Re: Poll - Do you use Ethernet, Wifi or Flash Drive to transfer your files to your Raise3D printer?

I use a flash drive because sadly it is faster to copy a 20mb file to the flash drive, walk down the basement stairs, and plug it in than to transfer over Ethernet.

Re: Model release

I do hope you are removing the glass build plate from inside the printer and spraying it away from the printer insides, there have been some users that spray the plate while it is inside the printer, giant mistake! and what an awful sticky gummy mess it makes of the moving components and electronic...

Re: Adhesion Issues

A picture of what you are seeing would be very helpful for us in trouble shooting. I sometimes see this when I am over extruding or have the bed to close to the nozzle for the first layer (the plastic has no where to go so it pushes up the plastic laid down next to it causing the waves).

Re: Limitations of spiral/vase mode

In my experience up to 45 degrees should be no problem, 45-60 usually OK, over 60 depends on filament, temperature, layer height and what not.

I believe you can specify at what angle you want supports in ideamaker, of course you can't use supports in spiral mode.

Re: Problem with retract

I'm having the same issue on my N2+. I don't know when it started and I haven't spent much effort figuring out the why but I am also getting the retract on every begin and end line.

Re: First layer height - can we get it in %?

For me the % in S3D is actually a problem. This just happened to me yesterday I changed the layer thickness from .1 to .2 but forgot I had my first layer height at 200% and a first layer height of 0.4 didn't work out to well.

Re: Who's going to MRRF this year?

I will be going again this year. Might bring my Palette depending on what else I am bringing. The N2+ will be staying home :)
If they were smart Raise 3D would get a table, it really is about the biggest event specifically about 3D printing in the US.

Re: Problems with PLA

I tried with 60°C and the print went well. Just for my understanding ... as answered by Vicky and 3Dnoob, in the Internet someone say to increase the temperature to 60°C and someone says to turn it off . For a newbie like me is a little bit confusing ... it depends only on the presence or absence o...

Re: Touch screen freezing

Hi, Jason. I got the same situation as you mentioned. I was told to have my screen box replaced, too. But the new circuit board was not really the same as the original one. And the technician told me to connect the 24v wire to the PSU(the green one). But then when I plugged in electricity, it blew ...

Re: Surface quality on tall prints

Hi Michael, I have attached a 300mm tall piece of baseboard that was printed vertically where the problem slowly presents itself the farther up it goes. All doors were open including the side and top lid removed. No difference for me either way. Something that tall and thin is going to sway a littl...

Re: glass bed can't be leveled because it's not flat :/

After spending the good part of a day trying to level the bed (high spot in the middle), I realized that it wasn't possible when looking at the bed from the side, I noticed that the glass was not in contact with the platform in the middle. Logically, if the glass is clamped on the sides and the mid...

Re: access files on local drive

I have a N2 plus dual and I have a file saved on the local drive that I would like to download and edit on my laptop. How do I gain access to that code once it is uploaded? I've tried copying or moving the file but that only allows you to do so in the same directory. I'm not at my printer at the mo...

Re: issue uploading gcode (ideaMaker 3.0)

I just tried with WinSCP, a 50mb gcode file took 10 minutes to upload so the issue also appears outside of ideaMaker.

Re: Simplify3D vs IdeaMaker3 - your opinion?

I have had S3D for over 4 years now and have used it on the Raise3D. IdeaMaker is actually a pretty good slicer. I find unless I am doing something pretty complicated that requires a specific feature of S3D I default to Ideamaker because it is both designed for the printer and the convenience of upl...

Re: issue uploading gcode (ideaMaker 3.0)

Have you ever tested with the following steps? I have turned the wifi off on the printer. As for the other steps I think its a bit much to need to hard code all the IP address on my home network (my router defaults to a 192.168.10.* address) to see if that fixes the issue. I'll put up with it worki...

No, same behavior with the old and the new touch panel. With the old touch panel I had the cord plugged into the back of the machine, with the new panel it is plugged directly to the panel.

Re: issue uploading gcode (ideaMaker 3.0)

If you have to use LAN, please try connect to the LAN slot on touchscreen directly and see if that works better. It may be the problem of the extension cable to the back. Just to add a data point. I too have had slow transfers via Ethernet. I recently had to replace the touch panel so while everyth...

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).

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...
