Re: Filament run-out sensor with bond tech extruder

It will work. This has already been asked before in the previous filament detector details question topic. The filament sensor just installs in the bay where the filament spools are, just before entering the guide tube locations. It does not mount to the extruder so it does not care or matter what e...

Re: Bondtech BMG upgrade for the N series

I don't currently have the PTFE feed tube installed and it seems to print fine. Has anyone noticed that they need it or don't need it, or have any thoughts on whether or not this is necessary? When you move the extruder to the extreme left side of the bed, and it was previously printing on the righ...

Re: Thermal-Protector - available soon to all

In the electronics box at the mainboard. Putting it at the extruder would defeat the purpose of being able to detect a cable failure.
Until official instructions are released, this picture pretty much sums up the basics.

Re: First Layer survace

To further help you, here is a good article on the general topic of first layer and print adhesion. It explains the different options (and yes, Ideamaker does have all 3 options, Raft, Skirt, or Brim). There are pros and cons to each choice and understanding that (example: the cons and limitations o...

Re: Filament winds around feeder?

Also, while on the topic here, some the same answer I just gave to a non-feeding situation applies. This is a single sided drive (the gear gripping filament turns under power, the idler just rotates providing pressure into the gear) and as such largely depends on the fact the filament is a rigid &qu...

Other questions: How hot to the touch was the extruder motor on the feeder at the time of jam? Too hot to touch? Uncomfortably warm, or warm but not hot?

Re: Extruder printing in air with non-Raise3D PLA

Here is why I said all that. I do not know 100% the root cause of why you stopped extruding mid print. We simply do not have enough details from your post to make that kind of verification. What we do know is that you stopped feeding, and that ONLY with a manual intervention of unloading the filamen...
