Re: Retrofit N2 with Pro series features

I tend to agree given the changes are so extensive and involve the #1 biggest pain, wiring. I don't just means a wire here, a wire there. The new board is expecting 3 wire endstops (power, ground, signal) where as the old board was 2 wire. You need to run the new bundle to the extruder and that's no...

Re: Motion Controller Board Wiring

I will say this, Raise 3D used "right sized" terminals, and by that, I mean oversized properly.
This means less heating in the first place, better contact, and the lesser chance of a failure than many of the cheap printer that fail.

#1 you are correct
#2 I pointed this out during the Kickstarter to Raise 3D
#3 my newest machine, as of last year (N2 Plus) was correctly untinned.

Re: Thermal-Protector - available soon to all

The extruder head breakout because the ribbon cable does not have locking connectors. This is the most flex prone area and subject to accidental failure mid print.

Re: Wanting to go from single to dual extruder

People have been testing the Palette with ABS. I don't have any ASA, but previous limitations and worries are no longer valid in the latest palette+. I'll have to get some ASA material and run some tests for you. The biggest problem is I do not normally print with ABS anymore. My N1 which is what I ...

Re: Thermal-Protector - available soon to all

Thanks JetGuy. Are you using the standard cable? Yes, just using the factory ribbon cable but with mainboards modified before the protection board was ever produced. As such, if I do have a cable failure, there is so much length I can just cut off the bad section (most likely to fail at the flexing...

Re: Connect to printer remotely?

ideaMaker communicates with the printer using a proprietary protocol, so unless a hacker uses ideaMaker, then he can do no harm to your printer, and if he really uses ideaMaker, then he can only do what ideaMaker can do. Short list of things one could do: #1 stop your print dead in the middle of so...

The immediate concern is you: #1 indicated a potential warning sign of a failed or failing ribbon cable previously #2 you checked it, but truth is, I know you don't even know how to check it and without the required safety board, you are playing guessing games. #3 people are just only now getting sa...

#1 we know the machine moves because jogging works "move if I tap the command on screen" #2 Sounds like you had temperature related issue at one point. #3 The starting gcode of most prints has wait points that do not execute the next line of gcode UNTIL the current line of gcode is complet...

Re: Extruder motor does not turn

So final corrected analysis. I still think cold extrusion prevention in most firmware would stop any extrusion in it's tracks. Revised look at the prime shows it to at least look correct- however, the temp error may prevent any extrusion. The few segments of actual print code being a skirt likely mi...

Re: Extruder motor does not turn

If I had to guess, you copied and pasted some starting gcode into a profile- and like you said, you don't read gcode, and let's be honest, 99% of the problem is you didn't even try. I cannot remember all the commands, but it's a simple matter of looking them up line by line. http://reprap.org/wiki/G...

Re: Extruder motor does not turn

I'd honestly try to help here but we are just missing way too much information. What printer is this? What firmware are you running? Marlin, self compiled or supplied hex? Do you have an example of your gcode that prints fine? What nozzle size? What filament size? Dual or single extruder? Assuming c...

I do not have a measurement but know it's about 2 meters. One fact that happens here is both the shorter N2 and N2Plus, and maybe even the N1 all share the same length ribbon cable and a massive amount is bundled into the base of every one of these printer.

No, there is no 12V "port". The power supply internal circuit board has a 12V linear regulator (identified by actually looking at it and verifying the part number 7812), the factory 12V fan and it's temp sensing sub circuit is there, I know for me, I just soldered to existing through hole ...

Second part is, if it was the original PSU type, the the fan was temp controlled anyway, and NO you do no...
