are running a stock machine. The original extruder is so heavy that with rod bowing it is pretty much impossible to ha...

It's hard to print 300x300 squares that don't warp in something besides PLA. I'll make sure to keep it out of the heat.

Could you post your s3d profile? I use s3d also but my starting gcode is messed up somehow, I have to preheat the nozzle or it start before it's heated.

Re: Patterns for Aluminium Sand Casting

First do a test, create a model that is square in x and y (say 200x200) and a few mm thick. Then select model->auto fit to build volume. In my case it set the size of the model to 304x304. Try it both with raft on and raft off to see what you get. If you get the full build volume then maybe your mod...

Re: Patterns for Aluminium Sand Casting

This isn't really truthful as the printable area by a single printing head in the x axis is only 280mm. There is some confusion about this, usually you subtract the head difference from dual nozzle to single but one does get the full 305x305 on a single nozzle on the N2+. I've done it and it was so...
