Re: Bondtech Raise3D DualDirect upgrade

I also have a Bondtech Dual for sale - used, so asking $125, including Priority Mail to US addresses. Works perfectly. Selling because I down-converted to a Bondtech Single.
Shoot me a PM.

Re: Wifi Camera?

OTOH, per another recent thread on the topic, it works OK if you are willing to fool around with internal software changes on the printer.

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 ...

Re: Touchscreen Firmware 0.9.7 Release Note 2018.1.16

Using Ethernet, file uploads for me were amazingly slow and unreliable, while WiFi has worked perfectly, so I gave up on using wire. This on 0.9.7.

Re: ABS warping

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.

Re: Wanting to go from single to dual extruder

With a fixed second head, even if adjusted perfectly, there are too many times when a print gets messed up by the second head traveling across material printed by the first head. All plastic shrinks when cooling, which usually causes it to curl upward, right into the path of the other head. I also g...

Re: ABS warping

That's assumed necessary as soon as you take the glass with the buildtak and replace it with the glass without.


You don't need to replace or re-level anything and probably won't even need to adjust the print height - just flip the buildplate over and print on the glass side.

Re: ABS warping

That would simply give more warping. It's the cooling and shrinkage that causes the issue.
I print about 95% ABS. On PEI adhesion is not an issue even for large parts.

Re: Jerk settings for Bondtech?

Wow - thanks for the explanation, Jetguy. My trivial experience agrees: while having no idea what I was doing, I had run the x/y jerk up to 15, and noticed quite a bit more ringing. Later, for a recent print I had set it down to 9, noticed how quietly the N2 extruder was running, and got nice clean ...

Jerk settings for Bondtech?

The Bondtech extruders are substantially lighter than the OEM, reducing the moving mass by as much as 2/3. This should greatly reduce the overshoot on direction changes, and thus reduce the "echo" ripples that appear after a sharp corner during fast printing. The x/y jerk setting affects t...

Re: Need assistance with Bondtech installation problem

My conclusion was correct - swapping connector pins 3 and 6, as shown on the diagram on the Bondtech web site will pop the extruder chip. Fortunately, having a "spare" (the second extruder) I was able to swap in the known-good one for the primary extruder. For the record, the correct pin s...

Need assistance with Bondtech installation problem

I recently bought a Bondtech Single extruder, to replace a Bondtech dual-extruder, as I've not found any use for dual-extrusion in several years of 3D printing. Physical installation was easy, then I plugged in the E0 wire to the new Single extruder. It ran backward. So I went to the Bondtech site, ...

I have a runout sensor on order, but of course, nothing on that either.
