Nice seeing you in Vegas this past week.
Yes, the recoating thread you linked is the procedure I used. 34 gms of Sylgaard, 3.4 gms (give or take) of hardener, the black plastic dam about 1/4" away from the glass, cooked for 1 hr at 160 F (at least that's what my oven says), and then next morning, I cut the pdms off the dam with an exacto knife. This gives me a nice, sharp, smooth edge.
Yes, I'm using all the default settings. I'm software experimentation averse, so I hardly ever change anything.
I just dipped my finger in the vat (it's currently full of cherry) and felt around for the pdms lip. It's nice and sharp. No raised portion at all.
I've reloaded the v1.8 software, and am thinking of trying again. But should I change the "subsequent overlift?" Seems prudent...
