Next release of software?

Hi. Just wonder when we can expect updated software and firmware?
Do you have a fixed release cycle for this? Once a month? Every three months?
Seams like the ideamaker is falling a bit behind the competition right now regarding to features.
Just curious.

Re: psu fan making some noise

I have an N1, but I think the PSU is the same. My PSU fan was noisy out-of-the-box, not a warranty claim, but still loud enough to be annoying. I wanted to replace it with a quiet 60mm fan for PC's, but generally all the quiet fans have too low an airflow. I found an 80mm quiet fan which was the sa...

Re: Automatic pin/hole connections

Even if it was just as alignment marks for gluing the parts together correctly that would be a nice addition. I can see how this request could be useful.

Raise3D-printers compatible with Astroprint?

Hi. I wonder if the Astroprint box http://www.astroprint.com is compatible with the Raise3D-printers. Since there are now way to connect to the printer via internet to show the status screen. The Astroprint box seems like a god alternative to use to monitor the printer, temperatures, progress and so...

Re: Layer width?

Is there a correlation between layer height and layer width. If I widen the layer width. Does one have to increase the layer height as well?

Re: Layer width?

Thanks. When I tried vase mode I got a very thin print. It held up quite well but the base broke free. And were easy to deform. And I tried with some other settings (that I don't remember). But he nozzle kept hitting the print. It extruded more plastic but the layers got to high.

Layer width?

If I print in vase mode. Is it possible to print with bigger layer width? And what settings does one need to change? I gave it a try when I bought the printer but I remember that the print head hit the prints. Thought I would make sure what to change before trying again.

Re: Make it impossible to upload print with wrong settings.

Ok. But the slicer could easily insert a line with the dimensions of the slicer model. That the firmware could read. Hopefully this will be better in the future.

Re: Make it impossible to upload print with wrong settings.

Ok. But surely the printer firmware could be smart enough to not start a print if the print is to large for the build volume? Or outside the build volume?

Re: Guiding tubes rubbing against top cover

yes. I have just recently started printing in ABS with the top cover on. And I am a little sad to see the plastic top cover getting scratched up. And it also sounds bad. A taller top cover would take care of that.

Re: Make it impossible to upload print with wrong settings.

Normally, it won't do harm to your N1 cause there have movement limit, so no matter how big the model is or how much it is off the plate, it will only reach to 205mm. But in this case it really could have done som harm. The last centimeters of the print. That didn't fit on the print bed. Got printe...

Make it impossible to upload print with wrong settings.

Had big problems printing yesterday and today due to the fact that my IdeaMaker software were incorrectly set to the N2 printer in the printer settings.
A warning would have be nice when uploading the print to my N1 printer.
That would have saved me a lot of trouble.

Re: Print not centered on printbed. Filament piles up at print bed edge.

And the solution: don't be stupid! I checked all my settings. And I had chosen the wrong printer. I hade selected the N2 and not the N1. :(. Started a new print and now it seems to work. Sorry for taking up your time.

Print not centered on printbed. Filament piles up at print bed edge.

Had some problems yesterday. Didn't know what to make of it. Printed another model today. And it failed really good. Printed from latest idea maker version. Model rotated and downscaled in ideamaker. The print isn't centered on the build plate. A few centimetres of the print, at the right edge, gets...

Re: ideaMaker Duplicate

Yes. In short. option-drag makes a duplicate that you can drag in any direction.
Option-shift-drag makes a duplicate that you only can drag in straight lines.

About the shortcut, I didn't fully get your meaning about "duplicate and move in a straight angle". Would you like to explain more? I will try. In graphics app like illustrator and indesign. When option(alt)-dragging an object. You will get a copy. And you are free to move the duplicate i...
