N2 Pro printhead on a regular N2

Postby EastBaked » Thu May 31, 2018 6:32 pm

Hi all,

title pretty much says it all.

I saw the latest newsletter with the n2 pro series announced. Looks pretty good, and while I could use an easier to setup/level bed, the improvements (bondtech extruder, fumes filtering fan) don't justify discarding my "old" n2/n2+ to switch to a pro.

I originally bought both my n2 with dual extruder setup, however I quickly realized that dual extrusion was not going to work reliably with both extruders at the same height all the time.

Haven't played with it in a while, but was wondering whether it would be possible to replace the entire printhead assembly of an "old" n2 to the upgraded version of the "pro" series.

Basically considering doing either that or a Palette+ combined with bondtech extruder, but figured the swap might be a bit more plug and play, so I was wondering if anyone had info on it (doable or not ? how easily ? approx cost ?).

Thanks in advance, and happy printing !

We are currently asking the help from R&D and Manufacturing teams to help analysis the possibility of which parts on N series printers can be upgraded. Once we get conclusion, we will release more information.

Great, glad to hear that.
Do you have any info, even approximate, on a timeline for this process ?

Should be no later than next month. I have already seen some work about this project on progress internally.

Vicky, is this going to be another N2 camera debacle? Last timeline I heard was mid-June.

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

I'm so sorry but the news release of the Upgrade Kits for N series may need to have one week delay.

This one week delay was announced 4 weeks ago. Any updates?
