Re: N-Series Hot End Silicon Socks

The reason why we adjust the price of build surface is that we want to involve the shipping cost into this item. A 71.5% increase in price seems pretty extreme to "involve the shipping cost." Besides, does that mean that if we were to order multiple sheets of BuildTak in the same order th...

Where is the support you are speaking of? I see a wipe tower and a wipe wall in that second image, but nothing else.

Re: N-Series Hot End Silicon Socks

Just wanted to echo my desire to see these released for sale. I'd buy a bunch of them as soon as they were available; my own silicone sock starting to look really sad. https://imgur.com/iOQPH2K On a tangentially related note, why are the BuildTak sheets for the N2 $60 in the Raise store?

Re: Which Filament

Look into Polymaker Polysmooth. It requires some post-processing (and additional equipment to perform that post-processing with), but I understand that the results are pretty great.

Re: Shifted print

How is your bed adhesion? The only reason I ask is that I had the same issue every time I would print something large because force on the part would cause the glass plate to shift slightly if the part was really stuck down well. The build plate is not secured by anything other than a tiny bit of fr...

Re: "Board Error" on N2 Dual

Nevermind, I think I found the problem. This started after I removed the second hot end, as described in this post: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=9707&p=33423&hilit=firmware#p33423

I will flash the N2 Single firmware and see if that fixes it.

"Board Error" on N2 Dual

I've been getting this error fairly often recently. It forces me to restart my system but doesn't seem to harm anything and only occurs after print jobs are complete or when the printer has been sitting idle for a while. I have a relatively new (less than six months old) N2 Dual. Anyone have any ide...

Re: RAFT can not be solved ...

Under "Platform Additions" there is a setting called Raft Gap from Model. This controls how far away the nozzle moves vertically from the raft surface before starting to print the model and supports. The value should vary depending on your material and the size of your print, but I've foun...

Re: Tramming/Leveling the bed

I level mine at 80C. If you do it cold it can end up all wonky due to thermal expansion when it's heated.

Re: Berd-air print quality issue

I don't know much about the Berd system, but is it possible that the pump itself is overheating and producing hot air to begin with? If so, that could be why your quality got worse when you decrease the length of your tubing.

True. Of course, they have adhesive-backed silicone sheets in a ton of varieties. McMaster is a good resource for stuff like that.

Re: N2-V2 bed plate clamps

But as EldRick has mentioned, maybe talcum would keep the silicon attached to the build plate. Or maybe there is a heat tape on the market that only has one sticky side. I'm way too busy to investigate but I am interested in an even better solution. Maybe something like this? https://www.mcmaster.c...

Nice idea using the stops for the y-slide. I have actually never encountered a problem with the glass sliding in that direction. Was that the problem you are solving? It was.

Re: N2-V2 bed plate clamps

I took a slightly different approach to prevent the glass from sliding on my bed. I just made little stops that clamp to the aluminum structure through the slotted holes to provide upright guides that the glass just nestles between. They are out of the way of the nozzles and not actually affecting t...

Re: Ideamaker raft greyed out.

If you have "Raft Only" selected under the "Platform Addition:" dropdown menu, then there is no skirt or brim. That is why it is grayed out. If you change the drop-down selection to "Raft With Brim" or "Raft With Skirt" then it will allow you to make changes i...

Re: Fume Hood

I just made a filter casing with a small HEPA filter and activated charcoal filter that I attached a USB-powered blower fan to and set on top of the printer. It's cheap, easy, and doesn't require cutting into anything.

Re: Print Quality Issue, PLA on PLA, Dual Extrusion

Looks like you need to adjust your x and y offsets for your nozzles. You'll find the values under "Printer Settings" in IdeaMaker. The way to measure that offset is to print four 200mm test cubes at once. Arrange them at +/-15mm relative to the center of the build plate and stagger which n...
