Printing with a 1mm nozzle

Recently watched this video where the author tries to speed up printing on the n2+ using a larger nozzle (1mm) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Hwc-wbihUs&t=326s According to the author this mostly fails due to the slicing in ideaMaker not being able to make the correct adjustments for printing ...

Re: ideaMaker Duplicate

But ideally if you are printing in a filament that needs cooling, you want your fan ducts to pass over it while it is printing new stuff. You want them to pass over the parts that are cooling or the parts currently being printed? Since the fans are usually mounted to the print head then if you are ...

Re: N1 w Dual Extruders and PLA

Re: BuildTak FlexPlate

Wow $140???

If you need a flexible base just get the BTSN2 Build Plate, put the Buildtak on it and then use silicone pads on the corners instead of the magnetic base.

Re: maintain temperatures after stopping a print

So the silicone pads are just on the corners of the glass? Yes, 4 aproximately 1.5 inch squares of 0.5mm thick https://www.amazon.com/400mm-205mm-Silicone-Thermal-Heatsink/dp/B007PPEW52 Placed in the 4 corners.

Re: Convince me to spend the $$

I'll keep investigating, but trying to decide if it's worth it to buy 1 machine for ~$3000 vs 4 more smaller units. (there are times 4 more would be handy) If more printers with the smaller volume would make you more productive that makes more sense.. I don't think any FFF printer is going to deliv...

Re: Convince me to spend the $$

First of all just saying Makerbot is not very informative if you want us to make comparisons. Cupcake, Replicator 1,2, 5th Gen? Heh.. I have a Makerbot Replicator 2x and a Raise3d N2+... and yes besides the gigantic build volume the N2+ has a nice interface, it's easier to swap filaments, there are...

Re: ideamaker crashing GPU

If your PSU isn't providing enough power to the GPU, it will crash and try to recover. Sure.. I assumed you would have a properly rated PSU to begin with but you didn't give any specs. Ideamaker is using the GPU to render the 3d objects on the computer. it doesn't have to be a big resource hog to b...

Re: ideamaker crashing GPU

I kinda doubt the PSU had much to do with it crashing but having multiple GPU intensive applications open at the same time may have. Usually when I have had GPU crashes it is either because the GPU is overheating or because the GPU is running out of memory or both. I don't think Ideamaker is going t...

Re: Filament monitor

And I'm in the opposite camp. An out of filament sensor would certainly be better than nothing but at least the filament is predictable. If I'm not sure if I have enough left on a spool I just weigh the spool. The vast majority of my issues are due to my ongoing battle with clogging. Since it's unp...

That's why the gcode includes what they call a "ping" which is a timed pause during the purge tower. That ensure the encoder reads that pause and the Palette and gcode are in sync. Ahh.. their website mentioned some sort of "feedback" but I couldn't find a description of what th...

Re: Filament monitor

I have ruined far more prints due to filament running out than clogs and considering the ability to print objects large enought o need more than one spool it seems like an obvious omission to the system.

I don't know who convinced you that there is no problems of stepper motors in an enclosed heated chamber with no heat sink or cooling system attached is fine.
