Bondtech DualDrive Raise3D N1, N2 and N2+ Dual Extruder Upgrade.
The Raise3D N series printers have, perhaps, the best frame on the FDM scene to this day. It does, however, need a bit of love to get it printing reliably. Probably the weakest link of the printer is the stock extruder.
With not so much as a spring loaded gearset from stock. The Bondtech swings you right to the other end of the scale. Check out this list of features:
- Twin dual drive extruder gears
- Adjustable spring tension
- Thumb press filament release
- Bolt-on no cut no solder installation
- LIGHT! 425g (original 890g)
- Pancake stepper motors included
- Fits both revision 1 and revision 2 printheads
We have had this upgrade running on our N2+ for over 3 years when writing this and the only time we've ever had an extrusion issue was when trying to over-extrude flexible filament with the nozzle too close to the bed on the first layer. I can put my hand on my heart and confidently say this is the best upgrade you could do for your Raise3D N series printer.
High Performance Extruder
This kit provides a high-performance material feeding system with the ability to print faster with improved quality. The adjustable thumbscrew allows you to fine-tune the force acting on the filament.
SLS 3D Printed in PA12
The housing parts are professionally SLS printed in polyamide for maximum strength and precision.
Compatibility With Legacy And New Motors
This Upgrade Kit is compatible with the new Raise3D’s black motors. Older ones (silver) require the “Adapter Raise3D Dual” you can find in the “You may need” column, here on the right hand side. Check for more details in the Description.
This extruder upgrade kit for the Raise3D N1/N2/N2+ printer will replace the original feeder placed on the printhead.
On early printers an Adapter Raise3D Dual cable is required to connect the factory cable to the new motor. You can determine if your printer has legacy motors with an easy visual check. Motors that require the adapter will have a silver appearance (unpainted aluminum finish) on the front and rear side of the motor. If the motors on your printer have black front and rear motor endplates you will not need this adapter.
Reliable Filament Extrusion
It allows for a more reliable printing with all sorts of filaments, both stiff and flexibles and the DualDrive system ensures that the extruder never looses grip of the filament so grinding, slipping is a thing of the past.
Half Weight For Improved Quality And Speed
Original extruder setup on Raise3D is 890g for dual setup, this new upgrade is 425g with the included motors and it allows for faster printing without surface issues due to vibration during accelerations/decelerations.
Includes Pancake Stepper Motors
The kit comes with it owns lightweight pancake motors.
The extruder is equipped with two push-fit connectors for 4 mm guide tube that will let you connect the existing guide tubes to the extruder. Tubes are not included.
Installs in about half an hour with standard tools available.
This upgrade fits both the Revision 1 (casted) and Revision 2(cnc-milled) version of the printhead.
Full installation guide available at the tab installation guide.
Installation is done in about 20 minutes.
Plug & Play solution, no need to cut and solder wires.
E-step value: 415
It has come to our knowledge that if the ribbon cable to the break-out board gets unplugged when the printer is turned on, thermal runway might happen, make sure that the ribbon cable is securly held in place with hotmelt or a zip tie.
