Sorry missed that........I would still suggest you try to get success at casting wax before trying to trouble shoot resins.......and also switch to Solus Wax Pro.

Re: First Time Casting

Is it possible to try cast B9 Emerald so we can rule things out? Good idea......or try casting some good old wax to rule investment issues or general casting issues out to a large degree ......seeing as the OP is new to casting and it may be easier to get wax than B9 resins here in Australia. I wou...

Re: solus wax burnout

what size are your flasks? 2 1/4 inch diameter. I had some taller ones made that are about 4 inches tall but the others are about as tall as they are in diameter. Might be one of the reasons I have success as I usually cast small flasks. I am usually casting 3- 5 flasks that size at a time. Good lu...

Instructions attached to this post. None came with my bottle either. Reify emailed it to me. Happier to have a pdf anyway.

Re: solus wax burnout

I just do it today and the top of my flask was broken, with soluswax pro so i have some doubts: 1. The ramping straight from 80F to 1450F in 1.5hrs was too fast?? 2. Or my kiln it's not enough calibrate and maybe is more than 1450F? Regards I have been casting the Solus Wax Pro for a couple of mont...

Re: ***Totally Stoked!!***

Yes still using the Emerald resin because I have had zero issues with it. I am not much on change if something works!! :mrgreen: I am like that as well. If B9 had not shut down the sale of their resins in Australia by a 3rd party I would still be casting B9 Cherry. Unable to buy B9 resins locally a...

Thanks, I might try that if I can`t mix it back in. For now I can usually mix it back in cold in a couple of minutes.

Re: So what is up with SolusWax Pro?

I think the directions said to extend the burnout another hour or two with heaver prints. I haven't tried it either so I will have to give it a go. Give it a go if you have not already Ron. Pretty much only doing the fast ramp now. Print, invest, stand for 90 minutes and then ramp straight up. Depe...

Re: Disappearing supports!

This happens a lot. And its really annoying coz you never know is the all supports there after moving/copying object or merging a scene. I have had this happen to me recently as well Mikkopee. Pretty sure this did not happen in some of the earlier versions. I just upgraded to 2.3.6 to get the Solus...

Re: So what is up with SolusWax Pro?

I cover it with a piece of cardboard and on top of the cardboard are some packets of silica gel absorbent. I just stir it up with the spatula and start printing. Thanks for the info Jewelermdt. I live in a really humid climate so have always sealed my trays after use as I started with an Asiga and ...
