Re: Missing chunks in every print

If you haven't upped the exposure like many have recommended, that is what I would do. As the bulb ages in the projector, the light fall off is not necessarily uniform across the entire build area so you might start to see localized areas that fail more often than others. Depending on the bulb techn...

Re: SolusCast turbo mode! Coming soon.

Did turbo mode ever get released to Contour?

Re: So what is up with SolusWax Pro?

Does SolusWax Pro have the same restrictions for supports, etc. as mentioned in the "SolusWax Tips and Tricks" pinned thread? So far I've had good luck with it, using 0.4 standard support tips to anchor my prints to the plate. I did try using the sphere tips with a thicker (0.6) attachment...

What oven do you use and are you injecting air into the chamber? Are you using the recommended burnout schedule for Plasticast?

The quality of those castings is amazing. I gotta go back and read up on your methods/techniques. ;-)

Re: How to enable STL file thumbnails in Windows File Explorer

It depends on how the renderer sets the camera position relative to the XYZ coordinates of your model.

I think I'd prefer third-person to a first-person view anyway. Can't really see much if you look at it from the objects point of view. ;-)

Re: Prestige Optima and Boric Acid

Thanks Sochin for the info. I read online about someone who used 1% by investment weight, but they didn't say if they dissolved it in the water or not. I mixed it with the powder and then mixed it with my water. Everything looked fine for the first 5 minutes, then it started getting a little thick a...

Prestige Optima and Boric Acid

On my last cast, I tried to mix 1% by investment weight boric acid into a 38:100 mixture of Prestige Optima. The room temperature was approximate 64°F, so my investment water was at that temperature. When I mixed it, the working time of the investment is usually 8-9 minutes, but it had dropped such ...

Re: Casting and Curing Tips for Easycast HD

Hard to say. In the past, when I saw brown it was due to incomplete combustion of the resin, like a residue, not necessarily ash, but other byproducts like nitrogen dioxide or something. I cast in my studio and I have burnouts do weird things even though I am using the same program on the kiln, the ...

Re: Casting and Curing Tips for Easycast HD

Where was your print located on the main sprue? Is the burnt side on the outside of the flask or more towards the interior?
