Re: Single Wall Hex. Cells - How Small Can I Go?

while i don't concur with Jetguy's postings, i'd try it this way.... You need turn down shells to 1, no infill, disable "check thin wall" and enable "fill Gaps in shells". This leads to a 0.4mm thick single wall. Then you set Extrusion width to 0.5mm and the Extrusion Multiplier ...

Re: Quieting the N2

I have to correct myself here. Not all r3D seem to share the same PSU. My N1 has a SE-450-24 inside. I didn't measure the fan yet, but it looks like a 40 or 60 mm fan inside the top cover. I isolated the mount by using thick O-Rings under the screw head and inbetween bracket and chassis, but did not...

Re: LIN_ADVANCE = better extrusion control

I'd second that, it would be great to have the updated firmware, but honestly, i don't have enough time nor personal computing resources to learn how to compile it myself. Too much on each of those dozens of plates around here. I wouldn't go for it before i feel myself comfortable enough to be not a...

Re: ideaMaker 3.1.0 Release Note

Well, you could use the other slider, right below the layer-slider and see each line in the currently visiible layer one after another.

Re: Quieting the N2

From what i learned here, PSU is the same on all printers. I tend to believe, there has been a change of units coming from the supplier, meaning the first kickstarter machines might have the older version fitted. I have a brand new, spare unit from my old printer lying here. It's from the same suppl...

Re: Ideamaker wrong import STL scaling

Probably it's an comma versus dot error. German language and regional typeset numbers use the comma to define the decimal point in a number, US uses the dot. In US is the comma used to define three digit places before the decimal, in german typeset it's the dot for those things. I see a lot of place...

Re: Quieting the N2

Jetguy, your PSU most likely is the "old" type with one large fan on the upper side, the cover of the PSU, You can blow air effectively through those fan blades and make things moving. Mine is the newer style (SP-480-24) which sports two 40x20 fans on the opposite end to the connectors. An...

Jetguy, please, calm down. Nobody is insulting you or the other knowledge heavy users, which give us all a better machine in the end. I for one am very happy to have you around here, i sure learned more from your contribution than i would have when asking the engineers. And i tend believe my persona...

Re: Travel Speed, First Layer Height, Flowrate Questions

Default Speed means the general speed you want to print at.

And nope, the specific, individual settings of the other speeds are also actual values. Otherwise, i'm quite sure, their values would have been designated in percent of default speed.

Re: Travel Speed, First Layer Height, Flowrate Questions

As i wrote above, flow rate changes the travel speed of the filament, thus changing the amount of material extruded. Feed rate changes the speed of the axis movement of the print head.

Travel speed is defined in the speed section in the layer tab in advanced, where all speeds are set.

Re: Travel Speed, First Layer Height, Flowrate Questions

1. Try to use Z-Hop in the Advanced/Extruder Tab. This setting makes the Z-axis lower upom travel moves by the amount you put in there. After the travel move the Z comes up again to target height and proceeds. But you need to have the rectraction settings in check or you see a blob here and there. 2...

Re: Broken ribbon… again… I think

Jetguy, i'm fully with you. This ribbon cable is obviously a safety concern and shouldn't be adressed by R3D as they handle it right now. If we'd talk about a car, NHTSA in US would make R3D come up with a recall to retrofit all their products. Same goes for european countries and i'm quite sure eve...

Re: Quieting the N2

Great solution, congrats !!!


I wish, i had your problem, because that's would give something i could do about, but my printer's loudest part is the fan inside the PSU.
