Not so unlucky, you just have to plug it in while the rest of use early-birds have to wire it ourselves.

Re: PETG being extruded during warm up

I guess you could make some Start Gcode to try and purge a little plastic on to the build plate and get the little tail to stick at that spot. Or use a skirt and have it farther from the part to get it to fall off away from the part. Any idea how I would do that? Add: G1 E20 F140 To the GCode/scrip...

Re: Note to users of the original fan ducts.

Ive printed them in PLA and they warped a little, nothing that was any issue though.. Just looked like the screw holding it on squished it a bit. My new ones are PETG and ive never had any problems with them even up to 260 degree hot end and 80 bed for several hours. PETG is fine and PLA will work ...

Silicone pads versus feet?

I am planning to remove the binder clips that hold down the glass bed (in case it is being warped by a less-than-flat heat bed underneath) and going with a silicone pad instead. The pad will allow heat transfer but prevent the glass slipping while letting the glass sit very flat. My question is woul...

Re: My 1st Benchy - feedback Please

I'd greatly appreciate feedback as this is still new to me. Thanks! I'm no expert and I am just in the process of dialling in Spool3D PETG, but a few thoughts: 100*C seems hot for the bed, 80*C might be better I am using 242*C so I think that is reasonable print slow - 40 - 60 mm/s print inside-out...

Re: Instruction to swap in V2 hot end (With modified firmware)

Oh, and when I went to swap in the new nylon-tipped bed screws, about 1/2 of the original screws did not have threadlocker (thread glue) on them so had backed out from vibrations. If people aren't swapping to the new nylon tipped ones (and don't have the newest N2 that does not need them), they shou...

Re: Instruction to swap in V2 hot end (With modified firmware)

I bought some V2 thermocouples in case I broke one swapping to a V2 hotend (but didn't) and kept the V1 thermocouples. If I see temp fluctuations, can I install this: http://www.raise3d.com/collections/accessories/products/n-series-spare-parts-z-stepper-driver or should I ask for an extra capacity (...

Re: Note to users of the original fan ducts.

Please use high temperature filament to print fan duct, such as PC, ABS. It is very close to nozzle. PLA will deform with the high temperature. Please lay it down to print it. It needs no support in such direction. One of my original ducts just broke and looks suspiciously like PLA from the factory...

Re: Is the Raise3D N2+ a good printer? (need advice asap)

This only applies if you're using N2/N2+ Dual extruder setup. Within S3D, the current profile has defined build plate dimension limit of 305mm x 305mm x 305mm, which on the surface seems correct....<snip> Thank you for the detailed reply. I am using an N2 Dual in S3D. So, if T0 (left) goes from 0 t...

Re: Instruction to swap in V2 hot end (With modified firmware)

These instructions say nothing about changing to the new V2 thermocouples but you sell them in the store.

Are the V2 thermocouples needed or can we reuse the V1 thermocouples?

Re: As a Simplify3D user I have to admit...

The single biggest reason I use S3D is the Global G-Code Offset - tuning a bed height to within 0.0x mm should not have to be done with a mechanical screw if there is the option to do it in software.

Power consumption?

Roughly how much power does an N2 consume while printing? I realize it depends on number of extruders used and their temperatures as well as the bed temperature but I'm looking for a rough estimate so I can add that into cost of things I print for people.

Thanks

Re: BuildTak - best adhesive known to man.

This was one of the main reason I dialed in S3D - global z offset which allows minute z height adjustments via software.
