Re: ideaMaker 3.6.1 Release Notes

In this version of IdeaMaker the "Pause at Height" functionality does not seem to work any longer. The option is there under the "Other" tab, but when I assign a pause point on a print it does not pause. I reverted to the 3.6.0 version of IdeaMaker and the functionality works per...

Re: LIN_ADVANCE = better extrusion control

The other issue, Power outage resume is working better, it no longer tries to probe the bed after restart, Just homes X and Y and resumes printing the correct spot, except for some reason it is now printing 4mm higher than the last layer. There must be a command that is dropping the Z axis 4mm befo...

Resume after power loss results in large Z gap

An issue I have been having with my N2 has been that any time there is a failed print due to power loss and I try to RESUME the print, the print bed will immediately drop approximately 10mm before the extruder homes in x-y and purges filament. It will then resume the print job, but now it will be ai...

Re: Slice Engineering Mosquito Hotend Adapters

Actually, I'm curious if anyone has any information about how the Slice Engineering hot ends compare to the E3D hot ends? I've been using the E3D V6 hot end (using this adapter https://forum.raise3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=4841&hilit=E3D ) with the Bondtech extruder on my N2 for a couple yea...

Re: Ideamaker Support Structures Not Generating Properly

Printing model with support generated with high Overhang value will be very hard to print out well. You can consider either print with lower Overhang value and normal Support or add pillars manually to where is lacking of support with Auto-Create Manual Support. We will keep on optimizing support g...

Re: Ideamaker Support Structures Not Generating Properly

I can get that result as well. And for this particular model it would be ok to have that much support structure to remove post-print. The issue that I have has more to do with the software missing obvious support points when trying to minimize support structures to no more than necessary. There is n...

Re: Ideamaker Support Structures Not Generating Properly

Have you tried enabling the Support under Slice but not generating Manual Support in Main interface? Is there any difference? Yes I have. That is what is shown in the first "Print Preview" image I shared. Slicer supports only with no Manual Supports created. The second image is what the M...

Re: Ideamaker Support Structures Not Generating Properly

The images I provided are with the smallest possible pillar size. Changing the support type from pillar to "Normal" does not fix this issue either, nor does scaling the model up to make the features larger. While increasing the size of the model does improve the performance of the autosupp...

Ideamaker Support Structures Not Generating Properly

I've been noticing this issue for quite a while now. Ideamaker seems to be incapable of consistently automatically creating support structures in the necessary locations to properly support a print with even a moderate level of complexity. Every time I want to print something with Ideamaker that has...

Re: PLA Warping? Is it the fan or the PLA?

PLA is more likely to warp from lack of cooling than it is from too much cooling. Generally, with PLA, I've found that the more cooling you can provide directly to the print the better it performs. What temperature are you printing at? I'm using 100% cooling at 205 C. The print I'm referring to war...

I didn't notice that much of a difference, really. I suppose it's a bit smoother, but it wasn't astounding by any means.

Re: Layers offset

I assume you have good bed adhesion? I used to have an issue with the N2 where the glass build plate would sometimes slide to the left or right on large builds. I would put the clips to hold the plate in place on the front end of the bed so nothing was securing it in the 'X' direction. I made some r...

Re: IdeaMaker support for 3DConnexion SpaceNavigator for Notebooks.

We have already added it into our developing plan but we don't really have a lot experience with it from software developing side. It will take us some time to achieve. So, after nearly a year of developing, is there an update you can share on when or whether this functionality will ever be added t...
