Just tell me what will work

Postby treyco » Thu Aug 09, 2018 8:36 pm

I’ve had my Pro 2 for a month now and can get perfectly fine PLA prints from the left nozzle. However, I bought this printer because I needed soluable supports. I’ve tried everything I’ve been able to scrape from the forums and can’t get a single good print. I’ve used different brands of PLA and they all seem to work well. I’ve used a couple of different PVA brands and neither will print anything that sticks to the surface or to the PLA. I’ve tried BVOH with pretty much the same results. I’ve dried my materials and I’ve tried different build surfaces. Can someone please tell me one reliable combination of materials, temps, speeds, build surface, etc... that will actually work with this printer?

Whether currently you are only facing with sticking issue or some other issues too?
If only sticking, please take a look of the following thread which is some testing record we did for PVA on N series printer:
viewtopic.php?f=5&t=960&p=9040

Please enable Dense Layer and decrease the Vertical Offset of support to be 0. Those two will help a lot to sticking.

Thanks Vicky. The biggest of the problems is the PVA sticking to the build plate. In the link you sent me, you used the glass side of the plate on the N2. I have a Pro 2 and so I don’t have a glass plate to try.

You can apply glue on build surface as well. And clean the glue after with water and clean cloth.

None of this is working. It seems like whatever I put in the right nozzle (pla, or pva) seems to curl around the nozzle instead of coming out in a nice straight stream. I've opened a brand new box of Raise3d premium pla so that I know it doesn't have any moisture and it still does this on the right nozzle. So it's not just the pva.

PVA requires very slow print speed, it also starts going bad as soon as you open it I have been told. As an alternative, you could try PVB. It is called Polysmooth and is sold by Polymaker. It is soluble in Isopropyl alcohol.

I'm about to pull the second extruder off my N2 cause dual extrusion cause of the issues it has with leveling 2 print heads.

The right side nozzle even cannot extruder new PLA out properly?
