Rugged - Nylon 6 Resin

Post#1 » Sun Feb 24, 2019 11:56 am

Hello,

So this won't work in the 1.1 or 1.2 machines?

I wonder why not? Would be perfect for my prototyping needs...

ask for a sample and read up on it's exposure properties
you may be able to make a new programing to the list you have now.
Many people have use other resins by doing this on the B9 1.1 and1.2
I'm so far behind I think I'm First !!

Thanks AK, will check out the possibilities, I guess I can ask sales directly...

Just wondering the official stance...(would take too long to print, or not enough lumen power to cure at all, etc)

I guess just long shot hoping perhaps there is a way to get it to work with some trial use...

Guessing the core series has much more powerful light source?

Regarding the samples, I assume they are offering already cured samples and not an actual sample of the resin itself? : )

Thanks

Just a warning to anyone else who might want to try the nylon resin.

It's VERY thick, too thick to flow back over the print surface in time. So not gonna happen. I guess this is why it's not listed as compatible.

I am experimenting mixing it with some other super thin MJ resin I happen to have on hand, otherwise a waste of 200 bucks.

I assume the properties will become brittle though, MJ is very brittle..so likely defeats the purpose...was hoping for usable snap fit parts..

I also have some spot HT and E I can mix with it as well...Will see how that goes, maybe I can get lucky.

I did contact sales ahead of time...and they said I could try, but apparently they had no clue about the fact that it is thick like molasses.

You can slightly tilt the machine to allow for faster flowback. Resins designed for the 1.1 will work fine this way as long as build table and image are parallel.

Not saying this will work, just a thought since u are experimenting.

Thanks Robert!

I actually thinking about removing the sweeper and seeing if the PDMS might make it through at least one print, but this is much better idea.

Greatly appreciated... The nylon is designed for the "core series".

Will give it a try today and will update with results.
