Re: layers swimming in the vat

Agreed with ak on re-calibrating. Also make sure that you have selected the right resin in the print menu.

Re: Few questions about B9

So, when printing, there has to be a way to control how much energy it takes to cure a slice well enough to print but also maintain an accurate slice thickness. Part of this is via the projector and how long the output of each slice is shone, but it also comes down to the resin properties. For examp...

Re: Few questions about B9

To answer your questions: 1. The z-motor moves in 5 layer steps, this determines the minimum slice thickness of 5 microns. However, finding a resin that control the depth of cure down to 5 microns will be the hard part and your xy resolution is still going to be a minimum of 30 microns. So improveme...

Re: Yellow at 15 microns?

Just because you can doesn't always mean you should :D The yellow is pigmented for 20-50 microns, so 15 is out of the limits that we have determined for this resin. You can still slice that low, but that is mainly a feature used to give some flexibility to the people who like to test different resin...

Re: contamination

I wouldn't think skin contact would make any difference. Either way I would suggest using gloves for resin to skin contact ;)
It could be a number of things though such as clouding PDMS, not enough resin in the vat etc... I guess it depends on what you mean by "Less reliable"

Re: windows 7

Most likely an issue with your graphics drivers on your computer, update those and that should fix the problem.

Re: Where did the edge go?

Looks like you are possibly selecting the wrong printer configuration in printer management? Check that you are using the configuration for the 1.2 machine and not the 1.1 machine. Same for calibration prints.

Re: 1.1 machine issue with Platform calibration/Help

It's possible for those switches to be tightened or turned a little crooked thus causing and early trigger. If you loosen the 2 screws that hold the switch in place from the back side of the machine, you should be able to wiggle the switch a little bit to get it into a position that it won't trigger...

Re: Slicing???

The output will need to be 1920x1080 for the projector, the main display resolution can be less than that and still have a 1920x1080 output. But if you plug in the VGA cable from the projector then you will be able to see what options you have in the display settings.

Re: Slicing???

I would suggest trying a different cable config. If you are using a computer that can output VGA I would have you try that. Digital cabling such as Display Port and HDMI can have problems with the projector and printing, but VGA has proven to be rock solid for signal.

Re: Vat question and idea

If you look at the underside of the vat there should be a fillet of glue around the outside bottom around the edges of the window. It will be noticeable if it is there or not, but that layer of glue is there partially to prevent some of the leaking that was being seen in earlier vats and seems to be...

Re: What is the huge difference between 1.1 and 1.2?

The biggest differences between the v1.1 and v1.2 machines is the projector used which in turn affects the quality of the print. The v1.1 has a 1024x768 resolution. This allows for a 50 micron xy resolution. Also they have a different z-axis movement structure. There were a few upgrades over time fo...

Re: Display problem

Change the slider first to 100%, apply it, then restart the software and check that the printer managment allows you to select 1920x1080. You may have to play with the position of the slider a bit though to get the right resolution in printer management, restarting the software after every change. I...

Right click on the desktop and go into "Display Settings" then change the slider that affects the size of text. It's weird but dedicated graphics cards seem to have this situation

There are ways around the PDMS for printing (eg. the NuVat coating), everything is give and take though. Some coatings work ok or even great for jewelry and pieces with small cross sections. Usually though, when you start getting larger cross sections of resin being cured, the tolerance for cure tim...

Re: Solus at 10 Z with Emerald resin

The Emerald will print at as low as 25 microns in the z axis (sliced) and that is based on pigmentation of the resin tested with our projector. Going below that, you start introducing z-bleed. You may be able to get lower than that as different variables with projectors that other machines use may b...

Re: Call to the experts

Shims shouldn't be needed in order to get the projector leveled like Robert was saying. Another thing to check is that your zoom wheel is only hard over at 30 or 70 (depending on calibration) and the thumb screw is used to bring the level up and down. Then so long as the grid lines up and can focus,...
