Re: Curing Unit

I think someone suggested a coffee can with the LED light strips wrapped around it would be a good and relatively inexpensive solution too. I made one. It takes a REAL long time to properly cure the emerald material. It probably takes 1.5 to 2 hours for a good casting. And my can gets really hot. B...

Re: Solus Wax Resin

We have a heavy duty curing unit we got when we purchased an envisiontec machine several years ago. Crazy thing is the part was only in there for about 4 minutes. Needless to say this will be the first and last time we attempt to cure this resin in that unit. :lol: Yep. I have 3 of those Otoflash u...

No offense but I never really understood this ideology. Once the build plate's 20µm from the film I'm pretty sure it's covered with material already. Am I missing something?

Re: Solus Wax Resin

20um 48x27 all=5 bottom=38 That's good to know. I couldnt help but notice that my parts would easily slide right off the build plate with the default burn-in. So I amped mine up an extra 10 seconds for the 25µm slice burn in. Problem is, I didnt juice it up for the rest of the build. I think my iss...

Re: Solus Wax Resin

That's kinda what I was thinking. About 6 months ago we replaced the lamp but (unknowingly) bought one of those chinese knockoffs on amazon for $90. Big fail. It'll print the simple stuff...emerald, PIC, etc. Looks like SolusWax needs some high quality milliwattage. lol

Re: Solus Wax Resin

This stuff is challenging to print with. This is as far as my parts get. After the first couple of initial layers, nothing.

I just changed the film and restarted the job btw. So hopefully I get some parts out of this.

Re: Solus Wax Resin

Yep. Got it! Only took me about 3 hours to get my offline PC onto our company wifi. LOL. Working now!! Those loooong burn ins are crazy! This material must be loaded with wax. I might have to do the "lighter test". Clean it, cure it, burn it with a lighter. If it liquifies, MONEY. If it sm...

Re: 4K

Didn't RioGrande pickup the B9 series printers? I cant imagine the founder is losing money in that case.

Re: Not Sure whats going on

Man, I'm always leary of a support near the shoulder or head of a ring that attaches all the way down to the floor. I know it's probably fine....but in my tiny walnut, it's not safe. My methodology is that anything past the 2 o'clock and 10 o'clock positions I try to support elements of the ring bac...
