Re: Need help in calibration, extreeme setttings!

Re: Need help in calibration, extreeme setttings!

Although every thing looks pretty good, you may be having a problem with items printing differently in various areas . If you look at the Photo carefully, you can see the 9's on the B+ side are further away from center of the triangle then the 9's on the B- side.The B+ side is correct and the B- is ...

Re: Core 530 vs. 550

Depends on the stones that you are casting in place... with diamonds, I have gone to 1350... burned out resin( resin must be cured for a longer time to guarantee a better burn out)

Hello Barracuda, If you need help , we are here :-) The new Platform that is on the B9 website for the 1,1.1 and 1.2 will be the next thing you should consider if you have any other problems printing the calibration grid.

When you look at it on a computer screen, the beads look OK, but when you bring it down to print size, the beads l...

Re: Does anyone have 100% success casting yellow?

The boric acid is an old method and it does work well.I used this many years ago when we had to burn out and cast plastics. It is harder to break out, but nothing like Platinum investment. However,Just going to the 36/100 ratio with Plasticast seems to work on similar pieces that I cast into models ...

Re: Does anyone have 100% success casting yellow?

Hi, Usually, to cast items like this, I have to leave it in the double light box nail curing unit for at least 6 hours on a rotating table. Then, I mix my investment at 36/100 ration. sit for 2 hours at room temp 1 hour at 212 oF ( to remove all water) 1 Hour at 350 oF 1 hour at 750 oF 1450 for 6 ho...

Re: First print using FEP and custom made build table

1st thing to do is reduce your msm by about 1/2 of what you are using with FEP.
My machines are working at .5 msm on one and .7 on the other.
Print a calibration when you are positive your table is dead flat.

Re: First print using FEP and custom made build table

Hi Lobby, When you tighten the screws holding the platform to the Black holder is another potential problem . The screws can cause the table to miss-align. Better to check the flatness of the table right after calibrating the build platform. Remove it from the Machine with the Black holder still att...
