Re: V2 hotend difficult to disassemble?

I haven't met similar issue either. Or any chance you can record a video to show the issue you have been experiencing with? Unfortunately, it's fitted to my printer and I really don't want to pull it apart to demonstrate me unscrewing a thread. If you imagine a person with mechanical sympathy unscr...

Any thoughts as to why the hot end is difficult to disassemble? Can someone try to disassemble one at the Raise office?

Re: ideaMaker Library has Come!

Thanks for this, I feel it will be a great resource for all Raise3D users. I used the profile from the library for printing Taulman Alloy 910 on my N2, it's listed for the Pro2 but printed perfectly. I was very apprehensive about printing with this material as I have heard it is very difficult to pr...

Hi Vicky, there is no real visible damage, my post is about the force required to disassemble the hot end.

V2 hotend difficult to disassemble?

Long story short... I bought a complete new V2 hot end from my local reseller, before I installed it I took it apart to put some hi-temp copper grease on the threads (throat-tube, tiny screws), good practice to make it easier to pull apart for maintenance in the future. I found that the throat tube ...

Re: How to clean a hotend stuck with TPU ?

I had the same issue recently, I've never printed with TPU before and used the Ideamaker profile to run a test print, mine jammed after the first layer. The real problem was when I came to clean the hot-end. I have watched the Raise3D you-tube tutorials and have good mechanical sensibilities. After ...

Re: Touch screen ghost touches

My screen has started doing this too. It started off with the touch functionality dying from the left hand side which necessitated the use of a mouse, now when I turn the printer on, the cursor jumps up and own the right hand side clicking things at random. Of course, the only thing on the right han...

Re: N2 / N2 Plus Camera

A colleague of mine tried the "Logitech C170 (5MP)" and had good success. I use the same one, it's incredibly cheap and seems to work well. The resolution is low but I'm not sure if this is to do with the camera output or a limit on image size in raise cloud, it works well enough to see i...

Re: N2 Touchscreen not reacting to touch on it's left side

Caution, for an N series, the daughter card that connects to that screen has a 12 pin touch interface where as that ebay screen linked has a 6 pin incompatible interface. So the LCD might work, but the touchscreen portion will not. Thanks for the info, guess I'll keep using the mouse plugged into t...

Nonplanar printing

Nonplanar printing improves the surface quality of top layers on parts by incorporating z-travel at the same time as x-y travel, this is especially useful when the upper surfaces of a part have very shallow slopes which accentuate the layer lines, such as spheres. From what I can tell, it's still qu...
