Re: N1 Printer stops during Print

my problem with the printer is, that i dont know how it works.... I know that feeling! When my N1 'froze' last year I called tech support in the UK. The advice I got - Change the Motion Control board but, if that doesn't fix it, change the Touchscreen board - was not too helpful. These replacement ...

Re: Stay hot after a print completes

That's a good workaround Jetguy, thanks. I would really like to see a time-limited 'stay hot option', just like load/unload filament has, as that would be safer.

I can't be the only user that would benefit from this feature. Any chance Vicky?

Stay hot after a print completes

Hi Vicky My N1 turns off the extruder and bed heaters as soon as a print completes. This is fine if you don't use the printer very much, but at the moment I'm running 20 prints/day and it's running constantly. I understand the safety issues of leaving a printer hot for too long, but if it kept hot f...

Re: N1 Printer stops during Print

I had the same problem with my N1 last May - viewtopic.php?f=2&t=15567

I thought it was the USB cable for a while, but ultimately I had to replace the Extruder Connection Board. That fixed it immediately and it's been running fine ever since.

Why is RaiseCloud App asking for personal data?

Hi Vicky, Please pass this observation on to the RaiseCloud App team After the RaiseCloud app on my iPhone updated today, I had to go through the login process again. A little annoying as that shouldn't be necessary for an app update. But then it asked me a list of totally unacceptable questions (on...

Re: Clog or heat creep

Shelton have you considered that 3D printing may not be ready for you yet? These are very early days for FDM technology and we are a very long way from plug & play. There are no 3D printer manufacturers that have all the answers today, the best any one of them can achieve is 'just about okay', s...

Re: Another Quad Fan Plan - now Penta Fan

Interesting arrangement. If fan #5 is cooling the cold end heatsinks, do you still need the two inboard fans? What is the noise level like? I changed my 30mm cold end fans for 40mm Noctua fans to reduce the noise, but I'm guessing your 5up squirell cage design is loud.

Re: Connect N1 with Ethernet Cable

The IP numbers are important and it seems like you are mixing them up a bit. You say your router's ip address is 192.168.1.1 if that's the case then everything within your network must have a unique address of this form 192.168.1.X (where X is any number between 2 and 255)

Model off the bed in Preview using Right Extruder

Hi Vicky

I think this might be a bug in 3.5.2.4098

Setting the model to Right Hand Extruder and moving it over towards the right side of the build plate - all looks okay

Slice it and the Preview shows this...

Re: How to stack prints?

Secondary question - what is the maximum flow rate of the V2 extruder on the N1? I have seen numbers for the E3D V6 extruder at 10 cubic mm per second and the Mosquito Magnum at 30 cubic mm per second. This obviously governs the speed, given a nozzle size and layer height, and I want to be sure that...

How to stack prints?

Hi Vicky, I'm printing the Prusa face mask parts singly at the moment. There's an STL of a stack of 2 (and a stack of 4) of the mask parts, which gives you more walkaway time, but when I try and print the 2x version they don't come apart very eaily in post-processing. Looking at the stl there is a s...

Re: Blobs on the surface of my prints

Thanks Vicky. Changing the layer start point made a lot of difference. I was still getting a couple of blobs, but just changed to a different filament supplier and now I'm printing much cleaner parts.

Tool Tips, IM Manual - Need for more complete information

Hi Vicky, Firstly, let me just say that I think ideaMaker is a super piece of software and the manual is pretty good. However, 3D printing is complex and requires much more than just pressing a PRINT button. The solution to most printing problems can be found in the Advanced Settings, because just a...
