Raise3D E2 - Discussion!

So the E2 was released a while back, and the information that I have found can be found on retailers and blogs. But! From the information that is out, I thought we could have a discussion! Positives for me are the "independent" extruders, which can speed up the printing on identical prints...

Print Profiles Anywhere - Ideamaker

Sometimes I have to send gcode from out of office so that my coworkers can operate the machine. I roughly remember my settings and can slice from home and send them the gcode. The obvious improvement I am suggesting is to have an account linked to ideamaker so that I have access to my print profiles...

Re: TPU Suggestions

I have used PrimaSelect Flex and used basically the same template as the PolyFlex. I just changed the temperature of the nozzle and the build plate to match the filament!

Re: Nozzle clogging with PVA

You use 250 deg C on the PVA? That sounds extremely HOT. I use Inland (cheap) PVA and print at 195 deg C. If I get a clog, it's frequently because the PVA is sitting idle for a long time, and either the bit in the nozzle carbonizes or the bit in the throat hardens from the heat. Check your temp on ...

Re: Cool down inactive extruder

I think you might need to update your printer and ideamaker. Nowadays I only need to heat up the inactive extruder if the printer needs to switch nozzle at the start. If you have restarted the printer it needs to do one switch to know which head is down. After that it knows and it wont preheat the o...

Re: PVA Issues

Hi, Thanks for your replies. Have you really gotten PVA to work with PLA? I am in San Diego, so pretty low humidity. I put moisture absorbing packs in the case under the spools, and they did not change color, so I think humidity was not an issue. I also run a dehumidifier in the room. The PVA just ...

Re: Plate holes not bonded to surfaces

Cool, then I know what you want to do. What I mean is when you check the "show retraction" you can see crosses where the printer will retract. As you can se there are no retractions around the hole that you are having problem with. Therefore the retraction settings are not helping you arou...

Re: Plate holes not bonded to surfaces

No problem, I don't know which brand of filament you are using, is it PLA? I'd experiment with the temperature settings for that. I am wondering about the amount of shells you are using, why are you using so many? There might be some issues with the solid fill outline shells? You have a lot of diffe...

Re: Plate holes not bonded to surfaces

I looked up your settings and I believe it is your coasting settings that does this. Check out my image below, the one on the left is where I have decreased the coasting. You are using 1.3mm coasting and I changed it to 0.1mm. I guess you are battling some retraction and therefore you have increased...

Re: Clicking during loading

A long shot maybe, but are you cutting off the filament before loading it with a knife or a wire cutter? Sometimes if you use a wire cutter it can expand the filament in one direction which could make the filament to broad to fit further down. When it clicks, is it continually and the filament keeps...

Try to tweak the temperature settings and go for something smaller to try it out.

Re: Clicking during loading

You could also check to see that the gear is properly aligned. Mine was a bit loose and had moved a bit which caused the filament to get stuck.

Re: Ideamaker questions

To give each printer a fair shake I am loading my models into the default slicer, In Cura I can select which extruder it prints supports from and I can tell it to only use the expensive PVA for the interface layer, before I found this selling I was going through 7 to 10 rolls of PVA a month, I don’...

Re: Lowering Print Platform during Filament Reload

I would assume this is an issue that occurs when you have only printed a few layers? Otherwise i don't see why you would want to lower the build platform? You could also just clean the nozzle before restarting the print can you not?

To be fair, what you are asking is a probably a long and outdrawn answer and therefore no one has responded to you.
