Re: Ideamaker 0.6mm nozzle settings?

Hi Vicky,
Is it possible to include proper raft settings for all nozzle sizes in next IdeaMaker version? Maybe not so much for the 3D printing purists, but for the general user, it is sometimes the fastest way to get a print to stick and complete. Thanks.

Re: Thermal-Protector - available soon to all

I also received my thermal protector board from Raise last week (Thank You Raise3D) and installed this past weekend on my N2+. No problems other than the pin that had to be removed. I used a very thin tube (or you could 3D print one I suppose) just large enough to fit over the offending pin. I pushe...

Re: Parts cooling mod issue

Hello Iamkar33m, I created the cooling mod in your photo and noticed with the new thermocouples, the body and wire protrudes much farther back than my original TC wires did. Since I have an early version of the printer, the original TC wiring was different and allowed the sharp turn of the wires int...

[BUG][IM3.0.5] Incomplete Support Creation of Small Features

Title: Improper support creation for small (circular) features Description: When comparing how IM 2.6.0 and 3.0.5 creates normal support for small features, it appears there is a problem with IM 3.0.5. The support under the counterbored holes in the model are created properly in IM 2.6.0 but are onl...

Universal Temp Tower

Hi Raisers, I have been trying out a few features of the new IdeaMaker 3 beta and so far I like it. One feature that it brings is extruder temp change by layer height. This easily allows for the slicing of a temp tower which was not readily done in prior versions. There are many temp towers out ther...

Re: Bondtech feeder underextrusion

Hi ChrisM Have you changed your E Steps Per Unit on the printer? You must install the latest touchscreen firmware upgrade to do this. In the Settings menu, you can change the steps per unit for all motors. Just change the E Steps Per Unit. Assuming you have the latest BMG direct extruder, the E step...

Re: Issues with long prints

Hi Flole, I have an early production vintage N2+ which I recently upgraded to the Bondtech dual direct extruder. It worked great for harder materials like PLA and PETG, but did not extrude flexibles at all. I contacted Bondtech directly and they advised to do an "atomic" pull (a.k.a. cold ...

Re: Touchscreen Firmware 0.9.2 Release Note 2017.22.06

Sounds good Vicky. I did save the settings for the right nozzle and it seems to be working.

Thanks for adding it to the list of improvements for the next revision.

Re: Touchscreen Firmware 0.9.2 Release Note 2017.22.06

A quick note on a possible minor bug in the latest Raise Touch firmware 0.9.2.1026. I recently upgraded to the Bondtech dual drive and needed to update to latest Raise Touch firmware in order to adjust E-steps per unit. This worked fine but I also tried PID autotune. The left nozzle worked correctly...

Re: Request to enable FAN0 output on breakout board

Firesped, that would be great if the next firmware release opened this up. Not sure when it will happen though. We have been at V1.1.1 for some time but I will keep an eye out. Jetguy, thanks for confirming that a bad firmware write can be reversed fairly easily. This gives me some encouragement to ...

Re: Request to enable FAN0 output on breakout board

Thanks for the info Jetguy. I will try the splice and/or starting gcode method to control both fans. Since I am illiterate when it comes to programming firmware at the moment, I prefer to not go there for fear of bricking my machine. Your suggestions should get me to where I want to go at least shor...

Request to enable FAN0 output on breakout board

I would like to request that the FAN0 output connector be enabled on the extruder breakout board in one of the upcoming firmware updates (see photo with FAN0 connector outlined in yellow). I have been using my N2+ for about a year (first 3D printer) and am very happy with it so far. I have made some...

Re: What's a good reliable PLA

I use Microcenter's Inland filaments most of the time. They work great in my N2 Plus dual V2. I have used their PLA, ABS, PETG, PC, PVA, Flexible and eLastic filaments. Good filaments, lots of color choices and a great value. All extruded fine with the stock setup except the eLastic filament. I modd...

Re: N2/N2+ model cooling fans

Hi Vicky. For larger prints, it does not seem to make much difference compared to the stock cooling, but for small parts and features, it helps to "freeze" the print quicker with the focused cooling and results in better detail. So far, I have used this mod for cooling PLA, PETG and (semi)...

Another N2/N2+ filament guide tube bracket

I know there are several other PTFE guide tube bracket designs out there already, but I figured I would share the one I came up with some time ago. This one allows removal of the front acrylic extruder cover without removing the filament guide tube bracket.
