Are you using version 1 or 2 of the form-labs castable resin? There should be a code on the bottle.

I still do have some castable 01 but it is no longer being produced so I decided to use
castable 02 because if it worked that was the one that I could re-order.

Will continue testing. So far so good.
Don't know if Emils recommended settings will work. I hope so.

Ok. Thanks. Hope to hear how well it casts. I've heard mixed things.

Anyone else got experience casting the formlabs resin?

My castings with Formlabs 02 have been good but I have just recently started doing castings.
My Electromelt is down right now and next week I will be casting.

Sent the casting out for this ring.
Casting is platinum and Not printed with Solus since I had was not set it up at the moment.

Have you had to put the UV filter back into the projector, to use this resin?

printcast,
I will be casting Emerald later this week.

As long as the resin is fully cured one should have no problem.
Since I started using the Lizard light to cure the resin, I have had no major issues with my castings.
