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.

Re: Are bontech settings different to regular ones ie do you have to up speed etc?

I'm not sure what you mean with your first question. As for your second question, you should not need to change anything other than the EStep setting in the touch panel. Flow rate and everything else should remain the same. If you want to print faster, the only thing you should have to change is tem...

Re: Pro2 Plus with 1mm nozzle setting

Try it with the standard settings @ 1.2mm extrusion width and start with .6mm layer height. You'll probably have to slow down the print speed a little bit also. If you know the maximum output of the printer in volume, then you can determine the maximum speed based on your desired layer height vs. ex...

Re: Are bontech settings different to regular ones ie do you have to up speed etc?

I suggest you leave everything the same and run a series of test prints as your baseline before going any further. Don't try to change too much all at once and you're going to end up with more problems than you started with. Can you print faster with the bondtech? Sure. Twice as fast? Maybe. Don't f...

Re: Can old PVA be reviveled in an oven and if so how

I think this is a better question to ask the manufacturer of the PVA filament. I don't see why you couldn't dry it out in an oven, but I don't know PVA too well so I can't tell you what temperature and for how long. Good luck.

Re: Error in slicing - ArchiCAD->STL->Ideamaker

The problem is with ArchiCAD, not ideamaker. If you run your exported STL through some type of analyzer you'll see that the model you exported is not a complete manifold.

Re: Idea maker with xyz DaVanci pro

I don't think you can directly. I think you'll have to save the Gcode from IdeaMaker and then import it using the XYZ software. It needs to be converted into their proprietary .fw format and uploaded through their software. IdeaMaker won't talk to the Davinci Pro.

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

Ultem prints at 325/330C with 175C heated bed. If you can get your hardware up to those temperatures then in theory you should be able to print with it. I can't provide any more details than that so proceed at your own risk.
