Re: Printing RH only with Pro2

Okay.

I have to wonder why the change?

Printing RH only with Pro2

I seem to remember, when my LH Extruder was out of action, being able to print with my Pro2 using the RH Extruder only. Maybe it's just old age but I can't find the appropriate settings with ideaMaker 4.2.3.5689. Has ideaMaker been 'improved' in the last upgrade, or am I just missing something?

Re: Why Shroud on Hotend?

Let us think out loud.
What if Raise3D supplied the Hotend Blocks already coated? (That is, of course, without raising the exorbitant price they charge for them now! :roll: :lol: )

Re: Why Shroud on Hotend?

1. That's not recommended in any manual I have found. 2. You can do better than that. Make it with ties across each end at the top. You would have to stretch it onto the block before inserting the heater element and the thermocouple - no problem. Then it would stay in place. ;) Find some material th...

Re: Load/Unload Minimum Temperature

When you say 'Load/Unload' are you including 'Print' ? If so, would it not be more clear if you called in 'Minimum Extrusion Temperature' ? That is, of course, if that is what you mean?

Re: Why Shroud on Hotend?

That's all very well. You forgot to add that they never fit securely; they flop all over the place eventually getting caught up between the nozzle and the print plate; they deteriorate with time eventually tearing and hanging down in strips. All not very useful. Could you take some time to find a de...

Fine tuning finish

I just did a nozzle replacement on my Pro2 and it threw out the finish quality I had been pleased with. In the first place I now have a much greater 'Elephant Foot' effect (rim at the very bottom of the model). Then the finish at the top is coarse around the edges: 220502 Top.png The nozzle clearanc...

Load/Unload Minimum Temperature

I have a Pro2. Using the Touchscreen I select Settings --> More Settings --> Hardware --> Temperature Limits There are two parameters there, Load/Unload Minimum Temperature and Load/Unload Default Temperature . What do these parameters do? What do they control? I can find no explanation in the Pro2 ...

Re: No extrusion when printing

Well, folks, you probably won't believe this but my Pro2 is merrily printing and has been through the night. "What was the solution?" you ask. It's a bit hard to explain how the solution came to light but it was just a matter of extruder temperature. I raised the print temperature of the e...

Re: No extrusion when printing

Two further lines of investigation. I decided to get at lease some work done by using only the RH Extruder - the one which has continued to work. I created the attached template to achieve that end. (I use 0.8 mm nozzles.) To my surprise NEITHER of the extruders works. Hmm! :( That wasn't much use. ...

Re: No extrusion when printing

Firmware loaded okay - it's the other file that does nothing.
Here are three JPEGs of the extruder change assembly. This one was just in case there was some disbelief that the extruders work okay when Load ing.

Re: No extrusion when printing

Figuring that if the extruders worked okay when loading then there is nothing mechanical stopping printing I came to the conclusion that the problem must be in the software (actually firmware). I downloaded and installed Pro2-Dual-0-0-66.firm but it made no difference. I notice that this software is...

Re: No extrusion when printing

One other thing: when the extruders are heated above the set minimum temperature I cannot make them go up and down using the Touchscreen. They work just fine from the gCode but not from the Touchscreen.

Re: No extrusion when printing

Sorry about being so long getting back to you. Came down with some bug or other - not Covid, just some bug. Both extruders 'Load' perfectly normally and in both cases the blue light at the back comes up. The extruders lower at the appropriate times. I ran one of my setup test pieces which requires b...

Activating extruders for maintenance

I can't get my extruders to raise and lower so that I can check clearances. I can tap the icons to my heart's content but nothing happens. What do I have to do?

I really need some help here - my machine has work to do :x

FTR: there is no problem with the extruder - it loads very nicely and extrudes a string of filament.

No extrusion when printing

Yesterday I had my Rasie3D Pro2 working with 0.4mm nozzles for a special job. This morning I reset it with 0.8mm nozzles. When I try to print something two strange things happen: 1. The active nozzle is about 2.5mm above the print bed instead of the 0.2mm to which it is set; 2. No filament is extrud...
