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: Wanting to go from single to dual extruder

Personally I'm converting from dual-extruder to single, with the new Bondtech single upgrade on the way.

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: Thermal-Protector - available soon to all

I'm really curious how one would remove that offending pin down inside the shroud without breaking anything else.

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.

Re: Shell a must?

I just checked; it appears that Cura can do this - at least the Layer View shows what I think you are seeking. Recent Cura also has a setting that might help for this requirement: where to place the outer "skin"- skin extrusion lines completely inside the stl surface, centered on the surfa...

Re: How to clean the threads in the hotend

You're lucky it's ABS. Soak it in acetone to dissolve any plastic that isn't carbonized. Then use a brass brush for the remainder.

Re: Model release

Remove the plate and rub ice on the opposite side of where the print sits. Be sure that the glass is cooled down to room temperature before using ice on it, or you will surely crack the glass plate. A better method is to allow the plate to cool and then put the whole plate into the freezer for a fe...

Re: Printer wont turn on (No power)

BTW, the fuse may look perfect and not blown, but not actually work. If it looks OK, you still need to use a meter or circuit tester to check.
Raise3D support told me that this fuse has been an issue more than once.

Re: Bad slicing of 1,2 mm thick walls.

Try a different slicer. Cura works well with the Raise3D.
