Re: Heater rod/Thermocouple replacement

Can you try PID Auto-Tune once and see whether it can work better or not? https://support.raise3d.com/N2-N2-Plus/adjust-pid-parameter-3-784.html I haven't tried that. I've watching the overshoot when heating go from 2-3 degrees to about 7 or more and the variance while printing get up to about 3 de...

Heater rod/Thermocouple replacement

Is there a document either here or from Raise that details how to replace the heater rod and thermocouple on an N2+ ? The heater on the left hot-end isn't broken, but the hysteresis as it's approaching temperature is getting larger and can bobble by a couple degrees during printing. I've had some sp...

Re: Current Rover project

It's been a long time since I've posted an update here, but the rover is working and rolling around after it's 3rd or so rebuild. The NylonX has been largely replaced with either 8mm cold steel or Polymaker PC. The NylonX actually held up the weight of the entire rover, even on the thinner suspensio...

Re: Adapted Olsson Ruby nozzles

#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 ...

Here's my current project that I've recently finished printing and am now wiring/getting the electronics and sensors installed on: A "Curiosity-style" 1/4 scale rover model. Based on the SAWPPY Rover designed by "Roger Random" on Hackaday, my version was printed on my Raise3D alo...

Re: What sealant should be used

I've been thinking about doing this since early 2018 because the Ender 3 is notorious for jams, and after enough times of my Ender 3 hotend loosening itself and causing major heat creep jams, I'm sick of it. The hotend with this thing is a nightmare. After looking for sealants for awhile, I finally...

Re: Ideamaker questions

First of all, make sure that your printer profile (Under Printer->Current Printer) is set for 2 nozzles. Now, when you go to slice your model, you should see 2 drop-down selectors: one for Left Extruder, one for Right. Click on those drop-downs and select the material template from the list of slici...

Re: Poll - Do you use Ethernet, Wifi or Flash Drive to transfer your files to your Raise3D printer?

Is your printer set up to use DHCP or Static addressing for Ethernet ? It's possible, esp. in a busy environment like a school that you are losing out on DHCP "musical chairs" when your lease expires and either somebody else is getting the address you just had or there are none left to han...

Re: Free IDE (Code Editor) for 3D Printers

Where can I download a (free) IDE (Code Editor) for 3D Printers? There are plenty around for CNC machines. There must be some for 3D Printers. Notepad++ can read and write GCode but it doesn't have a screen simulation for action. CNC IDEs (e.g. NC_Corrector) have a screen simulation but they don't ...

Re: Bracket/Fix for N2 Rotating Z-Axis Ball Nuts

I just saw this thread and printed out a pair in PETG. I installed them last night. I only printed out a 20mm calibration cube but it doesn't seem like it's made anything worse. The huge *THUNK* I used to get whenever the printer went to do a Z-Home or start a print is gone and it seems to generally...

Re: Printing metal and CF filled filaments

Not sure what "hardened nozzle" you're using using - if it's the one from Raise you will blow the tip out of it in less the 1kg of filament. You really need at least hardened tool steel (A2) or a ruby nozzle to use carbon or glass-filled filaments for any length of time. Even the A2 nozzl...

Re: Bad prints / heavy issues

If you're having problems with your Bondtech, check to make sure the set-screw on the inside gear is tight and not causing the gear to wobble and make the filament bind. I ran into this last year and it took me a while to figure out. The symptoms jumped all over the place, just like the gear :D :rol...

Default Export Directory

Is there a method or parameter I can use to set the default directory for sliced models to be exported into ?
I run Ideamaker under Linux and it would be useful if I could set something so that sliced and exported files were always written to /home/jetdillo/Documents/models (or so).
Thanks!
