Re: Another casting issue thread

Mwm,

We use F-Series Roselli Stilt #10. They fit a 2.5" flask just right.

Machine Specific Multiplier and 1:1 Mix test

I'm with TAJS. I know Mike has his hands full right now but having the 1:1 mix be a default material that works both with MSM and bulb life compensation would be ideal.

R&R Investment?

bvw, I have used both Satincast and Plasticast. Have gone back and forth several times looking for the best skin. Currently using Satincast. Haven't used R&R Solitaire yet. Of course I have to wonder if it can handle temps greater than 1350F.

Machine Specific Multiplier and 1:1 Mix test

Very nice comparison Kai. This might convince me to stopping using straight Cherry and do a 1:1 mix. Not only do you get longer PDMS life and faster grows, but the burnout of this hybrid is probably better than it's Cherry counterpart (less ash). All of those benefits with what appears to be near id...

Recent prints....

Awesome work all the way around TAJS. Do you mind sharing your settings for these grows? Also, what do you do to prefinish the resins? We are polishing with a iso-alcohol soaked qtip and then using the dry end to smooth out as many steps as we can pre-curing.

Cherry Casting - 1st Try

Quote from TAJS on September 10, 2014, 14:23 Looks great! Congrats! Why is top filled in where the center stone goes? Tajs, for some reason when I grew the model, it was filled in. There may have been an issue with the stl. It was my very first cherry model. Four of the scrolls didn't completely gr...

Cherry Casting - 1st Try

Alright, here are 4 pieces, 14k White, all straight Cherry. Tim was right and I should have started the program sooner and not let the flasks sit out so long to dry. My next flask curing time will be between 4 and 6 hours before the burnout is started. Observations: 1. It appears the 4 holes in the ...

Cherry Casting - 1st Try

Tim and Robert, I went with what you guys said and drilled 4 1/4" holes into the bottom of the kiln. Hopefully they introduce more air for tonight's burnout (it should only get better right?!?) and I see less ash and staining. I also increased the top end from 2 hours to 3 hours. I like the pump ide...

Cherry Casting - 1st Try

So just cast my third trial using the Cherry resin in Satincast. We are definitely on to something here as this would be a usable cast. Several observations: 1. As you can see in the photo, the resin has stained the mold. My very first casting with straight Red resin left a similar stain in Satincas...

Cherry Casting - 1st Try

Thanks guys for the feedback. Yeah, I was pretty pissed about the blasting. I have no idea what he was thinking and I've been giving him a hard time since. With that said, I would love to be at all places in the business at once, micromanaging everything, but we all know how that works:) After some ...

Cherry Casting - 1st Try

We invested the same Cherry prototype today using Talladium's Galaxy 2 investment. As I mentioned before, we also cured this model for 8 hours. I would say we have a success! It appears there was no investment breakdown and no ash residue left in the mold, even with a same day burnout. Max temp was ...

Cherry Casting - 1st Try

Thanks fcort for the settings. I have cast straight Red once with some minor defects in Satin Cast using the same burnout I posted above. I'm guessing with a little more curing and a lesser water ratio, I could get Red to cast near my wax results. The oven is definitely reaching temperature or at le...

Cherry Casting - 1st Try

Hi all, Just wanted to share my first casting try with Cherry. Not so good. I used Plasticast with my standard Satincast 20 burnout. As you can see the result is unusable. The button and sprues turned out smooth like they always do. I think I need to cure the models much longer given the investment ...

Software not turning on/off projector

Sorry to hear that. After the new PCB, the first print went through almost flawlessly. Waiting on the Cherry resin to get here and then more prints.

Hi all,

Just to update the thread with the solution. It was the PCB. Mike contacted me, sent me a new one, and all is working fine.

Thanks for replying Mike. I disconnected and reconnected all connections. Power and video signal are definitely getting to projector - Press power button once to turn on. This works - Press power button twice to turn off. This works. - I can see my mouse pointer moving on the projection Disconnected...

Software not turning on/off projector

Hi all, Just purchased a new hd b9 and can't wait to get it fired up. I am running the functional printer test and I can't get the software to power on the projector. After Step 7, the status comes back with a Command: A061 Failed Any ideas? http://www.b9c.com/forum/files/uploads/2014/08/4o1fl-scree...
