Re: LIN_ADVANCE = better extrusion control

Just curious if anyone has had an issue where it appears your way under extruding to the point its not even extruding at all. I've found when I go to unload and load filament that the bondtech motors are turning super slow. So far the resolve for me has been go in and change estep from 432 to someth...

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

btw is that a push pull fan configuration on your cooling duct? Yes it is. I printed it with Peek for higher temps but since I had the loose head never used it. My initial plan was to cut a piece of Thermo-Tec barrier or ZircoFlex to divert the heat that I've used for some race engine applications....

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

Do any of your adapter blocks seem excessively loose thread wise. I purchased 2 of these adapter blocks, 2 titanium e3d breaks and 2 copper e3d blocks. Between the copper block and the titanium break its super solid and tight but between the adapter block and the titanium break its loose. Anyway som...

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

Actually no, there is zero current. That's the thing to understand, resistance affects current, not voltage. A 1 meg resistor to a voltage, is still the exact same voltage at both sides. The ADC inputs of the mega2560 processor at the mainboard are extremely high impedance. Basically you are chargi...

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

Look, I know that you think you are doing the right thing, using a meter to calibrate, but put the meter down, and worry about other things. You are talking 7C here. you can swear all day what you measured, a thermocouple is accurate to +-3C. So if one read high and one read low, one was internal i...

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

So i recently did this upgrade with titanium heatbreak and E3D copper block on both heads. I purchased all other parts through Filastruder including 2 new Type K Thermocouple cartridges. I assumed I'd have to do some form of calibration so I thought i'd check with a known good temp tool. I have Fiel...

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: 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...

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...

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

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...
