Re: Contour Feature Requests

Small thing, but I would really like a mirror tool in Contour, including the set up of supports. I often get 2 parts on models that are just mirrored and I have to spend quite some time setting up each side.

Re: New Aluminum Resin Tank

Good idea mixing with your finger and a glove.

The tall vat is also great, what a good service. I'm quite happy with my shorter one, but great to see that Reify can do that.

Re: Warping in Print (Z)

I really wish I was printing rings!

I'm printing miniature figurines.

However, I WILL check if the print head is level, thank you for your advice.

I really wish there was a consolidated troubleshooting and user manual PDF! :)

Re: Warping in Print (Z)

Hmm tried with tighter film and also wayyyy more supports. Same issue and the amount of supports has increased the amount that break, making lots of issues with the surface of the print... :cry: I heard from another Solus user today that you can calibrate the build head plate. I have never ever done...

Re: Warping in Print (Z)

Hey there,

I read elsewhere that it might be that it's too loose. I just put new film on again a bit tighter this time.

Thanks for your advice! Really appreciate the support you folks give.

Warping in Print (Z)

Hey guys, So I have done all the scaling checks, calibration etc on the printer and have found that my prints are coming out warped. https://scontent-lhr3-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t35.18174-12/s2048x2048/31028334_10160339377930707_36566564_o.jpg?_nc_cat=0&oh=a921d7bf8b4b38c777b95f94f2ef81c5&oe=5AE46...

Re: Projector "Lens Shift" Tight

I have the same issue, I think.

Would be nice to know what the issue is.

Re: Lubricant for Z-Screw

Every 4-6 months. I run the printer around 14-16 hours a day usually.
