Re: Filament Run-out Sensor Install Problem

The sensor has been working fine for me since my last post, it is still installed that way. But it does not pauze the printer when filament is stuck (clogged nozzle or diameter issues), I thought the optical sensor would notice that too. So only when the filament is out but that's fine, I don't have...

Re: PVA (Flex Filament) and Pro2 Serie ?

I printed a few good testprints with Formfutura Helios Support, also compatible with ABS: https://www.formfutura.com/shop/product ... tegory=204

But I removed the second extruder because it's a pain to calibrate on the N2.

Re: Filament Run-out Sensor Install Problem

This is how I currently have the sensor installed, it's epoxied to the printer and has this 3D printed part: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3099649 Looks nice with the logo, let's hope it will now function as it should. I did have quite some spools I printed empty because of the sensor so that is...

Re: Filament Run-out Sensor Install Problem

I did not have any software errors yet but last week my N2 Plus was almost wrecked twice by using the sensor. Make sure to attach the sensor very well to the printer. I had it stuck to the side above the filament with the double sided tape Raise put on the sensor (over the Raise3D logo and indicator...

Re: Filament Run-out Sensor Install Problem

Then I have the genuine product! I also put in the work to adjust the whole thing. I didn't have a drill bit with the right size so I only used a slightly bigger one for the top part, I didn't have the nerve to drill the delicate part with that where the sensors are placed (I disassembled it first o...

Re: Filament Run-out Sensor Install Problem

This is the current setup: I connected the left spool (viewed from the door side) to the right nozzle. Also, the filament of course is fed through the left entrance of the sensor. I switched the connectors on the main board and now the sensor did work. It did take like a minute before the printer st...

Re: Filament Run-out Sensor Install Problem

I read some other threads about this, is there an official answer here? I received a filament sensor that doesn't work (probably the filament is in the wrong entrance). Why is there not more info about this in the manual? Also, there is alot of drag on the filament and it is being stripped by the se...

Re: Filament runout sensor kills printing -- fixed

I just installed a filament sensor, same issues! The filament is stripped by the metal - there's a ball of plastic at the entrance. Also, my sensor seems not to work even though I think I followed the manual very closely - probably left and right mixed up.. I'm also not amused that this is still not...

Re: End of filament sensor

What was the reason it was recalled? I installed one, doesn't seem to work.. Printer does not stop when filament is out (edit: probably left and right mixed up). Mine doesn't look like the one in the webshop here, probably an early version? It also strips the filament and creates more friction.

Re: Fan Mod (Extra Gcode Controlled Fan)

Hello, the extra fan should cool a bit more when activated in gcode. I don't know if two fans could work - if there is enough current.

Re: Thermal-Protector - available soon to all

The pin was too far in the connector to reach so had to cut the correseponding pin in the protector board. I tried both a micro cutter and needle nose pliers - it was harder than I thought. All pins around it were bent but the micro cutter did the job although it was hard to reach the lower end of t...

Re: Thermal-Protector - available soon to all

@Jetguy Yeah I figured that it may be the easiest to just cut the same pin in stead of trying to pry the little thing out probably damaging it. If it's not used anyway it's no problem. Thanks for the extensive info!

Re: Thermal-Protector - available soon to all

So, I received the thermal protector and went to install it. But the connector will not fit! The motherboard connector has a pin in the plug on one side, I suppose to avoid being able to connect it wrong (there's no connector socket just pins on the MB). So now I'm supposed to try to get that little...

Re: Just Released N2 Pro

I try to look at this thing from both sides, as a user/consumer and Raise3D's side. As a user I would expect/like to see upgrade parts available at reasonable prices as the printers do look much alike and of course are very much the same. Many improvements are sometimes logical and should already be...

Re: Your favorite ABS

No problem! They also mentioned for example 5 to 10 rolls shipping is about 5 dollars/roll. I would also hesitate to order then. I don't think I ever ordered from the USA, I imagine shipping this way is also too expensive.

I got a response from Formfutura, they mentioned they have a reseller in the USA (http://www.designbox3d.com) and are talking to more. I could not find Premium ABS on their website now but they do offer TitanX which is the high performance ABS. I imagine they can also order and offer the other produ...

I added V2 files with smaller holes. The holes were 4 mm, they are now 2.5 mm so should fit some M3 bolts tightly :-)

Re: Your favorite ABS

I think PETG breaks fairly easily it's so brittle, maybe that's why it doesn't follow layer lines.. I have tried it a few times but support removal is just a hazard with pieces/shards breaking off and shooting across the room. That's not my experience with PETG at all! The parts are very tough with...
