Re: Prusa Mk3s MMU2s

No, best to use the well supported Prusa slicer.

Re: G02 and G03 in Ideamaker on Raise3d?

The reasons I said what I said was, history and listening to this discussion a couple of times a year for the last 10 years. G2 arc support requires end to end complete overhaul to actually properly implement. In other words, it starts at CAD supporting and incorporating true arcs, then exporting in...

Re: G02 and G03 in Ideamaker on Raise3d?

Given that the input format STL doesn't actually have arcs, being the firmware doesn't support arcs, not the genius idea you think it is.
There are good reasons it's not implemented nor is it likely to be anytime soon.

Re: Leveling the right print head vs the left

In all honestly, no different than the method for the N series- just minor difference in how it clamps. "The process" is the same. The idea being, you use left as a reference. You get the bed adjusted for the left nozzle so that the bed homes and parks just right with the feeler gauge for ...

Yes, part of the instructions for "installing the hotend" https://support.raise3d.com/Pro2-Series/how-to-install-the-hotend-4-289.html In a summary, you set your basic Z gap using the LEFT nozzle and feeler gauge Once set, then loosen the right nozzle mounting, put the feeler gauge under t...

Re: Part dimension correction

FWIW, poking around in the version of Ideamaker on this computer, they seem to have added a feature. I personally have never used this feature, nor am I likely to. Now how well it works??- I cannot vouch for in any way shape or form. Maybe it works, maybe it doesn't. I still stand by my advice. You ...

Re: Part dimension correction

Also note, suggestions like increasing the number of polygons when exporting has pros and cons and MOSTLY cons. The more polygons you export, the harder everything ELSE has to work to then process that file. The slicer may choke and slow down and take forever creating the gcode file. The print file ...

Re: How to calibrate / check the E-Steps?

Yes, per the instructions, you slightly adjust flow rate to fine tune final volume. I guess what I'm trying to get people to understand, I see people beg and beg for "profiles for X filament. Worse, I see some newer person beg and demand for a certified profile from raise3D. YOU the user STILL ...

Re: RepRap Full Graphics Display

Again, sorry for this being confusing but again, the problem is that the very group that first made Reprap discount displays made the mistake. It (the mistake of flipped plugs compared to proper orientation) sort of became the standard. Then others came along and corrected the mistake. This results ...

Re: RepRap Full Graphics Display

#1 yes, that firmware supports it, NO NEED TO DO ANYTHING. #2 depending on which display you got a long standing issue is the standard is the plugs can be backwards on some display boards!!! This is a mistake that somehow happens often. Some time ago, the very first ones got soldered backwards compa...

Re: 642-edges, 566 Non-manifold -- Ooops

Netfabb says it's not. I'm not trying to get too deep into yet another argument over STL and design rule checks, but no, it's not passing the checks. I've uploaded a repaired version from Netfabb.

Re: Inquiry on Z Rod that contains the ball bearings

One of the few threads I could find with pictures. https://forum.raise3d.com/viewtopic.php ... elt#p20717
Single motor is attached via a flex coupler, and then the belt drive transfers power to the far shaft tip of the other ballscrew.

Re: Inquiry on Z Rod that contains the ball bearings

Pro2 is the same frame as the N series.
ONE Z motor drives both ballscrews via a timing belt in the base.

Re: Bottom Surface Flowrate

Temperature tuning as a topic. Plastic has a range of temperature that we often work in. One example is that many plastics have a temperature that is not melting, but the material loses mechanical strength and becomes like a cooked noodle rather than semi rigid solid filament. That is the glass tran...

I just want to make it clear. I am NEVER impressed with Ideamaker. It was an OK bare minimum slicer in the beginning.

Re: Won't print

Lesson, always set the correct value in IM and don't rely on RaiseTouch to set the correct value, even though it HAS the correct value. No, this is also a bad incorrect lesson as you have written it. You MUST properly ensure that raise touch is saving and using the steps per mm configuration for yo...
