Sequential Printing - left extruder only?

Hi Vicky I'm trying to lay out some parts for sequential printing using the right extruder only, but IM3.4.0.2855 beta won't let me. It keeps changing the parts to the left extruder, without actually telling me that it has done so. I understand that I can't print dual extruder parts sequentially, be...

Re: Flexible PLA won't stick to Printing Platform

These are the steps I go through if I can't get the print to stick to the bed properly... 1 Clean the print bed properly - Not just a quick wipe over, I take the plate to the sink and use additive-free washing up liquid and hot water for a few seconds to get the surface really 'contaminant free'. 2 ...

Re: ideaMaker 3.4.0 Beta Release Notes

Another major upgrade in 6 months, congratulations to the Raise3D team. This doesn't put ideaMaker on the top of the slicer list, but it does keep it firmly in the running as one of the best slicers available.

Re: Shrinkage

There is no easy answer. As the thread you referenced explains, there are many factors affecting 3D print shrinkage. So printing a test piece, measuring it and making adjustments from that are what it takes to design out the shrinkage problem. Fortunately for the average component only 1 or 2 dimens...

Do you have to use a raft? I very rarely add a raft to prints on my N1.

Re: Filament grinding always at this part of print

Are you printing with the lid closed? The filament path can get too warm if you have everything closed up while you print and the bed temp is set high. Try running with the lid open

Re: Smaller Raise3D

They used to sell the N1. I have one and it's very good, but no longer offered for sale. I suspect they don't want to try and compete with the myriad of cheap small printers flooding the market.

Re: Surface:

The technology is in its infancy, so it isn't just plug & play - yet. If you think about what your printer is trying to do you soon realize that prints are unlikely to be perfect. So the best you can hope for right now is a compromise. Having said that it may be that somebody here can help you i...

Bug IM 3.3 Rotate Z-axis controls swapped

Just a minor bug observed, but I wondered why I kept getting it wrong! Title: Rotate Z-axis controls swapped Description: When you choose to rotate a model and click on the Z-axis Counter Clock Wise button, the model rotates 90 deg CW. Similarly, the Clock Wise button will spin it 90 deg CCW. The X ...

Re: Printing with ONLY right extruder

Mostly correct. Before step #3, you need to set the left extruder to the filament type, so that you can select the appropriate slicing template, even though you are only going to use the right extruder. Also, Remember to select the right extruder in the platform additions tab. Step #4 is optional. I...

Re: What on **** caused my N2 Dual the throw a new glass plate out of the closed door after 7 hours printing?

Z axis calibration is setting the extruder nozzle height above the build platform. Raise3D provide a feeler gauge, I prefer to use a piece of 80gsm photocopy paper. Z hop is a setting that moves the platform down before the nozzle makes a non-print move, then returns to the previous z position as it...

Re: What on **** caused my N2 Dual the throw a new glass plate out of the closed door after 7 hours printing?

This happened to my N1 and I was using binder clips at the time. It only seems to happen when I'm printing multiple items at at time. My assumption is that there is a nozzle collision with one of the parts, which doesn't happen on single parts because the plastic is still warm and soft. But when it ...

Re: "Model out of range" despite being in range

It's hard to tell from the picture, but it looks like it's too close to the front. The white 'model boundary box' is showing underneath the 'platform extent box'. Check it from top view. If you change the colour of the extruder (using the view option) to say blue, it makes it easier to see how the t...

Re: skirt around grouped objects?

Vicky is right, I do this all the time. Just position the parts less than 2X the 'Skirt Offset Distance' apart, which I think is 3mm by default. But then I thought about it and an easier way is to just increase the S.O.D. to say 10mm and then you won't have to be so fussy with part placement. In cas...

Re: Printing directly on the bed without a RAFT?

I have an N1 and I never use a raft. Where possible I print directly onto glass - PETG and TPU work well like this. PLA usually needs Buildtak or some such to get adhesion. I take care levelling the bed, using 1 thickness of regular 80gsm inkjet printer paper as the 'feeler gauge'. Then print the fi...
