Re: Printer stops extruding

Thanks for the reply jetguy! With your help I was able to get it running again. You were correct it was slipping and grinding. I ended up adjusting the voltage to the stepper motors and they cooled down a ton. I also moved the stepper motor over a little bit and it appears to be gripping the filamen...

Printer stops extruding

Hello All, I have had my printer for about 8 months now and it has been running for the most part flawlessly. As of lately the printer will not get through a print. It always just stops extruding generally within the first couple layers after the raft or even during the raft. IMG_20180728_085243.jpg...

Single VS Multiple Rafts for multi part prints

Is there a setting to decide if a multi part print will get a single raft or a raft for each part? It seemed like before I was only getting one raft that went under all the parts, now it seems like I'm always getting a raft per part but I don't recall changing any settings. I think there is plus sid...

Light Switch for LED's and sleep mode for LCD screen

I really enjoy the LED's and the LCD screen but wish there was a way to turn them off during long prints. I was thinking maybe a light switch for the LED's and a sleep mode for the touch screen so that it would turn dark and just have a light splash screen. Like how they have on the Stratasys Fortus...

Re: Bed Calibration G-code with pause attempt

We need to judge whether it has any risk to the machine to open the customer code here. The first we can thought is, if customer define Z value to move up, nozzle will crash the model or build plate. Well with that logic someone could do the same with the start/end g-code as well.... I don't think ...

Re: Bed Calibration G-code with pause attempt

Since you will be fixing the firmware can I ask for an addition to be made to idea maker? In the custom G-Code tab can you add one for Pause that way the user can control what happens during the pause... I notice that it goes to X 0.0, Y 0.0... I would want to do something more like raise up off the...

Bed Calibration G-code with pause attempt

Last night I was calibrating the bed and got tired of jogging the machine using the touch screen so I wrote down the 13 (x,y) positions and tried to write some G-code. The attempt was to automatically heat up the nozzle/bed and then move to each of the 13 positions while pausing in between so that I...

Push Notifications

One feature that I would like to see added is push notifications to the phone.... similar to what Repetier-Host has.
Its awesome to get notified when the print is done/paused.

Lowering Bed to bottom after print is done

After the print is done I figured it would be good to lower the print bed so that I could take the print off through the door instead of going from the top. To do this I edited the end G-code to the following and its been working great so I thought I would share: M104 S0 M140 S0 G91 G1 E-1 F300 G1 Z...

Re: Recommended settings for Simplify3D?

Does anyone know if the S3D profiles for the N2 have been fixed since the last post or have good settings at this point in time for S3D? I'm looking to purchase it for some of its extra features but don't want to waste my $$ if its not compatible

Is there a way to send G-code manually in ideamaker

Is there any way to send g-code manually to the printer in ideamaker? Something like "g1 z235" so I could move the bed down without having to do it in 10mm increments via the touch screen?

Print isn't centered on bed

Just got my N2 and I'm noticing that it tends to favor the lower right hand corner where it the home position is. I was trying to do a 11.5 x 11.5 square test to check the level and it ran into the binder clips... yet there is plenty of room at the top and the right of the plate. Is there a way to s...
