Re: All Belt specs for replacement

Thank you for info. For some reason I was thinking the Z belt was a closed loop. Curious if you think the current belts are suffice or if a wider belt would reduce deflection.

All Belt specs for replacement

Does anyone know where I can find the specs for all the belts on the N2+. I'm sure i could message support to request buying replacement ones but I don't think I want OEM ones. I'm also thinking about migrating to a linear rail system anyway. I'd like to keep the same teeth count and pulley size I t...

Re: Upgraded to a Duet 2 Controller

After running the new board for several months I'm enjoying printing things again. Not a simple swap out by any means. With the new board, 10mm aluminum bed plate machined flat, upgraded 750w bed heater and a BLTouch sensor. I have to say printing things have never been more simple for me. I was alw...

Re: switchable / dimmable LED-Strips

Wouldn't take much with something like an adjustable DC-DC buck converter to allow adjustment via a pot. All a buck converter does is allow you to control the DC output voltage from what the input is down to zero volts. You can get them on Amazon one ebay pretty cheap. One could take it a step furth...

Upgraded to a Duet 2 Controller

I finally got around to upgrading the controller on my Raise3D to a Duet 2 Wifi Controller with filament monitoring. I just got what I'd consider phase 1 completed yesterday. The new main board in and printing and it took a fair amount of new wiring. Actually with no calibrations done yet it printed...

Re: KevinOConnor/klipper Firmware

It would appear your right. I guess instead of wasting my time trying to get it to work with Raise3D hardware. I'll just buy a Duet2 board and hook it up and then use it with the Klipper firmware. Basically your 3D printers board just handles the movements. All the calculations are done on another m...

Re: Project: The next heated bed

I went with a custom sized pad from. https://www.keenovo.com that matched my aluminum plate size. Then I purchased a schaffner FN9290-10-06 power module to replace the stock one. This then breaks out to a couple relay's that then power the whole printer plus the bed since it runs off 120V ac. I don'...

Re: New Heated Bed Reads 738 degrees with no heat

I had got this working but the reported temperature was jumping alot with fluctuations of 20 degrees at most but averaged 5 degree bouncing. Even when it wasn't heating. Well after a a lot of different configurations I finally landed on one that worked. Which was building a RC Low-Pass filter inline...

Re: New Heated Bed Reads 738 degrees with no heat

So when I get this hooked up is the temperature that is displayed suppose to be somewhat right or will the PID autotune fix that? I always thought PID autotune was more for how the bed heats and recovers not anything to do with what the temperature shows. It shows a temp of 295 with ABH Marlin 1.9. ...

Re: New Heated Bed Reads 738 degrees with no heat

Well I got a little farther last night. I cut out all the wiring I had done before and this time just did it all on a breadboard so I could rewire if necessary to find the right config. Currently my issue is that it shows 9 degree's vs 20 degree's like both my extruder's show as I'd think they'd sho...

New Heated Bed Reads 738 degrees with no heat

So I'm on the tail end of upgrading my bed like Socke did with a flat thick aluminum plate. I also upgraded the heater to a keenovo 120V 750 watt silicon heater. It comes with a 2 wire 100k B25°C/50°C=3950±1% thermistor. I then followed what I saw on a couple arduino posts and wired it up with a 10k...

Re: Project: The next heated bed

Wiring temp sensor. Did you add the 10k pull-up resistor and maintain 3 wire hookup or did you just do the 5v and ground and skip the sensor pin while still changing the setting in the Marlin firmware #define TEMP_SENSOR_BED 11? That or use completely different pins on the board? Only difference on ...

Vicky can you answer what the volumetric build rate of your printers are at the different resolutions. Preferable in cm3/hr measure scale.

Re: PRO2 real speed much lower than set speed

Curious if you tried putting it in vase mode for cylindrical shapes to see if it printed as expected? What slicing software did you use? What was all your settings at? Not sure stating that a direct drive will always be slower than bowden systems is a fair statement. The printer that MIT recently bu...

I finally found a supplier in the USA for a cast milled 3/8 aluminum plate. https://www.midweststeelsupply.com/store/castaluminumplateatp5 tolerance is .015" on flatness and .0015" on thickness. I'd like the flatness a litter tighter on its tolerance but will try it first before continuing...

Re: Pro buildplate

That is the reason why we are not going to provide those parts for the upgrade, or the users need to do a lot modification works to make the upgrade works which may do harm to the printer. What happens if a user harms the printer? I'd assume you'd get a sale of a new PRO2 or the user would get a ne...
