Very nice.. I'll have to save up for one of these. I currently use a nail curing UV lamp and usually leave prints in there for 5 to 6 hours minimum just to be 100% sure its properly cured. This unit will be a huge time saver.

Are there any distributors in Canada btw?

A quick question.
Considering the depth of color between green, Reds, and Black
is there any difference in length of time to cure the different
resins?

I am pretty sure that all the resins cure at the same rate. I only tested green curing. If there was a difference I'm sure it would have been noted.

Does this work for other Resins such as Formlabs Castable... Or Makerjuice Waxcast?

Is the curing time significantly increased if not cured in water? (Supposedly Makerjuice Waxcast has some water soluble components)

U don't have to use the water. It does speed cuing of the suface in particular. I am sure the model cure should work on most or all DlP resins.

I'll make u a deal. If u purchase from me and it wont' significantly reduce your curing time, I'll take it back (less the postage)

It should affect all resins, but the resin it will affect most is the resin that cures closest to the NM output of the machine. So if all B 9 materials are designed to cure quickly at 405nm and the box is 405nm those would cure fastest. I am not sure what the curing range is of the Unit. If I am wrong, please correct me... thats just how I understand the process.
Ok Robert, Send me a Bill ... Sold one to RaceCar :-)

Ok Daniel.

The output of the LED array is 390 to 410 nm.

Forgot to meniton with regards to the water soluable resin question above. I did testing using mineral oil instead of water and got the same results with curing times. Might work for your resin assuming the wave length works for your photopolymer.

Again, I'll take it back if it doesn't save u hrs per day.

How many items at a time can you cure or is it a 1 by 1 thing so every piece gets exposure

U can put as many pieces in the "bowl" as it will hold. U can put a full build table of pieces in and more.

Sill only 2 min. as long as u don't stack things on top of things.

Common sense stuff that u will see for yourself.

You will love this unit. You can print a model in the morning, cure, and get in the oven same day, cast the next morning. Huge time saver

I had 10 pieces in there at one time the other day

This thing is Amazing, in 4 hours I can print 40 rings and have them ready for casting. This really makes the B9Creator even more powerful as it takes the guess work out of curing the models.

totally agree.. With the nail curing unit, I was leaving prints in there for 4 to 5 hours or longer just to be sure casts came out well. This will speed things up a lot.

I have been using this unit for a while now and this is a perfect complement to b9c 1.2. I know that people like to cure models different ways but this is now the staple for curing model. Gone are the days of " I think this will cure the models correctly "
Just buy the Model Curer and put your model in it for 2-5 mins and DONE. that is it. I love it. This has really helped me help my B9C customers and they all love it.
Enjoy!

Hi Guys,

Im curing the ring models with the unit for 2 minutes, after finishes and it dries i get this white coating around the object. I was wondering if anybody noticed this.

Im washing in ultrasonic with soap and water for about 5 minutes rinse with hot water then into the Curing box.

This is why I said stop using alcohol the reaction with the resin causes the white chalky surface. This does not affect casting, but may be unappealing to look at.

I use a glass container to clean the Emerald print material with dawn soap and warm water in my ultrasonic.
I can do a bunch at one time...

However, if I continue to use the same water and soap a couple times, you will see a white material settling in the bottom. When you put the next piece in, it can get some white stuff stuck to the model...so, it is also important to throw out the soap and water and wash the dish before re-using it.
