Re: Strange surface finish on PLA print

I guess I agree. I just printed some fresh-from-the-sealed-box Poly Lite PETG, and it also printed poorly. I wonder what could be wrong with the extruder that all three materials would suffer similarly.

Re: Polycarbonate stringing and poor surface finish

@vicky@raise3d

I have an N2 and am using the settings for the N2. I am using the PC that I purchased from you. So, everything is yours (printer, filament, settings) and it is not working.

Please make constructive suggestions about how to resolve this problem.

Re: Polycarbonate stringing and poor surface finish

I do not have a Pro printer: will your settings work on a regular non-Pro printer? That is, are the settings and slicer compatible?

Re: Polycarbonate stringing and poor surface finish

180 F. I live in the US, and our ovens are in Fahrenheit.

Re: Polycarbonate stringing and poor surface finish

I dried it for 4 hours in the oven at 180, but the next test print was every bit as bad as the first. Something else is going on.

Re: Strange surface finish on PLA print

If the infill was wrong, or if there was water in the filament, then all of the surfaces would have been similarly affected.

The bottom of the print is as the part is oriented in the photos.

Polycarbonate stringing and poor surface finish

I am using the standard settings for PC. Any thoughts about how to improve the prints?

Strange surface finish on PLA print

One side of this print has a very nice finish; the other side is horrible. It is not the PLA or the nozzle or the printer. I imagine that it is the slicer. Any thoughts or comments?

Hardened nozzles

I am considering trying some PLA with embedded carbon fiber, stainless steel, and bronze (from Proto Pasta). I understand that these filaments are more abrasive than regular PLA, so I should replace my nozzle with a hardened nozzle. Any recommendations for nozzles that will fit in an N2+?

Re: PVA (Flex Filament) and Pro2 Serie ?

@Rogman: I have printed with PolyFlex without a problem. I have been unable to use PVA as soluble support for PLA on the N2+.

Re: PVA (Flex Filament) and Pro2 Serie ?

I have never been able to print successfully with PVA on my N2+. If anyone else has, I would appreciate understanding how you did it. This is my main frustration with the N2+

I, too, would appreciate a more specific explanation about what you found and how you would change the design.

Unloading PLA from BondTech extruder

I never had a problem unloading filament with the original Raise3D N2+ dual extruder, but I have to pull the clear plastic tube out of the BondTech each time I unload PLA. It seems that there is a small blob on the end of the filament that is difficult for the BondTech to pass, and I cannot pull har...

This is the cold pull. It looks quite a bit different than the pictures in the cold pull articles.

Re: PolyFlex not loading after PLA

I did another cold pull and managed to get not only the extruder chamber, but also some of the extruded filament to come out. After that, the PolyFlex started to work properly. I guess you have to get the hang of the cold pull, and know when to use some muscle.
