Re: N2 Single Extruder 2016 - Part Cooling

Oh, the cooling fan worked, but it hung about 1/8th of a mm lower than the nozzle, and on a print that curled got ripped off the hotend. I need to reprint it - or just accept it is what it is and im never going to have perfect prints

Re: N2 Single Extruder 2016 - Part Cooling

While you can change the cooler, let's not kid ourselves on this specific print. What you are fighting is going to be near impossible for a fan cooler to fix. ... What you need to do is identify these types of critical prints, place either more objects or sacrificial objects in the slicing path. Th...

Re: N2 Single Extruder 2016 - Part Cooling

I could say yes or no to that question, it's still a broken concept. Slowdown as a function in actual 3D printing at the nozzle actually printing plastic does more harm than good. If you slow down, then the nozzle is not only radiating heat, but also conducting heat through the liquid plastic to th...

Re: N2 Single Extruder 2016 - Part Cooling

FWIW, the cooler you linked I believe is also a good candidate. Blowers generate more static pressure airflow and thus flow higher rates through the constrictive printed ductwork. A such, this kind of does what the Berd cooler does, provide a ring of airflow around the nozzle. Again thank you (i di...

Re: N2 Single Extruder 2016 - Part Cooling

And, based on this, you might need to keep some form of stock fan + the Berd cooler https://forum.raise3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=13036&p=40642&hilit=berd#p40598 I found my post and pictures on my install https://forum.raise3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=9729&p=33460&hilit=berd...

Re: Simplify3D Offsets - Preview vs Actual Print doesnt align

I noticed the setup in S3D I got had x=305, y=280 and an x origin offset of -25 (in G-code). This doesn't match the printer, I don't know why the -25 but I suspect it has to do with the dual extruder. Anyway I made a box outline 304x304mm and when I printed it it clipped the left side. I changed th...

N2 Single Extruder 2016 - Part Cooling

So, I have never changed the stick part cooling fan on my N2. Unfortunately im seeing really bad results with thin/small items like this "rod" that prints with other items at the bottom but alone towards the top. I want to get a better part cooling fan. Is this thingiverse cooling part fro...

Re: N2 Bed Leveling Document

Is it possible to replace the entire bed? I've got it where it's printing on about 80% of the bed, but my N2 is basically an N1 right now.

Re: Threaded rod screws very loose

They are supposed to be loose to prevent Z axis artifacts from the ballscrews. Per the wiki/FAQ http://www.raise3d.com/pages/faq#faq12 For N1, all nuts and screws should be tight, except 2 screws for Z axis. For N2 and N2+, only the 8 screws for Z axis (4 on each side) should be loose. So after 3+ ...

Simplify3D Offsets - Preview vs Actual Print doesnt align

Im having problems utilizing the entire bed on my N2 when using S3D. I searched the forums and found 2017-18 posts about dual extrusion, but never my issue, single extrusion. Specifically, What's happening is i fill the bed fairly well, expecting the print to start around 12mm in from the left edge ...

Re: N2 Bed Leveling Document

Thanks again! So, I've painfully leveled the bed twice using the dial indicator method. There was always one area that i couldnt get, typically the back right side. I'm fairly sure my bed is warped beyond hope. It's been 3 years and likely out of alignment on this side for 3 years. IMG9723.jpeg IMG9...

Re: N2 Bed Leveling Document

I noticed you were using clips in that video. It's several years old, so perhaps it was before you went to thermal pads with no clips. Or, am I mistaken and do you still clip the glass to the bed? Suggest you use a cheap dial indicator from harbor freight. You can level a bed in minutes using the di...

Re: N2 Bed Leveling Document

I remember basically heating the bed to 80- Yes, this is a good starting temp, be sure to wait a few minutes for the bed to reach and stabilize at this temp starting in the middle, No, this is not the best starting point, start in the 4 corners. This is because the center by design, will ALWAYS be ...

It's been a long time since I've posted here ... So My N2 bed has NEVER been level. I always just used the 12x12 bed to print smaller items so it wasnt terrible. However, I finally need the whole 12x12 and i need to level it. Ive actually attempted it in the past, i had a 1+ hour call with Tech supp...

Re: N-Series Hot End Silicon Socks

Would it fit a nozzle for the N2 Dual? Are they just a shipping implement? I cannot speak for the second question- that's all them on how they sell or bundle them, but the first one, the picture and the entire topic is, this is a brand new V2 N2 hotend (dual or single) so yes, it fits your N2 dual....

Re: Cannot get a good print

How was the result with 60C bed temperature? If you machine is a dual-extruder one, you cannot turn the cooling fans off. Both fans are constant-on for providing proper cooling for heat sink of both nozzles. On the downward fan on single-extruder machine can be controlled by code. Would more recomm...

I'm still using that profile with my N1 to this day. Ignore the whole V1 v 2 thing. All that I have ever seen change is extrusion temp. Mine has V2 hotend (currently configured as a single extruder) and in that mode, if you add a 50mm fan and this duct to the right side, it matches the single extru...
