Re: Nozzle Switching During Print

Same answer for one of any dozen issues with the Pro2 specific to the extruder- the cable system is failing you. It's very simple, they changed from a ribbon cable that kept breaking on the N series to a custom cable in hopes it would break less, then added functions like nozzle switching, and then ...

Re: Board error: Temperature sensor error

I disconnected this cable from Motion Control board. Then the raise starts in normal modus. So changing this cable is the solution Did I just read that correctly? You unplugged the cable, and with the cable unplugged, the printer started up with no faults? Again, just to be 100% clear, with the &qu...

Re: Wavier flat surfaces as print gets taller

You start a print, it's attached to the moving bed. Due to bends or other defects in the 2 ball screws connected to the Z axis, there may be a very tiny wobble as the lead screws rotate. Simple math- they are 8mm per revolution, so every 8mm is a wobble cycle. Now, as your part gets taller, the dist...

Re: Board error: Temperature sensor error

The most likely failure in some way shape or form is the cable system between the little circuit board AKA extruder breakout board and the actual motion control board in the lower right filament bay of the printer. That cable flexes millions of times every print job- so prone to failure often near t...

Re: Unwanted addition in printed model

The lessons that need learned are: Your STL still had errors. No getting around this, the source of the problem was in CAD and STL export. Because the STL was flawed- that leads to uncertainty in how various slicers and settings will interpret it. Follow the 3D printing STL rules and you won't have ...

Re: Unwanted addition in printed model

I think we missed the point. #1 the STL has defects in it detected by Ideamaker when you load it. This is a double problems because we know something is wrong, we know we should do "something" about it, the normal "what" is use the built in repair. The issue is, this particular e...

Re: N2 / N2 Plus Camera

No, there is no "list". This was asked for and they will not support 3rd party cameras and most USB webcams are not compatible. You may find a camera that kind sorta works for some functions- but because they hardcoded the commands in the streaming and picture capture software in the Raise...

Re: Unwanted addition in printed model

Where has this originated? I have attached an Inventor IPT file and the STL file. I don't have Inventor on this computer, but I'm sure the error is there in the IPT CAD file. The thing is, when you drew the part, you added, subtracted, and joined various shapes. You modified shapes. That's all fine...

Re: Unwanted addition in printed model

The failure is in your exported STL file from Inventor where you have not properly removed hidden geometery. When the slicer sees these left over pointers in the STL point cloud- it doesn't know what you meant to make, so it makes guesses- mostly wrong guesses. CAD- exact science, measurements and r...

Plug a USB mouse into the printer. Clear the message using the mouse.

I always use alcohol. This is a solvent to most bed adhesion surface prep materials because they are PVA (the A is for Alcohol).

Re: Controlling thickness of horizontal layers

Top and bottom layers on infill tab Simple math, layer height times # of layers= rood and floor "thickness" A good rule of thumb is 3 layers minimum to get a good solid roof or floor, however, 5 or more layers is recommended to not get "pillowing" over infill on roofs. Or, the 1m...

Re: Heatbed temperature regulation issue

Sorry If I sound frustrated, but I read these questions and replies from tech support and I'm astounded. I know in your first question, beyond a shadow of doubt your blew the MOSFET transistor for the heated bed, they fail often in the ON state- thus uncontrolled heater. This is well known. Worse, o...

Re: 300mm z limit

not printing anything larger than 305mm. Every time a print gets to this point the build plate simply stops lowering. I can manually move the build plate down further. If I home the build plate and tell it to lower to 320 it will stop at 305. Almost like it resets at this point. Yes, exactly what I...

Re: 300mm z limit

And the test is, via the control panel, home Z first, wait for that to complete. Then using the jog function buttons, command 400mm of Z travel (using the 10mm increment- yes, I realize that's 40 button presses). Measure with a metric ruler if the Z axis moved 400mm from homed position. If it moved ...
