Re: Slice Engineering Mosquito Hotend Adapters

Very late to this party, but looking to do this on mine for all the reasons you've outlined.

I suspect the batch of adaptors are long gone. Would you care to share a drawing of the adaptor you made, or even just some images?

Re: Stepper Driver Boards

... This was an utter failure of logic and troubleshooting... Respectfully, I trust you don't mean a failure of logic on my part, as I've taken a very logical approach to solving my layer shift issue. I've changed one variable at a time, working through basics such as inspecting belts, checking cou...

Re: Stepper Driver Boards

Many thanks for your replies Jetguy. Reason I ask is because I've been having layer shift issues (see: https://forum.raise3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=20165) and was advised that the issue could be due to the stepper driver boards. I bought two new X/Y ones, but when they arrived I noticed they we...

Stepper Driver Boards

What would be the effect if someone was to plug an extruder stepper driver board (or a Z stepper driver) into the X/Y stepper driver location?

Asking for a friend.

Re: Layer Shift

Same again - shifted in the X, curiously at the exact same height as before and in the same direction. The UK importer has recommended new stepper drivers so I'll give that a go and in the meantime I'll take the back off the machine and double-check all couplings etc.

Re: Delamination problem

Why are you printing on support material? Many of my mechanical devices have several different levels - shelves for example -and the bottom side of a shelf must be resting on support. I want the underside of the shelf to print cleanly. Why do you ask? At face value, it didn't look to me like you ne...

Last time it happened was on the X axis... I've had shifts on both axes.

I've swapped them anyway and I'm currently re-running the same print.

Re: Layer Shift

Urgh... I thought I'd cracked it... All going well then 26min from the end of a 5hr print it shifted X+ 1.28mm I had some masking tape on the front edge of the print bed so I could tell if it had moved the bed but it doesn't look like it has. The print was still firmly attached to the bed, so I don'...

Re: Layer Shift

I ran another print last night and it's shifted twice, both in Y direction, once + once - and both times by what looks to be the same amount. Do you know if 0.7mm equates to one step? I can access the Y coupler via the filament load side of the machine: I just checked the set screws: both the main c...

Re: Raise3D PRO 2 Print quality

Take a look here: https://www.simplify3d.com/support/prin ... -and-zits/

I think the blobs in the first post are start/stop points. I normally use Simplify3D and you can choose to have start/stops placed randomly, which helps reduce the impact.

Layer Shift

I've had several prints fail on my N2 in rapid succession due to layer shift. The one I ran last night made full height but shifted in X and Y in what look to be similar distances in the following manner: - Print reached ~27mm in height then shifted X -0.8mm - Continued for ~5mm then another X -0.8m...

Carbon PET-G issues

I have an N2 with 0.6mm Olson Ruby nozzle, Bondtech drive, glass bed and I'm using 3DLAC on the bed. I'm using S3D to slice. I'm trying to run PET-G Carbon ( https://technologyoutlet.co.uk/collections/premium-3d-printer-filament/products/technology-outlet-premium-pet-g-carbon-fibre-filament ) but de...

Re: Just tell me what will work

Not being pedantic, but it's '3D LAC' - you'll get more hits searching that. It's a tin of condensed magic as far as I can tell... I use it directly on glass with a heated bed and I genuinely can't remember when I last had a print that curled or didn't adhere. I use PLA and PET-G mostly: once the pr...

That's really good to read. Made me smile actually because I'm fairly confident you're not the only one who's been through this kind of learning curve!

x2. I've seen this a few times, especially with PET-G: my solution was no infill under 20% and more top layers, which as you rightly say is a waste of time/filament if you don't need that extra material.

Quickly Changing Nozzles

I have an N2 and regularly use three nozzles: a 0.4mm, a 0.6mm and an Olsson Ruby 0.6mm. As I never know what's coming through the door next, I find myself changing nozzles a fair bit. Despite being able to do it quite quickly, it still takes minutes and I would like to make this process quicker. Wh...
