New stepper motor for extruder

I am 90% sure I need a new stepper motor for the extruder of my Pro. When loading filament I have to give the filament a little push to get the motor to work. It runs for 2 seconds then stops. I know it is not binding. Where can I purchase one of these motors that match up with what is currently in ...

Is there a way to patch a print that ran out of filament

So I had a 3 day print and 2 days in I forgot to switch out the filament spool. I was left with 2/3rds of a really good print. So I tried with Simplify 3d to make a profile of the print that started where the filament ran out. When I pressed print the bed started to move up and up and I had to shut ...

Wavier flat surfaces as print gets taller

This print is 23.5" tall. The first half the flat surfaces are fairly smooth but the last half get more and more lines. Anyway to get rid of them?

Re: Gantry not smooth in area

Thank you for the reply. Interesting diagnosis. What do those 2 couplers do? How certain are you that the 2 couplers are the cause of the binding? Also, where can I get a set as they are not on the Raise web site.

Re: Gantry not smooth in area

Do you mean the 2 couplers for the Z axis? Are they in the bottom of the machine below a metal plate?

Gantry not smooth in area

I have a Pro that is 8 months old. Recently it makes a loud binding sound when the print head is over a corner of the print bed (about 1/4 of the print bed). I greased up the rails with PTFE grease twice and this did not help. I can move the print head around by hand and I can tell it is more diffic...

Need a strong material to make a Buckle Snap

Just wondering if anyone has printed those snap buckles that are on backpacks? Did you go with nylon? It needs to be stiff yet has to bend a little to work so not sure what material is best. Thanks. :)

Better placement of the filament sensor

I have had my Pro2 since December and nearly every time I change the filament I have to take off the filament sensor. This is because as I remove the filament a blob is created at the end. Off goes the sensor so I can snip off the end. Nearly every time!!! If the sensor was on the frame of the print...

First dual color print question

I am doing a dual color print and it looks fairly good. It would be better if I could get the right nozzle to stop oozing so much when it is not printing. The left nozzle doesn't ooze very much. I have an ooze shield around the entire print but some of the ooze gets onto the main print. Both nozzles...

Other .2 nozzles that will work

I use a .2mm nozzle a lot. The one I received from Raise lasted about 30 prints and now it seems to be shot. I cleaned it thoroughly and still not working correctly. Does anyone know if N2 nozzles or any other brand nozzles work on the PROs? :P

Does the Pro have a teflon tube before hot end

Wondering if the Pro is an all metal hotend or does it have a teflon tube? I know my N2 plus has a teflon tube. When I am loading the filament it seems to hit something near the hot end. thanks. :geek:

Nozzle Tracker

It would be cool if I could input when I changed a nozzle and be able to see that date on the home screen. I currently use a sticker on the machine and hand write it down. It would need to be on the home screen so you don't have to flip around to find it. :ugeek:

Removing the HEPA filter

Hey is there a trick to getting the HEPA filter out? Just doesn't want to get out by pulling the tab. I want to save it for ABS printing. :)

Fan shroud

Was wondering if Raise could send some info on the Fan shroud and fan used for the N2 single. The larger shroud on the right side of the hotend. I am considering putting one onto the Pro2 on the right side. Thanks! :?

Re: Beneath Supports is rougher than N1

I updated the 2 firmwares before printing anything. I only use Simplify3d for slicing so I could send those profiles if you can use those. Have your tests shown any difference between the N2 and Pro2 as far as how undersides of supports look? Again I have a single nozzle N2.

Beneath Supports is rougher than N1

I have a N1 plus single nozzle and the it prints parts with supports very well. The supports come off easily and the underside is fairly smooth as can be seen in the right image. The Pro2 does not do as well. The first layer atop the supports will have gaps in it and the supports are more difficult ...

Is there a way to turn off the HEPA filter on the Pro2? I have the top lid open when I print PLA so the filter is not really helping clean the air. thanks. :P

Turning Right nozzle OFF at startup

Just got a Raise Pro2 and just got the first print running. It is working well on the left nozzle but I had to manually turn off the Right nozzle. I use Simplify3d and I used the preset profile and turned everything to zero for the right nozzle. When the machine starts up "both" nozzles an...
