Re: Bondtech BMG upgrade for the N series

I found the perfect tension for me is to screw it all the way in and release by 2.5 turns. I marked a line on the knobs so I can visually confirm 2.5 turns easily. This setting was recommended to me by bondtech tech support.

Re: How can I add a new fan?

Check the polarity of the fan's wiring. Some fans come with reverse polarity (which will cause the fan not to turn on).

That too... we've been promised the camera was in development for OUR printer for the longest time. It's kind of a swift kick in the nads to include it in the "next generation" printer while leaving us high & dry.

Retrofit N2 with Pro series features

Raise3D team, I noticed that the new Pro series printers are up for pre-order on your website. I couldn't help but notice the similarities with the N2 and the new Pro series printers. The only 2 real features I care about are the filament runout sensor and the electronic lifting system for dual nozz...

Re: Improvements by using TMC2130 driver.

Alright alright! Twist my arm, will you guys? 8-)

Are the digipot version compatible with our Raise3D N2's? Can we set the vref's via software, or do I need to buy the manual version?

Re: Improvements by using TMC2130 driver.

So if there's no appreciable difference in print speed/quality with this modification, why even bother? I mean I know it helps avoid the chance of skipped steps in certain (rare) conditions, but as ABH said.. there's no visual quality difference between the stock and upgraded drivers.

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

Due to popular request, here are the STL files for my cooling design. I do not have a thingiverse account, otherwise I'd post it up there.

Re: Octoprint and hacking the touch screen?

You're going to lose some of the features, such as the power-outage print recovery. I forget what else, but make sure you realize fully what you're losing before you do it. I was set on doing the same until I realized some of the more advanced features of the printer will no longer function. Maybe i...

Re: Quieting the N2

And here's a picture of a 120v 80mm fan grafted on to the outside of the power supply. It is always on, so it makes a small amount of noise all on its own, but the internal fan on the power supply doesn't run much if at all, so the net is less racket. I can even hear the steppers and extruder now. ...

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

I posted this in another thread the other day, I wanted to see the effect of using thermal silicone pads under the heat bed (as to not have to use the binder clips to secure the bed). Here was my finding: http://forum.raise3d.com/download/file.php?id=6270&t=1 For each table, each cell represents...

Re: Reclaim lost build area

the other option is to use thermal pads. however to note, the rear clips are screwed into the heated build plate. if you go to remove them, make sure the printer is off and unplugged. shorting out the bed is a costly mistake. one that I have had to experience with my printer. I've tried thermal pad...

Reclaim lost build area

Raise3D Team, I found out today (after many nozzle crashes & horrible noises over the past few weeks) that the binder clips encroach on the effective build area of the machine. I printed a 265mm x 265mm test square (centered to the 305mm x 305mm build area, giving 20mm clearance all around) to d...

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

My only fear is that with the blowers sticking so far out the sides you lose some x travel motion, Also if it goes back far enough it may hit the cable guide for the heatbed.

Re: how to keep the feed assembly cool

Would the bondtech extruders have the same heat issue? I'm guessing yes since it uses the same type of motors.
