Re: One extruder or dual-extruder?

I wouldn't say it's "highly" recommended and I wouldn't even say you HAVE to. My stock extruder works fine, but I feel like the benefits (from reading that post) are worth the change. You can read that post to see what people are saying about the benefits. Not sure about voiding the warran...

Re: One extruder or dual-extruder?

What I did was go with the single extruder on my original N2 plus, BECAUSE I knew, eventually I would upgrade to the Bondtech extruder made for the N series and it is a dual extruder. If you have no plans of doing the Bondtech mod then get the dual. As you alluded to you can remove the second nozzle...

Re: File management

I'm not sure about renaming, but if you select the file and then select print - BUT - before you actually confirm the print there is a delete button (trashcan icon) in the upper right hand corner. You can delete it from the machine that way. https://1nskua.dm2304.livefilestore.com/y4mRu1CBKb7Xh-gigE...

I'm thinking about making this jump. Is everyone running the stock hotend and nozzle on this?

Re: PETG Settings

I have absolutely no experience with PETG so I'm just spit-balling here, but have you cleaned your build surface lately? You'd be amazed how much dust, dirt, grease and grime can accumulate over time and cause adhesion issues. See my post here: http://forum.raise3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=6467 F...

Re: Erratic adhesion for new printer

Casale8 had some good suggestions. I've only had one issue with curling. A raft fixed the problem. I've also found that nozzle of 210 and a bed of 70 do very well when I use the Raise3d premium PLA. Again, ambient temperature and a few other factors may not produce the same result for you. Give the ...

Re: Thicker glass bed... questions and thoughts.

I've searched the forums for the actual thickness of the OEM glass plate. Some say 1/8" on the forums which is 3.175 mm. I haven't removed my buildtak yet to get the thickness. Does anyone know the exact thickness of the OEM glass plate?

Re: Thicker glass bed... questions and thoughts.

Increased stiffness will help keep the glass plate as flat as possible. "Flatness" or "Level" (as some say) is paramount for 3d printing.

As Jetguy alluded to a thicker plate is probably not necessary, it was just a thought I had before ordering a spare glass plate.

Re: Thicker glass bed... questions and thoughts.

Thanks for your post. Those are actually really valid points that I hadn't thought of. This happened to be one of those "last minute" thoughts I had before I ordered my spare glass. I did check my bed flatness this weekend with a dial indicator and my deviation was +/- ~0.1mm at the corner...

Re: Thicker glass bed... questions and thoughts.

"Warning, you need to adjust the Z stop adjust UP before ever installing that thicker glass because you could crash on the first attempt to home and adjust."

DAMN good thought! Thanks.

Have you ever tried a thicker plate?

Re: Cannot get a good print

1) I've found the best settings that work for me with the Raise3d premium PLA (R3DPPLA) are a nozzle of 210 deg. and a bed of 70 deg.. These are the only settings I change on the V2 hotend PLA setting in ideaMaker. When I use these settings with the R3D Prem. PLA I have no issues with prints coming ...

Thicker glass bed... questions and thoughts.

I'm going to order a spare glass plate. Before I ordered I thought about ordering a thicker borosilicate glass plate - ~1/4" or more - to increase stiffness. A few questions. 1) IF I did this, the only thing I would have to simply preform a Z gap adjustment to re-calibrate the distance from the...

This is a dial indicator mount designed for an unmodified single extruder N2 plus. Great for checking bed flatness (level). You can install this without removing any components or fans.

I've searched the forums, but I'm not sure of the technical nomenclature for the block that holds the extruder and hotend. In this block there are some extra threaded holes that I'd like to design a part for. Are there any dimensional diagrams for this block? Namely, the center points of the threade...

Re: Does a wobbly table affect print quality?

Because of it’s solid construction everything moves as one unit. I don’t believe this effects quality. Mine (N2+) is on carpet and you can see it shake and sway a little, but I consistently print incredible parts.
