Re: Tray Size

Can you print the part in two or more pieces? You can bond the pieces together after - not sure what the part is for or if it will be under any stresses. You can print in ABS and solvent weld them with just acetone.

Re: Preparing to swap nozzle - Any last minute advice?

I highly advise torquing the nozzles over the highest temp you ever plan on printing. If you torque them at room temp - even really tight they can come loose - has happened to me. here's what I do: remove hot ends from carriage use Raise instructions for gapping new nozzle but gap to 0.25 - tighten ...

Re: Dollop of rubbish at start of print

The reason I added that little rise to 5mm is that there is often a bit of ooze from the warm up - this sticks to the bed during the Z axis zero command and then the nozzle lifts up away from it... most of the time. You could just as well leave it out - you have to watch the whole process, think abo...

This is a good resource - I assume the Pro2 uses the same gcode interpretation as Marlin since the N series printers use Marlin - could be wrong but haven't noticed any differences yet: http://marlinfw.org/meta/gcode/ I keep text files of useful gcode scripts that I use for different printers - that...

Re: Fan Upgrade

Instead of using the Raise clamp why don't you eliminate it and just incorporate a 6mm ID x 4-5mm high tube with set screw into your design - that would make the whole thing shorter and give you even fewer places for things to get loose out of alignment etc. The Raise clamp thing has always baffled ...

Re: My Pro2 shipped with two different nozzle sizes??

Just curious how much glow filament you put through that nozzle - it's pretty trashed. You should get one of the 3dSolex ruby nozzles for that stuff.

Just take the socks off - you should be able to get a look.

Glow in the dark filament is pretty bad - not as bad as carbon or glass filled though...

Re: My Pro2 shipped with two different nozzle sizes??

Why don't you check the stamps on the nozzles - be weird if the Right nozzle was worn out unless you're using that one exclusively.

Try the blower mod - works like it was meant to - even with tiny heat sinks and a servo in the way.

No, it's thermocouple https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermocouple
Raise3D and users made up this thing that doesn't exist called a thermocoupler.


Sarcasm. I know what a thermocouple is - I've made hundreds of them.

Re: Printing above 250°...

Don't forget you will ned to either raise the Z adjustment mechanism at least 20mm depending on your adapter (another reason to machine it - save space) or lower the Z end stop switch.

Re: Printing above 250°...

Thanks for the tip, I will probably use the e3d thermistors when I change out the hot ends. I have made an adapter for the mosquito, which I plan to print. Have you printed yours or have you made it in another way? If the heat dissapation is as good as you say it is I think I could get away with us...

Re: Printing above 250°...

You will need to have an adapter machined - the tolerances are too tight for FDM and the part will need to be pretty strong.

Re: Fan Upgrade

Not sure what you mean by the mosquito not being rigid? It's way more rigid than the e3D - you can torque nozzles without supporting the block. If you did this with any other hot end you'd snap the heat break.

Re: Fan Upgrade

That's cool but the longer the whole thing is the greater the force moments are from movement of the heavy block - keeping the block as close to the cross bars as possible is more important IMO. I want to make a new heat sink for the mosquito that eliminates the Raise clamp and just uses a set screw...

Re: Fan Upgrade

No I use the Slice ones - the Raise thermocouples and heaters are way too long. You will need a new K type thermocouple under 23mm in length and 3mm in diameter. - I can make them for you if you want.

You need to rotate one hotend 180° so they clear each other - see pic in previous post.

Re: Fan Upgrade

Curious how you're attaching yours to the nozzle lifting shaft - I basically copied Raise's solution and just clamped onto the existing shaft - not ideal but I didn't want to take the whole lifting mechanism apart. BTW they just barely clear each other in this configuration - the clearance is better...

Mesh bed leveling would eliminate this issue but that concept seems to have evaded Raise engineers.
