Re: BTSN2 Build Plate for Raise3D N2 Printers

I think the issue is actually the print bed or extruder sag. With the glass the corners are a lot lower than the middle. Almost 2mm lower. With the BTSN2 plate, the difference is much less obvious but it's still there. I'm reading through lots of threads on bed leveling. I'll do some more testing an...

Re: BTSN2 Build Plate for Raise3D N2 Printers

Got my new plate the other day and I love it so far. My glass plates are not even remotely level and this one is dead flat. PLA pops off like a dream. I feel dumb for ordering 2 extra glass plates with my printer. Doh! Michael, I usually print in ABS so I'm looking forward to the results of your tes...

Re: Filament monitor

Thanks for the feedback. I'm not too keen on hacking firmware. I'll brainstorm other solutions. I'm going to test the "resume on power outage" function. I think a pretty simple solution could be made to cut the power to the printer when the filament runs out. That would suit my needs prett...

Re: Printing with the Right Extruder (as primary)

Thanks! That's super helpful. I was opening the top and swapping out the fan cover for PLA but I did also assume you could easily switch back and forth in the slicer software. You're also right that it's not such a big deal to unload and re-load to switch filament, especially given the amount of oth...

Printing with the Right Extruder (as primary)

I got the dual extruder model of the N2+ with the idea that I could run ABS in the left nozzle and PLA in the right and just switch between the two in the software. So far, I have not been able to set the right (PLA) nozzle as the primary one. I set the filament type in each extruder in Ideamaker an...

Re: Filament monitor

Vicky,

Is there any pin out documentation available on how we can connect basic end of filament detector to the circuit board? Maybe there is already a pin header that will pause the print job?

Universal Camera Mount

Hi, I recently designed a mount for webcams and Go-Pros that use standard camera mounts. I'm using a Microsoft Lifecam Studio via usb and accessed using BlueIris software. It works perfectly and lets me view the printer (as well as my outdoor ip cameras) in a web browser or on any of my mobile devic...

Re: BTSN2 Build Plate for Raise3D N2 Printers

Hi Michael, I'm not able to PM you but I ordered a build plate today and I'm just wondering if you're still trying to unload those poorly cut plates. I'd be happy to have one of those added to my order if can get in touch with me. Name on order: Mark Petzold Hi Folks, we have a few build plates that...

Re: Off premises access, IM to printer

I just got my N2+ and also have it on a wifi plug (Belkin wemo). I connected it to IFTTT so if the Nest Protect smoke detector in the room detects smoke, it'll shut off the power. Not foolproof, but should react to an overheated printer fairly quickly. PS: I also use Teamviewer for remote access and...
