Re: Resumed paused print after loading a new roll - resulted in air print - Ideas?

After you put the new filament in, did you wait and see the new filament being extruded from nozzle before continue the print? I did. However now that I think about it, it may be that what I was seeing being pushed out was remnants from the last roll, and perhaps the new filament hadn't quite taken...

Resumed paused print after loading a new roll - resulted in air print - Ideas?

Hey all - I ran out of filament last night during a print. Fortunately it was a test print using a newly installed 1mm nozzle, so no huge deal. However, I came in this morning, loaded a new roll and hit "resume print". Came back 5 or so minutes later to find it was air printing with no fil...

That is correct. I am hoping to use the 1.0mm nozzle for fast rough prints.

Re: Preparing to swap nozzle - Any last minute advice?

Success! (so far). I now want to do the Nozzle Offset Calibration as outlined below: https://support.raise3d.com/Pro2-Series/nozzle-offset-calibration-4-69.html My issue now is that I have a 1mm nozzle in the left extruder and a 0.4 in the right.

Re: Preparing to swap nozzle - Any last minute advice?

Attached all the instructions may can help you for your nozzle swap. Do make sure you have left an gap between nozzle and heating block then tighten the throat tube to confirm the throat tube seals well with the nozzle. Do not apply any extra force onto the throat tube when removing the old nozzle ...

Hey folks - I just finished painting this piece. It is mainly a testbed for the 10" (6.5 day print) version I am working on now. Modeled in Oculus Medium (VR), detailed a bit and prepped in Zbrush and printed on a Pro2 in PLA. Painted in airbrush acrylic, bronze paint, and an oil wash. It's abo...

Re: Preparing to swap nozzle - Any last minute advice?

I highly advise torquing the nozzles over the highest temp you ever plan on printing. If you torque them at room temp - even really tight they can come loose - has happened to me. here's what I do: remove hot ends from carriage use Raise instructions for gapping new nozzle but gap to 0.25 - tighten...

Re: Preparing to swap nozzle - Any last minute advice?

Have you attempted the procedure yet? Btw, were you replacing both nozzles or just one? I’m in the same boat: got a new one 0.8mm, and thinking about replacing my right nozzle with this larger one. Also terrified to mess something up. Hey - I have not yet. i will likely swap both, as I prematurely ...

Hey Dex - Do you mean 10-15% infill ratio? And by 30% do you mean Dense Support Infill Ratio?

Re: My Pro2 shipped with two different nozzle sizes??

Just curious how much glow filament you put through that nozzle - it's pretty trashed. You should get one of the 3dSolex ruby nozzles for that stuff. Very little, which is why I'm surprised to realize it is from wear. I have probably run 300 grams of glow through it. The rest has been a hodgepodge ...

Ah! Ok, thank you very much. I appreciate it. Yeah, I think this is a pretty cut and dry case of operator error.

Re: My Pro2 shipped with two different nozzle sizes??

Why don't you check the stamps on the nozzles - be weird if the Right nozzle was worn out unless you're using that one exclusively. I'll search out the stamps. Thanks. Edit - I think I will have to disassemble to get access to those stamps. I wonder if it's from printing with glow-in-the-dark filam...

Re: My Pro2 shipped with two different nozzle sizes??

It's a very new printer (January of this year) and I haven't printed much, or at least not enough to wear down the nozzle.
