Re: Tethon porcelain resin

Won't hurt the vat itself but the particles may scratch the surface of the PDMS and if it does it will cause the light to be deflected or scattered and may give u a failed print. Worst case is u have to re coat the vat.

Re: Duravat

If it was damaged when u got it just return it for replacement. If u damaged it then send it anyway and let then see what u did to it.

Re: Tethon porcelain resin

If you use the ceramic material on a Core machine and u scratch the surface of the DuraVat it will be toast. Not covered by warranty. May cost u 1k for a new vat.

Re: Formlabs Castable Wax Resin Settings on B9 Core

Has to be your caster. Myself and many others cast the green and yellow almost daily with great results. I am now using Ultravest Max and love the low dust and smooth surface I get. Since I cast using a 35 yr old broken arm casting "machine" (prob cost $250.00 at the time) and a small 8 x ...

Re: Formlabs Castable Wax Resin Settings on B9 Core

Had u cast B9 Emerald or yellow before this. Are u using the same burnout as before or a different reg wax burnout? Post your burnout schedule please for the new purple stuff. All castable resins contain wax, just a question of how much. More wax equals longer print times and usually some loss of fi...

Re: VAT, PDMS and other annoyances

I would mix 60ml and try that. On my vats the PDMS only goes about 1/2 inch to 3/4 past the overflow point.

Re: VAT, PDMS and other annoyances

Do not use dynamic vat positioning. If your PDMS is lifting then I would like to see a screen capture of your layout with supports on a typical model u are trying to print. There should be no vertical force on the PDMS as the vat sliding motion and subsequent layer release should make that a mute po...

Re: VAT, PDMS and other annoyances

First, what resin are u using for printing. U should only use soap and water for initial cleaning and only ISO alcohol and micro fiber cloth for final cleaning of the vat widow. I have had some vats for over three yrs with no scratches. PDMS has to be level and fully cured. It takes 48 hrs if curing...

Re: Resin film or residue with the prints

You could save a ton of resin by reducing the number of supports. Most of those u don't need.

Re: Emerald Resin Casting Issues

It's not a minus number. It want's you to ramp at 2degrees C per minute.
