Re: Reprint Last Job

If you don't want the heated bed to shut down, delete the M140 instruction in your end script or set it to your desired idle temperature. Can this be done on a per-profile basis ? There are some times I want to bang out a bunch of the same parts when I'm around the printer during the day, but there...

Re: Need help with printing Poly Support

I tried PolyMaker PLA and polysupport dual extrude to print a Hilbert cube successfully without much trouble. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:16343 If I could get the Hilbert cube to print successfully, I would be the happiest 3D printing geek around :) I have much bigger parts that I want to pri...

Re: Need help with printing Poly Support

I'm still having problems getting anything else to print w/ PolySupport BTW. I've managed to dual-extrude with 2 different PLAs with different temperature profiles to print successfully. I've been able to print out any number of things w/ PolySupport by itself. When dual-extruding with PolySupport,...

Re: Need help with printing Poly Support

Raise3D used to sell lots of different filaments, but right now, they only seem to sell 3 kinds of PLA. @jetdillo: where did you find the Poly Support to purchase? I actually got it off the Raise3D store site a couple weeks ago, right about the time I bought another V2 HotEnd. I just checked the si...

Re: Built in webcam server working on my new N2

Getting a compatible camera working that is A. affordable and B. not a malware factory is a bit of a crapshoot. One of my business partners at our old space bought the camera that's supposed to be compatible w/ the N2+ and fits the printable bracket. I took a look at it and basically refused to use ...

Re: Coasters

My first thought is not the buildplate, it's the fact this Spring is all over temp wise. The thing you have to understand is you do not have a patent protected chamber temp control and even heated airflow. That's literally the line in the sand between a over $10k+ patent protected printer and a con...

Re: Filament Chewing during dual extruder prints

I managed to get some dual-color PLA 20mm cubes to print last night: 20180408_215023.jpg I'm still stuck on getting PLA/PolySupport to work though. The Polysupport runs fine, but the PLA side just starts clicking pretty much from the start. After the extruder-switch, I might get one PLA layer out of...

Re: Need help with printing Poly Support

Oh, also, Polysupport is really soft, slippery, and stretchy, and so may slip in the stock Raise feeder. Have a close look at what's happening if you continue to have failures to see if feeder slippage is the issue. Various mods to fix slippage have been discussed elsewhere here. Have you published...

Re: IdeaMaker support for 3DConnexion SpaceNavigator for Notebooks.

Bumping this up. Is SpaceMouse/SpaceNavigator support anywhere on the roadmap for Ideamaker ?
Doesn't seem like it would be that hard to add and there's a good bit of interest in having it from the community.

Do other slicers like S3D/Cura, et. al support 3DConnexion products ?

Re: Bondtech BMG upgrade for the N series

I found the perfect tension for me is to screw it all the way in and release by 2.5 turns. I marked a line on the knobs so I can visually confirm 2.5 turns easily. This setting was recommended to me by bondtech tech support. For someone new to the bondtech are you guys discussing the side quick rel...

Re: Bondtech BMG upgrade for the N series

I'm wondering if there is an actual guide or tutorial somewhere on how to properly set the tension on the sidescrews on the BMG Dual, other than just by trial-and-error and jams and hot-end uncloggings ? Some of the chewing/stripping problems I've been having recently has made me want to revisit thi...

Re: Built in webcam server working on my new N2

I just got a new N2 single last week and while it was printing I'd thought I'd take a look around the touch screen tablet using SSH shell. I was trying to see how they had it setup. Imagine my surprise when I saw they had put in mjpeg-streamer! I've used that app before on small robots to get video...

Re: Raft and bottom layers problem

I think I kinda know what the cause is. It had something to do with the bed level. I re-level it again (for about 3 hours) and it now is almost not as bad anymore. I don't know why re-leveling the bed made it better but it did somehow. You probably adjusted your Z-height up and just didn't realize ...

Re: Filament Chewing during dual extruder prints

I've pretty much bailed on the current model I was trying(Hilbert cube). I'm now thinking it's bad G-Code being generated or something.

Re: TOP COVER Replacement N2+N2 Plus

I'd also be interested in printing this. I got my N2+ from a failed startup, so it came with all the functional bits but not the lid. I top-feed from a PVC-pipe rig so the mods I'd probably make would be holes in the top to feed filament through and also a larger hole to attach a fume hood/duct to. ...

Hi, Back after being away for a few days. The STL can be found here on Thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2741800 It's meant to be a first-layer calibration test for the whole bed.

Filament Chewing during dual extruder prints

I'm experiencing some consistent filament chewing when doing dual-extruder prints. Both nozzles print fine for multiple hours individually, but when I try to do even a simple print that uses a separate extruder for support or for a different color, one of them will start chewing at the filament and ...
