Generate Support issue in IM

Hi Vicky, just came across another small issue in 3.5.0.3565 beta, which has probably been there for ever... When you add manual supports to a model and you have the 'Generate Support' box set to 'None' on the Support tab in Advanced Settings (so all the options for Supports, including Left or Right...

Dual skirt bug in IM Ver 3.5.0.3565 Beta

Hi Vicky, Just noticed a small bug in 3.5.0.3565 beta... I had turned on the 'Add Brim on Internal Regions' option in a template and printed an item with it - this worked well and is a useful feature. Then I sliced the next model using the same template. I didn't need a brim for this model, so I sel...

Re: IdeaMaker support for 3DConnexion SpaceNavigator for Notebooks.

Hi Vicky

This is really good news. I have a different version of 3DConnexion mouse called a SpaceExplorer, so if you would like another beta tester I use Win 10.

Re: IdeaMaker support for 3DConnexion SpaceNavigator for Notebooks.

Me too wally. 3.4.2 has many great features, but I was disappointed that support for 3DConnexion wasn't included.

Re: Poll - Do you use Ethernet, Wifi or Flash Drive to transfer your files to your Raise3D printer?

I use Wi-Fi on my N1, have done for the last 2+ years. It just works. File transfer of say 6mb takes a few seconds

Re: Need a strong material to make a Buckle Snap

I use PETG for this type of application. It is easy to print and combines good strength with some flexibility

Re: ideaMaker 3.4.1 Release Notes

Also it seems I cannot go through a slice one layer at a time since there are no arrows at the end of the sliders Actually, there are arrows to the right of the numeric boxes. Also, if you put your mouse over the sliders and use your scroll wheel you can move through the print 3 steps or layers at ...

Re: Working with Raisecloud

With just one printer I find that 90% of RaiseCloud is unnecessary. I use IM to slice and upload the gcode, then I just monitor the printing using the camera feature in RaiseCloud, via the app on my iPad / iPhone

Re: App currently not working?

I'm using the app on my iPad and iPhone. They are both working fine at the moment. I have my iPad showing the camera continuously through RaiseCloud, to keep an eye on printing. I can see nozzle and bed temps etc on this screen, but it would be nice to also see the time remaining and % complete on t...

Re: How to resume failed air print at last printed layer

You can't 'resume the print' because the printer was unaware that anything had gone wrong at that point. So it's going to have to be a manual restart. Of course, any kind of restart is goint to give you a new model effectively. But, if the nozzle is at exactly the right Z height, the new model will ...

Powder 'film' left on glass bed after printing

After printing, I am left with a very fine dust 'film' on the glass around the item I just printed. It wipes off reasonably easily with kithchen paper, but it does limit the bed adhesion I get when Sequential Printing a number of parts. Does anybody know what this dust film is and how I can minimise...

Re: Weird support behaviour with ideaMaker 3.4.0 Beta

Thanks Vicky, that seems to fix the problem. Rotating the part before creating the supports gives nice straight support lines. Ideally IM would popup a warning message to the user, if the model is rotated after supports have been added.

Re: Weird support behaviour with ideaMaker 3.4.0 Beta

No problem Vicky, files attached I added a brim for my second print, which printed fine at Z = 0 degrees. However, when I rotated the model 45 degrees Z to slice and send you the files, I noticed it now makes a wavy brim! I checked this effect on two older models, using different filament templates ...

Weird support behaviour with ideaMaker 3.4.0 Beta

Hi Vicky, Just started to print a model with supports, which I very rarely have to do. Depending on the direction I lay the model on the bed, the support structure changes orientation. At 0 or 90 degrees Z rotation all the support gets laid down as continuous lines, this is good. But if I slice it a...

Re: fan cool N2 dual

Thanks Jetguy

Because of the limited space in the N1, the Berd cooler approach may be the only option. It would need to be a very quiet pump though!

Re: fan cool N2 dual

That's okay, just wondered if you had tried it. In your experience does an additional layer blower give any, some or a lot of improvement over the stock combo hot end airflow diverters? You are right about the reduced space in the N1 and I'm just trying to gauge whether it's worth the effort to try ...
