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?

Re: First day, worst case ... injury

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. When printing sequentially, you need to arrange the parts with enough space between them that the head clears any previously-printed par...

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: N2-V2 bed plate clamps

Maybe sprinkle a little talcum on the silicone to reduce the adhesion?

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).

Re: STL Design Shared

detroitus' spool holder is the only one I've found that allows you to use the common black plastic 1kg spools with the N2 door closed, without any rubbing. An excellent design.

Re: Clips be Gone

Or maybe just pry them up until they don't press down on the glass at all, so they can act as just stops.

I take it that the glass doesn't slide on the silicone?
