More like 1/4" on my early-vintage N2.

Re: Filament delivery

Looks good, but what problem is it solving? I haven't had any issues with the stock setup - at least none that this would resolve. With a relatively full spool and a bit of rotational momentum, the stock setup can sometimes spill filament off the spool, which wraps around the holder axle and jams, ...

Re: Filament delivery

I use overhead with all my other printers, but I like leaving the cover on the N2 because it greatly reduces the sound level.

Re: Spiral print rough on one side

T-Glase and PC are going to have very different melting, extrusion, and solidifying characteristics, that could absolutely account for this kind of different outcome.

Re: Printer Filament Monitor

Has this thing shipped yet? I'm pretty sure I pre-ordered as soon as I got the email. If not, any new release date? Last estimate from Raise was "March", which I'm pretty sure is over.

Re: Are Templates Updated on Import?

Like you, I've used the original N2 templates even though I've had a V2 since the day they came out. I'm asking because I only just realized I've been using the "wrong" printer setting all this time, lol.

Ah, thanks. I assumed there might be some parameter differences like extrusion rates, retraction, etc.

Are Templates Updated on Import?

I have a bunch of templates created with the printer set to "N2". If I export one of those, change the printer to "N2 V2 Hot End", and then import it, will the settings be automatically updated for compatibility with the V2 hot end? Or will I just have the old V1 template now in ...

Re: Need help with printing Poly Support

does that also aid with removing too tightly adhered prints? As I mentioned, I haven't had any problems with parts being "too stuck". Whether that's due to the use of glue stick or just because I lead a charmed life, I don't know :) I would guess that definitely defeats the BuildTak purpo...

Re: Contemporary heating build plate/nozzle

AFAIK they do both heat at the same time by default. What is confusing is that the display is not updated during the process. So the displayed temperature of the bed will look like it is not heating, but as soon as the extruder hits temp it will be updated and you'll see that it's already been heated.

Re: PETG Settings

I guess you're not using a raft. Supports have very little "footprint" surface area for sticking to the bed. They will adhere much better to a raft, where they will actually be welded to it.

Re: PETG Settings

I print Edge PETG from SpoolWorks on PEI, using Raise PLA profiles, 230-240º extrusion, and 80ºC bed. Works perfectly every time.

Re: Has any user done anything to address health-related issues during 3D printing?

FYI and FWIW, this is the only thorough study I'm aware of:

http://www.z-temp.co/Emissions%20from%2 ... inters.pdf

It shows PLA emitting a 2-3 orders of magnitude fewer ultra-fine particles and 1-2 orders of magnitude fewer VOCs than ABS.

Re: Be aware - Actual buildplate temp lower than temp setting

If you're really serious about measuring bed surface temperatures, I'd suggest you tape thermocouples directly to the surface being measured. I'm not saying your non-contact measurements are wrong, but I'd have a lot more confidence in the data if it was via contact, as emissivity and other factors ...
