Re: Why does my printer keep trying to connect to the Raise3d server

And no way to turn this feature Off? That's quite a security exposure.

Re: Anybody using a HUMIDIFIER in their printer room?

It is High humidity that causes printing clogs, because the filament absorbs moisture and reacts by over-expanding when heated. You would need a dehumidifier if the humidity was too high in the summer. I imagine too-low humidity could conceivably be causing static electricity and printer electronics...

Re: 4 bolts

No! They have to be loose enough that the nut can move sideways to allow for imperfection in the threaded rod.

Re: Beware mid-print filament change

Just cut the filament a cm above the printhead, then follow the old filament into the printhead with the new one, while the print continues. No interruptions, no pausing, no failures from this in years on many long prints. Pause and reload is an unreliable loser.

Re: Head covered with plastic

Remove any parts you can, eat up the both nozzles for a while until the glob gets gummy, and you may be able to pull most of it off in one piece.
The plastic is probably not sticking to the head much, just surrounding it. I had a similar problem and the plastic came off clean after reheating it.

Put the buildplate with print in the freezer for a while. The print will usually come loose or pop off.

Re: Marlin 2.0

A LOT of people would like Raise3D to update Marlin for their printers. They have been ignoring the requests for a long time, which shows a remarkably poor level of support for their products.

Re: Can I priint without Silicone Cover ?

Yes, you can print without it. The only minor risk is that some plastic may stick to the nozzle while printing.

Re: What is the part, and why is it smoking and loose?

Start by tightening the screw in each of the small holes. If any of them are at all loose, that's probably the source of the problem - a poor connection that heated up.
If tightening the screws fixes the issue temporarily, replace the whole terminal block anyway. Most hardware stores will have them.

Re: Ordering Filament is painful!

There is really no reason to buy filament from your printer company, as they are just selling relabeled filament made by someone else.

Re: Ordering Filament is painful!

Perhaps you could try ordering a different brand of filament or from a different vendor? Try Amazon - it's much less painful…

Re: Need a strong material to make a Buckle Snap

ABS has both flexibility and strength, and is generally easier to print than nylon.

Re: I need help with making a smooth dome

Adaptive Layer Height can make the layers look like roughly the same width, but any near-horizontal surface is going to show the edges of the layers.

Re: PEHD, Polyethylene high density

I haven't tried printing it, but I'd bet that it won't stick to any bed material or treatment.
Perhaps the perforated circuit-board bed used on some printers might create enough mechanical attachment to hold a piece in place?
