Re: Test print quality questionable

AK, am I to understand that the sharpest projected grid should be on the bottom of the vat window rather than the top where we place the calibration paddle? I feel like this would be hard to really accomplish for mere humans, is there a trick I'm not thinking of, or am I just misunderstanding?

Re: 1kg = a Liter?

about $0.20. I'm estimating though. to find this I found the number of ml in a kg. for water which is close to the same SG as resin it's 1000 ml to a kg. divide the cost of a KG of resin by 1000 ml to get the cost. I would add a bit to the cost though since you lose some resin during cleanup too. Al...

Re: 1kg = a Liter?

that would make sense. but I wouldn't want to include support structure etc. in a quote, unless I was trying to give myself a good amount of wiggle room; or punish a demanding customer :lol: .

Re: 1kg = a Liter?

we charge customers a flat rate for prints rather than according to how much resin we use. that way we can give a quote immediately on customer inquiries rather than "well you have to send it and we have to see how much it will take to print".

Re: Life Time of New DuraVats

The print time for the test print varies a bit depending on the resin used. We used emerald (because that's what we use) and it took under an hour at the recommended setting. the test print has some ring halves, a class ring top, and some neat doddads that show off the quality of work the printer ca...

Core Test Print Buckyball

I was wondering if the Buckyball from the test print was available as a standalone printable object. I would like to use them as Casting testers. Is the file for the sphere available or some similar model?

Re: Suggestions for printing

yep. I compared print time estimates our machine gave for black...something doesn't seem right at all. definitely submit that support ticket because the black should take less time than the emerald. Is this a used machine or did you buy it new?

Re: Suggestions for printing

the difference in print time could easily be from different materials used. I don't know if that is any real indication of an issue.

Re: Suggestions for printing

it seems like the attachment layer on the sample print is uneven, are you making sure the build platform finger screw is tightened enough? you may want to contact support as well if you haven't already.

Re: Life Time of New DuraVats

just got a Core 550 here's what I understand. all of these questions can be answered in the orientation I think. 1. Life time of the new duravats, something like 6,000 (maybe 60,000?) print hours or a year, they require a bit of regular care, (clearing the window of resin and allowing it to oxygenat...

Re: resin

uhhhhh....not this kind of resin? the resin we talk about here is UV cure and used for making 3D models and much more expensive than what you want/need for this application. I would suggest you try googling "how to make letter sealing wax" you're overthinking it I believe. something like e...

Re: Grey!

I agree! I just ordered the Grey resin and now I just read here that it is not suitable for the creator. Bad communication! I have waited also on ordering till the Grey came out. Can I use the "Black" settings or should I just return it (if I can, even though it is unopened....)? I don't ...

Re: Gray resin compatability with 1.1/1.2 printers?

from the product descriptions it seems that grey is probably faster than yellow in terms of print time. as yellow is mentioned as the "fastest printing CASTABLE resin" while grey is billed as being capable of building 100mm/hr on the core machines. (nothing else has a quote regarding how f...

it seems like it will be, there was a response earlier to a question regarding this in these forums.

Re: Problem in printing

if the projection was too large when you tried to calibrate, then moving the projector up would be the answer, not down. make sure you are calibrating for the correct print size.
