ALL RAISE3D PRICING IS DELIVERED!
At Profound3D.com, there is no additional shipping charge for Raise3D printers. The Raise3D N2 ships via LTL freight service (curbside delivery). The N2 is a large, heavy-duty machine (shipping weight is 168 lbs., shipping dimensions are 28.5 w x 28 d x 49 h), so please plan for delivery accordingly.
The Raise3D N2 Plus is designed to meet the needs of the most demanding users.
When it comes to 3D printing, size actually does matter; If you need to build something that's a foot wide, you can't do it on printer that only prints ten inches. When it comes to large volume FDM printers, you can't beat the RAISE3D universe - it's large enough to print an actual universe in one pass. Okay, that's a small exaggeration, but you'll not find a better value in 3D printers in a size versus price comparison. Nothing even comes close.
And this brings us to another of the RAISE3D's strong points: You can print nearly anything with it. The free software has more tweak-able settings than any other slicer we've seen. Need to print your basic PLA and ABS materials? The included profiles turn it out as well as anything can; even the finest details are reproduced better than anything we've seen. Have some more exotic materials to work with? It can handle everything we've thrown at it, and with a hardened nozzle [a very affordable option] you can delve into the carbon fiber filaments and even more exotics. And the added bonus? You can get it with dual extruders to mix and match materials at will in the 12x12x24 build volume. Let's not forget to mention the resume function in case of power loss. Okay, we just did.

The N-Series printers accept standard 3D printing G-code, but for the best results, we provide our own high-performance slicer to give you the optimal Raise3D experience.
Our ideaMaker slicer has a powerful 64-bit multi-threading slicing engine that powers through slicing tasks with ease. It is built to handle large-scale objects so that even your most challenging prints can be processed, while other slicers may struggle or even crash with complicated jobs.
The ideaMaker software is loaded with features, including the ability to automatically repair broken meshes, and to split large models into smaller chunks, and remote control the N-Series printers.
The standard settings in ideaMaker yields excellent results. Yet, for experienced users, the ability to control detail of the printing process is essential. ideaMaker is highly adjustable, allowing you to use advanced settings to control nearly every parameter of the slicing process.
After less than 2 months of owning this printer, with almost 464 hours printing, this printer is dead and being sent back to the factory. It has been nothing but a headache since day one. Between the very non-user friendly settings, to shifting prints, warping rafts and now a fried therocoupler board. It has gone from one headache to another. Calls with the raise3D support team (who are very good) have become a weekly occurrence.
- no camera means you need to buy a separate one and set it up especially with the large build volume.
- Clips on the print bed reduce the actual area you can print in. If your extruder hits the clips. Get ready to pony up 150 bucks for new extruders
- The spool holders are poorly constructed causing the spools to grind into the side door.
- Door connectors don't line up and require you to lift the doors to shut it.
- Adjusting the bed height is a thumbscrew and very finicky
- Extruders are as basic as they come and have no break/jam sensor
-Support team is excellent (you'll be spending a lot of time with them)
-Print volume is massive
-Quality, when it works, is fantastic
-Touch screen is really great
I'm very please so far with the printer. It is well built and has already produced excellent prints. Listed below are my Pros and Cons for the printer:
Pros...Excellent slicing software and interface. Easy to use wireless connectivity. Nice large touchscreen controller on the machine. Rock solid frame and linear motion components. Fully enclosed with excellent maximum temperatures on hot ends and build plate. Fully removable build plate. Has produced excellent parts with great detail and accuracy.
Cons....Chassis of machine vibrates excessively (needs dampeners on wheels). Spool loading area is too narrow and would not fit my spools (my spools are about 10 cm too wide for the door to close). Enclosed USB thumb drive did not have any test print files on it. Plexiglas doors and enclosure are too thin and flexible for the quality of the rest of the machine. Door locks too cheap (magnetic locks would have been better). Slicing software lacks the ability to program build speed at different layers during the build. The BuildTac side of the build plate is hard to use and requires almost perfect nozzle height adjustment, if your nozzle is too close you can't get your part off the plate, too far away and you get poor adhesion. The z axis end stop adjustment screw on my machine was able to move a bit (front to back along the machines y axis) which made precise bed/nozzle spacing difficult to achieve. Last but not least, for it's build size, it's not very fast and the build plate takes about 6-8 minutes to get to 100 c. It would also be nice to have a programmable automatic power shutoff after the print is complete.
Overall I would buy another Raise 3D N2. For the huge build size and part accuracy it's awesome. For the slicer and machine interface it's awesome. Most of the other issues are nit-picky (it is a $3800 printer!) and can be improved by the manufacturer in future models.
So far very nice . some issues with the software during a pause print not sending the z axis away so the nozzles don't interfere with the front heat platform clamps. this must be changed! Raise 3d has good communication. Profound was nice to deal with also. Waiting for the firmware update to solve the z axis problem
