Re: Just Released N2 Pro

Hey, also, I missed this but it's good question. The price between the N2 Dual and the Pro2 is roughly $1k ($2999 VS $3999) The difference on the N2 Plus VS Pro2 Plus is more like $3899 VS $5999 a difference of $2.1k For a buyer at this exact second, the Pro2 makes sense, in fact a good deal. The P...

Re: Just Released N2 Pro

I hope raise3d will sell the print heads and the new bed. I tried buying some dglass3d auto raise heads but they said they no longer mfg the 1.75 sized unit nor had any left even in just parts. I've been thinking about doing the mod someone on here did for as an overkill bed upgrade. I've tried sev...

Re: Is it recommended to put the filament back to the sealed bag after each use?

The recommendation isn't based upon the printer manufacturers. Its to do with different types of material can absorb moisture and it negatively affects print quality. PLA support material is really bad about absorbing moisture. From what I've read its recommended to buy PLA in small batches as well....

Re: What buildplate is commonly used?

I had no issues with the stock Buildtak but just installed some Geckotek EZ-Stik Hot. Both stick very good only difference I noticed so far is it seems the pieces release easier off the Geckotek. I haven't printed a tall piece on the Geckotek to test if the part would break loose before completion. ...

Re: Bearing play

I was wanting to use Maraging Steel which has a different components than mild steel. So to clarify are you saying that still won't make a difference and the rod will deflect the same? To go extreme since the size is the same it would deflect the exact same between Aluminum and Titanium if we applie...

Re: Bearing play

Can someone at Raise3D specify what type of steel was used for the rods. I'm exhibiting excessive play in the carriage assembly as well. I do have the cast vs cnc carriage assembly. Do you guys offer the cad file for the newer CNC carriage? Only reason I ask is I purchased 2 of the auto lift Hotends...

Re: Project: The next heated bed

I'm curious if you have cracks after printing. On an article I read it stated that if you can't heat the bed up to 130C your parts are likely going to crack. The Raise3D was one of the tested printers. I just ordered a sheet of build surface from Geckotek. We will see how it works vs Buildtak. I was...

Re: Project: The next heated bed

Awesome mod. I'm wanting to print polycarbonate and seems you want at least 130C to do that. Maybe I'm blind and I didn't see it but whats the max stable bed temp you can hit with this. I was looking at bed heaters from Keenovo as they seem pretty powerful beds and they seem to have a well diversifi...

Re: Dual Extruder with Autolifting Nozzles

If anyone's interested I did a check and it only eats up 3/16" of print volume. Only reason I'm interested is in all the research I did for buying a printer the main reason I got this one was build volume. From all the reviews I've watched on youtube there's been alot of complaints about print ...

Re: Dual Extruder with Autolifting Nozzles

I was actually looking at those. Jetguy why would it requiring additional wiring? Then it has a heating element, thermocoupler and a fan unless I'm mistaken so does the Raise3d. They are mechanical actuated threw the retraction of the filament. To be honest I've been traveling and haven't had a chan...

Re: Shifting Forward and Backwards.

Is part of the QOS to drop network connections all together when its either printing or running a code process? I've found anything over 10mb its pretty much useless to try and use the network. Are you implying WIFI is the favored Network mode on this unit or is the 1mb speeds the same on hardwire a...

Re: Shifting Forward and Backwards.

I know this is an older post but I just purchased a Raise3d N2 plus 3d printer. I've read through several of the forum topics. I had thought about doing the driver mod but a statement that jetguy made about it only being an 8 bit AVR anyway got me wondering. Would some of us that like customizing th...
