Nice!
How many pieces is this ? What sort of post-processing did you have to do ?

Re: PETG and what brands

Who has had success with PETG material and what brands? I have tried MatterHackers PETG Pro and it stops extruding part way through everytime and is a pain to unclog the machine. I bought about half a dozen spools of the MadeSolid PETG that MatterHackers had on clearance. The price was right and it...

Optimizing for printing hollow/empty objects

I'm wondering if people here have any specific advice for printing things like boxes, containers, etc. that are meant to have lots of empty space in them. I'm trying to print a container to hold random kitchen items and getting print times estimates of 6-8 hours for a box that's 4 inches on a side w...

Re: Finally got dual-extrusion working...

Very nice! Very well done on the persistence to get it working correctly. Note that if you do anything that loosens the nozzle or printhead in any way, you will need to remeasure your x and y offsets to the right hand extruder. So no changing nozzles unless you are willing to recalibrate everything...

Re: Extruder Jam and stuck fillament Pro2

Been printing all week non stop since i got the printer for work and it worked great. But when I came in to check the printer today, I noticed that there was a jam, and found that it happened at the extruder gear. The filament was chewed through, so the top part just came out, while the bottom half...

This is the "Gunstar" spaceship from the movie "The Last Starfighter", found on Thingiverse as https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:14639 I printed it out this weekend as a gift for a friend who is a big fan of that and other SF movies from the '80s & '90s. There's going to be a...

Re: Improvements by using TMC2130 driver.

Done and done. As others have said, as hardware upgrades go, this is pretty darn easy. It took me about 20 minutes, with 5 of that going to the actual operation of replacement and setting DIP-switches and the rest going to getting access to the control box, noting orientations, looking at Jetguy's p...

Fume Hood

I'm wondering what people here are doing for fume extraction and fume hoods. I've been using PLA for most of the past year or so and only occasionally printing ABS, so having a box fan set to "exhaust" that fits into the window next to my N2+ has been fine. I'm starting to print more PETG,...

Re: Successful ASA Settings

Thanks for all of this. I have an ASA project coming up. Would you all say that "ASA Juice" is required as much as "ABS Juice" is for printing ABS ? My spool of MATX showed up a few days ago and I just got around to trying it out last night. The following settings have worked fo...

Re: Improvements by using TMC2130 driver.

[...] One additional note: If you upgrade the stock A4988 drivers to other drivers like 2208s or 2224s, there is a chance that motor rotation direction could be wrong (backwards) for those axis. That either requires simply moving the wiring order in the connector socket (swap the 2 wires at either ...

Re: Bondtech Dual set-screw

One week later and I wanted to just bump this thread a bit to point out that replacing the set-screw on my left extruder has indeed solved the problem. I took a 2.5mm M3 set-screw, like I mentioned in the link above, ground it down to 2mm, dunked it in Loctite Blue, wiping off the drips and screwed ...

Re: Palette+ and N2 Set up

For those of you who have the Palette+, what would you say your main uses of it are ? Better multi-color ? multi-material ? I don't run my printer as a business/service bureau, so I don't have a business need to justify it at the moment. Mosaic is having a 20% off sale right now though on the Palet...

Re: Improvements by using TMC2130 driver.

I'm looking at the Panucatt site right now. Is the Digipot version of the SD2224 compatible with the N2+ or do I want the manual adjustment version ? Manual. Okay, ordered. At $26 incl. shipping for two of them, like Jetguy said, how can you not ? This will probably be next weekend's upgrade. Got '...

Re: Storage Box For V2 Hot Ends

Only if they are exactly the same size/shape as the V2 hot ends. I do not think so ... The pro2 is slightly smaller in the heatsink and upper mounting boss, but the heater block is the same. Point being, I think it would fit or be relatively easy to adjust the size- just have "extra" room...

Re: Storage Box For V2 Hot Ends

It shouldn't be too hard to adjust the size of the various features since this is done in OpenSCAD.
I'll take a look at it this weekend if I have some time.

Finally got dual-extrusion working...

After a lot of testing and tweaking and some minor surgery on my Bondtech, I'm pretty confident that I have dual extrusion working reliably now.

Re: PolyFlex not loading after PLA

This is my first time with PolyFlex. I removed the PLA, did a cold pull with PLA, and then tried to load the PolyFlex at 245 (per @Julia Truchsess). All I get is clicks from the BondTech extruder. When I return to PLA, it extrudes just fine, so there is no blockage. I assume that there are dregs of...
