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: thermal pads for the HBP

Anyone wants the raw data on thermal pads, here they are: image (2).png 16 data points captured on the bed from a 4x4 grid with a non-contact IR thermometer w/ "peak hold" turned on and a 5 second "sample" was taken from each data point. 1) Control test: Heated bed to 100°c and t...

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.

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

The one thing I love about my setup is that the parts cooling fans nozzles create a "blade" of air striking the very tip of the nozzle. As a comparison, this is a Benchy on my Raise3D w/ E3D hotends & dedicated parts cooling: IMG_2577.jpg This is the same Benchy, same settings, same fi...

Re: Project Bondtech Extruder

I just tried installing my dual direct, and it looks like it's not going to happen without a ton of rewiring, or making a new little holder for the breakout board. My breakout board doesn't fit in the bondtec little shield, and both the heater/thermocouple, and the fan wires are much to short to fi...

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

as far as the direct cooling fan, I actually saw one I'd like to adapt that will not need an assist duct. This one here. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2149774 Funny you should link that. My final setup for direct cooling ended up kind of like that: 9DE50F9A-EED5-443F-93E8-A23D7B530958.jpeg

Maximum amperage for parts cooling fan

I'd like to know what is the maximum amperage this port is rated for: http://forum.raise3d.com/download/file.php?id=6138&t=1 I intend to splice together 2x 5015 blowers (each rated for 0.15A). Will it be able to handle 0.3A? Best, Kareem EDIT: And yes, I am aware the leftmost port can be control...

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

The nozzle shroud is still printing at the moment, but here is the model I used to design/print the setup. I'm using the stock cold-end fans and added 2x 5015 blowers for the parts cooling. 2018-01-06 12_44_40-Autodesk Fusion 360.png 2018-01-06 12_44_16-Autodesk Fusion 360.png 2018-01-06 12_43_31-Au...

Almost done with my setup. Gotta finish printing the parts cooling nozzle to connect to the 5015 fans in the back.

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

I noticed that my adapters have flat parts on the flange that fits into the print carriage. The rounded ends of the adapter seem to line up to where the set screws in the carriage will contact the flange. It seems that it needs to rotate 45 degrees more so that the flat parts line up to the front an...

I am assembling my adapters today. Do you recommend using thermal paste between the heatbreak and the cooling fin adapter as E3D recommends?

I thought about that but the cold-end fans are already on the sides.
