Re: PETG first layer issue

[quote="Shelton"]PETG everything else printing perfect but not first layer... any ideas? Your Z-height is too low. You can tell because the pattern on the bottom is squished vs. even. Here's a IC-puller I printed in MadeSolid PETG. Notice how on the bottom layer, the lines flow evenly back...

Oh, flowrate ?
Crank that sucker down. I'm using 92-94% under the Infill.

Re: How to I stop PETG G stringing and jamming my Raise 3d N2 Dual with Dual Bondtech?

I downloaded your model and loaded it into Ideamaker and have some thoughts. First, I'd flip it 180 degrees so that you have the larger, non-spiky bits facing down and in contact with the buildplate. Ideamaker estimates it'll take 11 hours that way vs. 10 in your current orientation. That's not a hu...

Re: Major Update & Improvements for Pro2 and N Series

I did the Touchscreen and Motion Board upgrade on my N2+. I printed out an XYZ cube with PLA and it came out quite nice. No critical failures on the upgrade processes themselves. I'm looking forward to testing out the new features. Updated new Pro2 Motion Controller Board firmware to N2+? It may br...

Prefix/Postfix for filenames

It would be helpful if there were a way to set a prefix or postfix string to attach to an uploaded/exported gcode file. For example, right now, as part of my workflow, I always add "<filament_type>-<nozzletemp>-<extruder>" to the end of .gcode files I upload to my printer. So, under this s...

Electronics Box Vent: First Try

Here's the B part of the replacement Electronics Box Cover from Thingiverse with everything dialed in for PETG. It's prints like this that make a lot of the arguing and tweaking and screwdriver/knob-twisting worth it, especially when the print turns out like this on the first try. I'm really quite p...

FYI: MagicGoo has a half-life

I bought a bottle of Magicgoo from Matterhackers a month or two ago because it was on sale and I was getting tired of mixing up ABS slurry and dealing with the acetone-meets-ABS fumes in the process. Good news: It works! Even for ABS, even for ASA, PETG, PLA, the whole lot. It actually does what it ...

Re: Silicone Hot End Covers anyone tried these?

I have them on my printer and like them. Keeps the hot end cleaner. And it does heat up a bit faster. I've had them for about a week now myself and they definitely keep the temperature more stable. Heat up faster ?---Mmmmaybe, yeah, sure, I'll give you that. The only downside I've seen so far is th...

Stringy layers between support and object

Re: How tight do you make the Bondtech Spring Bolts?

Thanks and how would flexible filaments differ like ninjaflex? As Ninjaflex TPE is super-stretchy and needs to be basically be dragged kicking and screaming into the hot-end, you need to crank down more. It's been a while since I've printed flexible things, but I seem to recall something like tight...

Re: How tight do you make the Bondtech Spring Bolts?

What's worked for me over the past 10 months or so is this: With no filament loaded and the "latch" closed, turn the spring screw until you get solid, finger-tight resistance, but don't push it. From there, back off 2 whole turns. Load the (non-flexible) filament of you choice and print a ...

Re: Raising the standard cover

It is a suction head that is installed close to the nozzle to suck and filter gases from 3D printing. The hose needs to go through the enclosure because the large roundish filter thing will not fit inside the printer. I used to have my N2 in a closet outside the house when I lived in Puerto Rico.

Is this shipping yet ? What sort of adaptations are you having to do ? Thanks! I got mine in March I think but am now going about installing it.

Re: Where the devil are the silicone hot-end covers?

Got mine in the mail today. They're like little socks for your hot-ends :) If you don't have any Kapton or insulation to remove, they slip right on and fit quite nicely without having to take the hot-end assembly out of its socket. I like the fact that they cover a good bit of the nozzle as well. I ...

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...
