Did you remodel it or did you use the game models?
I tried to make a Starcraft 2 chess set, and tried to import and print the game models directly, but they looked horrible, too low polygon count and details...

Any chance you have some sc2 models to share?

Hi Craig,
This is so cool, Unbelievable what the B9 can produce with the right resin!
I wish I could paint like Brumbaer....I wish I had the time..

A quick question for the forum members. I'm getting ready to order the B9 so that I can print parts for model ship kits that I produce and sell. I would like to develop ship's pulleys for model ship kits. Such pulleys are very tiny but I know that the B9 can print them.

Here's my question. I'd like to print such pulley's in a light brown or tan color. Can anyone recommend a resin that is either already in these colors or that has available tints to create these colors.

Thanks,

Bob

Hi all, my first successful print, a 4mm/1 foot scale tank locomotive body, design by Tebee Models via Shapeways - https://www.shapeways.com/model/535540/ ... -loco.html

I'd used automatic supports on this first attempt, in future I'll manually apply them as I think less were needed and some additional ones would have been handy on the chimney.

Printed on a v1.2 machine 30xy 30z and Cherry / Red 1:1 mix

Nice looking train, I think I will try to grow one and cast it in Aluminum :) Should be able to do it.
Be cool to make it in individual parts so it is functional.

Really nice print for a large item.

Thanks, yeah I'm pretty happy considering that's the first print, it's even better than I thought. Future locos that I print will be in component form however to get more detail and larger parts.

Some further tests with 1:1 mix on some of my railway related items. This is a pair of whistles on a mounting bracket, printed 30xy and 30z. The pinkish flecks I think are traces of Tacky Wax residue on my tweezers, I'd need some magnifying glasses to remove them as the ultrasonic didn't deal with them, but they only appear under macro lens.

Dimensions are 3mm x 1.5mm x 5.7mm

Hi robert, these were printed straight off the build table without supports. The resin was from a new batch of 1:1 mix

Ahhh... so you found a way to make the B9 print in 4 dimensions... impressive :!: :!:
:idea: If that's the case, it must have been a black hole it showed!

I wish it had been a black hole. I spray paint the walls black, so nobody would have realized the black hole being there.
Lookin back, I think it had not been a hole, but a rift. A rift in time space continuum, because it sucked up a lot of time.

Do you think the print quality can be improved upon Robert or is it the post-processing that is introducing the small flecks?

I would rinse the model in Isopropyl and then just put in the ultrasonic for 10 min. Do not brush the surface with a brush like a toothbrush, this will ruin the print. Rinse with Iso, Soap & water in the ultrasonic, and blow dry or air dry then cure.

HI Robert, I've had better results on today's prints, rinsing in water, ultrasonic in soapy warm water and blow dry before UV. Would you still recommend using Isopropyl for the initial rinse?

Yes, the Iso does help to remove uncured resin. Just doesn't get into all the small nooks and cranies. Ultrasonic is great for that.

My Best,
