Re: Project: The next heated bed

As written before, the heater is not connected to the 24V= line from the printers internal switched power supply, but directly to 230V~ mains power. So the limited power of the internal supply isn't an issue here.

Displayed height of an object

Normally I'm using Simplify3D as slicer. If I don't utilize the usual continuous printing (layer-by-layer), but sequential printing (object-by-object) I'm getting a weird display of the height already printed. I've made a photo while printing the second of four identical objects: DSC_0642.JPG I'm su...

Re: Project: The next heated bed

A little curious whether our machine can afford a such high power part. Please keep us updated. Want to know working life and whether it does any harm to other parts. Why shouldn't it afford the power? The heater is directly supplied by mains power, which causes an additional 3A current there in my...

Re: what setting for 3d850

Yes, it sounds also very promising to me.
Will get mine from this shop: http://www.hta3d.com
They have 2 brands of 3D850, one of it also on 500g and 300g spools. And the best is, it is very cheap. :)

I have also 3D850 filament on order, hope to receive it soon.
I would start with normal PLA settings, change the temperatures as you mentioned and print a test cube. Then do changes as necessary...

Re: Recommended settings for Simplify3D?

The default settings in S3D are wrong for the N2. You need to change the Toolhead offsets for the X Axis:

Re: Project: The next heated bed

excellent mod. 3 point leveling is best but impossible unless you have such a strong plate, which needs a stronger heater! I also like how you extended the plate foreward, its a shame to waste that front 12 mm of printable area just to have clearance for plate clips. well done It's not extended for...

It's at the bottom side of the heater pad, in the center at the end of the black wire.

Update 15.04.2017:
Currently I'm using 4 paper clamps for fixating the glass plate, which works very well:

Project: The next heated bed

I made again a big modification of the heated bed in my KS N2. If you already read my earlier post of my first modification ( http://forum.raise3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1003 ), you may ask why? Well, here are my reasons: ⋅ The original aluminium plate was far away from being even. In...

Re: automatic tramming/leveling bed

This sounds very interesting. I'm just planning another mod for my heated bed (casted 8mm Aluminium plate and high power silicone pad, switched by SSR) and think about doing this possibly at the same time. I'm just wondering, how did they reach the needed accuracy? The issue I see is, after the firs...

Re: insulating the heater block

I took one with ID 20mm.
The next smaller listed here (14mm) would be too small, but if you find one with maybe 18mm that could be the optimum. However, I'm quite happy with mine...
