Re: B9 v1.2 for sale

B9 v1.2 is an excellent printer in terms of print quality and reliability having owned and used both the v1.2 and Core 530. I highly recommend it for those on a budget, can't afford a Core or are hobbyists who don't do many prints and to whom speed isn't so much of a concern. I do not work for or ha...

Re: High Speed Printing using v1.2 Might be Possible?

I think its possible if they offered duravats for the v1.2 .. No need for sweeping mechanisms then. ^^

Re: B91.2 printing on its peak.

amazing details.. I would love to see a screen grab of your layout file. It seems like you need a heck lot of supports to print this. The B9 v1.2 is once heck of a nice machine to run. If only the PDMS tray didn't require any maintenance ^^

Re: UV/Laser handheld light recommendation?

The Uv pens work really well... you can fill areas much better then super glue, then after curing for 10 seconds, it's strong enough that you can file the UV glue down to a perfect finish. Works with the B9 material too. If it's a large repair, you can tack it with the pen, add material to the cavi...

I use super glue


yes, I use that for initial joints but sometimes I need to fill holes and need more material. There are many of these uv lights available on Amazon. Don't want to buy one that doesn't work.

The UV glue works great for non castable repairs and the UV light cures B9 material very quickly


Do you have a link online where I could buy it? I live north of the border and we don't have Walgreens around. :D

UV/Laser handheld light recommendation?

Hi,
I was wondering if any of you have used and could recommend a portable UV or laser light/keychain I can use to cure B9 resin and join printed parts/fill holes etc?
I have the B9 curing light box but its not suited when I need to hold parts together with my hands and cure.

thanks.

Re: Supports

lol.. try orienting the part at an angle to eliminate full horizontal surface which seems to be floating and would likely still fail with lots of supports

Re: 3d scanner use for making shadow bands

aren't there any on kickstarter right now? I swear I saw some scanners available few years ago. Best way to find something for cheap although it might be a gamble.

Re: B9 Model Cure , longer times ?? how ?

If it were possible I think it would be a very bad idea. The LEDs generate a considerable amount of heat. If u mess with the electronics and something goes wrong like the fan malfunction you could be creating a fire hazard. If u have a need to cure something for an hr then it is probably not a B9 m...

Re: B9 CORE SERIES CLONE AT SPECIAL PRICE

Mr. Mike, I told a dental friend about the B9 Core (the Creator was too techie for him) and that it is self calibrating, etc. He checked into it and said that he would have to buy the dental model (Cara) of the Core and that it would cost about $17,000. What would he be getting that I won't get whe...

I've moved to using 91% IPA instead of 70% and I have not see that behavior when rinsing in straight IPA (no water).


yeah.. could be all the impurities in water that react with alcohol and resin

Re: Frosting from rubbing alcohol?

yeah.. Pure alcohol will do that if you don't rinse it off quickly. I went to using diluted alcohol to wash parts. Fill a container with warm water, pour few drops of alcohol in it, rinse parts in it, then rinse the part under the tap again. Haven't tried casting parts with frosting so I don't know ...

Just sharing some hi res photos of simple rings printed with the 530 Core. I know there aren't many around. These photos were taken using a macro lens. Click to zoom in and see the print layer details. You can see some of the fine pixel/print layer details. Its almost microscopic, like grains of san...

looking at the set-up you've created, I was wondering if there was maybe an easier way to move the projector out to the further position. Could something like this be used? Seems like it would make it very simple to extend the projector out to the further position, than having to swap out bolts (no...

Re: So few posts on Core series...

Right now, I'm more interested in the new resin they teased on Facebook. They had it at the jck show. Not much info available, but apparently this resin is only for the Core series? From what I read, its not meant for casting but prints very fast so its suitable for prototypes, test and sample mode...

Re: Question on latest print?

hmm... could be your burnout process that is the problem. Someone else would be able to give you advice on that. I cast b9 red/cherry resin and have not had any problems. Emerald resin should be much better I hear.

Are you using B9 Core 530 printer? or Core 550?
