Re: PLA bed adhesion

The absolute best thing I've found for PLA and ABS bed adhesion is Magigoo. This stuff is amazing. I think you can get it from MatterHackers.

Re: Ideamaker has problems with top infill in some cases

This is a chronic problem I run into with IdeaMaker as well. It would be very nice if a perimeter, or internal shell, were formed to support top level solid infills on prints with lower percentage infills.

Re: Berd Air system additional cooling setup for N2 (firmware)

Yeah, I considered that. I might end up going that route, too, but I was hoping to avoid the wiring nightmare that that approach would involve. There has to be a way to modify the firmware such that two pins are enabled instead of just one when the g-code controlled fan turns on, right?

Re: Berd Air system additional cooling setup for N2 (firmware)

Can you modify your slicer to output an additional code to turn on the second fan at the same time? I use simplify3d and it's under firmware settings. I don't think so. I'm fairly certain IdeaMaker doesn't have that setting, and I can't seem to find it in Cura either. I've poked around in the Marli...

Berd Air system additional cooling setup for N2 (firmware)

I have a question that I'm hoping someone can help me with. I have been running the 24V Berd Air cooling system with my N2 for a while now and it works great. However, I've found that I sometimes need to supplement it with an additional cooling fan to avoid some issues on overhangs and the like. I'v...

Re: Can anyone identify this filament

We haven't sold any filament with that package by now. And with the package, I cannot figure out which filament it is either. Vicky, I just received this exact same package YESTERDAY from Raise3d. See my above comment. It was the "Art White" PLA filament. The other two rolls of filament I...

Re: Can anyone identify this filament

Yeah, I was really surprised when I got it today and found it in an unmarked generic box. Pretty poor product presentation, especially considering the pricepoint for PLA and the fancy nice red boxes R3D's other filaments come in. I can only assume that it's another company's filament that Raise3D bo...

That looks EXACTLY like the spool of "R3D Premium PLA Filament - Art White (Extreme Smooth Surface Quality)" that I just received today. I mean, identical in every way.

Re: Nozzle drags on raft

I have noticed the same problem both on the raft and solid fill surfaces. The nozzle will drag right across the surface regardless of the settings I am using. Is there a way that we can ensure that ALL non-extruding travel executes a retraction and z-hop?

Re: Polymaker PC-Max woes

Dense layers may help. What is your setting for "Vertical Offset Top Layers" under Support? You might also try reducing that to 1 or 0 if dense support layers don't help. It might make the supports harder to remove, though (thereby resulting in slightly grosser surface finish).

Re: Polymaker PC-Max woes

I do a good amount of printing with PC-Max and get good results with it. That being said, however, I only ever do single nozzle printing. I long ago gave up on dual nozzle prints and removed the second nozzle and extruder from my machine entirely. I've found that with the right settings I can get a ...

Re: Round Surface Not Smooth

When you go to create the stl file in Solidworks, click on "Options" in the Save As dialog. Then you can adjust the resolution. "Deviation" should be the variable you are looking for.

Re: Better time counter

The time it takes to preheat the bed and nozzle is always going to vary depending on ambient conditions and such, so why even bother including it in the time counter at all? I think the timer should only include actual printing time.

Dense Support Layer Gap Setting?

I have had excellent results in IdeaMaker when I've needed to print with a raft by adjusting the "Raft Gap from Model" setting under the Platform Additions tab in print settings. What I'm wondering is whether there is a way to implement a similar gap for the "Dense Support Layers"...

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

Well then im at a loss to explain the difference but I do agree with Jetguy that the hotend is probably not running hotter then requested. The photo shows a part that didn't have time to cool down between layers not necessarily extruded too hot to start with. turn on the berd and see what happens. ...

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

3 things I think that affect your results are: #1 copper nozzle does put more heat into the filament than your previous Rais3D nozzle (coated or uncoated brass) #2 the shape and total height of an E3D nozzle is different than the pointy long cone tip of a Raise3D nozzle. #3 the E3D tip also has a f...

So here is what I think is happening based on what's been said so far. correct me if this is not correct On the stock R3D fan setup layer cooling is always on. With your current setup it is now optional and off. This would explain the differences you are seeing. BTW layer cooling with ABS can be be...

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

I did. I designed a new fan duct for your adapter that mounts to a 40mm fan. I put the .stl file here if you are interested.

I'm also setting up the Berd Air system, but haven't tested it yet, as I haven't run any filament that requires layer cooling yet.
