Re: Reprint Last Job

@vicky: If I allow the bed heater to turn off, the bed starts to cool. The bed heats to around 40 fairly quickly, but it takes much longer to get to 100. So if I allow the bed heater to turn off while I remove the build plate, allow the build plate to cool a bit, remove the printed part, and return ...

Reprint Last Job

After a print completes, I am offered "Reprint Last Job". By the time I take the build plate off, let it cool, remove the part, and replace the build plate, the build plate heater is often down to about 50. If I need it to print at 100, I just lost some time, because it takes quite a while...

Re: Spiral print rough on one side

@Julia Truchsess: I agree. The two prints were sliced with different templates, of course. The high quality of the front of the print and the tear outs on the back of the print remain mysterious. If the temperature and feed rate settings were wrong, I would have expected the front of the print to al...

Re: Spiral print rough on one side

@detroitus, @vice chief: The hot end cooling fans are in operation, but I blocked the cooling vents at the bottom of the hot ends, because neither T-Glase nor PC like being cooled. In addition, since the defects are on the back side of the print, they are neither closer to nor farther away from one ...

Spiral print rough on one side

I've printed this object before, and it printed fine. And the section that is rough is vertical, so the shape should not be a problem. One side (the side away from the main door) is rough and has tear out, while the rest of the print is pristine. I am now using the BondTech extruder, but have no rea...

Re: Coasters

@EldRick: it is interesting how differently many of us experience things like adhesion. I have been happy with both BuildTak and GeckoTek. Turns out, for the record, that this may all have been due to my not paying attention. I switched from PLA to PC and closed all of the doors and the lid, but fai...

Re: Coasters

I take your point, but my printers are not outside. I use them inside. The temperatures in my home do not change that much. If this is indeed the issue, I guess I need to try a colder room and a warmer room and see which works better My first thought is not the buildplate, it's the fact this Spring ...

Re: Coasters

I am using the adhesive backed GeckoTek sheets My suggestion is simple. Since 2 years, I have tried Buildtak, GeckoTek plate, PrinTinZ zebra plate, PEI, hairspray, glue, blue tape, glass, etc... With ABS,ASA, PLA,TPU,POLYFLEX,PETG,etc... But the 2 bests surfaces up to now are LokBuild and GeckoTek E...

Coasters

So, today I made about 6 PolyCarbonate warped coasters. I made them on both GeckoTek and BuildTak surfaces. I made them on surfaces that were carefully cleaned with isopropyl alcohol. I made them after carefully adjusting the Z height so that the extruders started at the correct height. I used old g...

Re: Need help with printing Poly Support

Raise3D used to sell lots of different filaments, but right now, they only seem to sell 3 kinds of PLA. @jetdillo: where did you find the Poly Support to purchase?

Re: Reducing wipe walls for larger prints

Exactly. That is my suggestion. Only print (in this case) 1/4 of the length of the wipe wall, to save time and materials.

Re: Shell a must?

@Regatta: I have done exactly as you suggest (all infill, no exterior shells) for vacuforming, and it worked wonderfully. But I did not do this on a Raise3D N2 or using IdeaMaker. No reason why this should not work, though, in my opinion.

Re: Reducing wipe walls for larger prints

@Vicky: thanks for asking! Suppose I am trying to print a part which is 2" in diameter, so the wipe wall is 3" in diameter, or about 9" long. I wanted a way for the wipe wall to only be 40 mm long (but arbitrarily tall). Does that make more sense? The idea is for the wall to be long e...

Has anyone been able to print PLA with soluble support on an N2?

After weeks of trying, I am about to give up on PLA and soluble support on a Raise3D N2. I know that this is possible with other printers (Prusa, Ultimaker), which is mystifying. I started out trying PLA with PVA from Ultimachine. Their PVA proved to be a bit too runny. If I printed it cool enough t...

Re: Brim missing

Thanks so much! The brim on the wipe wall is not really useful if you're trying to get the actual underlying object to stick to the build plate!

You said " My N2 Plus came with a simple webcam." Interesting. Mine is less than 2 months old, and it did not come with one. Anyone know what is going on with this feature?

Re: Brim missing

@Vicky: I assume that you want the files for the case where I asked for a brim but it was missing; do you also want the case where the brim is present? And do you need the slicing profiles?
