Re: Pantalla raise3d pro 2 plus

Yendo más lejos, realmente debería abrir un ticket de la mesa de ayuda en esta impresora. Este tipo de falla es una falla electrónica de hardware y a menudo requiere un reemplazo completo. La única forma en que sucederá es abriendo un ticket de la mesa de ayuda. https://help.raise3d.com/support/tick...

Re: Left or Right Nozzle

Again, I fully understand what you want to do and it's not a bad idea. It does take a little bit to move the logical connections over, but as said, you might be best off doing just that, making the right the left extruder as far as wiring goes, and by doing so, just keep on slicing for a single extr...

Re: Very Bobbly surface

Again, plus follow that guide I've linked and then in that other topic after you've done the common sense testing that is described (command 100mm of extrusion and measure the actual consumed), then do the 100% infill cube test https://forum.raise3d.com/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=20580 to further fine...

Re: Very Bobbly surface

Extruding too much. Key what I'm seeing here is that your support structure printed correctly or a least was able to compensate but somehow, some of your extrusion factor is way, way, way off for the object. Printers are highly accurate in XYZ movement. The number one issue is getting extrusion righ...

Re: How to calibrate / check the E-Steps?

Agreed, 0.5mm is an expected variation of grip based on surface hardness of filament (PLA VS ABS). The teeth bite in differently changing the "effective diameter" of the drive grippe gear thus ever so slightly changing the effective distance moved for a given rotation. This is why filament...

Re: How to calibrate / check the E-Steps?

Again, being honest, I generally advise against changing a commercial printer from a known steps per mm value unless you absolutely have some proven test result showing it to be off enough to justify changing. You are then straying from the baseline and as such setting yourself up for self support. ...

Re: How to calibrate / check the E-Steps?

Again, when I commission a new printer, no matter what brand, what options, what control panel, there is always a method of performing this test.

Re: How to calibrate / check the E-Steps?

If you want to be sure, run that test a few times (extrude 100mm of filament per time, marking a new line each starting test).
That will let you know how consistent the system is before you go adjusting a variable like steps per mm.

Re: How to calibrate / check the E-Steps?

You can do it ALL from the control panel. Simply preheat the extruder, have it in the homed position left front corner. Lower the bed just to give yourself some extra room. Get a sharpie marker, and a metric ruler. Measure 100mm above the extruder entrance of filament and draw a line on the filament...

Re: Left or Right Nozzle

Data point. I was trying to count them up. I lost count at over 60+ printers in 10 years, never once replaced ANY stepper due to a bearing failure. Typical printer has a minimum of 4 steppers so 60x4=240 stepper motors/0 failures and truth is, many had 5 or more steppers depending on dual Z steppers...

Re: Left or Right Nozzle

Know your breakout well. By that I mean know which thermocouple and which heater are extruder 1 or left by default, and then you would be physically either moving the heating rods and thermocouple as a matched pair to the right, or rewiring the right side to the left. Whatever you do, do not cross c...

Re: Left or Right Nozzle

In fact, I'll go one better. Probably, we all should have switched and used the right extruder from day one in single extruder applications because the right nozzle actually is slightly more build area given the offset location of the bed. What I'm saying is, do not assign the right extruder in slic...

Re: Left or Right Nozzle

#1 there is no real thing as wear on a stepper motor. Literally, I have 10 year old used stepper motors, that were used before being put into a 3D printer, and then used them for 10 more years. Heck the only parts that "wear" are 2 ball bearings on the shaft and they will outlive both of u...

Re: Missing hole in print using vase mode

Again, it's this simple. An STL file is a point cloud of connected points to form walls. Those walls have an inside and outside face. The slicer then uses those details to determine on a per layer what is infill, what is perimeter. How those walls must face and join to create a proper 3D printable m...

Re: Missing hole in print using vase mode

Just because slicer X figured out your messed up STL that doesn't conform to 3D printing rules and ideamaker didn't doesn't make ideamaker wrong.
It makes YOU wrong for not knowing the difference and correcting an STL, ensuring there is no leftover geometry that doesn't meet slicing rules.

Re: FusionTech F100L Question about Nozzle Compatibility

#1 The thermistor is a cartridge stule thermistor, and are you 100% sure you KNOW beyond a shadow of doubt it is a thermistor? Did you measure it with a meter? Both thermistor and thermocouples are isolated by a potting compound when put into those cartridge style units. So- drill the hole the diame...
