Re: Uneven layer

First layers are always fun, they show you how many high and low spot areas there are in your build plate.

Re: Pricise mating of solids in IdeaMaker ?

If you can, in the assembly of both models in your CAD program of choice, suppress the one model and save the assembly as one file, then un-suppress the second part and suppress the first part and save as a second STL. This makes both parts using the common origin of the assembly and when you import...

Re: Filament Run-out Sensor Install Problem

I installed the sensor, with the mods to make the path smoother and straighter, then I turned it on and of course it intermittently says there is no filament present even when there is, sensor not seeing the plastic or just too sloppy a path around the sensor range, but I carry on and get it to see ...

Re: ideamaker object dimensions

My advice is to translate the file out of your favorite CAD program again to STL, paying attention to the units you used in the CAD program, then when you open the STL in Ideamaker or your slicer of choice be careful where you drag as the scale can happen if you happen to be in the "size" ...

Re: Bed Adhesion Chipping Glass

I've seen .125" thick glass crack in half if left in a printer and allowed to cool slowly, if you can immediately after printing is done remove glass build plate from printer and allow to cool quickly, this will usually cause the part to cool rapidly and make it "pop" off the glass ra...

Re: ideamaker object dimensions

This is the most basic and common mistake for people starting out in 3D printing. It does not matter what units you model in, it could be inches, meters, feet, miles. At the time of export, every CAD program exports a set units that is a setting you must set to mm. The STL file is a unitless file. ...

Re: N series camera - missing matching Raise Touch update

Due to my contacts, I had an unofficial pre-production camera from Raise3D to use as a trail and in order to use it I was given a different version of the desktop software to install in order to see the camera from my PC and the printer touchscreen.

Re: Assambly in IdeaMaker

A quick tip. In whatever CAD system you use to create your parts and assembly, usually individual parts will have their own unique zero origin location and this can lead to them not aligning the way you expect in IdeaMaker. if you can in your preferred CAD system having the assembly open and suppres...

Re: Model release

I have removed the buildtak on both my N2 and N1 ... it was the first thing I did before the first print. Hairspray on Glass works for TPU, PETG, PLA and I think ABS, but I dont print ABS. Then, let the plate cool to Room Temp (ie, under 30c) and it should literally pop off itself, or with a slight...
