Replacing USB A/B cable

I seem to be getting some connection issues between the printer and our laptop and am looking to replace our usb cable. (unplugging/replugging and cutting the printer off/on fixes it but I have to do it every print) Does anyone have a recommendation to a specific brand of cable that works well as a ...

Re: Warped Prints

Is your film perfectly flat against the quartz? I had a similar issue when i replaced my film and noticed the film didnt lay 100% flat against the quartz. To check, just empty out the VAT and place it back on with no resin, then use something to poke around on different areas to see if there are spo...

Re: solus wax burnout

I used to use that and I would constantly get pitted castings from (I presume) ash left in the flask, that's why I tried the Soluswax, but I'm still having a few problems with that. With t...

Re: solus wax burnout

Messerbr, Can you tell me when you put the flask into the kiln when ramping up to 1450? as soon as the kiln is turned on or when it reaches that temperature? I put the flask into a cold kiln so it would be in there while temperatures went from 70F to 1450F. Although, we have switched back to using ...
