Re: Calibration grid projected on portable display

For a while there, I thought I was going nuts... until you had the same issues. I resolved mine by setting up 2 older lap tops running win 7 and not allowing those to go online or to attempt to update.... which can be done with older windows. This actually works better as I can have all the laptops ...

Re: Calibration grid projected on portable display

I went as far as re- installing windows 10 and it still would not allow any settings to be changed to the correct settings for the 1.2 . The only way I could get it to operate the printer was to eliminate the Nvidea Graphics card and only use the on board Graphics. That has HMDI and VGA. Setting the...

Re: Print Lifting Off Build Table

You are loosing a bit of pressure on that side. A simple solution is to put a piece of folded paper between the black arm and the red platform on the side that is lifting up. This will fix it. Probably need to fold the paper 2 times and stick it in the front/side of the platform . This is caused whe...

Re: Bronze casting - mold casting temperature?

I melt 500 grams of Bronze in about 3 minutes with propane and oxygen and a large rosebud tip on my torch. If you are using natural gas, the pressure would be way too low. You have to have at least a $4000 gas compressor to compress the incoming gas to around 50 PSI . This is what we use now so we d...

Re: PROJECTOR LAMP REPLACE

I have this happen almost every week. My solution was to put the projector and power supply on an electrical strip with on /off. I turn the projector off at the end of my printing day... or night. Usually, I can print for 2 or 3 days and then it would happen. So as a security measure, I just turn of...

I checked my acct and they don't have this motor any more on Amazon. You can probably get it on ebay or from robotshop.com Robot shop probably has it. The motor is 1/8th inch bigger, so the opening needs to be a bit bigger. easy to do. Here is the description of the motor. DIY CNC Nema17 Stepper Mot...

Re: trying to Revive a 1.1 b9printer

I bought my Z motor replacement from Amazon ... came in from china. I actually got one that was just a little stronger and had to cut open the motor area a tiny bit for it to fit. If you want, I can try to look up the model number on My acct.

Re: Pdms, model growing into surface ??

When you are adding supports in the software, you will notice that you have bottom, mid and top supports to use. In the bottom support builder, you have something called penetration. The higher the penetration, the more it will bite into the pdms and cause damage. If you look at the top support, it ...

Re: round is oval

I would check the projector alignment. when moving it, it is very easy to be a tiny amount out one way or the other... I think if it is slightly out of alignment, You would get a very slightly oval shape. You can print a square and you will probably have a lot of banding lines due to the misalignment.

Re: Trouble with fill reference when starting a print

When I look at your print settings, nothing seems to have been adjusted to "tune" the machine.... also, did you run the "calibrate build table" ? these things must be done before you can print anything.

Re: B9Creator Booster Kit

When you install the kit, you need to do a complete calibration process since everything has been moved. When you have printed a calibration print, clean it and post a clear picture of the print. At that point, some of us can respond and let you know what to adjust to get the calibration print bette...
