Re: How to avoid pla bending

I had better experiences with a bed temp at 65°C and a nozzle temp at 215°C .
Sometimes I use a larger or/and thicker raft. I let the top cover on.

Re: XY rods makes noises (at the center of the buildplate)

Yes I have this similar problem. The lube is not the cause for me. The rods are perpendiculars and well aligned, no problem. The sound is abnormal, and if you were beside me, you would say the same. It is not only making noise, but the printer extruders head is vibrating. After five months of printi...

Re: My 2 Cents

Like I told to the support and Vicky; yes the extrusion motors gets very hot too. After a while, when printing ABS or so, with the top cover on, it is hot. " I can touch it for two seconds or so", like you said. You are having good suggestions. Specially "Needs a better extruder grip ...

Re: Problem getting prints to stick to buildtak

Rubbing alcohol to clean the surface of Buildtak. You should also try to adjust the distance between the nozzle and the Buildtak. Or, turn the plate on the glass side, and spray on the surface '' Strong Fixative ". ( Outside the printer, of course. And be careful not to drop the glass. ) https:...

Re: Hello everyone

Ok, I get a look at this. The small blower in the right electrical box is ok. For the Fan, I don't have the tool to calculate the decibels... The biggest sound is from the box under the printer, as shown in the picture. The power supply. I think it could be better. I always print with the top cover ...

I have the same question, and is it possible to get a better fan, below? Mine is quite loud too.
Or maybe get it changed for a more quiet one?

Good! I like that. I did almost the same, black and white too! Last week, I printed black and white parts; white ABS + black TPU, or black ABS. I had difficulties with colors mixed together... I tried many temperatures, retract, wipewall, etc... How did you achieved a good print like this? Do you ha...

Re: Help newbie n2 dual

Best settings for me with ABS:
Nozzle 240°C
Bed Plate 110°C
Turn the plate on the glass side.
Try Strong HairSpray on the glass ( Outside the printer, before heating the bed. )
Fan covers on

Re: Extruder Acrylic Cover Screws/Washers

I know it is bigger than the small O-ring we have from Raise3d, but it is good! Me I printed 3x.
It's even better; if you drop one, it is easier to find!

Yes, Maybe PLA. I don't know if HIPS that you dissolve with Limonene can work for you?

Re: Extruder Acrylic Cover Screws/Washers

I draw O'ring replacement made in TPU. Here the STL file joined.
I.D. 1/8" x O.D. 5/16" x 1/8'' thick.
It worked for me.

Re: Custom Parts

Ok, I will consider your suggestions. Thank you!
I tried a PLA raft on right extruder, and the Part in ASA on left extruder; It works for me.

Re: N2 filament feeder chews semiflex / tpu when loading

I've adjusted distance between gear and wheel and it did not help. I think issue is that gap between feeder cover and gear is too big, so flexible filament find easier place where to go. I don't think that it is correct behavior for filament to create a jam if it is hard for it to exit from extrude...

Re: N2 filament feeder chews semiflex / tpu when loading

For the Gap, it is better closer, to touch the small pulley. I realign the step motor to have a better alignment, straight. For me, after that, it never did again. Please use only the left extruder. So see the picture below to know how to adjust your stepper motor. The idea is to let the less space ...
