Re: Gear Printing

Hi I would doubt the printed gears would be very strong. The plastic gears in the gearbox will be injection moulded nylon. These gears are very strong for plastic. Injection moulding can be a very precise process compared to 3D printing, therefore It would be better to buy the gears to make the gear...

Re: Newbie here can’t get to print anything right.

The part you are trying to print is very particular as it's very thin. I had a few bad prints to start with but got my photon working. It is different to FDM, you just need to know a few rules. It the built plate level and set correctly. Is the print orientated correctly for resin printing. Are the ...

Re: will rubbing alcohol work for cleaning prints?

I put my cloudy IPA in the sun and let the particles settle. You can then filter out the gunk and you have fresh IPA to use again. I make it last a lot longer.

Re: Resin printers!

I got one just before Christmas, a second hand Anycbic Photon. It took a couple of goes to get the idea of how it worked, but once I started getting prints it's been great. The learning curve is no way near as hard as a FDM printer. The only thing to consider is the where you will put it. There are ...

Re: A Tea between friends :-) How was Your Day

I agree with you GrueMaster about Linux. I have to have windows on my main PC and Laptop for CAD, but have Mint on my older laptop that I take on holiday etc. It was supposed to run Win 10 but it ran so slow it was almost unusable, so I put on Linux on it and the difference is amazing. Having used L...

Re: DLP dimensional issues on larger areas

Sorry I meant to say: as it releases from the FEP, not build plate.

Re: DLP dimensional issues on larger areas

It sounds like a suction issue. As the printer is printing the biggest area it is pulling the edges as it releases from the build plate. You could try thicker supports around the area that is distorting. Did you also try laying it on it's side, this should give you a move uniform part. At times resi...

Re: A Tea between friends :-) How was Your Day

In my opinion stick with Windows 7. I know it's out of date but I have it on my main PC. I find Windows 10 a pain, I have had to jump through hoops etc so it won't auto-update. I want the PC to work for me, not me work for the PC. I also have a NAS for all my data, it's over 10 years old and on the ...

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...
