Re: Problem of printing my own resins

If the print is sticking to the PDMS (as you say it is in your case) that indicates too much exposure. If the print was falling off of the build table (usually a cause of underexposure) you would see it starting to fail after the first few layers of the print. The bottom picture looks pretty close t...

Re: New bulb won't work, something else is wrong

Most likely the HDMI is affecting things, I'm guessing that if you run the printer with VGA you will be back to printing like normal. Not sure what effects the HDMI signial, but VGA never has this problem.

Re: New bulb won't work, something else is wrong

You can turn the projector on manually using the power button, just to make sure the light comes on, then hit the power button twice to shut it back off. Make sure the vat is out so that you don't accidentally cure something you dont want to. Make sure all the connections are secure to the PCB. And ...

Re: B9 1.1 A061 error software alternative?

You can manually skip the A061 error on ALL B9Creator machines (1.0, 1.1, 1.2) by manually pressing the power button at the same time as hitting the create button (or step 3 during projector calibration). The A061 error is related to the RS232 cable from the projector. This signal lets the software ...

Re: Printing Issue (blurred corners)

Looks like it is undercuring a small amount. Try increasing the MSM by 0.1 and see if that helps.

Re: x-axis motor replacement

The lamps can't be swapped between machines. And unfortunately the 1.2 projector cannot mount onto the 1.1. the 1.2 projector is much larger than the 1.1, and the metal on the 1.1 doesn't allow the projector to just be swapped in.

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...
