Yeah, printing for years now and that's also a good explanation for the dirt... 8-)

heated bed repair / don't use that metallic clamps

Lately I had to refit my printing plate and when securing it with the metallic clamps that came with the printer I saw some arcing from below the bed on the left side. There are warnings in the forum about that, now I will take care and use isolated clamps. 8-) After that the bed temp was always sen...

Re: IM should adjust scaling factor on 'max fit' function

Found myself using false arguments. While the explanation is right it does not fit to the actual IM settings.

IM is not using a scaling factor but a percentage what shifts the results into the correct accuracy.
Forget about more than 2 digits precision. 8-)

Re: IM should adjust scaling factor on 'max fit' function

May I ask why you need 3 decimal places? It is 2 in most cases. That's because I was thinking about the use case :-) I don't think that scaling small objects of let's say 50mm to the full build size of an N2+ makes sense (but who am I to tell that)? So I thought about an object of 150mm that should...

Re: IM should adjust scaling factor on 'max fit' function

Great. You could also give him the hint that for this to work properly a minimum resolution of 3 decimal digits for the final scaling factor is needed (2 is not enough) :-)

Re: IM should adjust scaling factor on 'max fit' function

Maybe a translation issue John!? BTW I do not use the current version (still on 2.1.6.110 until the one that fixes the seam is out :-)). I use 'Max Fit' for a multi part object (first pic is before the Max Fit). After clicking 'Max Fit' the sizes are adjusted, but not the scale. The scale is what is...

IM should adjust scaling factor on 'max fit' function

Max Fit is great (and it works, no issues on the last mm of the scaled object). But the scale factor of the scale menu should be adjusted to the actual scaling factor used by the Max Fit function. Having knowledge of the scale factor helps (makes it possible) to scale related parts accordingly. I do...

Re: First prints

Thanks Derek. White Verbatim ABS has a nice matte beige look and when lighted from inside with the cold light of LED bulbs it turns out to be more like yellow.

Re: First prints

The yellow lamp shade is the PLA that came with the printer, the white one is Verbatim ABS wich turns to a warm yellow color when lighted from the inside with a LED bulb and also prints with a nice texture. The Zuzanna lamp, rack and bins are printed with an ivory PLA, the labels on the bins are cop...

First prints

Here are some of my first prints with the N2+, mostly objects that could not be printed with the other printers I have. The green one is printed on another printer it's just for comparison to the abilities (build area) of the N2. The lamp shades have been to large for the other printers, the rack wi...

Re: raise uk sales

I ordered plate, Buildtak, nozzles, electronic components: a box of spares.
Shipping was $25 from the UK to Germany wich is a regular price for sending a bigger not so heavy package thru Europe.

Re: printer clock / weird gcode timestamps fix

My firmware was 0.6.1.somewhat... (received it last week like that).
Actual firmware has tzdata installed and setting the TZ in the printer together with the automatic time synch does the job.

Re: printer clock / weird gcode timestamps fix

I wasn't aware of this post, I searched the forum for 'clock'... I also did not want to mix up the printers system with files from other distributions / architectures wich could cause errors, that's why I did it with what's available on the R3D distribution. Does your setting via /etc/localtime let ...

printer clock / weird gcode timestamps fix

Update: No need for TZ setting (see below). Don't edit /etc/profile, instead use actual firmware (mine was too old) and adjust timezone in printer setup. Recently there was a discussion in a chat about the printers weird clock settings and I told 'just enable the time synch features and it's done'....

Re: Stopping/Canceling a Print

Having a single queue, serialized command processing I would call the old fashioned way of firmware programming (without wanting to tease someone special to answer that this has been done already better at the age of 4-Bit MCs :)). To be honest, I did not look into firmware source code for about 2 y...

Re: Stopping/Canceling a Print

It's always easier to pull the plug. But why do this?

GCode defines standard commands for this and if the firmware listens to them in the PID loop the GUI can easily stop the heating process and let the firmware do a save shut down (whatever is needed).

Thanks for your suggestion and feedback. We will see how we can optimize this.


This is quite simple: The firmware should accept M0, M1, M112 commands in the PID loop while processing the heatup.
