RESOLVED: Increase of MSM after v1.8.4 update?

Hi all, Just confirming that the v1.8.5 update and unckecking the bleed control has resolved this problem! Thanks for adding that fix, I really appreciate it. One slight oddity remains after upgrading again, the first 2 layers appear to print thinner than before - any ideas? Only noticed this on 30x...

Re: Increase of MSM after v1.8.4 update?

BTW Alan, sorry if I have hijacked your thread. It sounds like we may be suffering from the same issue with hopefully a common solution. No worries at all, I hope we can get to the bottom of it together. As I've now a backlog of prints to get through I can't experiment at the moment, but I've a spa...

Re: Increase of MSM after v1.8.4 update?

I can confirm that reverting to v1.8.0 has solved it. The problem has been during my testing, the calibration grid prints fine in v1.8.0 and v1.8.4, so after I initially recalibrated thinking it was an error in my build table calibration, I upgraded back to v1.8.4 straight away and didn't test furth...

Re: [RESOLVED:USER ERROR] Increase of MSM after v1.8.4 update?

It does seem that way doesn't it - though I was running v1.8.3 fine previously. I've not tried going back to v1.8.0 again yet, I may do that next. Just put MSM up to 1.7 only a slight change, certainly not the big difference you would expect from 1.25 up to 1.7. I've also a spare lamp, to rule that ...

Re: [RESOLVED:USER ERROR] Increase of MSM after v1.8.4 update?

HI Mike, yes focused checked but I know what you mean - most of the time it is something so obvious you miss it. Today I've printed about another 5 calibration prints, stepping up MSM each time as they were all under size. They are almost perfect, still under size, but sharp and crisp. Increasing MS...

Increase of MSM after v1.8.4 update?

Hi Robert, Thanks for the input, I do use that method. It looks that I spoke too soon about this being resolved, though I am getting good calibration prints I still cannot print the finer details that I've been achieving these last 6 months. I also finding that for no obvious reason that I've had to...

Re: [RESOLVED:USER ERROR] Increase of MSM after v1.8.4 update?

I can now confirm 100% that this was a calibration error which by chance happened at the same time I upgraded. Thanks for the help guys, especially the note about the changes made in 1.8.1 - that made me look at everything else and not just the software. Just upgraded back to v1.8.4 and v216 and hav...

Re: [FIX IN PROG] Increase of MSM after v1.8.4 update?

Looking at this with fresh eyes today I'm 90% sure it is a problem I've introduced and that the upgrade to v1.8.4 was coincidental. I've recalibrated everything this morning, had the unit on the worktop to ensure everything is coplanar (it was slightly out), recalibrated the projector and recalibrat...

Re: Increase of MSM after v1.8.4 update?

Hmm interesting, I can't for the life of me think what else has changed though. Clean install of v1.8.0 and v213 firmware has made no change. I use a finer detail calibration print model which prints well, except for the 0.2mm pegs which nearly all fail. The thickness of the calibration print base i...

Re: Increase of MSM after v1.8.4 update?

I've uninstalled v1.8.4 and reinstalled v1.8.0, also setting firmware back to v213. So far there doesn't appear to be any difference, the prints are identical as far as I can tell. I've just uninstalled again and removed all traces from registry & appdata, I'll reinstall clean and see how things...

Re: Increase of MSM after v1.8.4 update?

Hi Robert, Tom Thanks for that, it must be the issue. I need to roll back to 1.8.3 urgently, or if possible disable z bleed correction. Around 75% of my products no longer print correctly since the update. This will teach me not to update without testing first...!! I've an exhibition to print stock ...

Re: Increase of MSM after v1.8.4 update?

After doing some more experimenting, I think this actually is happening on both my machines, but as I print larger items at 50xy on the other I've not noticed it as clearly. It seems that the new method of projecting the slices as fade in is affecting the ability to print very very fine detail in th...

Increase of MSM after v1.8.4 update?

Hi guys, I'm experiencing a problem with one of my v1.2 B9's after the recent v1.8.4 update. When calibrating using 1:1 Mix I've found that I've had to increase MSM from 1.25 pre update to at least 1.35 in order to get anything to print near the correct size. Could this be coincidence? My other mach...

Re: Model Railway Components and 3D Scanned Figures

Hi All,

Time for an update, this time with some of the finished product. My customers now regularly send me photos of their work, some of which is unbelievably good!

These are all 1:76th scale, about 22mm / 3/4" tall

Re: Prints just started to fail - do I need a new lamp?

Hi Robert, I've experimented a little further with this. The v1.2 calibration grid didn't fail quite as badly, but it did start to peel slightly in the same area where the other prints were failing. F- pegs are 1.9-2.0mm whereas F+ pegs at the perimeter are 1.2-1.6mm. The B9Creator text is missing a...
