Re: Sudden Death of N2 - Support assistance requested

That type of switched socket is standard to have a fuse. It is a part that pulls out in between the switch and where the power cord plugs in.

Re: Sudden Death of N2 - Support assistance requested

Also there is a fuse in the power socket as well. btw. If that went out, the printer would not get power.

Re: L Nozzle Default Flow Rate 94

no, I am telling you how the Filament setting for Flow Rate works in Ideamaker. it is how raise3d designed. On your Filament settings, Flow Rate determines the default extrusion multiplier or flow rate of that filament, the parameters of the slicing profiles are on top of the flow rate set on the fi...

Re: L Nozzle Default Flow Rate 94

flow rate for ideamaker is also known as extrusion multiplier to other slicers.

Re: Reclaim lost build area

the other option is to use thermal pads. however to note, the rear clips are screwed into the heated build plate. if you go to remove them, make sure the printer is off and unplugged. shorting out the bed is a costly mistake. one that I have had to experience with my printer.

Re: Is there a way to send G-code manually in ideamaker

you can create a print file that contains a single gcode line and save it to the printer.

Re: Be aware - Actual buildplate temp lower than temp setting

bed adhesion is far more complicated then just reaching a target temperature. your surface needs to be level or the printer has to have sensors to compensate for it not being level. When you heat metal, it bends and warps. the more you heat it, the more it bends and warps. using clips to keep the gl...

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

I was printed ePC with the new hotend. then I went to print with Polysmooth. I found the polysmooth needed the hotend cleaned after using the ePC since ePC prints at a much higher temperature. residue from the ePC was damaging the polysmooth as it extruded. I think i sorta clogged the hotend because...

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

I am wondering about the PTFE tube. I actually found that here is space between the adapter and the other tube that things might get caught on. Not sure if you can flare the top of the adapter.

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

If you hook the wires in backwards, it will read the temperature backwards and cause the error.

Re: Recompiling firmware to adjust bed size

we don't use the bootloader at all. What are you trying to adjust on the bed size? increase it? decrease it? The bed may be physically bigger then the 305 by 305 size. the X and Y sizes are more to detail the size limitations of where the print head can reach. To increase the size of the bed, you wo...

Re: Improvements by using TMC2130 driver.

interesting. I replaced all my steppers with Panucatt SureStepr SD6128 Stepper driver myself. I use them on my trinus as well, which I replaced the controller with the Panucatt Azteeg X5 GT 32bit Motion Controller. I'm not even sure that printer makes any noticeable noise at all with the digipot ver...

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

it's so much fun to have the cooling unit crash into the front of the printer while homing. lol

making the fan stand vertical. it will be mounted to the right side. I just hope it fits.

the plus side is I think the left side would allow for a bed leveling sensor to be mounted.

Re: E3D v6 Adaptor

finally converted over but I need to redesign the filament cooling fan. It is hitting the Z endstop stopper.
going to place a single blower fan centered between the hotends.


need to make sure the filament is calibrated for this new hotend first though.
