Re: Periodic Maintenance for N1/N2 after 2 years

Have you serviced the hotend assembly lately? Make sure the nozzle hasn't backed itself out and the cold end hasn't slipped down from the main assembly. I recently had to readjust the rods and belts alignment because I noticed the gantry doesn't move smoothly anymore. It feels like there's a bind so...

Re: Can anyone identify this filament

That's just generic Chinese made filaments. There are 2-3 of factories that make the bulk of these and their packaging are pretty the same. There might be a white sticker on the inside of the spool that might give you more information.

They should cost much less than that. Check aliexpress or similar websites.

Re: Pro2 Plus with 1mm nozzle setting

In IdeaMaker, when you click on slice and the template screen pops up, choose your template and click on Edit. Go to Advanced and go to the Extruder tab, 2nd tab. The first setting at the very top is extrusion width. In theory, your extrusion width should be 120% of your nozzle diameter. Your melted...

Re: Missing parts after slicing

Probably too small, try single outer shell instead of double.

Re: Feature Request #3 Imperial Units in ideamaker

Secretly hoping R3D won't add this feature. It might help a few, but I can see it screwing things up for many others.

Re: Source for Reasonably-Priced Nozzles

Sorry, went on travel and forgot all about this. The ones mentioned above will work, I've done it early on. If you want to keep it closer to the R3D nozzle, look for the MK8 style nozzles with M6 thread. Just make sure the inside of the nozzle is not bored out for the teflon tube liner. Some do and ...

Re: New hot end fan necessary - hot end fan installation

It goes through the hole and up out to the top where the breakout board is next to the extruder motor. You can just unplug it and pull it through the hole.

Re: [BUG][IM-3.1.7] Infill Extrusion Width Percentage/Infill Density

This bug is not unique to IdeaMaker and normally shows up when the nozzle size is large (.8mm+)

I dint think it's well understood and unfortunately not a lot of effort is being put into it. Maybe this would be a good opportunity for R3D to tackle this bug.

Re: New hot end fan necessary - hot end fan installation

It's a common off the shelf item that you can easily get within Germany. Use the information on the fan blade housing to get the spec of the fan.

Re: Bondtech upgrade voltage setup

So it's the one that you have your probe on and the one right next to it. If you look at the edge of the board where the white plugs with the black wires are, they're labeled E0 and E1 motor.

It's the one to the left of it, closest to the edge. You only have to adjust those 2 stepper drivers

Re: Higher extruder temperatures - above 300C for Ultem.

I can show you what I did with my N2+ as reference, but I also understand where R3D is coming from. Taking the machine beyond its intended limit is possible, but any support they give you is only going to encourage others from doing the same thing and I think that's where safety becomes a big concern.

Re: Setting bondtech Upgrade volume. How accurate does it have to be to 0.5v?

It should be fine. Print with it and if you experience the motor stalling or over heating then you can adjust accordingly.
