Re: First print using FEP and custom made build table

To clean resin from your Casting resin... Red, green or yellow, you can put it in a very small bowl with dish washing liquid and water (like Dawn dish soap) and put the bowl in a small ultrasonic filled with water. Now you can let the Ultrasonic run for maybe 5 minutes and the resin will be clean......

Hi Mike,
Which of the resin materials would be the best to run high definition on a 70xy platform?
Thank you for your help

Re: 50 XY Calibration Print Fails

The green material may need a slight increase in MSM. Also, check that the platform is perfectly flat against a piece of glass.... If it rocks even a little bit, then the platform needs to be made more flat... When you tighten the screws on the table too much, this can also warp the platform a littl...

Re: Gaps when printing at 70XY/30 or 70XY/50

Hi Mike,
This is actually a bangle bracelet and it's 65mm OD.Other then these gaps,the bracelet prints pretty good.
I will increase the settle time as you and Robert suggested.

What would you suggest as the proper resolution for printing this using a big 70XY platform and cherry/red mix?

Re: Grid perfect but Print fails

Could also be the resin ... if you don't shake it really hard when it is new and you just use it without shaking, you may end up with a weaker resin... First Raise your MSM a little as Mike suggested ...if that does not work enough, try fresh very well shaken resin. If the fresh resin works, then ad...

Hi Robert, Thank you, I will try to send it to you later today. These holes are only happening at the beginning of the prints on the flat surface.

Re: New upgraded build table

My personal advice is to get the new build table... I have not seen it or tied it, But I have been saying for a while that having a flat build table is very important... Not only Flat , but also strong so that it can't get bent or twisted with the forces of the printer. I made my own reinforced Plat...

Re: First print using FEP and custom made build table

Hi Dan, I can't say for sure... When I was talking with the manufacturer ( a different one), they told me the silicone based glue they use would not have any measurable effect. I had to drop my MSM by more then 1/2 when I started using it on both my projectors. Personally, at the moment , for Items ...

Re: superwax yellow by Asiga

The Asiga does have a built in heater... My old one has a hot air heater that can be turned on and is temperature controlled.
The price on their material is just way out of line...And you don't know if it will work or not!

Hi Stauren, Come visit the factory in RI ... you will see that we are probably the best equipped factory for doing something like this... Prototypes do have some problems and with 1 off pieces, you may not want to re-print -resend to a caster as you may not have time. We can reprint your file if nee...

Re: RTV for wax mold

If you are doing repeats of the same item, then making a mold, injecting waxes is the way to go. Wax is far easier to cast, no special precautions really. For a beginner mold maker, use the clear silicone as you can see what your doing. You have to learn how to hand cut the rubber. This is what we u...

Perpetual dreamer... you must be Dreaming... $5 to $7 to cast one off prototypes including metal and labor.... Thats an impossibility to say. If the ring weighs 12 grams, you will go broke!

Re: v1.0 & v1.1 "Booster Kit"

You can go to any window maker in Iran... they will be able to supply the glass and cut it to the size needed... if they can't , then perhaps they can refer you to someone who can. It is not hard to do.
