Re: Retrofit N2 with Pro series features

Personally I'd be happy if they would just release the looooong-promised camera - I have little/no interest in the other upgrades.

Re: Raise3d N2 Clogged nozzle with Wood Filament

BTW, printing with wood-filled plastics will FAR more reliable if you use a .6mm or larger nozzle.
Wood particles and a small hole is a great recipe for clogging, not so great for printing.

Re: ABS Build Surface - PEI? Geckotek?

PEI is also available with a textured surface, which helps with adhesion on larger prints.

Re: Reprint Last Job

Buy a second buildplate and just swap them.
It's nice to have a spare for when you break a plate, in any case.

Re: Filament delivery

I'm also wondering about routing of the tubing - it sure looks like it would rub against the greasy right-side smoothrod.

I'm thinking that just pushing the tubing a few inches inside the filament-feed compartment could do the same thing?

Re: Filament delivery

What did you use for the attaching screws? There is only 2mm clearance between bed and mounting bracket on my N2, and I'm wondering how you got a screw head to clear the bed?

Re: ABS Build Surface - PEI? Geckotek?

You could also replace the extraordinarily-heavy extruder with a Bondtech, and cut the sag substantially.

Re: N2 Psu Fan

a) use a 120v fan, and connect it to the power input terminals on the power supply b) use a quiet external always-on fan to cool the power supply in addition to the internal fan because it will be quieter and will ensure that the PSU gets sufficient cooling, which it might not with a quieter interna...

Re: Quieting the N2

I used a 120-volt fan, so I just connected it to the AC power connectors on the power supply. No need to mess around with DC power at all.

Re: Coasters

Flip the buildplate over to print on the glass side, and use gluestick.
In my experimentation, neither ABS nor PC stick to Buildtak worth a darn. I'm now using PEI.

Re: Wanting to go from single to dual extruder

Why did you choose SingleDirect? I saw too many prints messed up by having the second unused extruder. The main reason I bought a dual in the first place was to have a spare printhead. I had originally hoped to use the second head for a second nozzle-size, but the practical considerations finally c...

Re: Built in webcam server working on my new N2

Personally I'd prefer that it not be integrated with iM, as it's a bit of a pain opening/hiding/manipulating the various windows, and I rarely use iM as a slicer. Let us view the camera in a browser. For those using multiple printers, it seems that multiple instances of a separate program would be m...

Re: Built in webcam server working on my new N2

What camera did you use, and what's its current draw?
I've been looking for one with a wide field of view and no IR features to draw unnecessary power.

Re: what happened to the the Official Raise3d Camera?

So evidently there was never any development time spent on a camera for the N2, and we have been lied to for more than a year.
Annoying.

Re: Built in webcam server working on my new N2

I'd appreciate more detailed directions on doing this, as Raise3D does not seem likely to deliver a camera for the N2 any time this decade.
