Yellow Resin on Form 2

Post#1 » Thu Jan 26, 2017 9:22 am

Hi all,

I know you might see me as an 'intruder' on this forum, but I still want to ask this question.
I've just bought the B9R4-Yellow Castable Resin to give it a try on our Form2.
However, the models do not stick to the building table.
I've tried multiple settings.

Any suggestions?

Kind regards,

Unless there is another form2 user here using the same resin I don't see how we can help you since the machines are totally different.

try your form2 forum or call form2
3dcad jewelry. com is a good resource of users post the question there.
I'm so far behind I think I'm First !!

From my experience using different resins on different printers...

General rule of thumb for using any resin on a SLA/DLP printer:

Assumption: Your printer puts out out the correct light wavelength and intensity to cause the particular resin to cure
Assumption: Your layer peel mechanism and build plate design is compatible with the particular resin's characteristics in terms of viscosity, etc.
Assumption: Your resin is properly mixed and has the proper percentages of resin components (not unbalanced)

* If you expose it and it doesn't cure, you need more exposure

* If you expose it and it sticks to the vat and not to the plate, you need to check your calibration of your plate/vat interface, layer thickness and exposure

* If you expose it and it sticks to the plate, you are probably good, but still may need to tweak your settings for optimal use

There are plenty of variables that can all affect the result. This is the very top of the troubleshooting chart, but things like cleanliness of the build plate and vat surface can become an issue, contamination of resin with other incompatible resins, improper mixing, excessive light exposure, uneven build platform, damage to vat surface, etc. -- the list seems endless.
