Re: BTSN2 Build Plate for Raise3D N2 Printers

How "good" is the heat transfer? Comparable to those silicone pads?

Re: Isolation tube leak

The angle of the heat sink itself isn't important, what is important is whether your isolation tube became unscrewed from the block, and if that's the reason you have a leak.

Re: Precision adjusting dual nozzle height - solved

But the only time you're taking out the hot end, you'll be taking it apart, which means when you reassemble it, the OAL length will be different, so indexing at the isolation tube will lead to a nozzle height imbalance.
Unless I'm missing something?

There's a 20mm cube on the use stick that came with your printer. And thingiverse has a ton of different test objects to print

Re: Filament Swap procedure

Yup. That's exactly what I did and it works perfectly. I'd do it every time I take apart the hot end for peace of mind

Re: How to level bed for N2?

Your calibration cubes. I'd do both single/double/triple wall and completely solid. Also run multiple on the same print after you get a single cube done well. Do them in different areas of the plate as that will help you notice if you're way off level. I also scaled the cubes on some tests to be muc...

Re: How to level bed for N2?

Have you tried opening a tech support ticket? Its a little time consuming, and you go through some basic steps in the beginning, but they really helped me through quite a few issues. That print you're trying to do on your other thread looks like it would be difficult regardless. very wide with small...

Re: Precision adjusting dual nozzle height - solved

You'd want to index at least 3 points if you're hoping for a sort of "fire and forget" solution. And even then I think you'll still want to use a calibration block or similarly flat object under the nozzles.

Re: Project Bondtech Extruder

Really? I assumed it was for dual, because of the name.

So essentially ideamaker becomes single extruder only... Well at least I have some time to ponder before it arrives.

Re: Project Bondtech Extruder

Finally pulled the trigger on the kit plus the qr for the Bowden.

I'm assuming running jetguy's firmware is the way to go if I'd like to still use ideamaker as well? Added bonus for the part cooling fan.

Re: PLA not sticking to build plate

I mean it looks like it, but I'm no expert by any means. You should really monitor the first couple layers though to see if it's sticking to the bed well. Have you tried a smaller version of the print? Or just a small portion of it?

Re: One expensive pig

Pla also prints this style better when insulated, and apparently the new fan ducts help cooking even more. When I'm printing PLA I like to have a large fan pointing at the top of the open printer (I use gluestick for bed adhesion), otherwise it looks like plenty of opportunity for upward curls to ge...

Re: Precision adjusting dual nozzle height - solved

You basically created your own swivel tip set screw. Nice. I'll have to get some to add in there.

Do you know the threads by any chance? M4 and M3 would be my guess.

Re: Dual extruder offset changed!

Yes. When you think about it, it can't be perfect. If there's enough tolerance to remove the hot end, there's enough tolerance to mess with the offset. I think I posted about this a while back. I calibrate with an object that's basically a small cube nested inside of a larger box, and made adjustmen...

Re: PLA not sticking to build plate

1.) yes. I was probably more confused than you at first. Look for YouTube videos on gluestick on the print bed. Most people do it on glass, I also do it directly on the buildtak, it doesn't really make a difference for me. 2.) I slide a feeler gauge under the print to release it, then I can go right...

Re: Need some help understanding this print problem

You try printing in ideamaker and compare settings? It does look like the extrusion multiplier is an issue. 100 on S3d is perfect for PLA for me, I have to dial it back considerably for XT.

I print PolyMax at around 200 on the left extruder, and 60mm/s on .1mm layers.
