Re: Raise3D Yellow PLA

Would you mind PM me the serial number of your printer and the name of your supplier? We want to check more details with your supplier of your printer and the replaced printer on your supplier's hand. Forgot to include my suppliers name in the PM I sent. It is 3DGBIRE in the UK and they have been a...

Would you like to help check whether you can see the same issue with both left and right sides? Yes, it's the same both sides. https://forum.raise3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=20776 The same sensor fits either side, my first E2 was returned for replacement because by then it had had three sensor ...

Re: Two colour print

Thanks for the help, I did manage to try it out making a small dog tag in yellow and put a name on it in blue and it turned out okay. I made it in Fusion360 and did the dog tag as one STL and the name extruded as a separate STL, all on the same axis. Assigned one extruder to one STL and the other ex...

Re: Two colour print

After more looking at the manual and some head scratching I think I need to prepare two STL files and merge them in Ideamaker.

Two colour print

The information in the Ideamaker manual seems to show a different set up than I can see in the slicer for my E2 for printing a different colour on the same print. I want to be able to be able to put a name in a different colour on a print and would appreciate being pointed to the relevant informatio...

Re: Filament Runout Sensor Issues with Pro2 and E2

Turns out that the sensors won't read Raise3D Yellow PLA with any consistency, my problems started when I put a roll of Yellow PLA in. Now printing Blue PLA in the same " faulty " sensor and there is no problem. White PLA and Red PLA did not give me any sensor problems. Yet to try Orange P...

Re: Faceted circumference

Thanks, it's all new to me but I think I just found something in Fusion360, that makes a lot more less noticeable smaller ones.

Faceted circumference

I drew a 85mm circle in Fusion 360 and extruded it 8mm to form a lid for a circular container.

When I printed it the circumference is all faceted and not a smooth circle, is there a way to alter the settings somewhere, possibly in the slicer ?

Re: More filament sensor problems

I reckon your issue is filament related. The E2 uses optical sensors that are sensitive to certain filaments, particularly translucent filaments. The first thing I would do is change the filament and try again. I'd like to bet it is not machine-related but filament related. Just done a 1.45 hr prin...

Re: More filament sensor faults

Do the symptoms change with different colors of filament? Is the filament sensor securely mounted within it's housing? (This would point to a QA issue during assembly.) At what insertion depth does filament trigger the sensor? Is it consistent? Can you trigger the sensor and cause it to change stat...

Re: More filament sensor faults

The Bowden tube fits in a standard screwed in airline type fitting, it cannot get past the end of that and into the sensor. It is seated well clear of the sensor. When the sensor triggers and the light comes on it will go out again simply by lifting the tube up, so it seems the sensor is sensitive t...

Re: Filament sensor paused print? Common issue?

My replacement printer managed three minutes into its first print before the filament sensor stopped the print. Changed the yellow PLA out and put blue PLA in....no sensor problem now it seems.
Yet to test other colours.

I returned my E2 because among other things it was on it's third filament sensor from new beginning of July, so about a six week time span. One of the replacements was actually faulty from the get go !! Just put the first print through the brand new replacement printer and three minutes into its ver...

Re: Start up wizard

You can enable/disable or run any calibrations that the startup wizard runs through from the settings menu's. We would suggest running through the entire offset calibration menu if you are worried about any offset values on the machine. Thanks, i'll try this new printer today and see what happens r...

I was on my third filament sensor with a E2 bought new beginning of July. Just received a new replacement machine because of other issues as well, how long before the same issues start again who knows ?

Is there any way to get the start up wizard active again. I've done a factory reset but would like to go through the initial new user wizard again. My printer was checked for a wrong fan connection before I got it, so although it is brand new there is no set up wizard available, just concerned that ...
