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...

Re: Upload to RaiseCloud?

I was thinking about this today too. I think what Noren means is when you slice a model in ideamaker, you have two options: - Export to local disk - Upload to Printer A third option to upload to RaiseCloud would be useful, currently I have to Export to Local Disk then upload the files via RaiseCloud...

Re: Working with Raisecloud

I only have 1 printer too, while I agree RaiseCloud is quite "feature rich" for single printer users, the way that it is organised means you don't have to use those tabs. I visited the forum today to say thanks to the Raise3D development team for RaiseCloud, the ability for me to start job...

Re: Bad prints / heavy issues

This looks like not enough filament, did you change your extrusion width settings in the slicer?

Re: Other brand materials setting

We have an open filament program with different filament manufacturers. You can get more information from here: https://www.raise3d.com/pages/the-open-filament-program. We will keep on extending the list. Can you please add support for the older printers to the filament list, I have an N2 and I see...

Re: First layer fill issue

I'd like to have you test some settings if you'd like to have a try. Edit the first layer height to be 0.2mm, print speed of first layer to be 10mm/s. Increase bed temperature to be 55-60C to provide better adhesion for the first layer. Enable Print Shells in optimal order can provide better bindin...

Re: First layer fill issue

Sure, the file is too large to attach here as a zip, I have put it on my dropbox here images of the first layer printing here This issue is not just limited to this model and I believe this also contributes to a similarly bad finish on the top layer too, the top is harder to confirm as I'm not usual...

First layer fill issue

I've noticed that I get different results for the first layer solid fill dependent on the direction of travel of the extruder. The easiest way to describe this is to imagine printing an item where the bottom layer is a square, I have found that I get terrible infill if the print head starts at the t...

Re: Engineering plastic filament

Forum member mhayduk has printed with it. I recall that it was a struggle. Don't know where he ended up with the stuff. I have a couple samples, but have never tried printing with it. You might try messaging mhayduk (Matt) to see what his experience was. Thanks, I'll wait a few days to see if he sp...

Engineering plastic filament

Does anyone have any experience with any of the Igus Iglide 3D printing filaments? Particularly, how it prints (I'm using an N2) and also how it performs in the real world. This is a specialist engineering filament designed for load bearing applications. There's a lot of information on various sourc...

Re: Coasters

My first thought is not the buildplate, it's the fact this Spring is all over temp wise. The thing you have to understand is you do not have a patent protected chamber temp control and even heated airflow. That's literally the line in the sand between a over $10k+ patent protected printer and a con...

Currently there is no way to find out the print settings from .gcode file. We are trying to develop the function to add settings into .gcode file and find a way to export the settings out.

Re: Engine Cylinder head

Great to see some more mechanical engineering projects, I look forward to seeing how this progresses. Keep us informed of your progress with the support material, I'm working on some test prints for a motorcycle throttle body in my [limited] spare time and the support material is the biggest hurdle.
