Re: Unable to start projector.

when you start the print, if the green light does not flash in 3 seconds on the projector, press the bottom of the button on the projector and that will start the projector.
This happens 40% of the time with my 2 projectors.
There has been no fix for this.

Re: Need help in calibration, extreeme setttings!

I have a feeling that you may have moved your machine at some point and the projector itself is no longer perfectly level and straight to the rest of the machine. That could create a situation where your balance is maxed out. If you put the Orange calibration paddle on the tray and use projector cal...

Re: X Axis motor issue

Check for Loose connections on the PCB Board. If it is an older 2 piece board, there is a reset button on one of them... don't know if that would help.
Personally, I suspect the PCB is in the process of failing.

Re: Issue with parts with features

Printing this piece flat on the table would be the best way to print it and it would also be a very fast and smooth print.
Printing this straight up will take much longer and due to having flat sides every where, you will have lines somewhere... So, no reason to print it standing up.

Re: Solutions to my Castings

Hi Alfred, I am in Rhode Island... not too far away as the crow flies :-) We cast for lots of people with B9 printers. I also have 2 B9's . Our advantage is we can reprint and cast if there is a problem. If you send the file ahead, I can quote In the metal you want and let you know if there are any ...

Hi Franz,
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours as well,
BNY NY may be able to install it for you if you get the parts for them from the ebay guy... otherwise i don't know anyone who could fix it.

The prints look smaller then they should be... can't really see all that good.
Is your setting in " settings-printer management" set to 50XY

Re: Setting up b9 creator v1.1

does the X motor ( tray motor) make a sound and it's not moving... If the motor does have a sound, then the golden arm retaining screws may have come loose. If no sound, then it is either a bad connection/ loose connection going to the control board... Or the motor is bad (can check motor with a 12v...

Re: Horizontal waves problem

You may want to put oil on the rods and the Z screw... But, I suspect something is out of alignment... It will be either left or right alignment of the projector or front to back. If you turn the piece you are printing, where are the lines now. Put 1 piece in 1 direction and the other piece at a rig...

Re: v1.2 jamming during print

Hi Leo,
You can also go to settings, Material catalog and on the material you are using, you can reduce the attach multiplier by 1 or 2... depending on the material you are using.
When I get sticking, thats what I reduce to fix the problem....

Re: v1.2 jamming during print

Sounds like you might have the z motor settings set for a different version of the machine. If thats not the case, Take a very thin piece of plastic sheet , put it on the tray and recalibrate. The thin plastic will raise your platform just a tiny bit. Remove the plastic sheet after calibrating and t...

Re: UV/Laser handheld light recommendation?

The Uv pens work really well... you can fill areas much better then super glue, then after curing for 10 seconds, it's strong enough that you can file the UV glue down to a perfect finish. Works with the B9 material too. If it's a large repair, you can tack it with the pen, add material to the cavit...

Re: UV/Laser handheld light recommendation?

I use the $9 glue/light pen available at Walgreens Pharmacy.
The UV glue works great for non castable repairs and the UV light cures B9 material very quickly

Re: Position and supports

Some of the smaller lettering/ wording is too close together and will run together if the lettering is not adjusted.
Anything that looks like it is almost touching on a screen this size, will definitely blend at print size.
Move the small letters further apart... now... or Later :-)

Re: PDMS issue

The air bubbles near the waterfall would usually be caused by a slight air leak from below.
I run a small amount of glue around the underneath area under the waterfall and on both sides underneath. Effectively stops that problem. This may stop the lifting of the pdms as well....
