Please contact The Workshop for information about orientation to the Raise N2+. It will be added to our regular orientation schedule shortly.
Unload the previous user's filament to select your own color/type.
|1||On the printer touchscreen, select Utilities|
|2||Select Unload under Left or Right Extruder (default Left)|
|3||Wait a minute while the print head is heating up. By heating it up we ensure that the filament is being melted before retracting it from the nozzle.|
|4||When the nozzle is hot, select Unload and the Raise N2+ will start rewinding the filament through the tube.|
|5||Follow directions on screen - when filament comes above extruder gear, press ok button to finish operation|
|6||Gently tug filament to remove from tube|
|7||Repeat for second extruder if desired|
Now, load the filament you want to use.
|1||Make your filament selection from what is available - use 1.75mm PLA, ABS or HIBS filament.|
|2||Clip off the melted end of filament using wire clippers. This helps to prevent the filament from jamming.|
|3||Place the spool of filament on the spool holder on the side of the printer. Make sure to put it with the filament in the direction indicated in the photo at right - so the filament is feeding up through the center tube.|
|4||On the printer touchscreen, select Utilities, then Load for Left or Right Extruder|
Wait a minute while the print head heats up. When the nozzle is hot, select Load.
When the filament gear starts rotating, feed the filament through the guide tube
When the filament is coming out of the extruder, press OK
|8||Repeat for second extruder if desired|
|2||Printer > Print Settings. Make sure Printer Type: RAISE3D N2 Plus - V2 Hot End and Extruder Count: 1 (or 2, if using 2)|
|3||Click Add in upper left corner. (For info on finding models, see 3D Printing Resources p7)|
|4||Select your object using left mouse button (indicated by white box around object)|
|5||Use right mouse button to rotate, use scroll button to move plate|
Adjust model using tools on top:
|7||When done positioning object, click the Start button to begin slicing|
|8||Select template based on quality and time desired|
|9||Select Edit on template to adjust infill density, shells, platform adhesion, and supports|
|11||Review print time, then select Export|
|12||Export the files to your USB drive - you’ll have both a .gcode and .data, which are both necessary|
Remember that 3D printing is itself a kind of experiment. Choose options that you think will work best for your model.
Common elements to adjust in your object include: layer thickness, infill density, shell thickness, raft and supports.
|1||Plug USB drive into printer|
|2||Select the “Print” menu, then choose “USB Storage”|
