Re: Support not reaching model

It is always hard with support agains curved surfaces. What you can try is if you go to the advanced settings in ideamaker under the support tab and change vertical offset from 0.15 to 0.

Re: Printer review by Thomas Sanladerer

Sorry for the late response. I already read your post straight away, but I just didn't answer (had too much to with uni and so on). I really hope that Joel will read and response to my post but obviously he doesn't. Or why didn't he answer to the last couple of critical comments on this video (http...

Re: Using Makerbot PLA

Are you sure the nozzle is clogging or is it just the filament slipping?

Re: Project Bondtech Extruder

I've got my dual Bondtech setup running pretty well now on my N2! I'm using the Mini / Bowden for the right extruder. Haven't tested that one out a lot, but I've got the main direct drive dialed in pretty well. I'm to the point where I've got pretty good Benchy's from R3D and Hatchbox PLA, Colorfab...

Re: Vertical stripes in X (and Y)

Yes, this is a mechanical problem. I increased the reference voltage on the TMC2100 drivers to 1.1 V, corresponding to a motor current of 0.77 A RMS (and also changed to better heatsinks and optimized the airflow on the heatsinks). This reduced the striations, but they are still there. Stepper moto...

Re: Print not centered

The model is centered (check on the center) But not the print Did you read Vicky's answer above? "Since the glass is 340*332mm but the printing area is 305*305mm (0-305mm for left nozzle, 25-330mm for right nozzle in X direction) and the origin point is at front left corner which have limit sw...

Re: Vertical stripes in X (and Y)

I think this is a mechincal problem. Check if the printhead is solid or has some play to it. Also 0.1 layers can make the bed bounce on N1 because off the cantilever design. Try with 0.2 layers next time

Re: Broken Build Plate

I use a thin PEI sheet on glass. Works perfectly with PLA and ABS and are much more durable than Buildtak. Also printing on glass with hairspary or gluestick works well.

Re: Shoud the extruder wobble like this ?

To me it out off spec. I cheering for Raise3d to get successful but they need to source better bearings and rods to avoid this amount off play in the extruder head.

I have no clue. The point is to try out a Mini extruder as bowden feeder, i have not tested it yet, i need a longer PTFE tube before i can start testing.

Re: Project Bondtech Extruder

Is there ever going to be a turn-key solution to setting the stepping parameters for this that doesn't involve compiling Arduino code or hacking g-code? Like a drop-down in Ideamaker to select the Bondtech extruder? Or a ready-to-go modded version of the printer firmware than can just be loaded int...

Re: Left Nozzle Strike Breaking Supports and Thin Parts

Artic 5 is made for heat transfer, not sealing. Also it is only good for up to 150c.

Re: Clogging during a print

I would suggest you to clean the nozzle and calibrate the filament extrusion. The part you trying to print is kind off insane...

This is the way i do it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ls3B97IHyg

More common method is 100% full infill cube if you don't like my way off calibrating thye filament.

Re: Project Bondtech Extruder

I just realized, I can't compile with the current Arduino IDE - I have to fix it later. I will send you PM. Btw., my e-steps are 141 / 476.5, currently. I think, these should be correct? If e-step is 140 or 141 does not matter much, fine tuning is best done with a calibration cube anyway. But 140 i...

Re: Project Bondtech Extruder

Is this fw working for a dual extruder setup? Yes! However, I didn't run a lot of dual prints so far. I printed more with one or the other extruder. So second extruder e-step in tour fw is set to 492.45? I want to test a mini extruder as bowden, if you are up too it can you modify your fw to 140 st...
