Re: VAT, PDMS and other annoyances

How much material are u mixing and pouring? Sounds like not bonding to surface. Robert Howle I think it was like 66ml total (I followed the video instructions from his site) and agreed, it does seem like it didn't bond with the surface, which I would expect if it wasn't clean but I did clean it tho...

Re: VAT, PDMS and other annoyances

Do not use dynamic vat positioning. If your PDMS is lifting then I would like to see a screen capture of your layout with supports on a typical model u are trying to print. There should be no vertical force on the PDMS as the vat sliding motion and subsequent layer release should make that a mute p...

Re: VAT, PDMS and other annoyances

Sorry... a couple more questions. Do you use the Dynamic VAT Positioning option? Also, do you turn off the grid during printing? I have to re-look, but am pretty sure Dynamic is off by default and grid is on by default?

Re: VAT, PDMS and other annoyances

Hi Robert, I was using emerald over the last couple years, though I didn't do a lot of printing. I'm not looking to become proficient printing, using black resin, for the purposes of learning mold making and wax injection. I did thoroughly clean the VATs I recoated with soap and water which I why I ...

VAT, PDMS and other annoyances

I've got to admit, the VAT design on the B9 is a significant annoyance that has had me put my B9 up for sale a couple times and if it weren't for the horrid resale value of these, it would have been gone. Now that that's off my chest, I'm really trying to learn how to use this thing now, but the VAT...

Re: Position and supports

Most impressive results! I wonder what equipment they used to achieve them? I don't know what the equipment is but they print in wax (not resin) and then traditional lost wax casting. I've had them do other pieces but they weren't consistent across two orders so I'm about to try out a casting house...

Re: Position and supports

Good luck getting that lettering to come out! Not sure what the actual size of the medallion is but even at the size shown I doubt the word "revelation" would print or cast well. I'm just now getting to recalibrating my build table after putting in the new motor but I did send off the med...

Re: Position and supports

Hi Lobby! Thank you very much for the help! The screen prints are probably a bit confusing, but it's only two pieces. The first four pics are rotated views of the same crucifix, starting with the back of it (the more plain side) and the second four are the same medallion, again with the back shown f...

Re: Process aborted... motor no longer works

Alright, I'm back in business. Thanks for the help.

So now I need to learn how to use this thing... it's too intimidating but I'm sure it's because I'm still clueless.

Any advice would be appreciated. viewtopic.php?f=18&t=7513

Position and supports

Yep... I'm still a beginner after over a year (only about 90 hours on my printer) and could really use help demystifying the positioning and support process. How would you position these and what type of supports would you use and where? I understand the general concept that anything hanging below/u...

Re: Process aborted... motor no longer works

Hi Bob, You can call me If you need help once you get your motor.When you do, Just plug the motor in and test it before installing it in the machine. Taking the control board out is just a pain if you have to do it. Hi Daniel (I realized who you are after looking at your profile!), I plugged in the...

Re: Process aborted... motor no longer works

It only affected the X motor... at first the X motor sounded like it was the problem... It barely made it through a simple print, then it stopped. I have a spare wired up to use in case of a problem. Instead of taking everything apart, I simply plugged in the back up motor and it would not run well...

Re: Process aborted... motor no longer works

Hi Bob, I meant the main control board under and on the right side. The sticking I was referring to was the vat had a hard time sliding without some personal assistance in the beginning of the print... eventually, it caused problems to my control board and it had to be replaced.I do a lot of experi...

Re: Process aborted... motor no longer works

This is probably the circuit board that fried...I have had that happen a couple times. Mostly when I had things stick to the vat and I had to push start the vat to get it working...I have a spare motor with wiring ready to test and a spare board just in case. Something on the board goes bad ... not...
