Re: N2 filament feeder chews semiflex / tpu when loading

Filament was curling, so I've figured that it got clogged. Yes, I've heated nozzle and used thin needle, the same way I've done for my other nozzles, I've just gently scratched holes with thin side of the needle and then I've noticed that it goes through the hole. I have stock nozzle which I believe...

Re: N2 filament feeder chews semiflex / tpu when loading

Yes, I did. But now I've broken nozzle, it seems like it is made from such a soft material, which I never seen before, that I've tried to clean, which I thought was a clogged nozzle, and needle went right through the hole and effectively made it 1mm, now filament goes through it very well :) but qua...

Re: N2 filament feeder chews semiflex / tpu when loading

I've experimented with this issue for the last few days and there seems to be some kind of fundamental flaw with N2 extruder, so here are my observations: If I move gear closer to the wheel and more to the bottom, then it can push filament better and does not seem to spin filament around the gear an...

I already saw it, but I'm not sure yet if I want to spend another $200 for a new extruder, also second extruder seems to become bowden type with this solution.

Re: N2 filament feeder chews semiflex / tpu when loading

I've adjusted distance between gear and wheel and it did not help. I think issue is that gap between feeder cover and gear is too big, so flexible filament find easier place where to go. I don't think that it is correct behavior for filament to create a jam if it is hard for it to exit from extruder...

N2 filament feeder chews semiflex / tpu when loading

N2 filament feeder has a bad tendency to chew flexible filament when I load it, it starts to extrude a little bit and seems like because of high speed and some design flaw of the feeder filament goes around feeder's gear and then it is very hard to get it out. On unload it makes a knot. Is there a w...

Re: How to turn off nozzle fan when not in use?

Cool, thanks for sharing, although it sucks that N2 does not have this obvious feature by default, even my cheap printer has it :)

How to turn off nozzle fan when not in use?

I've noticed that nozzle fans are always on and never go off even when printer is just idling. On my other printer fans are on only when needed.

I've checked LCD screen and it is set fans to 0, but they are still running, so I was wondering if there is a way to turn them off?

Re: DONE button causes issues - PLEASE FIX

I think that probably I didn't explain the problem I have well enough. I've attached screenshot of IdeaMaker print controlling app (or what it is called), just after print has finished. As you can see it tells me to remove my model and allows me to re-print previous job, but when I click Back link i...

Re: DONE button causes issues - PLEASE FIX

Safety makes sense, the issue is that this feature presents itself as a bug from the ideamaker side, because you can still quickly click on menu items before dialog is present. It can be much more user friendly if it will present a dialog asking to confirm that previous part has been removed from th...

Re: DONE button causes issues - PLEASE FIX

Nothing stops me from hitting DONE button without removing parts. Unless there is a block detection sensor this dialog won't help to prevent damage, but to me as user it causes issues. I constantly find myself forgetting to hit done button and running back to my office and then going back to where p...

I have it on the floor and take model from the top and prefer to start print job from my computer but program does not allow to do anything until you will hit the bottom on the printe...

Why print result with Simplify3D is much better than with IdeaMaker?

I'm trying to print gcode file for Semiflex generated by IdeaMaker and Simplify3D, as I understand with the same or almost the same settings. But results I'm getting are so much different, that print from Simplify3D is almost perfect and print from IdeaMaker generated file has multiple issues: 1. Lo...
