Printing in TPU

aka NinjaFlex. The pic is with Sainsmart TPU. The N2 with V2 prints it real nice. Make it hotter... 230C, downward fan at about 70%, hbp at 40C and print speed down to 20mm/s. Travel speed down to about 50mm/s. You may also want to up retraction a touch since at that heat and that speed you will get...

Re: Stopping/Canceling a Print

Andy, what do you mean with "goes bye bye" ? When i cancel a print during warm up (yes this happens a lot especially since Duplicate does not duplicate the extruder temp settings) it actually puts that request in the queue meaning i would have to wait till its heated up and sometimes prin...

Re: Initial Tuning

The rippling could easily be from the infill. Print one with no top and no infill. An empty box.

Re: Can there be such a thing as TOO MUCH cooling in the heatbreak?

Yes, having the filament go soft before going into the nozzle is a bad thing. But is the result of TOO LITTLE cooling. What I'm asking about is if it is possible to have TOO MUCH cooling. I usually share my designs and I intend to share this one as well. But the thing is I like to test everything b...

Re: Two Shows in May and related Raisers Meet-up

Too bad... Press day and school day for Maker Fair is on Friday PM. Sat & Sun are way too crowded for getting any kind of quality time with anyone there. The San Mateo MF is so over booked with people and with an ever shrinking array of things to see that it is quite intolerable. Make sure you h...

Re: Stopping/Canceling a Print

You can go to 'settings' and then restart the printer. Usually it is faster than waiting for it to heat up. Currently, we can't change this. The printer is running the command to heat up, until it reaches the set point, it will not process the pause/cancel command. I expected this. But I do not und...

Stopping/Canceling a Print

While the object is printing the Cancel button works fine... However, if you try to cancel a print during initial warmup my N2 goes bye bye until I reboot it. Why would I want to cancel so early? It happens a lot. I see that the printer is going to the wrong temp because i changed the material or I ...

Re: Time Est?

A more direct question may be... Exactly what is the "Time Est"? It's obviously not time... More likely it is a function of the number of lines of gcode relative to the amount of time per line performed... As the print gets further and further along it has more relative usefulness, but at ...

Re: Shifting Forward and Backwards.

Nuthin like a detailed Jetguy post. The dual N2/N2+ have less then optimal downward cooling yet increased carriage mass.Conflicting requirements to me is like chewing aluminum foil. REAL bad. My fear has always been that the quiet mode for the drivers selected by R3D would cause this. As such I run ...

Keep in mind that the longer time goes by before you resume the less likely the resume location will be unnoticeable.

Re: new printers leaving the factory

Every printer leaving the factory is with the latest version of firmware at that time. However, due to the long sea shipping time, when the printer arrives, we may release a newer version of firmware and then you need to update. I think the OP is wondering about whether or not N2s will be sold now ...

Re: Layer fan did not turn on when resuming print after power loss

It was either one of my Rep2s or the CloneR1. I can't recall. Bridge Nylon. Note the ceramic insulation tape on top where it's close to the hot block.

Re: V2 Hot End Information and Q&A

So far, so very good. It powered though toolpaths which were guaranteed backwash clogs in V1. It's a 10 hour print and I'm feeling good about it completing. Prototype Supply, Black PLA using the same profile in Simplify3D that I used with V1. Looking good! The 15 hour print printed without an extru...

Re: Layer fan did not turn on when resuming print after power loss

Hi Andy, Every single-extrude printer has a downward, gcode controllable fan for cooling model, not only on N1, but also N2 and N2 Plus. Interesting. It looks like it is a box fan pointing directly downward which in turn could easily wash back upward. Why not also have something on the dual? I adde...
