Re: third party resin for Core 550

The printer treats every layer differently, part of our patented method for increasing print speed.

The old vat tech is not compatible with the Core series vat.

Re: third party resin for Core 550

Color is not important, it's just a color that's displayed on the screen that typically matches the resin color. Slice thickness should be self explanatory, it's just the thickness of each layer formed as you print. Typically the thicker the layer, the lower the "Z" resolution, but the fas...

Re: Slate Starter Settings

You're correct, Black would be a good starting point. Then tweak the exposure times.

Re: X acxis motor

I have the same question. I ordered a new X axis motor. I assume installation instructions will come with it. If not, when I affix the top arm onto the motor shaft, what position should the arm be in when I tighten the allen screws? Should the tray be engaged into the sensor at the end or should th...

Re: Surface Roughness

Sorry you are having this issue! This is not a software issue, this is typically due to small light haze on the glass in the printer, it doesn't take much. If cleaning the glass inside the printer doesn't fix this, contact support.

Re: DUPLICATE FILES

This is normal. You created a layout with specific .stl file. Then you changed that .stl file. The layout can't help if you change the .stl file it was originally based upon. If you export a layout with multiple .stl's and supports then it becomes a single .stl file. You can open it in a new layout ...

Re: Print Fail - Lamp Issue

If the projector shuts off due to a hardware issue, the lights should blink a "code". Look at the lights on the projector and note if/how they blink after this issue happens.

Blink codes:

Re: Files added to flash drive not detected on B9 530

Thank you so must for the quick reply. It’s prongtest.cpj_30xy_30z.cpj.b9j So, this is not a .cpj file (in other words, the file name does not end in ".cpj") and that's why you won't see it. I'm not sure how the name became so mangled? It looks like it should simply be called "prongt...

Re: Files added to flash drive not detected on B9 530

It may take a few seconds to show the contents after the USB drive is plugged in. If you have sub-directories on the flash, make sure you're in the correct one. It will only show files ending in *.cpj. What is the name of the *.cpj file? on the flash drive?

Re: Issue updating B9 -1.2

Just means the software can't connect to the update site. Could be an issue with your internet connection or something between the server and your ISP.

Re: 110v plug

Both the projector and the power supply should work at 220-240 vAC.
The power supply shipped with several swapable plugs so it can be used in almost any country. The projector just needs a standard computer like cord for your country, that should plug into the projector.

Re: printing failed, please help!

How is the condition of the vat? Is the PDMS getting cloudy? I don't really think that's the issue, but it something to check. If the vat coating is fine, try a print with the Machine Specific Multiplier set to 1.5 It looks a bit underexposed, but only later in the print after the lamp has been on f...

Re: b9 creator ver 1.2

By setting them both to 0.95, you are basically saying that your grid calibration was about 5% too small. That's not much and it's hard to see even using the plastic grid pattern. Normally one might be set to 1.0 and another axis .95, for example, really meant to correct any errors in the projected ...

Re: Serious Settings Issue

Changing MSM will only affect the size a small amount, most of the size error comes from the overall image size not quite right (calibration of zoom).

Re: b9 creator ver 1.2

You say it's off, but you don't say by how much. You say the image is sharp (that's good!) but you don't say if it was exactly the correct size.
It's hard to what to suggest without knowing the error amount.

Re: b9 creator ver 1.2

How far off is it? It might be the projected image isn't the right size and you need to recalibrate that first.
