Thank you for your ongoing support!

It's all too often people make complaints but for some reason have a harder time to stop and say thank you, you did a great job. We've used B9 since the beginning and no matter what issue, large or small, their customer support is unsurpassed. Never had I felt so confident to recommend a company tha...

Re: Formlabs Castable Wax Resin Settings on B9 Core

Very true Robert, thank you. We've maintained our 'normal' burnout schedule that we were using for hand carved waxes. I don't do the castings in my shop. The detail is surprisingly very crisp even showing 0.6mm milgrain. We were using the emerald and the yellow resins previously. Both seemed slightl...

Re: Formlabs Castable Wax Resin Settings on B9 Core

It casts wonderfully, I did a casting on another ring. Cost is on their website, I'm just here to share the settings for those who wish to try it out for themselves.

It contains wax and there is NO post cure. Just clean with 99% IPA for 10 minutes, no more no less.

Re: Formlabs Castable Wax Resin Settings on B9 Core

Sure thing! A bit hard to see because it's dark, but it's capable of some very nice prints.

Re: New Vat; PDMS leaks through waterfall

I've also just started having this problem. I've re coated PDMS more than a few times now and this just started happening. Not sure why the resin is getting under the PDMS layer but as soon as I see the fogging, I know what's happened. It's a super pain to clean off the window but it can be done. An...

Z axis motor issues after Seizure

In the beginning I received the machine, put it together, got it working fairly well. Then had a minor problem with the X motor and had to remove one of the bolts from the slide tray assembly so that I could fix it. The bolt got stuck in the removal (how I have no idea, it went in fine...) and the b...

Re: One side of the print lifting

I think that did the trick. I increased my MSM as Randy suggested, just a bit, and voila a very nice print. I'll keep tweaking to perfect results but I think I've got this now so thank you all for your help.

Re: One side of the print lifting

Hi all, Thank you for the tips. The last publish of photos was after a new video re-calibration and focusing. But to take it into acoount again, I re-re-calibrated everything. I leveled the machine and leveled the projector, re-focused the projector to the grid. I just did 2 test runs and the same r...

Hello again everyone, I've done some tweaking and here are my settings now. http://i.imgur.com/BQPLT9k.jpg Things were going pretty well with the test calibration at 30 and 30 using cherry. http://i.imgur.com/cf2AU64.jpg?1 Until I tried a few real prints.

Re: One side of the print lifting

Hi Mike and Hannahrdd, I will refocus on my next run just to make sure. The last run seemed pretty close. :) I had leveled the projector in the beginning to try to alleviate the issues of balance from my first set-up. But it turns out it's still out of balance so I'm adjusting as needed. Again thank...

Re: One side of the print lifting

http://i.imgur.com/hm7TSOf.jpg OK So I've been thinking it's probably just the cure on the one side. So I've increased my Balance to .3 and this was my result. I think that's all it was. I'll continue to adjust the balance and fade until I receive my needed results. Thanks again for the tips. The p...

One side of the print lifting

Hi,

I'm having trouble identifying why only one side (B+) of my print is lifting off the build table. I've calibrated the build table numerous times but with no good results to speak of.

I'm at factory settings right now for this print.

Any suggestions?

Thank you,
Bruce

Re: Partial supports 1:1

Hi,

We just bought the latest B9 and I've been having the same issues. Partial or non-printing supports.
I'm still trying a few things mentioned here but just wanted to say thank you all for the tips. I'll keep an eye on this post and let you know if anything works for me.

Cheers
