Re: New heat shield design

That fan I'm using isn't very powerful (I can barely feel the flow), but it's seems to be just enough for PLA. I like the Sylus design I'm using because the fan duct is right in between the nozzles, so I get good cooling distribution even when doing dual extrusion prints.

Re: Cura 2.4 Profiles for Raise3D

I don't use XT-CF20 myself, but it's easy to create new material profiles in Cura.

Cura 2.4 Profiles for Raise3D

Hi all, I wanted to share my Cura profiles with the community. I created profiles for both N2 and N2 Plus (dual and single extruder models). I really like IdeaMaker, but it doesn't hurt to have a second slider on hand... and Cura is one of the best out there IMO. These profiles allow you to use Cura...

Re: New heat shield design

My main reason for wanting to insulate the hotends was to prevent the tops of my parts from curling up, and other effects. I haven't really had an issue with the hotends not reaching temperature.

Re: New heat shield design

Sorry for the confusion, the kapton tape is actually on both sides of the shield. It was just more convenient to wrap the tape all the way around instead of cutting it. While it serves no purpose in terms of heat deflection on the outside, it does provide some protection from blobs sticking to it, e...

Re: New heat shield design

So far so good. I haven't seen any melting or softening yet when printing PC. I've coated it with kapton pretty well. There's an air gap between the hot ends and the shield, so in combination with the kapton, it seems to work well.

New heat shield design

I just posted a heat shield and fan mount I designed (it's a remix of a nice fan mount design by Sylus). http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2183758 I basically got tired of having to remove my ceramic insulation blankets from the hotends, and the side fans, etc every time I wanted to change nozzles. S...

Re: Micro Swiss nozzles

I just bought the standard E3D Micro Swiss nozzle (not the Raise3D version)

Micro Swiss nozzles

Are the Micro Swiss nozzles that Raise3D sells special in any way, or can regular Micro Swiss nozzles be used? I'm asking because I needed a 0.3mm nozzle and Raise3D doesn't have any currently. So I bought a standard Micro Swiss nozzle and installed it, but I'm getting more frequent jams now. I noti...
