Emerald is high viscosity. Try increasing your buffer time to 2. It will slow things down a bit, but might give you smoother prints.

I try to follow archerm's method but with a little longer hold at the top end. http://www.reify-3d.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=250 although, as i read back over it I see that I have the UV/Microwave curing parts swapped from what he has listed...

Curing:
- Microwave in distilled water 3 minutes. Do this at least 3 times allowing 15 minutes to cool between each round.
- UV cure in 50w 405nm light for at least 2 hours (usually it is 3 or more)

Burnout:
- Invest with Plasticast. set for 6 hours
- Into the oven. ramp to 1000*F over three hours. Hold at 1000F for 1 hour
- Ramp up to 1350F. hold for 5 hours
- Drop back down to casting temp. shoot some air into the flask and then vacuum the flask
- Hold at casting temp for 1 hour then cast
