Re: Hot motor

Note, you may have to go to 0.45 or even 0.4V depending on your specific setup. Start with 0.5V, test, print a test cube, see how hot it gets. Lower to 0.45V if the test was still too hot. Note that the lower you go, the less force the motor has so at some point, this becomes a tradeoff of motor str...

Re: Pausing Print NOT pausing!!!

This would go a lot better for you if you inserted the pause gcode into the print file at the layer you wanted to stop at. I understand your frustration but what you do not seem to get is that there are some fundamental limitations of a 2 board control system and firmware. Beating your head against ...

Re: Hot motor

So, you have the BOHONG motor, the exact one listed in the thread. This is a double issue on a Bondtech upgrade and no real fault of the Bondtech since this is the factory motor that came with your Raise 3D printer. Again, Raise 3D changed motor suppliers and insists there is no change but we have M...

Re: Bondtech BMG upgrade for the N series

The setscrew in question is the same as shown- it's just not on the motor shaft in the BMG but the geared shaft. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7A1MEUY39HCdnR4V0tDbVNfNms/view Drivegear setscrew.jpg As seen in the BMG Dual extruder.

Re: Bondtech BMG upgrade for the N series

Just a note and I asked for Bondtech to say this, I have found 2 of the recently purchased BMG style extruders (a single lefthand flip and the dual Raise 3D specific version we are discussing) had the actual mini style hobbed gear slightly loose on the jackshaft. In other words the tiny setscrew was...

Re: Single extruder multiple color using the Mosaic Palette

So good news is, definitely ensure you choose the above "Movement Pauses" when setting up your profile. Here is the difference: With Movement Pause enabled you can see the movement controlled the ooze drip into a nice pair of lines that extend off the purge block and are unlikely to cause ...

Re: Printing Long Flat Thick Object Warping issue - Suggestion?

I assume you are using PLA based on your temps and other settings so no, do not block the fan ducts. I have long been upset with the defaults in both ideamaker and copied over to other slicers like S3D. 40C is simply not enough for good bed adhesion and I use 50C with glass + aquanet hairspray or 60...

Re: Printing Long Flat Thick Object Warping issue - Suggestion?

Clean your build tack before printing with alcohol to remove any chance of fingerprint oils, dirt, or dust Higher bed temp of 40-60C Adjust the first layer gap lower- I know you are at the fine line, but in general better adhesion is the closest you can go and not scrape and still extrude without ja...

Re: Single extruder multiple color using the Mosaic Palette

As a workaround for this, Mosaic has suggested enabling this option called "Movement Pauses". Rather than the nozzle just sitting there and oozing in the exact same place as well as transferring heat to the surrounding area, this moves without extruding for the same time period. Basically ...

Re: Single extruder multiple color using the Mosaic Palette

While printing this, I noticed a problem that was increased during this print and have raised the issue to the Mosaic team. The issue is that for a PING where the printer and gcode has a G4 dwell so that the encoder and thus palette can determine where the printer is at in the gcode- on a system wit...

Re: Hot motor

Sorry, just checking in on this but would love to help you get to the bottom of the problem and be happy printing.
This might be as simple as an adjustment.

Also, just basic 3D printing tips that apply to single or dual extrusion. #1 Proper initial first layer G-gap and overall bed leveling are the single biggest key to successful printing. #2 By getting the gap right, you should not ever use rafts. Rafts are the "training wheels" way of givin...

Re: ABS + HIPS dual extrusion layer height problem

Also, about profiles. There is nothing trick about V2 profiles. I avoid them. The only difference was the default temp was lowered by about 10C from non-v2 profiles. Again, more likely than not, you are facing PHYSICAL factors and adjustments NOT SOFTWARE. You focused time and effort on a factor you...

Re: ABS + HIPS dual extrusion layer height problem

Again, the rule is for best dual extrusion results- simply don't I know that seems like a contradictory answer but no- really listen, if you are new to 3D printing- use dual extrusion as a LAST RESORT. If you have to dual extrusion, it is going to be messy- hence the above guidance. You have to perf...

Re: ABS + HIPS dual extrusion layer height problem

Diameter of the ABS thats printed from the left nozzle is roughly 0.5mm However, the HIPS printed form the right nozzle is around 0.66 (idle head hovering over platform, extruding into the air) It's called die swell and is not really a factor in your problem. This is material specific factor becaus...
