Re: Projector failed error

I'm still having this problem, Are you running thru a VGA cable like me or HDMI. Robert suggests HDMI but my laptop doesn't have. If your also using VGA then I'll try a different computer with HDMI, otherwise I'll have to revert back to older software. I'm running through VGA, again the laptop I'm ...

Re: Projector failed error

I've backdated to 1.7.3 and the associated firmware (2.05?) and just had a successful print. No projector errors in over 4 hours, so it does appear to be related to the update.

Re: Projector failed error

I've now tried resetting it several times and it's made no difference. I've tried turning the anti virus software off, but it's also made no difference. Is anything logged anywhere that might give me a clue where to start looking? All the connections are fine as everything restarts fine once I resta...

Re: Projector failed error

I'm having the same problem on my 1.1 machine, running the latest firmware, controlled through a laptop running XP. It's only been doing it since the update - I've not seen this before. There's no pattern to when it happens, sometimes it happens after 20 minutes, sometimes a couple of hours. Sometim...

Having trouble getting Prints to Stick to The Build Table

It also dissolves if you forget that you've left the build platform in IPA and discover it about a week later.

Sylgard 184 availability & replacements

Quote from akgold on November 10, 2014, 14:48 oh I forgot to mention I have removed the wiper as well. There is no need for it. Whilst I understand that coating doesn't need oxygenating, like PDMS, isn't a good idea to retain the sweeper to clear any loose bits from the build area? I'm looking forw...

PDMS heat curing

Quote from Arno-Millenaar on October 28, 2014, 17:59 @Centaur Can you share what 'alternative' you are using for the Sylgard and what the results are so far. Especially the resistance against 'fogging' is interesting to know. (I know this subject should be in a different thread) QSIL216. It doesn't...

PDMS heat curing

I just use our domestic oven (when my wife is out ;) ) I cook it for about an hour at 100, although I'm not using Sylgard, but an alternative. I'm still using the original, waterfall, coating method - the cliff method doesn't seem to bring any advantages, and is a lot more fiddly. I'm going to try c...

New prints!!

I like the results you've got with the grey resin - what are the physical properties like? Is it quite fast curing?

I had a look on the FTD website, but couldn't see anything on there that seemed to match.

Software v1.7.2

Quote from mikej on August 21, 2014, 04:33
If it's related to power management it should. It should also help with certain Windows XP lost comm issues, if that was your OS?

I like the sound of that! Will give it a go and report back.

Thanks Mike. It's definitely the laptop that I was using, as I'm currently using my wife's laptop and that's working fine. I wonder whether something's not right with the old laptop - this problem only started the other week, and it was fine before that. I've tried a different port and had the same ...

It's an NVIDIA Quadro FX Go 1400. I'll try turning the projector on manually, to see if that makes a difference, but I don't think so as my problem only happens during the print, it starts off fine. The USB logging has thrown something up, in as much as something seems to happen right before it stop...

I use the oven at home (making sure my wife is out for at least an hour :) ) About an hour at 100 C works for me.

About print deformed and PDMS layer

The exposure times for the Red are way too long for MJ resins, from memory they only need a couple of seconds per layer.

I spoke too soon, as it happens. Despite not allowing the USB ports to be powered down, I still lost communication during the last print, despite the one before being perfect! I've now edited the registry to disable selective suspend permanently, so will see if that makes a difference. I'm also runn...
