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: Print complete message on N2 touch screen

I concur - having to walk into the printer room for the button-presses is a PIA.

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: ideaMaker 3.4.0 Beta Release Notes

Now, could we please get an update to a current version of Marlin to run the actual printer?

Re: update,.. date?

Will the update include an update to a remotely current version of Marlin for the N-series? It is currently about three years out of date.

Re: When to update firmware and raise touch

Try putting the plate with print in the freezer for a while. The part will shrink, and may even just pop off.

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?

Re: Adjusting Z height while printing

I believe the problem is that the display controller feeds Marlin up to ten GCODE commands in advance, so any codes inserted would be delayed beyond usefulness.

Re: What on **** caused my N2 Dual the throw a new glass plate out of the closed door after 7 hours printing?

Raise3D has been "working on" sequential printing for at least the last two years.
Don't hold your breath waiting, instead, try a fully-functional slicer, such as Cura or Slic3r.

Re: Printing directly on the bed without a RAFT?

A raft is just a crutch for sloppy practice and poorly designed bed material.
Flip the build plate over so glass side is up, use the glue stick that came with the printer, and adjust the first layer height so you can see the extrusion being pushed onto the build plate.

Re: How to print dual color

Or just clip the filament just before the first extruder, and then follow it into the extruder with the second filament until it starts pulling in the second filament.

Re: Can we talk about the Pro2 camera quality?

You could add a $50 Retail USB-to-wi-fi adapter, which should add increased bandwidth and resolution and allow one to view the camera from most computers or phones without any use of the printer's processor at all. Viewing a camera on the printer display is senseless, and most people would prefer to...
