Re: Ramp to Print Surface in Raft Printing??

The bed shouldn't move along the z-axis until it's ready to go up a layer, or unless it's z-hopping. I can verify with my Pro2 Plus that Z-hop always returns the bed to the initial height after nozzle travel. (I've got a polycarbonate thread in this forum with pictures - which I need to update again...

Re: Supports

Not entirely true. I've got pictures in older threads here using PLA support on PLA models, and the support comes right off leaving a fairly nice face on the model. I'll give that it's not perfect as without supports, but it's pretty darn close! If you're looking for the thread / pictures, I have a ...

Re: Turn the Heat Bed Off or Lower the BED Temp

Agreed with the raft pulling away. PLA I don't have much of a problem with, but PolySupport requires a high temperature and it absolutely will warp up to the nozzles if it cools down too much. I had a 1cm warp this morning on a PolySupport raft (PC-Max piece on top). Time to increase the raft densit...

Re: Turn the Heat Bed Off or Lower the BED Temp

Manually, my prior comment still stands. Try tapping on the bed temperature readout circle on the touchscreen and see if it lets you raise or lower it. Keep in mind though that depending on what material you're using, the bed also keeps the chamber warm if the lid is on!

Re: Turn the Heat Bed Off

I don't think you can actually turn the heat bed off, but you absolutely can modify it. On the touch screen if you tap on the temperature circle, there should be an up and down arrow that pops up which allows you to set a new temperature from that point to the end of the print. You can modify it at ...

Re: Overhang print quality with supports

So there's a cardinal rule for printing plus a lot of trial and error. If the current print layer is <= 45 degrees of overhang (at least for PLA, ABS, PC and other commonly used materials), then you typically won't have any problems with material being printed and staying where it should be. If your...

Re: Support Offset

If we take the buildplate surface as a z height of 0, bottom layer refers to the support structure with the lowest z-value, and top refers to the highest z value. So as an example, if your object had support from the bed to say 2.00cm high, then the bottom refers to layer 0.00cm to bottom offset val...

Re: Ideamaker 0.6mm nozzle settings?

You may also need to increase your layer size a bit (from 0.2 to 0.25 or 0.3). If you don't get a quick enough answer on the forums, you can always give tech support a call. They have a bunch of numbers for all of the different nozzles.

Re: Strange surface finish on PLA print

Judging from both your threads having extrusion issues with multiple materials, I'd say this is deeper than a quick fix we might be able to provide. At this point I'd suggest calling Raise3D technical support. You can direct the technician to these forum posts over the phone as well. They will likel...

Re: Polycarbonate stringing and poor surface finish

That's a good question! The template itself won't, but I'm wondering if you'd be able to download it, and copy the values your printer can make use of in a new template. @Vicky@Raise3D needs to weigh in on this!

Re: Calibration PRO 2

I might be able to weigh in here. I've had my Pro2+ for coming up on 3/4 of a year, and the bed itself is not out of level on an X-Y plane. It does however shift ever so slightly along the Z- height, as the mechanism for that is a screw which slots between an optical beam to determine where to stop ...

Re: Raise3D Red Premium PLA strings like spider webs

Truthfully, I've been getting those ever since Ideamaker was updated to 3.3.0 along with my Pro2 firmware, but that only happens on Z-hop enabled prints I do. What's happening there is there's just a bit of gravity extruded amount of plastic while the printer is not actively extruding, and travellin...

Have you tried my settings template? Also +1 on PolyMaker's PC-Max material. Never really had problems with it once I figured out how to print with polycarbonate in general!

Keep in mind this is on 3.1 settings when I made this profile, and not 3.3.0. Third last post contains my print settings as a downloadable template. You can disable the polysupport second nozzle if you wish.

Re: Printing directly on the bed without a RAFT?

I haven't modified the federate from the default profile. I'm using the included BuildTak surface, but I've found wiping it down with warm water (and then a dry microfiber cloth after while giving it a little bit of scrubbing force on the drying part) seems to fix any adhering issues.

Re: Printing directly on the bed without a RAFT?

If you're printing PLA without the raft, the standard PLA default profile works great. But, I've changed my bed height relative to the nozzle so that when you measure with the 0.2mm metal piece, it requires a little bit of persuading to fit between the nozzle and print bed. So the separation distanc...
