Re: Calibration Problem

The thinnest would be best. No more than the thickness of the film. DO NOT change the grid layout size. Size it to the print profile you are using. Always use the rectangle grid, just measure it accurately. I don't know much about changing the micron size. You can but you would have to play with the...

Re: tunnel porosity

I just had two rings do this. I had sprus running up to the top of the ring in two places. Was a split shank at top with stones set into it. I figured it was because of the seats Boolean out through the shank. Redesigned ring without, still had tunnels. This was a thicker ring, 3.2mm stones. I cured...

Re: Calibration Problem

I guess your talking about the gird sizes. It's best to use a very thin piece of paper. Some use graph paper. Draw a precise rectangle for the size of each and place on quartz and project the gird. Use the software to adjust the corners and middle. Not sure what you mean by "size of bath" ...

Re: Software Lockup when Printer Not Attached

open Contour, and go to Help there should be a " check for updates" There might be a box to check to get Beta versions. Check this and it should automatically download the update.

Re: Software Lockup when Printer Not Attached

You might want to update contour at least. Maybe the older versions would not open if printer not connected.

Re: Failed prints: a number of layers FULLY cured

I had a win update Friday and had the same thing happen. Checked my RGB setting and sure enough, it was set back to normal. So I'm guessing they had an update to the video driver.

Re: Software Lockup when Printer Not Attached

I unplugged my printer and projector from the laptop and opened Contour just fine. So it must be something with the computer. Is your Contour up to date? I hate windows updates. I think they should always ask if you want to update. Tell what they are updating and deleting. Just like this last update...

Re: Software Lockup when Printer Not Attached

I can open Contour on my home computer. I never have had the printer hooked up to it. So don't know why it wouldn't open on the laptop. Will have to see tomorrow. It could be due to a windows update.

Re: Help Diagnosing Failed print cause

glad to hear you got it going. The emerald green need to be mixed- shaken very very well. The pigment separated and would stick to the bottom of the bottle. Hard to get it to mix well. That's why many of us put stainless nuts in our resin to help mix it well.
