Re: Resin Printing Questions About Curing/Washing.

I use IPA that's 99.9%. I have 2 plastic containers with lids. The first one I drop the parts in and move around for a couple of minutes. I then pull off the supports, if they can be pulled off easily. I then drop the parts in the second container and the I give them a good brush with an old toothbr...

Re: Resin Printing Questions About Curing/Washing.

Hi IcedStorm777 Welcome When a print comes off the resin printer it needs to be cleaned. The best way to do this is to put it in IPA and brush off the excess liquid resin, this is important for all the little grooves and holes. I have never used an ultransonic cleaner so I can't comment, except if y...

Re: PROBLEM PRINTING NEMESIS ENGINES ON ELEGOO MARS PRO

Hi Paul I don't know the Chiron printer but the Photon seems to be good build quality, perhaps I got an early one. From what I've seen on Facebook there are a lot out there and they seem to work OK. I am not trying to change your mind, it's just my point of view. I am sure you will do your homework ...

Re: PROBLEM PRINTING NEMESIS ENGINES ON ELEGOO MARS PRO

The Resin printers have a small footprint so you don't need a lot of space. I would recommend getting one with a hinged top otherwise you have to have a place to put top that you have taken off. I have a plastic tray, the size you use for meals, where I keep the cleaning alcohol in a couple to plast...

Re: PROBLEM PRINTING NEMESIS ENGINES ON ELEGOO MARS PRO

I take the supports off before curing as they break off easily. I use a sharp knife to cut a few then I can just pull them off in one go. Compared with filament supports they are a lot better, you only see a small dot that can easily be sanded off. LePaul you will have to get a printer to try, they ...

Re: PROBLEM PRINTING NEMESIS ENGINES ON ELEGOO MARS PRO

I have been to the Malaga region for holidays, before we moved to Spain. We were at Nerja and Cómpeta. I did a lot of cycling there. It's a very beautiful area. I remember the views from Cómpeta, you could see the sea.
I got your email thanks.

Re: PROBLEM PRINTING NEMESIS ENGINES ON ELEGOO MARS PRO

Soy ingles y vivo en España y hablo español, pero no bien.
I think it might be better to split it into 2 parts, then glue then together as it is complicated.
Are you able to do this.

Re: PROBLEM PRINTING NEMESIS ENGINES ON ELEGOO MARS PRO

I use PrusaSlicer for orientation and adding supports. It can orientate the part for the best angle and it does a good job of automatic supports, but you need to add more normally.
I then use Chilubox for slicing.
These seem to be a popular combination.

Re: PROBLEM PRINTING NEMESIS ENGINES ON ELEGOO MARS PRO

Have you looked at any Youtube videos on adding supports. Also what are your results like. Do you have any photos? Getting to angle right of the part and adding supports takes a little time to master, but it's not rocket science. Each model is different. I have printed the same part 3 times. The fir...

Re: Need help with surface finish on a mold piece

You will of course need to do a little sanding to get the required finish with fine sandpaper, around 400 - 800 grit.

Re: Need help with surface finish on a mold piece

This is what I would expect from 0.2mm Layer Height. I would reduce it to as low as you can, this will improve the quality of the finish.

Re: Issue with embossed feature - Cura

I have had similar problems putting text on parts. Yours seem too small. I make mine at least 1mm thick this means the 0.4mm nozzle has to do a few passes to print the text. It is the same for engraving text, don't make it too small. I sometime put text on angle faces only to find half the text gets...

Re: Old Brittle Filament

I have my printer in an enclosure although I don't use ABS anymore. I have had a couple of rolls break during printing.
So now when it's cold I heat the bed to 60°C and leave it to warm up the inside before printing, it seems to work on old filament.
