E3D Push-Fit Connector

This mod is not a big thing: I simply replaced the original Push-Fit Connector by one from E3D: https://e3d-online.com/threaded-bowden-coupling-1-75mm-filament An advantage of these type is, that you don't need to insert an additional tube. At least in my case it was also not possible to fully slide...

Project: Closed Loop Filament Sensor

This is still a work in progress, but as some people asking for something like this, I decided for an early release: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2518757 Currently, the sensor is tested on the desk only. Next, I need to check how to modify Marlin. But as this is not my top priority it may take ...

has anyone similar bed flatness in their N2?


This shouldn't be normal, but many of us have had the same trouble.
There are already a lot of threads in this forum, also some mods.
Here is my own solution: http://forum.raise3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1590

Re: Bondtech BMG upgrade for the N series

OK, I finally solved my issue:
My jams came from a too strong object cooling, so it seems sometimes the filament already hardened in the nozzle. It happened by loading a wrong factory file.
However, the BMG runs like a clockwork now . :-)

Re: Bondtech BMG upgrade for the N series

No this isn't the same issue I think. Motor was not even handwarm, cover was always left open and I was printing eSun PLA+. Meanwhile I think the issue is more related to my print object and hotend or object cooling. My object needed a really large number of retracts with only very short tracks of e...

Yes, in the meantime I found that 20mm/s seems to work better.

Re: Bondtech BMG upgrade for the N series

Sorry, I'm not trying to be unhelpful, I just have a hard time with your conclusion. No need to sorry. But I didn't state this as conclusion, I just tried to say what I've observed. I'm also aware, that there may be no causality between the jams and the BMG. However, thanks for your input! I consid...

Re: Bondtech BMG upgrade for the N series

These cones are looking really nice, good job!
It seems I have to play around a bit more with all the parameters.
But I just didn't expect this, as everything was running smoothly with the Bondtech Mini.

Re: Bondtech BMG upgrade for the N series

I just got the first prints out of my N2 after upgrading from Bondtech mini to the BMG with only one stepper installed. First, I used the same settings as before but ended always with a clogged hotend. So I tried different things, also reduced the retract from 1.5mm to 1.0mm. This way I could comple...

Re: Problems with Retract bigger 2mm

Most likely you didn't encounter a blocked nozzle, but a jammed hotend. This is a typical issue for this kind of hotends and can be avoided only by reducing retract or improving the hotend cooling, maybe also with lower extrusion temperature. With my printer I can't go above 1.5mm retract otherwise ...

I'm quite sure, it is not a issue of the extruder or hotend.

Re: PETG filament

What is it about these printers that it only seems to like raise filament? It is how the extruder gear is gripping the filament: It is gripping always with a constant distance into the filament. So if filament diameter is changing because of tolerances or if the filament is too soft (maybe by tempe...

Re: PETG filament

Personally I have had good results with PETG filaments from eSun and from 'Das Filament'.
But nothing other than Raise3D PLA worked for me reliable as long as I used the original extruder. So I upgraded to the Bondtech extruder.

Re: 0.2mm nozzle

The clog happens at fully random layers.
And btw. I'm printing without raft, there is no need for it as I use a heavily modified print bed.

Re: 0.2mm nozzle

So far I tested some eSun PLA+, but more Ingeo 3D850 which has very nice properties and is very easy to print with the 0.4mm nozzle. I did not try Raise 3D PLA as it is too brittle for my application.
I made my last trials at maximum 40mm/s, but I can try again at little slower speed...

0.2mm nozzle

I did a few prints with the 0.2mm nozzles recently, but had much more than usual problems with clogged nozzles. This happened with different materials (but mostly improved PLAs) and also different print settings. It happens also with brand new nozzles. Sometimes, the clogging goes away after a few s...

Re: X-Y ALIGNMENT AND LOOSE BELT CORRECTION

I suppose, I have the same problem again: After having some shifted layer prints recently, I moved the print head around by hand with steppers disabled and found that it stucks on the very left side. I already had this issue at the beginning, shortly after I received the printer. At that time I coul...

Re: No update of displayed temperatures after update to latest raisepack

Sorry, this was my own mistake.
I've did not take over some changes from one of my earlier custom firmwares to the current revision. This missing code section was responsible for sending messages to the PCduino if I don't compile support for the RepRapDiscount LCD.
Thanks firesped, Vicky!
