If I have to print with this , I have to push the create button and right away push the bottom of the Round circle button to activate the projector. My ...

I have an older Asiga... The kind of heating system on it is very simple... it is simply a hot air heater inside the main area built in to the back wall.It has temperature control built in and can be adjusted by the built in computer. Basically a very small fan with a heater. The vat itself is not h...

Re: printing with green resin

for a new Machine, an MSN of 1.65 seems to be very high. I suggest you do a calibration print and post clean pictures of the print so we can see and help you get your machine running correctly.

Re: Power lamp flashing

Hi, I mentioned a couple emails back that you need to hit create, then within 1 or 2 seconds push the button on the projector to start the projector. Usually this will work. This problem could be in B9 software or projector software. I have this problem with my projector and simply do what I mention...

Re: Poly Vats- Ears not flat? Causes Rocking

The difference in the modified polyvats is that I have squared the vats and put Glass in place of the acrylic. Makes them easier to maintain and flat to the rest of the machine. Other then speed, I would put the prints from my 1.2's against any existing printer. I am pretty sure some prints I did ar...

Re: Power lamp flashing

Try this: When you hit "create" in software, almost immediately after, press the round ring on the projector . This is at the bottom of the round ring. You will here a click and the projector should stay on. I have to do this 90% of the time or I get blinking like you do. I don't know how ...

Re: Malfunctioning engine x

I don't think there is a problem ... the newer software does not need to go all the way into the same position every time. It goes as far as needed to get the part to release. and returns. It does not do that every time. If you put the part in software at the front of the platform and no other parts...

Re: Poly Vats- Ears not flat? Causes Rocking

Both, my 1.1 and my 1.2 machines have numerous areas that I had to square up so that I could get the quality that I wanted. If you look at the front of the machine, the Flat shelf that everything rides on is slightly bowed. This is caused by the method used to bend the Aluminum. Squaring the shelf w...

Re: Is anyone using the new Core series printer?

Hi Mike, Very nice! If I attempted that same file on my 1.2 machine, I would probably get 1 print and damage the pdms in the process...right where all the thicker parts are! I'd be playing with positioning and other things to get them to work ... eventually I would get it... but I can see the advant...

Re: Toggle switch

you can bring the broken switch to the electronics shop and they will know what it is and what can be used to replace it if they don't have the exact same one...
You can put that info into the search at http://www.digikey.com
and it will probably show up. it is a very standard switch.

Re: Maker Juice Waxcast printing problems

For that material, you have to sand blast or sand rough the surface of the build plate. that will cause pretty good adhesion. I have tried casting the material, but I did not have much success after attempting multiple burn out methods. Seems ok for very small filigree parts.Also, there are no real ...

Re: projector upgrade

There are 2 1.2 projectors on the forum for sale $2500 for both as a lot.Modifications are done to one of them. That is a screaming bargain and about what it will cost to do modifications to the 1.0 and you would have 2 machines. I believe just the modified B9 1.2 projector is around $1600.00 You wi...

Re: explainations of settings?

You really need to do a calibration print and post pictures if you need help with it.
You are using all new stuff, so a calibration is needed.
