Z axis Linear Bearing Upgrade

Thanks Robert.
Once I get my bearings (no pun intended) I will start up again.
I will no doubt have some questions, but as I saw in a different thread
the forthcomming documentation will be a welcome addition.

Z axis Linear Bearing Upgrade

I had given up on the B9 a year ago as I had never gotten a sucessful print
due to z axis issues.
I have now decided to give it a try again, and am glad to see this thread.
Just ordered the bearings.
Looking forward to actually getting some prints I can cast!

Lost-Wax Casters - Resources for a Beginner?

Peregrine, Regarding melting metals, most jewelry casting (gold, silver, bronze, nickle-silver alloy ) can be melted with an air/acetylene torch. Using oxygen is not necessary. here is a link for a fairly standard jewelry torch http://www.amazon.com/Uniweld-K37-Acetylene-Handle-Connect/dp/B008BH5TSW...

Tried to replace PDMS with liquid glycerin... well, take a look :)

I think with the right liquid as a base the lift would not need to have a lift followed by a drop back down. a simple lift would be sufficient and the advantage being less turbulence, no bubbles created and a faster settle time. (not to mention as the direction being only up, the backlash is no long...

Tried to replace PDMS with liquid glycerin... well, take a look :)

While most probably see this as a dismal failure, I see it as a very positive first attempt! Yes there are issues to work out for sure, but it seems like it might mean glycerine might not be the perfect bath but the basic premise of a "inert" transparent medium with a higher density to float the liq...

Tried to replace PDMS with liquid glycerin... well, take a look :)

Hi, I had wondered the same after seeing the peachy. the question i have is was the test sucessful? I don't see a printed article. If so, i think a software solution would make sense as just moving the z would be necessary. If that in fact is a workable solution it would considerably speed cycle tim...

MAKE Magazine Review

I looked at the make magazine reviews of b9 and form 1
the one indisputable fact is the picture of the same model
at the same size, the b9 print looks way better.

Resin that can be Plated

in order to electroplate you need the following. a conductive surface on the object to be plated (graphite powder would accomplish this) the object to be plated and the surface coating (if needed/present) need to be able to withstand a caustic (generally acidic) solution. many plating solutions are ...

DO NOT BUY B9 PRODUCTS

I have been looking at the resin printers for a while and at this time the Form1 and the b9 are the two that are getting reasonable results for the lost wax caster audience. (b9 the clear winner IMHO) B9 forums have a timely response, and from what I have seen Mike (or other forum posters) give hone...

CarterCG, That link is a pretty good overview of sculptris. I think it is a great application. I have spent many hours using it and overall I think it is great. Like many applications I have encountered a few problems that need to be looked out for. Sculptris on occasion will create what i call Knot...

3D Sculpting Software

I use the following stuff which are free, Sculptris is very powerful, and has a really reasonable learning curve. also I use truespace 5 which is a old program. This is a great program once you get acclimated to it. you should export to .asc or it will add planes if you save as other formats. I conv...
