Re: N series printers

i believe that the Bondtech extruder will still work on the N1. I will leave this to a N1 owner that has the upgrade, but i think Jetguy and a couple of others are using the Bondtech on their N1's

Re: Your favorite ABS

if your PETG is brittle after printing you need to dry it. PETG is Hygroscopic (absorbs water out of the air).

Re: Consistent layer separation at certain heights

What filament are you using? and at what temp? i have had the same issue but it turned out being the temp was too low or moisture. I have had it happen with PETG (moisture, after drying filament for 6 hours it was fine) PLA, printing at 190-195 c when bumped up to 200-210 c problem disappeared.

Re: New N2PLus.... shall I go BondTech straight away?

It's not a "must do", but it's one that I have done on all my printers (Raise3d or not). The mechanics behind the extruder system just plain beat any single hobbed or single drive gear/idler wheel (bearing) set-up. I have not had any hiccups going from maker flex/ NinjaTek to Gmass's tungs...

Re: Bondtech BMG upgrade for the N series

I have printed a lot of flexible filaments like NinjaTek and Maker Flex along with hard filament like the virtual foundry's Copper filled and Gmass tungsten filled. To be fair, I only had the stock extruder on the 2 Raise3d machines up until the Bond Tech came out and only used PLA and ABS. I now us...

Re: 3rd party PLA clicking/heat creep?

when you went to the bondtech extruder did you turn down the stepper driver voltage? just want to make sure its not the motor getting too hot. 3rd party PLA has a lower "Glass transition" temp so the PLA will soften at a lower temperature making it harder to feed.

Re: ABS warping

1 of the main things with ABS is to install the caps on the bottom of the fans to block the layer portion of the cooling. heat build plate up with the printer enclosed for about 10 min before printing. i normally then put a block under the lid to prop it open about 2 inches. I use 200 mm wide Kapton...

Re: Proto Pasta Stainless Steel

DeftCad, i just wanted to let you know that i chewed up the hardened nozzles like candy with the Gmass Tungsten filament. i would go through a nozzle per roll. Microscope pictures showed my nozzle at .8 to .9mm after a 1Kg roll. i am trying a ruby nozzle right now.

Re: Proto Pasta Stainless Steel

i have used multiple rolls of it. first off, you have to step up to a .6mm nozzle. the stainless steel particles can measure up to .4mm in size. i do not use the stock extruder, i have a Bondtech dual direct drive. extruder temp at 210 c and bed at 60c.

E=Extruder, if your nozzle is at temp, it will extrude or retract filament.

Re: What buildplate is commonly used?

i bought the glass to use instead of the Borosilicate glass with the buildtak on it. The Borosilicate is better due to low thermal expansion. students don't really use a lot care or caution when removing things from build plate and the regular glass saves me money. i have 3 makerbots but they have b...

Re: What buildplate is commonly used?

I went to local glass shop and bought 2 plates of glass (cost $4) and have used those from the beginning. I have one with Kapton tape and ABS slurry (ABS and acetone) for ABS prints and another plate with Elmers purple glue stick for PLA. I did not like the buildtak, that is just a personal preferen...

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%)
