Re: Raising the standard cover

Thanks for posting this, this is good timing for me as I am in the process of adapting the Zimpure air filter to my N2. Can you also please share .stp files? I don’t know if the dimensions are the same on the N2 as the Pro2 and I will have to modify the back riser anyway to have a hole for the suct...

Original Extruders to spare

It's coming up on a year since I installed my Bondtech Dual in my N2+ printer and the original extruder assembly is still sitting in my parts bin. Does anybody out there need a spare and want to make me an offer ?

Re: Printing Ninjatek Armadillo

Well, as you probably know, any flexible filament is a challenge in 3D printers. This is because we push the filament into the hotend with a set of gripping gears and if that filament flexes, then it binds against the walls of the feedpath and very little force actually makes it into pushing down i...

Thanks for comfirming this as a bug Vicky.

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...

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: 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 ...
