Re: Z-axis off

you are going to have to dial in flowrate of the filament, each and every spool is different. always use calipers on the filament (about 1 meter or 3 ft) and take an average diameter, then set flowrate accordingly. mine in S3D always runs around .94 to .96 (94% to 96%)

Re: Extruding air???

nozzle is done. replace the nozzle and buy a couple extras to have on hand. you must of been printing in ABS (because of the acetone statement). the best way to clean up the throat tube or nozzle is to heat it up to operating temperature and use the rod supplied, and as always be very careful, it's ...

Re: Z offset

if you are getting good adhesion with the first layer then don't worry about bed height anymore. it looks that you are now over extruding a little bit. dial your flow rate back just a little bit. also I try and print just a 20mm x 20mm x 10mm cube with 100% infill to help calibrate the flow rate.

Re: Z offset

there is under extrusion, so you will want to make sure to check for a partially clogged nozzle and check the flow rate numbers in the slicer you are using. here is a helpful link https://www.simplify3d.com/support/print-quality-troubleshooting/

Re: Air Prints

the raft extrudes at a different rate, it is shoving out a thicker diameter of filament at the beginning so a lot more pressure, also check that you haven't scratched up the throat tube while cleaning, that could also lead to problem. i am a firm believer of insulating the hotend to prevent radiant ...

Re: Issue with a sphere

it looks like the center was knocked over, most likely by a nozzle strike. I agree with Michael on the need of support, you can even make your own placements to keep clean up easier. its the aluminum part of the hot end insulated? this helps in reducing radiant heat from the hot end from keeping PLA...

Re: ABS Printing

it is hard to tell in the picture. is the bottom part (raft and first bit of part) in its original location or has it moved? are you having problems with layers adhering. in the picture it looks like the layers that build the raft are shifted a little bit to the side on each new layer in z. I don't ...

Re: ABS Printing

this is just what I do, there are many methods. I use a glass plate with kapton tape on the glass then use an ABS slurry (mixture of abs filament and acetone) apply the "slurry" let it dry and presto no problems with adhesion. also make sure you install the two caps on the bottom of the fa...

Re: Must do upgrades to N2

insulating the hot end does not affect anything on the machine, mechanically so I don't see that affecting the warranty at all (if that's what you mean by support). the bondtech is a great upgrade not just for the Raise printers I have, but also the Rostock max and heavily modded Makerbot 2's and 2x...

Re: Warping Issues

Yeah, I run PLA with both front and side doors open and top propped up. nozzle temp 205 c and bed temp 60 c. I still fought a bit of curling so I insulated the hot end to remove the "radiant" heat from reaching the part. as Michael said ABS is opposite, nozzle temps around 235 c and bed te...

Re: I’ve bought thermal insulation sheets and kapton tape. Now what?

the kapton is good up to around 280 c by manufacturer (they play it safe with the rated numbers) but I have had it up to 350 c for a long period of time in Vacuum chambers (4 days). I have also ran it on all my 3d printers with no problems. I do replace them when I do a nozzle swap or change.

Re: I’ve bought thermal insulation sheets and kapton tape. Now what?

1mm is fine. after you sandwich the ceramic tape with kapton tape then you will want to put a couple small strips of kapton on the 2 "legs" that go around the throat tube so when you wrap the block you use the two strips of kapton to attach. if you look at the picture of the paper template...

Re: I’ve bought thermal insulation sheets and kapton tape. Now what?

I took a sheet of paper and wrapped it around the heater block and with the help of a razor knife, I trimmed any cut outs I needed (around the throat and nozzle). then take paper and lay it on ceramic insulation as a template and cut the ceramic insulation to match. sandwich the ceramic between kapt...

Re: Hitting support layers / ZHOP settings

I noticed in your picture that the cap is on the end of your fan. if you are printing PLA you must remove the cap so that the PLA can be cooled quickly. PLA will curl if not cooled properly and could be a cause for the nozzle strikes. * I have N2's and N2+'s no N1's so if the cap if permanent and ri...

Re: Filament Initial Contact with BuildTak Concern

there is some math there (.4mm nozzle, 1.75mm dia filament, .2 mm layer height) but I'm thinking that 12 x 12 inch 2 brims would be maybe 2 to 3 inches of filament, if that much. just kind of guessing. :lol: I don't want to do the math.
