3D Printing General Discussion (merged)

Because when I see that something has failed I will use the scraper to clean the FEP, if I use the metal one I forget that it's metal and I have puntured one FEP that way.

So I rather use the plastic one and it does a wonderful job.

 

I don't scrape off bits stuck to the FEP until after I've disposed of the failed print and filtered the remaining resin back into the bottle. 

And the metal scraper is left in the bath where my IPA containers are, and the resin bottle, filters and funnel is in the room where I keep the printer.

'A Gambit of Guns' continues to vex me. It prints great with the new resin, I can see most all of the details except... Now the hammer and sites on the gun are failing. The supports just seem to disintigrate, I have tried to reinforce them but that did not go well. The presupported file is, unfortunately, not a chitubox file and the supports are part of the file and cannot be altered. I will probably try to do my own supports, maybe at a different orientation as well. I could try lowering the lift speed even further, but it's already fairly low at 70mm

 

For the time being though, I have a different file going in my printer while I am at work, hopefully it comes out OK. Right now I'd just like to have a 100% successful print.

have you seen the guys who have taken 60 grit sandpaper to their plates to fix adhesion issues?"

I will be giving that a try. I tend to have adhesion issues even after leveling the bed.

What is ethanol and can I use isopropyl instead?

 

You can use those, you can also use denatured alcohol.

 

Alternatives:

When you buy it use the code RN50 as mentioned on the frontpage of MMF.

Then it will substract 50%

I've had stuff like that happen to me a few times.

Sometimes we just overlook something.

No problem..

 

There are some nice designs in there.

I already bought the Manticore a month ago.

Now I wished I had wait.

Allot of times the % off sales are on the front page of mmf. You just gotta scroll the entire page to find all of them.
