Re: Cold nozzles reading 240° C

my question is, is this a loose cable in the socket or that the JST connectors were not crimped properly? do the wires pull out of the connects would be my question? if the issue is a loose cable in the socket, i would try removing the first link cover of the cable chain. I did that on my N2 and I h...

Re: LIN_ADVANCE = better extrusion control

researching the issue on marlin firmware, it was a bug a long time ago. likely the issue now is that your PID is off and needs to be configured. the issue had to due with temperature set where the printer was stabled. then when it was allowed to fall out of stable temperature and restarted, it cause...

Re: Just tell me what will work

PVA requires very slow print speed, it also starts going bad as soon as you open it I have been told. As an alternative, you could try PVB. It is called Polysmooth and is sold by Polymaker. It is soluble in Isopropyl alcohol. I'm about to pull the second extruder off my N2 cause dual extrusion cause...

Re: Ide

if the connection is dropping, you need to go into the touchscreen and limit it to 100mps and it should function better. I know after I did that I am getting faster and more stable uploads to the printer from ideamaker.

Re: Error: thermal runaway... Now both extruders unresponsive

if you have the new cable part installed between the cable and the main board, it should be reporting a thermal runaway if the ribbon cable has failed. I have not had my ribbon cable fail on my kickstarter printer. I have rewired some things on my printer but not that cable. This leads me to suspect...

Re: the temperature of the motors overheat the extruder unit

further proof that the vref on those steppers is set to high and raise3d needs to modify the closed firmware on the pro2 series to fix this issue.

Re: Shorted heating cartridge & maybe board

It was later discovered that it was possible for a thermal runaway to happen on the printer if the ribbon cable becomes disconnected or damaged. raise3d created a new part to detect this issue.

I don't know if he solved his issue.

I haven't paid attention to buildtak pricing. I just print straight on glass with no buildtak on it. (either side)

Re: E3D V6 on Pro2

just keep in mind, that you will lose build height from using this. I've had good results using the E3D V6 on my N2 with the adapter that was made for it. I don't know how much difference there is in the hotend interface between the N series and the Pro series though. The adapter is shorter then the...

Re: Pro 2 Plus extruder jams.

on my original bondtech upgrade. I had unknowingly set the vref wrong. It was twice what it was supposed to be due to how the vref on the steppers I was using works. This combined with a hot summer day, caused this issue to happen to me, where low temp plastic metled inside the bondtech casing. I pr...

Re: Pro 2 Plus extruder jams.

this is caused by 1 factor. the filament is getting too soft in the bondtech extruder and melting. 2 things can cause this. #1 voltage is too high on the stepper drivers for the stepper motors on the extruder. extra heat is transferred into the gears pushing the filament, causing it to soften and me...

Re: PVA (Flex Filament) and Pro2 Serie ?

my opinion of PVA. filament of dreams. in order to use it, you need to print extremely slowly for everything because the PVA does not react well to fast movements. so even if you are not printing it, the other material can knock it loose from the printer causing everything to fail. I tried it once a...

Re: Berd-air print quality issue

just to point out. unless you mod your printer like I have mine. you are pulling hot air from inside the printer to cool your print. even with my mod, I'm not sure if it fully prevents the outside edges from heating. likely you want to mount the pump outside of the enclosure to pull colder air in. I...

Re: Connect to printer remotely?

Given that the security is way out of date on the pcDuino and no way to update it. someone could probably hack their way into your printer and do something else with it.
