Re: Hot Glue Dripping for Connectors (silicone)

We would like to find the root cause, not apply patchwork fixes to the issue. mbb.mech, Please submit a ticket to this site and provide the purchase date on the machine and serial ...

Re: What is the ideal nozzle to bed distance?

Typically I like to have over 1mm of squish on the first line for PLA, less for ABS and others. See picture for reference.

Re: ULTEM9085

This is something I am considering testing in our office soon. It came to my attention recently as we can hit the minimum temps necessary to print. However I would caution that my plan would knock anyone else well outside of warranty. Going down the path of Ultem is one without warranty.

Re: PolyFlex & Nylon

I faced the same problem too. I have tried loading the flexible filament twice but both the times the filament got stuck in the feeder gear. I had to remove the front cover and pull out the filament stuck. I have a raise 3d n2 plus printer. Has anyone printed with flexible filament using the same m...

Re: Two different sized nozzles: Feature request

This one is still high on the list, I have a few users calling in asking for it as well. It is not a simple thing to just add in and it will take us time to do so.

Re: Cannot print anything

Hi KB, I would recommend to begin by setting the height of the primary extruder, once that is set, loosen the set screws holding the secondary head in place and move the whole hotend up. If it only moved 200µm you will be good to go, more is better but it should not have more of an effect. You could...

Re: Stops extruding after first Shell

Hi Game, In this case I would not recommend using the guide tubes as all that will do is cause more resistance in the feed system compounding on the stretching that could occur. While Raise does prefer Polymakers PolyFlex as the standard flex material most others are still compatible. This does not ...

Re: printing at 10 µm layer. .01mm

You don't need to change speed unless you are trying to just make the print take forever. Also, lower layer height is less plastic per layer, no reason to change temps. So basically just change layer height, cross your fingers and wait forever for that print to finish. It's a simple fact every laye...

Re: Not printing in the centre

That is the printers true center of build area, the glass plate extends further because the left nozzle is the primary nozzle. The full build area of the left and right is 12 inches, the right is offset from the left thus it will need a different center point. The print center is also forward becaus...

Re: My 2 Cents

The motor over heating could be a sign of the voltage being set too high on the stepper driver.

Here is the lube we spoke about over the phone, please apply this to the rails and move the print head around while the motors are disabled.

Re: Can't use full bed, software settings over-ridden???

Swap to an alternative like Purple washable glue. Hairspray is the more annoying method that works as well as glue.

There is no need to flip the N2+ on its side. The two connections of the USB cable are from the Main board and the front display.

Travel speed down to about 50mm/s. You may also want to up retraction a touch since at that heat and that speed you will ge...
