Re: Failed prints: a number of layers FULLY cured

Check you FULL RGb settings. Have the same issue now with Full RGB and have not changed my settings in over a year too. I usually do not upgrade the computer my printer is connected to but it got connected to the internet by accident (my mistake) and Windows 10 updated and changed my settings. Gett...

Re: how many people use the B9 resins on the solus ?

The new EasyCastHDo2 Green is even better for casting. I suggest getting a sample bottle and trying it. http://www.junction3d.com/buy/ccw-easycast-hd-m3tfy Might have to try something different soon. Still casting B9 Cherry but no one stocks it in Oz anymore. Could never see much of a difference be...

Re: Make sure machine is LEVEL.

FWIW My machine is way off level and has been since I owned it and for most of the 10L or so of resin that have been through it. Haven't had any problems. Mine is not that far off level.....but it has never been level for the nearly two years now I have used it and I have not had any issues. For th...

Re: Back using my solus after more than a year

Is 45 min to an hour better than what you can get with alternative solutions in the same price range? AFAIK time of build depends on the build height, resin and resolution and probably other things I have missed. My first printer was an Asiga Pico. It cost a little under double what the Solus cost ...

Happy New Year to the Reify team

I made the switch from the Asiga to the Solus about a year and a half ago. The machine, software and service are so far superior.....and it is cheaper! Maybe it is because I have been printing for a long time now but I have had no issues with the Solus. It just works and the prints are faster and th...

Re: Things just wont line up

I just set up the machine for the 42 XY configuration using the new fixed baseplate however I cannot seem to align the grid up. The projected grid seems to fall off the right hand side no matter what I do to align things. Mine does that too. The part of the arm that clips the printer into the proje...

Re: Casting resins cherry, emerald

I'd be concerned about using such flammable liquids in an enclosed appliance without any means of automatically regulating the temperature of the liquid. One mistake is all it takes for it to go up in flames. Hi Ron, That is why it is essential to do trials using a thermometer, recording the data a...

Re: Casting resins cherry, emerald

Does paraffin oil create any fumes? which is harmful for breathing? Have you heat more than 150? or always below that?. What do you thin, this one should work? https://www.amazon.com/Gallon-Paraffin-Lamp-Oil-Smokeless/dp/B00I26U9WS/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1524676514&sr=8-2-spons&key...

Re: Casting resins cherry, emerald

I believe it's that point that the water boils that does the best curing. This is also why you Don't want to add cool water. Let it cook for those 10 to 15 min between cycles. On another forum a member suggest to boil in pan of water for 10 min and let cool down. That's all he does. Thank you for r...
