Re: Need help for calibration machine v1.1 XY50m

I agree with Robert in saying that you should try printing a piece with known dimensions and measuring against that. The calibration print is meant to be a tool to help you get close and have an idea of what the printer is doing. Even so, it can have some issues being extremely accurate due to the f...

Re: Print trouble due to PDMS

I would try and orient the model in a different way. Usually when you can print some model great but others come out poorly, it is down to the orientation/support of the model. Having the model printed on the base of the floor can run into issues, raising the whole thing up on supports can help with...

Re: Print trouble due to PDMS

In the second picture, the waterfall edge isn't covered by pdms, which is going to rip parts of the print off as it cycles. The whole waterfall edge needs to be covered with pdms. Also dont remove any of the "excess" PDMS that flows over into the deeper side of the vat. The excess helps se...

Re: replacing lamp on 1.2v machine questions

Just run the calibration print again on the new bulb. The whole MSM, balance, fade, slope is related to controlling the light output of the bulb not the whole projector, so when you change the bulb the settings you have currently will most likely not be exactly what the new one needs.

Re: Test Control Board

Simply run a test printer functions, located under settings>printer calibration>test printer functions. If you can run through all of the steps then the control board should be OK.

Re: STRANGE OVERRIDDEN PARAMETERS

You can make a custom material with just an increased attach exposure time like metalcaster is saying. Just go under settings, into the material catalog, make a duplicate of the material you are using and increase the attach multiplier.

Re: Build Table Problem

Open the software and go to settings>printer settings, at the bottom there will be a reset to default. click that and try again. Keep in mind if you have changed any of your fade, balance, MSM, or slope, these will be reset as well.

Re: Calibration grid projected on portable display

Well, it sounds like an issue then with windows not being able to properly use a dedicated graphics card for output. Sounds like a pretty big issue in my opinion so I would hope that they are working on patching that soon. Sounds like you have a good idea, roll back and keep an eye on windows update...

Re: Calibration grid projected on portable display

What connection are you using? VGA or HDMI?


Do you have a dedicated graphics card where you can select settings, say from a Nvidia or AMD control panel or is it just intel graphics?

Re: Calibration grid projected on portable display

So, the only thing that seems out of place is the "3D Display Mode" option. I would suggest changing that for your secondary, projector, display. Also the resolution says "1920x1080 recommended, 3D" option is there an option for a non-3D mode? Not sure that is the solution, but I...

Re: Calibration grid projected on portable display

Go ahead and post screenshots of your display settings page as well as the printer management page. Would be helpful to see. I know of no issues so far with the windows 10 update.

Re: Calibration grid projected on portable display

Usually display id 2 is set as your main output display in the printer management page. But sometimes the screens are flipped when you set your screen resolution, so you may need to change that or set display id 1 as your actual output. Also you can try pressing the "Auto" button on the gr...

Follow the fine tuning process here and that will allow you to even out the energy from the bulb across the build area. http://www.b9c.com/assets/media/files/documentation/b9-creator-projector-tuning-process.pdf

Re: B9Creator Booster Kit

You are correct, the MSM will need to be much lower than it was previously. Depending on what you are seeing for sizes of the squares and how the logos look, will determine how low the value needs to go.
