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: N2 Pro printhead on a regular N2

Lots of us are wondering if Raise3D will ever actually meet their 2016 commitment and offer a camera for the N2.

Re: Pro 2 Plus - Build Tak Plate Replacement??

You would be far better off replacing the buildtak with PEI, as has been documented in many threads here.

Re: Motherboard fan to loud?

Just a silly thought, but perhaps one of you could contact Martin Bondeus (the manufacturer) and ask him?

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?

Re: Clips be Gone

You have retained the rear clips? Isn't that putting pressure on the back edge and potentially making it a little lower?

Re: Extruder switch gcode for Y-splitter (2-into-1 nozzle)

"...would retract filament 20cm."

You want to retract by 8"? Wouldn't that leave a completely empty feed channel?

Re: Pits in prints

Other slicers, such as Cura, offer considerably more control over the treatment of layer-start issues.

Re: First Layer Printing Issue

"But if your nozzle is to close to the bed. The raft might be ok. But higher up you get no space between the already printed plastic and the nozzle."

Not correct. Layers in the raft after the first will absorb any height issues with the first layer.

"I could be wrong,"
Yep.

Re: Unloading PLA from BondTech extruder

Never Unload the filament on an N2, as there is a fair chance that you will get a jam requiring disassembly sooner or later. Instead, just heat up the hotend to the temp the filament requires, unhook the feed tube and cut the old filament down to a half-inch or so stub. Then use the manual controls ...

Flipping it over works fine and did not damage my Buildtak. I removed it entirely after concluding that it doesn't work at all well for ABS. Now using PEI.

Re: Easy printing, high-temp material

ASA has properties similar to ABS, with much less shrinkage/warping.
