Re: New Mosaic Palette+ and upgrade for existing owners

Great, can't wait to see the results, if you'll be able to post them!

This could be moved to a new thread if it is too off topic, but have you by any chance tried the Scaffold filament yourself yet? Is it easier to print with and more stable than other PVA filaments?

Re: New Mosaic Palette+ and upgrade for existing owners

If this works with PLA and water-soluble material, then this is in my opinion by far the best upgrade made since desktop 3D printers became avaliable. Do you have any results for this combination in pictures?

Re: Tech support unable to advise, printing ceases after 30-40 mins

I'm not sure if I'll be of any use here, but I would like to point out that usually people do not use the IR thermometer correctly. What reading do you get when you load the filament, before extruder starts clicking at all? If it’s around 130°C, then your temperature readings are incorrect, as the f...

Re: Anyone tried polysmooth?

Oh, and the rabbit was in Polysher for about 25 minutes. Here's another photo I couldn't upload with the first post (probably size limit).

Re: Anyone tried polysmooth?

Hi, We have a Polysher machine and one white spool of Polysmooth in our office. We did two prints so far (one 7 cm rabbit and five 3 cm owls), so what I’m about to say can only count as limited experience :) Also know that our firm sells Raise3D printers and Polyshers, so you can take this review as...

Re: PolyFlex & Nylon

Hey, I can tell you the setup we use in our office that works perfectly for PolyFlex. We make 20h+ successful prints constantly and there were no issues so far, the printed stuff actually looks amazing and has no defects. We struggled in the beginning though, as does everyone I suppose. Here’s what ...

Re: printarea in Ideamaker prints outside printbed on tight fits

Hi, Tl;dr: Check your X and Y End Stops. Long story: I’ve seen this before and the problem was not in the design or assembly of the printer, but a shifted Y End Stop. Basically, the micro switch was out of place by about 5 – 10 mm, so the printer stopped too late and the whole printer area was out o...

Re: STL Design Shared

Hi Vicky, thank for sharing, but the file contains 20 clamps, so it was a bit too much for us :)

We made a new STL model (it's a bit tight compared to the original) which I'm sharing in attachment.

Re: Project Bondtech Extruder

Hey everyone, sorry for jumping into a thread without reading the whole thing first, but I have a quick question: does the Bondtech extruder fit on the first Raise3D N2 printers that were sent as part of the Kickstarter campaign? I’m talking about the single extruder version and the first versions o...

Re: Clicking sound on Z axis

Before you start taking everything apart - we had the same issue, but when inspecting the bed movement, we discovered that the clicking sound came from the cable chain making a sound on one specific point, as it is flexing while the bed is moving. Check if the sound is coming from there (you can eve...

Re: STL Design Shared

Hi, does anyone by chance have an STL file of the Z-clamps that hold the Z axis in place for transportation? I would need to print one pair, as we threw away ours after unpacking the N2 printer. If someone still has them, it would even be great to get just the measurments and I can create the 3D mod...

Re: X/Y axis shifting

Yes, I’m primarily using Simplify3D, because I’m often preparing g-code for multiple printers at the same time. I got the template somewhere on this forum awhile back and tweaked the parameters a bit to fit my materials and printer, but I never changed the X/Y speed, which was set to 9000 mm/min (= ...

Re: X/Y axis shifting

Thank you for all your answers, I currently have a lot of urgent things to print, so I divided prints into smaller batches (max. 12 hour prints) and slowed down the movement speed from 9000 mm/min to 4500 mm/min. Everything is working great so far, the reduction of movement speed slowed my print tim...

X/Y axis shifting

Hi everyone, I would like to start by complimenting the Raise3D N2 printer – we are using it 24/7 since we got it a few months ago and it’s a real workhorse, precision and reliability seem to be unparalleled to other 3D printers in this price range. We have, however, come across an issue with our X-...
