Re: Homing the Z-Axis

They work the same. But you will need re-calibrate Z homing screw after putting the new limit swith on. Okay, I'm stumped here. I swapped out the switch and am still seeing the same behavior as before: -The Z-axis motors shudder when trying to move. -If I tap "Down" on the Z-axis control ...

Re: Homing the Z-Axis

Please check whether there is anything stuck on your endstop board which may cause the board think that the Z screw has reached to the original position. Attached a document to show you where and what does the board look like. https://support.raise3d.com/Pro2-Series/endstop-limit-switch-board-insta...

Would you like to share the picture of the parts you are looking? We do have bother Endstops for Pro2 series and N series selling online. 20200612_165835.jpg The top switch is the Z-axis limit switch, with a spare X/Y axis limit switch I have for comparison, which, as you can see is considerably sm...

Re: Homing the Z-Axis

I'm also running into this problem after doing some hot-end maintenance. In the past when I've had a large print and shut the printer down before homing it again, I've been able to manually lift the build platform back to the top and get the printer to reset and "notice" that it had been ...

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

Cool. All done!
It was a little intricate, but overall not hard. If this works out, I'll do the other hot-end too.

Re: Current Rover project

I've been working on a couple different sensor "neck" mounts recently, since some recent drives showed that I needed the sensors to point more at the ground vs. straight ahead. I also needed the depth-camera that I had on the rover for another 'bot, so there was a slight redesign to adapt ...

Re: Current Rover project

A bit of an update: PC(Polycarbonate) is actually the worst of all the materials I've tried for the shaft/axle components. Even at 100% infill it snaps in maybe 5 minutes. Always at the ring-clip slot. I thought it might work better than the NylonX because its more rigid and I've had some sagging/de...

Re: Bltouch on Raise3d

So, from reading this, it looks like I have to give up the Z-Home endstop detector in order to install the BLTouch on my N2+. Is that correct ? Is there a reason you can't use the Z+ socket(Which is unpopulated on my board) vs. Z- ? (Other than the Marlin code hasn't been compiled for that) It looks...

Re: Bondtech gear looks like it's popping out, causing major jam

Update: I opened up the hatch on the right extruder and got the gear out to do some comparisons. I put them both under the USB microscope I keep on my bench and noticed there is some distinct wear between the left gear and axle and right one.

Bondtech gear looks like it's popping out, causing major jam

If you own and use something long enough, you'll eventually find all the different ways to break it :) I've had a couple really bad jams over the past day or so where I got the "click of death" from the Bondtech trying to advance in more filament and getting stuck. What's been particularly...

Re: Adapted Olsson Ruby nozzles

Yes and no. Yes, the hotend itself, heater block, nozzle, thermal barrier tube compatible. No, you need the special heatsink adapter specific to Raise3D N series, you need a 24V heater and K-type thermocouple. So while that kit would give you some of the parts, a lot of it you can't use and are pay...

#1 Get Solex nozzles. They are some of the best nozzles I've used in 10 years of 3D printing. The special 5 axis CNC machined melt path in these nozzles mixes and flows the filament other cheaper machined nozzles that can't match. The only other nozzles I use are Ruby for abrasives, and E3D copper ...

Re: Heater rod/Thermocouple replacement

I think I figured it out. There's a short on the cable for one of the 12V hot-end fans. When the cable on the left fan gets tugged or moves, everything on the heater/fan board cuts off, including the LEDS inside the printer chamber. I've re-headed the connector on that fan and everything appears to ...
