Re: Questioning Pro2 Product Quality - Ongoing Issues

The is no significant difference between two or one hotend water cooled. I had this solution for month exactly with the same offsets measured on the build plate. and its clear as the weight of the additional cooling is nothing compared to the total weight of the two steppers, the extruder gears, bea...

Re: Need less distance between dense support layers and print.

I'm waiting for this feature, too. I have other requests concerning the layer above the dense support: For getting a smooth surface above the dense support there already are some changeable settings, eg. bottom surface flowrate and extrusion width. the problem: what about shells in the same area? if...

Re: Questioning Pro2 Product Quality - Ongoing Issues

hi Dirk, Don't be shy - water cooling is a two days work and its worth it - no more clogging after many hundreds of high temp prints with closed lid:-) the second main problem with the uneven plate is more a problem of the lagging gantry because of the weight of the dual extruder. exchanging the bed...

Re: Asking for advice: E2 or pro2?

Read about all the issues of these printers carefully in the forum! I have a Pro2 and would never buy it again: The gantry las 0,25mm in the middle of the plate, and no auto-levelling. Closed source and no possibility to change software issues. Very bad hotend cooling. You can't do long time hight t...

Re: .idea files don't contain Printer, Extruder, or Template information

I asked the same question in a separate thread.
I am totally of your opinion! It’s a MUST having stable settings everytime i reuse an .idea - file. Until now a made a manual notice in notepad with the correct template for every idea-file. Stoneage:-))

Saving used template with .idea file?

Hi, My workflow: I create a new .idea file, import a model, select a template (which is related to selected profile of the left extruder). After closing the idea-file and reopening it I normally change small settings either on the imported model or on the template I formerly used together with this ...

Too much filament after nozzle change

Hi, When my left nozzle starts printing at the wipe tower after a nozzle switch, there is far too much filament coming out the nozzle. I tried different settings for retraction and also "Extra Restart Amount of Extruder Switch" (negtive and positive values), but i cannot get rid of this ov...

Re: Carbon filament & nozzle combination for Raise3D Pro2 (Plus)

Hi, I have very good results with CarbonFil from Formfutura. It prints with extremely perfect surfaces with a matte silky finish, is very strong, lightweight and absolutely perfect. BUT: I experienced poor layer adhesion of the top and bottom layer. The bottom to printbed adhesion is good, but the l...

Re: First layer lifting

I agree that z-offset is a topic here, too and will be the solution together with the adjusted flowrate. please don't talk too much about bed leveling as we all know that it is not possible to get rid of the gantry lag in the middle of the printer. at the point where you spent dozens of hours with l...

Re: Prints don't finish properly

I wonder why people from Raise, but even some customers do accept, that a warm printing area can cause jams - since i attached a water cooling (wich is not very complicated) i had NOT a single jam - ind i printed hundreds of hours with partially very difficult materials and also a lot of long time h...

Re: First layer lifting

Lowering the nozzle CAN be a solution, but in this case i would recommend slightly raising the flowrate. as you can see in the image, there even is a gap between the traces in the region, where they overlap with the shell. if it was a problem of z-calibration, there should be less gaps in this area ...

Re: Heated Bed - Time to Temperature

Best solution: Change the printing bed according to the step-by-step guide of Markus64:

https://forum.raise3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=20960

The heater is glued to the al-plate, and there is insulation below. Besides the better bed leveling it leads to dramatically shorter heating times...

Re: Fake Screws

I am of the same opinion as Markus. And besides the fact that it seems to be done intentionally, i ask myself: why is a a too short screw? if its just the case because the part is fixed on the opposite side and Raise avoided designing a separate part, they could have left the thread empty. Screwing ...

Re: Missing temperature offset correction

hi cc, please keep the feet on the ground - it would indeed be helpful if you could simply measure your offsets - should be done in 10 minutes. If you want to spend some extra minutes you can feel free to experiment with influence of less or more weight, but first of all i just appreciate having rel...

Re: Missing temperature offset correction

I am happy for you that you don't have problems with the gantry sag. If it doesn't cause you too much problems I still would be interested in your offset measures. It would be interesting for me and the whole community having a comparison with somebody who gets reliable results and is able to do pro...

Re: Missing temperature offset correction

@ccclarke I agree with your description concerning aerospace grade tests. This has certainly nothing to do with the tests of Markus64, and nothing with the testing methods of Raise3D, too. I know how much a product meeting such test creterias would cost. BUT the test series of Markus64 is simple and...

Re: Print Plate deforms strongly

Maybe some users don't encounter our problems, but there are hard facts that cannot be glossed over: 1. the lag of the gantry is obvious: take a clean 8mm middle rod and put a 500g weight in the middle - you can see what happens without a magnifier 2. nozzle temperature offset - no possibility of pr...
