Re: Clicking coupled with underextrusion

I don't believe it is an issue with the hotend. I have filament coming out the majority of the time just fine. All three fans work as well. The right gear seems aligned with the filament. The left gear seems to be slightly off; it is clearly visible when compared to the right extruder gear. I am won...

Re: Clicking coupled with underextrusion

I cleared my cache and was able to access the manuals on the website. Thanks As far as the printing goes, I continued with a re-tightened extruder screw and after printing for a day, the issue has started up again. I compared the left extruder gears to the right ones (which I have not used much to t...

Re: First layer setting clarification

So my understanding from what you are saying is that FLH is a variable used to set, along with the other variables you mentioned, the flowrate of the first layer of the print. I guess my next 2 questions are: 1) If FLH affects the flowrate and has no influence on the physical height of the nozzle, w...

Re: Clicking coupled with underextrusion

1) I tightened the extruder screw with the spring on it a bit, and so far it has stopped. 3) When I click on the link you provided, I get sent to a page that says only: "{{search.search_placeholder'|translate}}", with a picture of 3d printed gears in the background. I get this same page wh...

Clicking coupled with underextrusion

1) On my last print, I noticed a clicking sound that started, and a seemingly inconsistent extrusion that seemed to go hand in hand with it. I was wondering if this might be a jam? Or possibly just a extrusion motor/gear issue? I am able to unload the filament. When I attempt to load it again, filam...

Re: Inquiry on Z Rod that contains the ball bearings

Thanks for the quick response Jetguy. I was wondering if you could manually turn one and have them slightly slant the plate, but it doesn't seem like this is possible if they are mechanically coupled.

Inquiry on Z Rod that contains the ball bearings

I was wondering if each of the two rods that actually drive the bedplate vertically, the ones that have the balls, are driven by two motors (motors driving each rod individually) or have a belt connecting the two with a single motor controlling the turning of both?

Re: First layer setting clarification

1) So it sounds like 'Extruded Length' is not a variable that the user can control through ideaMaker then, is this correct? 2) Also, it seems like you could get the exact same 'total extruded amount' by using different combinations between 'Layer Height, Extruder Width, D, and Flowrate[%]. Can you c...

Re: First layer setting clarification

Vicky, Which ideaMaker Variable controls the 'Extruded Length'? And, I know 'First layer flowrate' on ideaMaker is a '%', but I was wondering what the actual units were that the percentage is representing? For example, 0[%] corresponds to 0 [?] and 100[%] corresponds to 25[?]? I am asking because I ...

Re: First layer setting clarification

Thanks for the response Vicky, that's exactly the information I was trying to get answered, because my own experiences changing the first layer height was changing the mass flow rate of the filament, so I knew I had a misunderstanding of what it represented. With this information I had a different s...

Re: First layer setting clarification

Vicky, thanks for the reply. So, to make sure I understand this correctly, a) First layer height DOES NOT affect the amount of material extruded, all else being equal? So if I put 0.25mm first layer height for a print, and then print it using a 0.15mm first layer height, the mass flow rate of the fi...

Re: First layer setting clarification

Forgot another question: 4) based on question 3, what would happen if you set the z-offset to be 0.1mm and you selected a first layer thickness of 0.2mm?

Re: Printing with different size nozzles

Thank you Vicky, it turns out skirt/brim setting was set to Left extruder, so I am assuming that if I had allowed the print to continue, it would have switched to the right extruder after the skirt was printed. I changed it to be taken care of by the right extruder and now the component is printing ...

First layer setting clarification

I was wondering if someone might clarify the differences between some of the ideamaker settings, as they relate to the first layer of a print? It is my understanding that z-offset is the physical clearance you set between the plate and the nozzle using a feeler gauge or a business card or whatever. ...

Printing with different size nozzles

I am trying to use my left extruder to print exclusively components with a 0.4mm nozzle, and my right extruder to print fine-detail components exclusively with a 0.2mm nozzle (I won't be trying to print components that require both nozzles), in order to avoid the cumbersome dismantling process requi...

I recently purchased the hardened nozzles from the Raise3d website. In case anyone is wondering, for future reference and so they don't have to dismantle their printers to find this information out: 7.97mm across flat, about 5.55mm length from the top of the flat to the top of the thread, 14mm overa...

Re: Dyze Tungsten Carbide Nozzle

Vicky, care to chime in? I have calipers and can take the extruder apart to find these dimensions out myself. All I am hoping for is to save myself the trouble of dismantling portions of the printer unnecessarily. The dyze website has a threaded section length of 7mm and an overall length of 12.5mm,...

Dyze Tungsten Carbide Nozzle

Does anyone know if the dyze tungsten carbide nozzles will work for the Pro2? I believe the thread is the same, but I was wondering if the lengths of the tip are the same as well, or if the z leveling would have to be adjusted for a longer nozzle?

Re: Bedplate Leveling

After purchasing a glass plate I have made some realizations: 1) Using a dial is less "jumpy" on the glass, to be expected. 2) tightening the nuts did not lower the glass as effectively as it had the original bed plate, in the areas directly surrounding the adjustment point. 3) In many ins...
