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.

Re: Your favorite ABS

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...

Re: Fan Mod (Extra Gcode Controlled Fan)

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...

Re: Fan Mod (Extra Gcode Controlled Fan)

Hey, i got your design printed, but had serious warping issues with the filament used. Since then i haven't had a serious filament in the machine, only printing easter bunnies and such with ABS+, when i was printing at all. I checked overall design, ruling it good so far, but i stumbled over the bi...

Re: Your favorite ABS

One filament that might achieve this is CoPa by Polymaker, I hear it is very strong and has no warp. Not an ABS though, it's a nylon. My PETG parts break without following layer lines.

Dual Color Extruder Board Cover

I made this dual color extruder board cover a while ago, I posted the files on Thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2727001
I used Formfutura Premium ABS.

Re: Fan Mod (Extra Gcode Controlled Fan)

So I got the Sunon fans a while ago, the mod is working good for me although the flow isn't as much as expected it does cool the printed parts more.

Did anybody print and install it yet? Would love to hear feedback.

Re: Thermal-Protector - available soon to all

Did anybody get the part already? I got a mail two weeks ago saying they tried to reach me for my adress (?), I replied I did not get a mail but sent the adress info and heard nothing since then. A bit weird because the process of ordering the part is to fill in all your info like adress etc.
