Re: Tungsten Premium Nozzle?

This is absolutely INCORRECT, Tungsten is NOT significantly more thermally conductive than Brass. According to the interwebz, brass has a thermal conductivity anywhere from 60 to 120 W/m K, depending on the alloy. Tungsten has a thermal conductivity of around 180 W/m K. So if you don't consider dou...

Re: Source for Reasonably-Priced Nozzles

Yeah, I knew they're M6, I just wasn't sure if the seat that butts against the feed tube is special in any way, thanks!

Re: Source for Reasonably-Priced Nozzles

I guess I'll just have to buy some from various sources and test them, thanks.

Re: Rafts Y/N? (Supports not sticking to bed)

I print PLA, PETG, and PolyMide on PEI. If the print has a large amount of surface area in contact with the bed, I will often go raftless. With parts that have only edges, or a lot of support, in contact with the bed I use a raft to ensure adhesion. Never had a problem with raft removal, they peel r...

Source for Reasonably-Priced Nozzles

Looking for a U.S. source for decent-quality N2-compatible brass nozzles at a rational price. I would be happy to patronize Raise3D or its resellers, but I'm not going to pay $20 for a 30-cent nozzle. I don't need stainless or ruby or hardened or anything special, just a nice brass nozzle that fits ...

It can, and has, happened with the PTFE tube installed as it comes from the factory.

Re: Filament delivery

Looks good, but what problem is it solving? I haven't had any issues with the stock setup - at least none that this would resolve. With a relatively full spool and a bit of rotational momentum, the stock setup can sometimes spill filament off the spool, which wraps around the holder axle and jams, ...

Re: Filament delivery

I use overhead with all my other printers, but I like leaving the cover on the N2 because it greatly reduces the sound level.

Re: Spiral print rough on one side

T-Glase and PC are going to have very different melting, extrusion, and solidifying characteristics, that could absolutely account for this kind of different outcome.

Re: Printer Filament Monitor

Has this thing shipped yet? I'm pretty sure I pre-ordered as soon as I got the email. If not, any new release date? Last estimate from Raise was "March", which I'm pretty sure is over.

Re: Are Templates Updated on Import?

Like you, I've used the original N2 templates even though I've had a V2 since the day they came out. I'm asking because I only just realized I've been using the "wrong" printer setting all this time, lol.

Re: Are Templates Updated on Import?

Ah, thanks. I assumed there might be some parameter differences like extrusion rates, retraction, etc.
