Pro Upgrade Kit

Postby Mike101 » Tue Jun 05, 2018 11:22 pm

Is there a plan to release the Pro updates it a kits for the original N2's?
I have removed the right extruder due to knocking and would like the liftable hot end update.

I'll just consolidate the answers from all the same questions posted everywhere.
http://forum.raise3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=8978
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.

http://forum.raise3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=7113
Could you please give a time frame? I am in the process of purchasing a 3D printer either from Raise3D or from another brand. The sooner I have all the information to make an informed decision the better. Thanks

We are doing our best effort to have news about this before the end of May.

We are still analysis the feasibility and cost of using some components of Pro2 in N series and, if we are successful, propose an upgrade package.

Most recent post I found viewtopic.php?f=2&t=7107&p=32014&hilit=pro2#p31804
Just got feedback from Marketing team that we would start pre-sales in mid-June and you would see the list of possible upgrade kits you can choose at that time.

So bumping this again, it's now July and not a single word on upgrade kits, the electronics, the moving head design.
At least offer the basic parts (extruder moving nozzle mechanism, the electronics package, heated bed package).

Don't forget the missing-for-a-year camera option for the N-series.

Apparently Raise3D is not interested in offering any upgrades for the N2, and has chose to stall the N2 owners forever with ongoing bullshit and no upgrades.
If anyone asks, I won't ever be recommending Raise3D to anyone, because of these continuing lies about "upgrades" that might meet the announced specs.
I am Very Disappointed.

I wonder though, is raise3d going to give a better deal then just buying direct from bondtech for those parts?

I haven't paid attention to buildtak pricing. I just print straight on glass with no buildtak on it. (either side)

I'm ready for #3 and #4, but after a year waiting, I'll believe it when I see the items listed for sale.

They are not really upgrades i think most n2 owners already have bondtech extruders. The camera should have been on the n2 already and the silicone socks should just be spares anyway. If thats all thats on offer i wont be buying raise3d again.

AGMech this is also my opinion. I think the best feature, the height-adjustable head, is not includet in this upgrade kit. The only think i don't have at my N2 is the cam, but i don't realy need this.
So my Question is, is it possible that they make a upgradekit for the head. This would be great!

We have analyzed and tried, but due to the different design of the print head and hotend, it's not able to achieve for N series printer.
