Re: ABS/raft almost single part

Let me know if it works out for you. I found in my experimentation that a wider nozzle (and by extension more support / model contact) makes it harder to remove support material for the same reason as a dense raft. 0.4mm might be slow, and chew up print time (and electricity), but it's super easy to...

Re: Can't print with Hatchbox ABS

So one of two things come to mind. You either have a slight temperature problem or you have a slight friction problem. When I used Hatchbox PLA (in lieu of the Raise3D brand premium stuff), I had to set my temperature on the lower end of the suggested Hatchbox range. What I found happening was the m...

Re: Is it OK to buy the Pro 2 now?

I've never had that problem. The Pro2 will retract the non active nozzle upwards by 1-2mm (I haven't taken an actual measurement, so that's just by eyeing it). That ensures the non active nozzle is higher than the printing one. The nozzles will move depending on which one is active. So if you're pri...

Re: Is it OK to buy the Pro 2 now?

Oh I can definitely weigh in on these! For #1: I have my machine out in my workshop. HEPA filters are effective down to 5 micron (if that's a merv 8 which I think it is). You answered your own question though and it's true for any printer - nobody really knows what the long term health effects are. ...

Re: Hot to Improve Support Area Print Quality

If your print bed is completely level, the support and model layers will be flat and smooth as well. I have a vertical offset value of 1. For my PLA prints, I'm using the default PLA Standard profile provided by raise3D (current IdeaMaker version 3.3.0 as of this post timestamp), and everything work...

Re: How is the HEAP filter in the new Pro printers?

Best effort? Having a filter is better than not at all. The fan is pretty well smushed against the filter, so the vast majority of air being cycled is through the filter.

Re: Hatchbox PLA

I'm wondering if my ambient temperature had anything to do with it. I've been printing more PLA with the Raise3D brand, and an ambient temp of 7 degrees has turned out some well adhered and clean parts. Perhaps Hatchbox PLA doesn't like the cold?

Re: Different speeds with dual prints

As above, the pre-group and per-layer settings can be found on the template selection screen. So when you hit "start" (to slice) you'll see three tabs on the popup screen (note, this is NOT under the edit or advanced template). Word of caution, those tabs are meant for more advanced prints...

Re: Hot to Improve Support Area Print Quality

So there's a few different ways. The support density will decrease the space between the wavy lines on the x-y plane, but not increase the thickness of them. Printing with a bigger nozzle will increase the support thickness. You really don't want thick support though as that does give better adhesio...

Re: Is it OK to buy the Pro 2 now?

I received my first Pro2 pretty well on launch day. That one did have a problem and was replaced fairly quickly with a further batch unit. I've had no real issues with the replacement other than having to change out a filament feeder wire. In fact, I've been able to make some pretty nice prints incl...

Re: Cannot print anything

I rarely have clogging issues on Pro2Plus. That doesn't help you, I know - but it definitely is not the norm. Clogging can be caused by a few things: 1) The temperature is either not getting hot enough, or is getting too hot. While super unlikely, you could have a problem with the thermocouples read...

Re: to buy the Raise3d Pro2?

I can't speak to your last two points, but I can answer the first. First - any print I've done with two different filament types on the same layers at the same time will start with type A on the first layer, then go to type B, and move up a layer. It then prints with type B on the second layer and s...

Re: Filament Run-out Sensor Installation PROBLEM

It's not impossible to be a firmware issue, it's unlikely. While I haven't had a problem with my run out sensor like what you're seeing, the sensor board is extremely simple. There's an optical node which emits a red light, and a second node that it's beamed too per filament slot. If filament interr...

Truthfully, the reason the enclosure is on is I've been experimenting with room temperatures for my prints. Currently the room temp is about 6 degrees C, and keeping some of that heat in seems to work really well for my prints. I've printed smaller models and massive models and everything in-between...

Interesting, as I've so far used Raise 3D brand and now one attempt at Hatchbox, which didn't go well! I printed the same large model, temp was set to 190 extruder and 60 bed (Hatchbox PLA) and 205 extruder, 60 bed (Raise 3D PLA) with lid on and front door closed.

Re: First layer fill issue

I've noticed over larger or more complex objects, if I don't have Z-hop enabled, things can get a little wonky. Smaller singular objects have never had a problem with default PLA print settings (or polycarbonate). For example, if you were to print a non hollow tube however high, and maybe 3" in...
