Re: Heat all elements at the same time

And a another problem with Raise3D pushing out new firmware to our printers could be that one little bug can make all printers stop working. It's better to let someone else try out the latest firmware first if you can't afford downtime on the printer, and then upgrade at a later point ;)

Re: what happened to the the Official Raise3d Camera?

I got a wide angle lens for my Mobius Actioncam and I'm playing with that. It's very small and easily fits inside the printer. However, the instructions recommend keeping temperatures to 47ÂșC or below, so it's probably not a good choice for printing high-temp materials with the printer fully closed...

Re: Changing a Nozzle

That's how you do it. But remember to heat up the block first. Otherwise the threads/surface between nozzle and heat block might have siezed from some previous molten plastic being left. And be careful with the tourqe when tigthening up the new nozzle. The throath tube that the nozzle seals against ...

Re: Newbie question about motors

It's the stepper motors for the Z, X and Y axis (and probably the extruder motor as well) that you turn off with that button. When the printer is idle the motors consume current to be able to stand still and keep their position. (I think they automatically turn off after a while for saving current a...

Re: Cannot upgrade

I was able to install the new version of IdeaMaker, but had to uninstall the prevoius version... And all my custom print settings disappeared in that process :(

Re: Project Bondtech Extruder

I had to cut off those plastic tubes about 1 mm with a knife to be able to push down the extruder enough for the screw holes to line up.

I don't think that is a issue if you want to mount the original extruder back again.

Re: board error

You need to have both thermocouples connected for normal operation.
I tried to remove the unused one on my N1 single extruder printer, and got the same error message as you do.
So I re-attached the unused thermocouple and the printer started as it should again.

Re: New door handle

The door on my N1 is also quite a tight fit.
So I might also do some sanding to ease the opening of the door some day :)
