N-Series Printer Operation
First of all, please read through the Quick Start Guide before operating N-Series Printer.
Please watch this unboxing video here.
Please read through the touchscreen manual and ideaMaker manual.

A Low Temperature Material Printing Tips
Low temperature material is the material that prints at lower nozzle temperature (generally lower than 235˚C). PLA is a typical low temperature material so we will use Raise3D Premium PLA as an example. Low temperature material usually requires enough cooling to avoid model being over heated. Here are a few tips.
- Remove the top cover
- Do not install the fan bottom cover.
- Set minimum time per layer to 15 secs or more.
- If you have single extruder, you can also turn on the model cooling fan by setting the fan speed to 100%.
B High Temperature Material Printing Tips
High temperature material is the material that prints at higher nozzle temperature (generally lower than 240˚C). ABS is a typical high temperature material so we will use Raise3D Premium ABS as an example. High temperature material usually requires higher environment temperature to avoid warping and shrinkage. Here are a few tips.
- Install the top cover and close all doors.
- Install the fan bottom cover.
- Preheat the heating bed to 110 ˚
- Adjust nozzle and bed gap to 0.1mm and Raft is recommended.
- If you have single extruder, you can also turn off the model cooling fan by setting the fan speed to 0%.
C Dual Nozzle Alignment
The dual extruder is a very compact structure in a very limited space. The cold-end fan is also used for material cooling. However, when printing high melting temperature materials like ABS, you can use a fan cover to block the cooling winds.
Another challenge for dual extruder printing is nozzle height adjustment. We developed a procedure that can easily adjust nozzle height. Secondary backup locking screws are installed on the left/right side of the extruder carriage. The screw is blocked by the cold-end fan, so remove the cold-end fan first and then take out the secondary backup screw. Then you can easily move up/down the hot-end by loosing the front screw. 0.2mm distance would be acceptable for most cases. And replacing the hot-end is in the same way.

D Dual Nozzle Printing Range
When printing with right nozzle, you will lose 25mm print size only on X direction. You can check ‘Show Extruder’s Printing Range’ to check if your model is out of the range.
E Dual Nozzle Offset Calibration
Please follow instruction here.
F Printing with Nylon Filament
Nylon won’t stick to N-Series printer build surface well so if you want to print with Nylon filament, please use the glass side of the build plate and apply adhesive to it. Please contact your filament supplier for more information on proper adhesive to use.
