B9 Core Series Release Notes 1.0.27 Firmware 57

Features/Improvements:

See the newest features in our B9Create software driven by your feedback: Queue and Surface Finish, responding to the market’s desire for improved surface finish and the ability to more efficiently manage printing workflow in high-volume applications better than ever before.

Designed for the B9 Core Series, use our new Surface Finish feature for when a flawless finish is a must – perfect for making master molds or unique pieces requiring superior smoothness.

Driven by user feedback, the new Surface Finish software feature augments the exceptional print speed and crisp detail of the B9 Core Series with remarkable smoothness that reduces post-processing time. Ideal for when a flawless finish is a must, Surface Finish was designed for making master molds or unique pieces requiring a superior finish.

The Queue feature in B9Create makes managing high-volume production easy, offering customers an intuitive way to optimize their workday no matter how many models, machines or team members are involved.  Our software now enables separation of process management and scheduling from the act of printing.  Shop Floor or Production Managers can prioritize workflow and leave the printing to technician due the speed and simplicity of the Core Series platform, powered by B9Create, B9Creations free software package.

With Queue, you can:

  • Batch upload files to your printer
  • Select models, materials, and resolution
  • Slice files directly in the Queue
  • Reorder and delete models with a click
  • Update the Queue in real time on your printer
  • Lock your list in Print Manager mode
  • Get time estimates for your Queue
  • Reprint or move to the next model at the printer

Additional features include improved supports closer to build table, Tiny Supports added as a default support type, and "Front" and "Back" text added to the build table.

All features are available in B9Creations free software, B9Create, available for download here.
