Re: Always the same spot hard to remove print

First layer adhesion is based on leveling the build plate and adjusting the Z gap. Too close results in the nozzle smashing hot filament into the build surface. Overall Nozzle Distance: The overall distance between the nozzle and the platform could be adjusted by turning the thumb screw on the left-...

Re: Hardware problem?

No, because I had them and wanted to see how quiet I could make the machine. The limit switch at homing click sounds loud compared to the silent XY movement of mine during a print. You can hear the extruder motor over everything else.

Re: Hardware problem?

With the top cover removed, this is what they look like. I also added NEMA 17 motor dampener/isolators between the motor and bracket. https://www.filastruder.com/products/astrosyn-damper-my17rmdamp Just note, even more minor mods to make that work- mainly for the other motor for X axis because it pu...

Re: Hardware problem?

You don't have to remove the entire top cover. There is an L bracket with 4 M4 screws into the frame. that you can access via the filament side door being open Unplug the motor cable (probably held with hot glue so a dab of rubbing alcohol on a q-tip on the glue joint, wait 30 seconds, then unplug. ...

Re: Hardware problem?

Sorry I didn't jump in earlier, I really had no idea on this problem until you mentioned that static motion test with the motors locked, and then it was pretty clear to me what the problem was. Most people with a failed coupler hear the ticking or cracking as it rotates- you never mentioned any soun...

Re: Hardware problem?

That may mean your coupler has snapped. 5 to 8mm coupler. I would buy from amazon quicker than they could ever send you one. You could be fixed and running by Thursday with 1 day shipping https://www.amazon.com/Mercurry-Flexibl ... B01E9AQQFO
$8 for 2 to have one spare.

Re: Filament Monitor / Auto Pause Feature

I don't think you understand the system or the limitations with that suggestion. The firmware and slicer of this system has to offset the position of the coordinates for the second extruder nozzle. Again, some systems like a MakerBot use a firmware stored offset and when toolchange is called, the fi...

Re: A little disappointed with the N2

On the LCD ghosting, that is not fixed by a screensaver. That is an LCD failure in and of itself. Very few units experience this but having gone through it myself, this is the actual LCD and some sort of defect in the screen. Contact support if your screen has ghosting.

Re: Multiple templates?

No, this is not yet a supported feature in Ideamaker. Same reason for the ask to support for different sized nozzles in the same print. It simply does not yet support complex process features that only a few advanced slicers (s3d is one example) supports today.

Re: Loading Files onto N2

I know it seems crazy, but again, for whatever reason, there is no context menu to copy. The current workflow assumes you leave the drive plugged in and print from it, or if it's something you would print over and over again and want it on local storage, it's transferred over the network.

Again, the current firmware does not support copying from USB to local storage via the LCD. From the "print" tab or submenu page. If you choose local storage, you have the edit icon in the upper right. If you click that edit, you get another context menu and by selecting a file, you can th...

Re: Loading Files onto N2

Easy enough, go put the USB stick into your PC or computer. There is no copy from one device to another device LCD menu option, so instead, you must transfer the file over the network (wireless or wired) using either the SCP transfer protocol or Ideamaker. Hint, local storage is how you print from t...

Re: The wire no longer came out of the nozzle

PLA material softens (not melting but softening called glass transition temp) at a lower temp than other materials like ABS. As such, if you print PLA with the top acrylic cover on the printer, over time, the heat from the motors and the heated bed will rise from ambient room temp to the glass trans...

Re: Screen won't turn off or work

Correct, because the motion controller firmware is still V1.1.1
The LCD is what is giving you the error message and it's because that version is not handling the error state correctly. That's why periodic updates come out.

Re: Print Speed Not changing?

Under cooling, minimal layer time. Remember, speed is distance over time. So, another limit here is a layer, regardless of distance defaults to minimum time of 15 seconds. This allows the material to cool and solidify before the next hot layer is applied. You can adjust this lower, but beware of you...

Re: Screen won't turn off or work

The raisepack AKA LCD updates are hard to brick. You simply download the file, put it on USB, plug into the printer BEFORE you turn it on, it sees the update file and applies it and reboots.
