Re: So finally my N1 printer found it's home!

Good benchys, but like those I did on my N2, ringing is evident. Unfair comparing it to a print off the CloneR1. Ringing is not well controlled from what I'm seeing on my N2. UM style gantry with a lot of mass in a direct drive extruder. It is what it is. Slowing it down does not help all that much...

Re: Why so cheap?

In this country lack of profit = no longevity. If you love your Raise3D machine then you want them to stick around.

My understanding is they have an investor. The ball is rolling. Why not try to show some profit? Unless the motivation is undercut the mkt?

Re: Can you make it possible to print different layer thickness?

Yep, S3D can use separate settings for infill and out shell. That will help with you in some kind of situation, but not all the mind. Actually in my mind the ultimate solution will be an automatic layer height recognition based on the slope. So slicer can adjust the layer height automatically based...

Why so cheap?

I am really curious. TAM just raised the price of the Type 1 to over $4K. The Fusion F306 is over $4000. The Wolf3D is also over $4K. These machines are all larger format Prosumer machines. The casing and Z height methods in the Raise3D machines are superior. The UI front panel and LAN interface is ...

Re: Sleep Mode

Whoops! I did not realize that your mod used the gcode controlled power port I use for the downward fan. IMO the downward fan is substantially more important then a temp controlled extruder fan... by a lot! I won't be doing that mod!

Re: Can you make it possible to print different layer thickness?

What if the layer thickness of the supporter is print to 0.3mm, and the layer thickness of the object is print to 0.1mm? Or The thickness of the infill and the inner shell is 0.2mm, but what about if the thickness of the outer shell is 0.01mm? S3D can do this? It can if it is a multiple... Say it w...

Re: Print for huge telescope mirror prototype

Andy, I think that its a double mold system: you print out a wedge that is a "positive" matching the shape of 1/6 of your mirror. THen you make a silicone mold of that wedge print (the first negative) and use that to make 6 plaster positives. Then you clean up and assemble the plaster pos...

Re: Can you make it possible to print different layer thickness?

I mean different layer thickness in one object. Again, S3D can do that. All the settings you can make for slicing an object can be set per the specific layer. Layer height, temps, fan control, infill, speed, retraction, etc, etc... It can also print every other layer for support and/or infill so it...

So they use your print to make a mold for the very soft material that they use for the mirror?

John@Raise3D wrote:What he wants is actually more than this. He wants from 0 to 10mm, support at 0.25mm a layer and shell at 0.05mm per layer. Even S3D can't do this I think...

S3D can do that. The ability to make multiple "processes" is S3D biggest differentiator. Worth every penny.

Re: Sleep Mode

It puts all fans? Or just the extruder fan? I'd like the whole thing to power down, like my MakerBots do... Don't know if that's too much to ask for? The N2/N2+s as delivered currently use the same fan(s) for extruder and downward cooling. No idea what is in the N1. Adding a separate downward fan i...

Re: Acceleration Settings

It works. I set M201 X 200 Y 200 in the start script and I am printing an object where ringing is an issue. I can see the speed ramp up then slow down in shorter toolpath runs. I set it to print, should be done by morning. We'll see how it does!

Re: Acceleration Settings


So... can I correctly assume that the current default setting for acc in the N2 is X 1000 and Y 1000?
