Re: Update FW... HOW?

I just want to update to 1.1.1.
I see no way to do that and the instructions on the website are meaningless.
So... I plug in a thumbdrive with the file, turn on the N2... then what?

Re: Bad adhesion of Buildtak

Your buildtak problem is probably because your nozzle is a touch too far from the build surface. In other machines this is easily solved by bed leveling in less then second. Unless you mod it yourself, the N2/N2+ bed is factory leveled (a boneheaded design approach which R3D stubbornly refuses to re...

Re: Dual Extruder Ditto printing

I think a while back this was discussed. There are some Marlin branches that support DITTO printing. There lies the problem. The Marlin used on a the Raise 3D is custom and modified to support key functions and the specific motion controller board. I think it would take a bit of effort to port the ...

Re: LCD screen burn in

I thought that only happened on CRTs!? First I've ever heard of an LCD and burn in, but given the machine runs for days on end I guess it makes sense. Is there a brightness setting?

Re: Dual Extruder Ditto printing

Do you mean that use two nozzle two same model at one time? That means the model needs to be really small. Since the offset between two nozzles are only 25mm. Yes that is correct. Yes the objects are limited in size to the distance between the nozzles. For low qty production the splits the cost and...

Dual Extruder Ditto printing

This would be a slick feature for those of us who do contract production work. Basically the way to works (with Sailfish machines) is the dual extruders print at the same time making two objects simultaneously. Of course the object sizes and the relative X axis positioning has to be paid attention t...

Re: electric guitar

Ok, this was the last axe I did. I call it the Herring Strat because the design is from a Keith Herring painting. It feels and plays as nice as a Corona Ca Strat. I've made 7 so far but 3 failed. 2 were before I started using carbon fiber rods for reinforcement. PLA and ABS moves even at room temp. ...

Re: Raise3D N2+, better than SLS :)

I would really doubt any FDM machine could beat an SLS for all use cases. But for sure based on cost the Raise3D N2 and N2+ are hard to beat. However... there's issues, that in our opinion, need to be fixed before either model gets a complete thumbs up from us: 1. The factory set bed is a joke. Make...

Re: Buildtak

Hi, I broke, my building plate because I printed a flat solid part that I couldn't remove from buildtak.

Re: How to change the heat bed to spring leveled by Andy Cohen

One use case ignored by the factory set bed is when the user has more then 1 plate... as well as different kind of plates. Height adjustment via the limit switch screw? Really? Obviously, the Raise3D people never operated their machines the way many of us who print for a living do. I now can pull th...

Re: TPE filament not sticking to anything

Not sure the diff between TPE and TPU. I do ALOT of TPU on my N2. Aquanet works perfectly fine holding the stuff down and letting it go when done. Although I have modified my bed so I can adjust the bed level and height in realtime. If you have not done that yet you do not know just how much more re...

Re: BuildTak works good, if you can cope with it!

or... You can flip the plate and use Aquanet unscented super extra hold at a cost of $2-$3 for a can which will last about as long as a sheet of buildtak and realize what a waste of time Buildtak was for you. Why should I flip the plate, buy chemicals and switch to another treatment of the bed when...

Re: Extruder leaking

Yeah... I found after a nozzle clog tear down that there was a tiny bit of leakage in my V2 as well. You have to be REAL careful to get the nozzle to seat well up against the titanium tube. If your hot block moves at all, then while hit you should ensure the nozzle is reseated correctly. I would hav...

Re: New items in store

Some things went quickly. The N2 build plate was in stock in the US store briefly but by the time I went to order it, it was gone. I did order a couple of the hardened nozzles. Can't wait to try them on some abrasive filaments that I've avoided until now (carbon, glow-in-the-dark, metal-filled, etc...

Re: help on a dual print

Sorry about the blatant plug... Go listen to show #134 of 3D Printing Today.

For that matter... if you listen to #135 he also does a segment o...
