Re: Bed Height Adjustment Screw Slop

The sloppy height adjustment screw is easily fixed by adding a stop-nut on the screw beneath the bracket, to fix it in place when set.

Re: What is the current motion controller board firmware for Raise3D N2 series ?

1.1.6 is, of course, an obsolete elderly version of Marlin, and is long overdue for an update.

Re: PEI Build Plate - Rigid Underlayer Needed on N1?

My .5mm PEI for N2 was certainly warped, but flattened out reasonably well when adhered to the glass buildplate.

Re: Now do I clean out all traces of previous material so can keep different material nozzels nozzels clean please?

A) Do not use the material change sequence on the front panel. Leave the old filament in the nozzle when you remove it, and clear it out when you next use it, as in B). B) Instead, simply clip the current filament 1/2" above the extruder, heat the hot-end up to printing temp, and use the Utilit...

Re: Camera Installation

It would be a lot easier to feed the cable down the cable-chain hole from the outside first, then connect the camera once the cable is inside the printer in the spools area.

Re: Adjusting Z height while printing

There is no hardware restricting this: all that needs to be done is for the interface to insert a gcode command to raise or drop the bed by a fraction of a mm, perhaps .02mm or so.

Re: Adjusting Z height while printing

Z-offset adjustment on the fly would be excellent and save a lot of time and restarts.

Re: Instructions for N-series camera confusing or wrong

On mine, no double-sided tape, the wire was already installed, and the protective lens covering was on the outside of the camera, not the inside.

The guy who writes the instructions needs to talk to the guys who make the cameras.

Re: Sequential printing IM beta

Current versions of Cura support sequential printing - it works fine, I use it all the time.
You just need to specify an N2 single-extruder printer and use that printer definition - sequential is only blocked for multi-extruder printers.

Re: New hot end fan necessary - hot end fan installation

At worst, you can cut the plug and wire from the bad fan, and solder them to the wires for the new fan.

Re: Instructions for N-series camera confusing or wrong

The camera would be easier to attach if it actually came with double-sided tape. None was included with my camera package.

The answer is that they are the same.

BTW, consider proofreading your posts before you hit the Submit button - they are almost completely unreadable.

Re: Multi part G Code question

Use a different slicer. iM has a number of shortcomings, and sequential printing is probably the most major missing function. Among "free" slicers, Cura is king of the hill, followed by Slic3r and Kisslicer. All three offer sequential printing as well as other useful features, such as vari...

Instructions for N-series camera confusing or wrong

Vicki - Looking at the installation instructions for the N-series camera, on Page 2, step 4, there are three diagrams. Two of them show the camera mounted in the right-front corner, while the one in the center shows it going in the right-rear. Is this an error, or perhaps a diagram for the N1? Which...

Re: Silicone Hot End Covers anyone tried these?

Finally received the silicone covers yesterday. It certainly has been a lengthy process to get R3D to ship them.

They fit and work fine - you can actually touch a 205C hotend (briefly) without burns.

Re: Silicone Hot End Covers anyone tried these?

"...anyone tried these?"

Few people have been able them, as R3D hasn't bothered to ship them yet, unless you buy a new hot-end. They keep coming up with excuses, but these are almost as long overdue as the mythical cameras.
