Re: Loading filament doesn't stop!

Don't use filament unloading/loading at all. Just cut the old filament just above the extruder, heat the hotend, and feed material to follow the old filament in with the new filament. Unloading the filament causes a significant number of jams, when the hot filament catches in the transition from hot...

Re: N-Series Hot End Silicon Socks

That makes the price of PEI sheets look much more reasonable.

Re: Feature Request: Blip fan to 100%

Vicky, it doesn't seem to matter what you add to the development list - nothing ever comes of it, the N2 camera being an example of never delivering what was promised more than a year ago. Sad, but as a result, Raise3D is no longer on my "recommended list" of 3D printers, because you never...

Re: Pro Upgrade Kit

Apparently Raise3D is not interested in offering any upgrades for the N2, and has chose to stall the N2 owners forever with ongoing bullshit and no upgrades. If anyone asks, I won't ever be recommending Raise3D to anyone, because of these continuing lies about "upgrades" that might meet th...

Re: N-Series Hot End Silicon Socks

"And we will open the sale of these covers to be ordered separately very soon."

Is "very soon" 2018, or is it like the camera for the N2, promised, but never delivered?

Re: Shifted print

I don't know if it is related to the shifting, but I'm hoping you mean .15 or .2mm layer height, rather than 1.5 to 2.0mm. The images are too blurry to tell for sure, but they do not appear to show a 1.5mm layer height. Generally, layer height should be in the range of .3 to .7 of the nozzle size fo...

Re: Feature Request: Blip fan to 100%

If you try to start a fan at 10% speed, for example, most fans won't start - they simply stall and overheat. If you manually start the fan rotating, it will continue running at 10%, but it won't self-start. The idea is to give the fan an initial "kick" with a brief pulse to maybe 30%, to g...

Re: Bracket/Fix for N2 Rotating Z-Axis Ball Nuts

If the flats are a press-fit on the ball-nuts, then why bolt them in place at all? Why not just open up the holes for the top of the holding bolts, and press the piece on to the ball-huts from the top?

The exposed edges of the plastic enclosure are also extremely sharp. I used a plastic de-edger to smooth them to avoid cuts.

Re: Overlapping Print

Advanced Settings / Layer Panel / Print Parts in Sequential Order This setting should print the parts one-at-a-time, but appears to be non-functional, i.e. broken.

Re: Printing with PolyCarbonate

PC does not react well to printing fast, as it seems rubbery and acts like it has high surface tension while hot. IMHO, 40mm/sec is about the maximum speed for good prints - 30mm/sec is probably going to be more reliable.

Re: Overlapping Print

When printing multiple parts, printing them sequentially rather than all at once (interleaved) is much more reliable, and a bit faster as well. If one part is screwed up, those printed previously will still be usable.

Re: Gizmo Dorks vs. Buildtak PEI

The PEI from CSHyde comes with adhesive pre-applied to the PEI, making it Much easier to install on the glass, and has an option for smooth or stippled surface (I prefer the latter).
