Re: Leaks after nozzle swaps

You have to torque with the block above the highest temp you are going to print with - otherwise everything comes loose and leaks. This is not clearly explained in the Raise instructions. The gap is to ensure that the nozzle is torqued against the heat break and not the block. I heat to 310 then tor...

The MaxFit MFSH-2000TSX-RS-R

Made this spool holder to fit those pesky 75mm spools into the Pro2 and still allow the doors to shut. Clips securely into place and is named in the spirit of Japanese motor sports.

Re: Extruder Jam and stuck fillament Pro2

Yes it's a common issue unless you address the inadequate cooling of the heat sinks. Just do a search for "jam" and you'll see. What filament are you printing? It's more of an issue with long PLA prints - you could switch to PETG or ABS and probably get by.

Here's a torture test I did using Raise PLA - I printed at 220 with the bed at 60 and the printer completely closed using the Raise standard template with a few small changes. Print took almost 12 hours and was uneventful other than a power outage during a thunderstorm that I was able to recover fro...

Re: Fan Upgrade

Nice - should do the trick - so you retapped the block to take the e3D heat break?

BTW the blower mode works pretty damn good:

Re: Left Extruder jams

The image of the filament looks like heat creep to me - you can see where the rollers squished the softened filament.

Re: Left Extruder jams

I don't think that's wear as the whole thing is made with SLS printing out of black nylon powder. Probably debris from filament that's worn off by passing though the extruder. Going to have to use the steel rod and find out where the obstruction is as per Raise instructions.

Re: Tray Size

Can you print the part in two or more pieces? You can bond the pieces together after - not sure what the part is for or if it will be under any stresses. You can print in ABS and solvent weld them with just acetone.

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: Dollop of rubbish at start of print

The reason I added that little rise to 5mm is that there is often a bit of ooze from the warm up - this sticks to the bed during the Z axis zero command and then the nozzle lifts up away from it... most of the time. You could just as well leave it out - you have to watch the whole process, think abo...

This is a good resource - I assume the Pro2 uses the same gcode interpretation as Marlin since the N series printers use Marlin - could be wrong but haven't noticed any differences yet: http://marlinfw.org/meta/gcode/ I keep text files of useful gcode scripts that I use for different printers - that...

Re: Fan Upgrade

Instead of using the Raise clamp why don't you eliminate it and just incorporate a 6mm ID x 4-5mm high tube with set screw into your design - that would make the whole thing shorter and give you even fewer places for things to get loose out of alignment etc. The Raise clamp thing has always baffled ...

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.

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.

Try the blower mod - works like it was meant to - even with tiny heat sinks and a servo in the way.
