Re: Questioning Pro2 Product Quality - Ongoing Issues

I just found out that my printer needs a new extruder board and motion controller board. Another $470 and it is still within the year that I purchased the machine but they only warranty things that actually may fail for 90 days so neither are covered. NICE!!! I have to say I am very disappointed. T...

i can also recommend Arctic TC (temperature controlled) fans. 500 rpm idle. linear speed increase when sensor hits 32C (89.6F) ARCTIC F12 TC ARCTIC F12 PRO TC IDEAL TEMPERATURE CONTROL: The temperature sensor is on a 40 cm cable and can be placed in the warm areas of your computer.

Re: half of the touch screen does not work

I had half my screen stop responding to touch now all of it does not respond. The price for a new screen is absolutely ABSURD!!!!!! For others that have this ... you prob figured this out already but you can plug in any usb mouse and it works. The screen is rotated so using the mouse can be tricky....

Re: Questioning Pro2 Product Quality - Ongoing Issues

I can ditto for above. I purchased my Pro2+ under the assumption that it was an "Industrial Grade" machine capable of being reliable. I can forgive some things. I can't expect it to be perfect of course. However, it is most certainly not a $6k machine. I have been documenting my experienc...

Re: How is the Pro2 compared with Prusa i3 MK3S and Tiertime printers?

I would advise to stay away from the Pro-2 until they fix the issues people complaining about (check the forums),i too have 2 MK3s and its my best printer and most reliable but the build volume is a little small. i have two Pro-2 and i am currently facing issues with both of them, one of them had a ...

Re: Fan Upgrade

Hi John,

I agree, the mosquito is a better option but i'd rather try using the hardware i have and then once i complete this project then i can move on to something new. I have already shortened the E3D. but i would like to know whats the total weight of the mosquito hotend please.

Re: Fan Upgrade

Here is the new design, the first one worked but wasn't as good and was too long, this basically has a 2mm height adjustments and is only about 45mm from top to bottom of heat sink. The Middle Nut (not yet added a Belleville washer) adjusts nozzle height while side grub screw for alignment. It will ...

i think both look like they are the same diameter but one is worn out from printing.

Re: Fan Upgrade

I agree its too long and the fixture Raise is using isn't the best for this solution,With E3d you really don't need the the last couple of fins as most heat is transferred at the bottom ones. With the Mosquito the other issue might be the way its clamped at the bottom, not very rigid. Lets see what ...

Re: Fan Upgrade

Hi John,

Good Job with the Mosquito mods, nice and simple.

With E3d, you can just machine the top on a lathe to make it fit using Raise mount, but i was thinking something along these lines.

You basically rotate the top brass fitting to adjust the height height.

Re: Fan Upgrade

Either my dimensions are off or the model for the mosquito i downloaded from their site is not correct but in my model they clash or just barely touch, i have to re-check again. Are you using the original Raise Heater cartridges ? do they fit the mosquito or need modification ? What about the screw ...

Re: Fan Upgrade

Curious how you're attaching yours to the nozzle lifting shaft - I basically copied Raise's solution and just clamped onto the existing shaft - not ideal but I didn't want to take the whole lifting mechanism apart. BTW they just barely clear each other in this configuration - the clearance is bette...

The Mosquito hotend will work but might require more work, i'm just done with R.E the head and investigating.

Re: Fan Upgrade

I think the Mosquito is the better route if you're going to switch to a different hot end entirely - smaller, lighter, shorter and more better. I have the design for the adapter plate if you want it. -john Thats why its important to R.E the complete assembly and then we shall find out which extrude...

Re: 8.5 day, 1242.5 g print - Am I tempting fate? - Questions

I had a print fail on my Pro cause filament run-out detection didn’t work, what happened was the end of the filament got stuck to the spool and it kept grinding and printed in air. That was with a different brand of PLA, but just a warning. I would be interested to see it run this print without any ...

Re: Fan Upgrade

This is what I really want to get up and running.... I'm pretty sure this 50mm blower can keep the anemic heatsinks cool enough to not need water cooling. Need to set it up and measure the temps on the heatsinks - this thing moves some serious air. https://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/sunon-fa...
