Re: Project Bondtech Extruder

There is no need to worry about the stepper motors. Otherwise, what do you think would happen with the motors if you print high temperature materials like ABS or PC in a closed chamber? Btw., I'm also using a little bit higher reference voltage for the motors, as I realized it is more robust regard...

Re: Project Bondtech Extruder

I was testing long print with right bowden extruder and it clogged in the middle on the print. I've checked and it seems that either PLA melted in the motor gear or somehow deformed, hard to say. After that I've tried to print more and had issues that it starts to print but then it does not seem to ...

Re: Project Bondtech Extruder

I don't have much luck with right bowden extruder, it does not seem enough of force to push filament well enough, so it always clogs inside of the nozzle. What filament, temp, speed ect do you use? I have not printed alot with bowden side but when i have it works ok. What voltage do you use for you...

Re: Project Bondtech Extruder

Installation went smooth and fast. The only issue was same as GJohns had and after a bit of trying to understand his solution, I was able to figure it out and now good to go. Glad to finally get rid of very problematic original Raise3D filament feeding system, hopefully it will work well so I can sw...

Re: Different print quality between two printers

I believe you have found that even with the same color, roll to roll, filament changes. This is especially common with different colors with PLA. EVEN WORSE - the rolls take up moisture over time so the same spool changes with time! Its indeed a total PITA. It is HDGlass (PETG?) I mean that I've ti...

Re: Different print quality between two printers

I've used support for both, the main difference you can see is that black has straight lines and red one has a mess. This surface is what I get on top of support.
Bed is leveled on both and proper distance.

Different print quality between two printers

I'm printing same model with the same gcode on two N2 with the same sized 0.4mm nozzle and nozzles are 100% brand new. Material is the same just different colors. I'm confident that if I will use same roll on both machines it won't change anything. I'm getting different results. One is perfect and a...

Re: Filament not feeding

From my recent experience I'd suggest to change nozzle to the new one made by micro-swiss which Raise3d sells on their website. Stock nozzle is very bad, made from soft material and might be easily deformed and clogged. My other observations about clogging were that it is actually due to filament e...

Re: Wifi issues - need to restart printer

When it is connected it can stay connected forever, but after shutdown wifi can come back on automatically or can stay off , this behavior is random and happens in 50% of cases. If it won't connect automatically then I have to reboot it up to 3 times before it will finally connect automatically.

Re: Wifi issues - need to restart printer

I have N2. I think that sometimes it does not see networks at all, but other times it sees networks and can connect to them but does not do autoconnect, but after several consequent reboot it auto connects to wifi. The behavior is kind of random, so some times it picks up wifi right away but other t...

Re: Wifi issues - need to restart printer

How do I open this box?

Also it seems like it can see wifi networks, it just does not autoconnect.

Wifi issues - need to restart printer

After printer boots up it does not always initialize wifi, so it does not see any wifi networks at all and I have to reboot it couple of times before it will start working.
Does anybody else experience this issue? Is there a fix?

Re: N2 filament feeder chews semiflex / tpu when loading

I've been experimenting with it for relatively very long time already, finally able to print something, so here are my findings: 1. Putting gear too close to the wheel does not help but makes things worse, so it is a challenge to find right balance when it can drag filament but does not push too too...

Re: Nozzle clogging issue

The problem is that this place is getting clogged too quickly and too often, it can even happen after one print and changing filament is in 80% an issue. I do have other printers and they need cleaning but after a lot of work, sometimes half a year. So this is something which is driving me crazy, be...

Re: Nozzle clogging issue

Thanks for cleaning tips. My guess is that issue with clogging is caused by expansion of the filament inside of cold end (forgive me if I use wrong terminology, I'm referring to the part before nozzle) which then can't be pushed into the nozzle. There is something wrong there, probably related to de...

Nozzle clogging issue

It seems that stock nozzle is getting clogged extremely easily and it happens just after a few prints and after filament change.

What is wrong with it? What can be done to improve?
