MakerGeek's Raptor High Temp PLA projects

Postby Jetguy » Thu Aug 18, 2016 2:53 pm

Printed on Raise 3D N1 and N2 in parallel. It took many, many, many hours (longest parts were 38 hours) and nearly 3 rolls of MakerGeeks Raptor high temp PLA.

Again, nearly 2 full rolls of MakerGeek's Raptor PLA (since you might leave this one outside in the sun).

What were the settings you used for this filament?

Outrageous work! Love it. I just printed some Raptor yesterday. It came out fairly nice. I dont feel i have it dialed in, and want to test more. I was printing it at 230, 0.25mm height at 40mm/s - and just dont think it's perfect yet. It was good, but not perfect.

230C extrusion, 50C bed, default fast profile in Ideamaker. No special settings at all.

Thanks, just confirming. I've been messing around with it and that's exactly what I have been printing with.

Is this basically just high glass temp PLA, like the raise stuff?

Sort of... but not really.

It is more flexible, you can tear it but it does not shatter. tearing it takes some effort with pliers. Its pretty close to R3D but just more abuse resistant.

Interesting. I am going to chalk this up to MG filament doesnt work for me on any printer and I'm cursed.

I tried using Raptor in the Wanhao and on the N1. I tried 230 and 230 with 70 bed glass/hairspray. A few short prints (30m to 1h) worked perfectly. But any print over 2 hours fails mid way. Sure enough last night a print that was 4 hours died at hour 3. It stopped extruding (no clicking or grinding, no clog) and had thin hair on the last layer. I unloaded the filament, clipped about 1 inch off the end, loaded it again, and it extruded fine.

That happens with literally EVERY roll of maker geek filament i have. PLA, PETG and now Raptor. I have something like 7 or 11 rolls that I just cant use, sitting in a tupperware with Damprid to keep them dry.

I am thinking it's either I need a better extruder (Bondtech time?) or there's heat creep to the cold end making the filament gum up after a certain time. The Wanhao IS insulated, and I bought insulation for my Raise which arrives today. I cant think of anything else.

Going back to Raptor after purchasing two more rolls. I have been having problems getting this second roll to print.

Just curious what temps and retraction you're (currently) printing the Raptor at. I just tried 6 prints, starting at 235 and going down to 220, 215 and then trying retraction at 50mm/s for 1.6mm then 30 for 1.2mm and then 20 for 0.8mm and each time I got terrible grinding during retraction of a spiral vase that ended up plugging the gear and air printing. I did notice the air printing started earlier with each round, so im wondering if i need to be at 240 or even 250 ... thoughts?

I see you were at 230, but 230 gives me the same issues at 235. I'm printing a spiral vase with a bit of retraction and thought perhaps THAT was the culprit for the grinding. However, slowing it down and reducing the distance didn't improve the result.

Appreciate any feedback if you're still successful with it.
