Re: Dimensions of Fila coils

From your posts I assume you have a Pro2 series printer, therefore I’m not sure why your asking.

I’d have to measure to the door but even the stock spool will move and rub as it turns. There is a little more room but not much. We have several wider spools we must run with the door open.

Re: Dimensions of Fila coils

Are the ones that came with your printer different?

The dimensions of the Red Spool which came with our N2+ are:
Width ~ 67mm
Outer Diameter ~ 200mm
Inner Diameter ~ 55mm

Re: sales complaint

We have an N2 and an N2+ and on January 23 I ordered and was charged for 2 of the filament run out sensors (with the thermal fix also). These finally shipped in March, and we received a single unit. I waited a few days to see if the second unit would arrive, and it didn't, so I emailed in to the sa...

Re: N2-V2 bed plate clamps

Are those clamps hitting the glass and the base plate? I.e. Clamp bottom, base plate, adjustment screws, heated bed, glass and clamp top?

If so, I’m not sure that would be a good idea since I would think it would effect the bed leveling. Definitely couldn’t use them with spring mod for bed leveling.

Re: auto-height (not auto-level)

I've had an N2+ for nearly a year. I really like it except for the bed leveling. I understand what you're saying Michael, but every time I heat the bed to a different temperature (different materials), the flatness will vary, not to mention when I switch out the glass to build on different surfaces...

Re: bedplate leveling dial indicator

That's the beauty of the mount for the single, there's nothing to unbolt before using it. Just bolt on the dial gauge when using it and remove it when done. Nothing else on the printer needs to be touched.

Re: Scratches on the Top Cover

We used (reused) some of the clear wrap that came on the printer to protect the top and filament door. We plan to make risers for the lid so we can remove the film, but don’t see a better solution for the filament spools & filament rubbing the door.

We have a N2+ single extruder and I use this one: http://forum.raise3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=6460#p25779 I actually had to modify it a bit since our dial gauge had a deeper attachment lug and it was hitting the fan. I’m working on a new one trying to get the gauge closer to the nozzle location...

Re: Your favorite PLA Brand

I tried my first roll of eSun PLA+ and really like it. Prints well at 215 and a 60 bed on our N2+.
I got mine locally at Fry's but it's available at Amazon too.

Yes, but at least they seem to have a time frame.
It says:
"We've sold out!
Expect more in 5 weeks"

But then again, it begs the question, 5 weeks from when?

Re: Touchscreen Firmware 0.9.10 Release Note 2018.6.5

The failure to connect with printer started immediately I upgraded to 0.9.10. I have rolled back to 0.9.7 and still cannot connect to printer. Have you tried to used any of the advanced settings in 0.9.10 to set the Ethernet speed to 100Mbps? If not, I would give this a try. I too thought a firmwar...

Re: Poll - Do you use Ethernet, Wifi or Flash Drive to transfer your files to your Raise3D printer?

I also agree that if we keep the poll going we should now state which printer since there are two series. I initially made the poll to figure out if I was the only person using ethernet and/or the only one with a problem using ethernet. I had my suspicions at the time that my issues were related to ...

Re: Poll - Do you use Ethernet, Wifi or Flash Drive to transfer your files to your Raise3D printer?

Again, the same code, same processor, same PHY Ethernet IC, however minor differences in the actual board itself between the PHY chip and the physical Ethernet jack. And yes, this produced a data point with a different result. Very interesting! Is it the exact same processor? And exact same code, a...

Re: Poll - Do you use Ethernet, Wifi or Flash Drive to transfer your files to your Raise3D printer?

I have been using the Wifi feature, primarily because the ethernet port doesn't work. My company's IT department has everything working on their end and went in to configure the setup to run on our wired network, but it just wouldn't work. Unfortunately as well, per company policy, all USB ports ar...

Re: Improvements by using TMC2130 driver.

I don't think the drivers have anything to do with micro stepping even though the new drivers might do better. It's all about better control of the motors and removing the interpolation issues of Stealthchop1 on the TMC2100 drivers. As for smoothness of rounded surfaces, check you CAD settings. I ha...

Re: Buildtak Flexplate on Pro2

We had been looking for the FlexPlate System since we purchase our N2+ in April, but it wasn't available.
Last Friday, 5/25/18, I received an email from Buildtak letting me know the FlexPlate was now available. Therefore I don't think many people have tried it yet.

Re: Buildtak Impression

Not sure if it’s exactly the same issue but looked similar.
I had that happen a couple of times when trying new settings with a PETG. I think the bed temp was too high for the PETG (90C) and it stuck good, too good. We now use 80C bed and haven’t had those issues anymore.
