Re: Loading filament doesn't stop!

"I am feeding the new filament to follow the old filament after cutting it, but do I have to do it by manually hit the E feeding in the menu?"

Yes, exactly. I usually feed about 300mm of new filament, to ensure that the previous filament is completely purged from the nozzle.

Re: N series camera - missing matching Raise Touch update

Since the camera is not shipping yet, it doesn't much matter whether the SW is there or not.

ideaMaker/N2 hidden Layer count info

I discovered a nice little feature of iM and the printer: when printing, if you tap "Height" on either the latest iM or on the printer LCD display, it toggles between showing Height in mm with percentage of height complete, to displaying the current layer number and total layers in the mod...

Re: Loading filament doesn't stop!

Don't use filament unloading/loading at all. Just cut the old filament just above the extruder, heat the hotend, and feed material to follow the old filament in with the new filament. Unloading the filament causes a significant number of jams, when the hot filament catches in the transition from hot...

Re: Feature Request: Blip fan to 100%

Vicky, it doesn't seem to matter what you add to the development list - nothing ever comes of it, the N2 camera being an example of never delivering what was promised more than a year ago. Sad, but as a result, Raise3D is no longer on my "recommended list" of 3D printers, because you never...

Re: Pro Upgrade Kit

Apparently Raise3D is not interested in offering any upgrades for the N2, and has chose to stall the N2 owners forever with ongoing bullshit and no upgrades. If anyone asks, I won't ever be recommending Raise3D to anyone, because of these continuing lies about "upgrades" that might meet th...

Re: N-Series Hot End Silicon Socks

"And we will open the sale of these covers to be ordered separately very soon."

Is "very soon" 2018, or is it like the camera for the N2, promised, but never delivered?

Re: Shifted print

I don't know if it is related to the shifting, but I'm hoping you mean .15 or .2mm layer height, rather than 1.5 to 2.0mm. The images are too blurry to tell for sure, but they do not appear to show a 1.5mm layer height. Generally, layer height should be in the range of .3 to .7 of the nozzle size fo...

Re: Feature Request: Blip fan to 100%

If you try to start a fan at 10% speed, for example, most fans won't start - they simply stall and overheat. If you manually start the fan rotating, it will continue running at 10%, but it won't self-start. The idea is to give the fan an initial "kick" with a brief pulse to maybe 30%, to g...

Re: Bracket/Fix for N2 Rotating Z-Axis Ball Nuts

If the flats are a press-fit on the ball-nuts, then why bolt them in place at all? Why not just open up the holes for the top of the holding bolts, and press the piece on to the ball-huts from the top?

The exposed edges of the plastic enclosure are also extremely sharp. I used a plastic de-edger to smooth them to avoid cuts.
