Re: DLP dimensional issues on larger areas

Hi.
Have you tried printing in the other way around, turn it through 180°.
You could also try printing it at 45°.
Also look at supports, do you think it needs more?
These are just my suggestion. They may lead to a solution.

Strange "spiders web"

Hi all
Here is a strange thing with my prints. I need to print a few copies of a part. They print OK except for what I can only describe as a spiders web, see photos. It's not a problem to cut them off, I just wondered why they are there, everything else is OK.
Very weird.
Anybody else had this?

Re: Sunlu Silk Green FilamentPLA

I prefer Sunlu filament, I have never had a problem with it. They used to do an ivory white, it looked great but for some reason stopped making it.

Re: What's everyone working on

This was a box of assorted colours, 25g each sealed in a vacuum pack. I normally use SUNLU filament and I have never hada problem with it, even on the old stuff, you can bent it but it won't break.
I am surprised PETG broke as well I thought that stuff was supposed to be strong.

Re: What's everyone working on

I have had my JGaurora 5S for over a year now, and it has work fine. I have replaced a slightly blocked nozzle, replaced the vinyl cover on the bed a couple of times, but that's been all. Yesterday I wanted to change the filament, I had used a small sample to print a part in bright yellow. The filam...

Re: CHITUBOX

Hi For my resin printer I use PrusaSlicer first to import the parts position and add supports. I has a good automatic add supports, but you usually want to edit them and add more. This software is easy to use. I export the part with supports and import it into Chilubox to slice it, again easy to use...

Re: Printing as a solid when it should have an open top

Hi Robert
For me on parts that fit I make a 0.2mm gap. I find the print is 0.2mm bigger so I get a good fit.
It saves all the sanding afterwards.
So if I have a hole that an 8mm steel pin has to go in I make the hole 8.2mm.

Re: Printing as a solid when it should have an open top

Hi Rob Tinkercad is popular also fusion 360, both are free. Another is Onshape, also free but you can pay for extra features on a monthly basis. It all depends on how complicated your parts will be. I know sketchup has it's limitations. Try Tinkercad to start with, anything you learn there you will ...

Re: Cannot Believe EveryOne is on Stay At Home Orders

I saw this video a while back, yes it amazing the muck that came out of the bearings.
The printer runs OK, it's the other half (wife) that make the most noise when the printer is working, even though it's in the garage ;-)

If you could send an image of the file you are trying to print as well that would help.

Re: Carbon Fiber PLA

It costs more than 50% of normal PLA and the working temps are only a little higher.
I might have to buy some and try it.
Bit busy with other prints at the moment, so when I have time I'll look at it.
