Re: Raise touch operation after filament-out detection

In case anyone has the same question about the raise touch operation after a filament-out detection as me in the post above, the answer (as I eventually discovered) is simple. You can use the extruder 'pre-load' feature on the raise touch to manually purge the nozzle to ensure that filament beings e...

Re: Berd-Air -- no voltage to HE2 pin

I am surprised that you can hear an audible difference with the capacitor fitted. I might investigate the reason for this when I eventually changeover to my Berdair system.

Anyway, good to know that yours is working as it should.

Re: Berd-Air -- no voltage to HE2 pin

Hi John, Try removing only the capacitor. The capacitor is there to reduce electrical noise from the motor, however suspect it might also be 'suppressing' the PWM signals from the controller. If removing it works then continue without it. The diode is the most important component. With regards to my...

Raise touch operation after filament-out detection

Can anyone with the filament run out sensor fitted confirm whether or not the Raise Touch allows the extruders to be purged manually whilst the print job has been paused in response to a ‘filament-out’ detection? I am considering adding a filament out sensor but I have observed that upon resuming fr...

Re: Berd-Air -- no voltage to HE2 pin

I have a separate 12V PSU to supply the Pump. I will tie the 0V rail of the N2 to the 0V rail of the separate PSU and use the HE2 MOSFET to control the pump by switching the 0V line. I plan to set it up with minimal changes to the N2 to begin with, as I not convinced about the long term durability o...

Re: Berd-Air -- no voltage to HE2 pin

Hi John, Good to know you have resolved the issue. Based on the tests you carried out on the MOSFET I had reached the conclusion that the HE2 pin of the CPU was not being driven by the firmware. Your explanation supports this, so all is good hardware wise. The MOSFETs used on the controller PCB are ...

John Having seen your extensive N2 grades I suspect you are more than capable of locating the X axis faults and I not wish to appear to teach you to suck eggs but for what it’s worth I’ll throw my thoughts in the pot. They might or might not be useful. Treating the problems described in the posts ab...

Re: Berd-Air -- no voltage to HE2 pin

John, I have just checked my own N2 Controller Board and confirmed that the positive pin of the HE2 output is tied to +24V and not 12V. Sorry this was my mistake. I have edited my previous post to reference 24V where appropriate to avoid misleading others reading the thread. The checks I have asked ...

Re: Berd-Air -- no voltage to HE2 pin

John *** EDITED to correct invalid reference to 12V ******** I note that you state the LED associated with HE2 is not illuminating when you command the output to turn ON. This is not related to the 24V rail. In my current thinking there could be 3 possible reasons for the LED not illuminating; a) So...

Re: Berd-Air -- no voltage to HE2 pin

Hi John, Is it only the 12V from HE2 that is missing? Is the LED associated with the HE2 output working normally? Do you have 12V on any of the other ‘12V Outputs’? The reason I ask is that I am wondering if the 12V regulator has failed. We do not have the exact schematics for the Raise3D version of...

Re: How I more than doubled my print speed while increasing accuracy

Wow John, that is pioneering at its best. Was that video in real time? What size nozzle were you using? Did you mill the extruder carrier out of aluminium or is it some other material? I and I'm sure others on the forum, are very keen to know more. It would be nice to see photos of the surface quali...

Re: How to create 3D Print files with Live 3D Print Process support on the Touchscreen?

I'm using an older version of ideaMaker Ver.3.1.7.1850.

Only because I am working on a long project and do not want to introduce unexpected results part way through. Will update later.

Re: How to create 3D Print files with Live 3D Print Process support on the Touchscreen?

@phidon Third time lucky! I have just downloaded your files and tried them on my N2. Answer. No image is displayed on the touchscreen when printing. Neither is there a file icon image (only RAISE3D is shown). This was I think the same as you saw. However, I then downloaded the speed boat STL from Th...

Re: Silicone Hot End Covers anyone tried these?

One of the benefits of the hotend covers should be to prevent excess heat affecting the printed part as it prints, particularly where there are fine layers, for example at the top of a cone. There are some early posts somewhere on the forum with pictures that explain this better. Since I have not be...
