Re: Spam: got questions

I agree, too much spam here... :(
Another option, could their be a button for all of us, to indicate something is spam.
With 3 or more hits, this post could then be invisible and removed by a moderator when necessary?

Re: LASER for Laser Engraver build so can use to build an SLA or SLS

Cool, I'm also going this way. I bought a big 60W CO2 laser. I did some nice engravings already on wood, so for the resolution, I guess this will work. I will definitely try to do some sintering too. But have no clue where to start buying some sinter materials... What materials could be possible, wi...

Re: pressurized FEP vat

the viscosity of resin can affect the speed... Since viscosity is also depended on temperature, it could also be wise to have a small heater+PID (or cooler!) inside the build platform, which guarantees a constant viscosity during build? One of my last build, I did encounter a lot of issue's with he...

Re: pressurized FEP vat

Hi hp, maybe try something together? I was not really planning using different gasses, but might still be an option. I don't understand, why the Solidator (with a large buildplate) does have no issue's with a 'dome' effect.. But interesting anyway! @android78, your are not hijacking at all! Nice to ...

pressurized FEP vat

I got quite enthusiastic about the Carbon 3D printing material. I did understand from the post, that this material somehow allows even more air moving through the foil, then FEP does. So what will happen when we pressurize a FEP vat? This should allow more air going through the FEP I guess.. And wil...

Re: Geckodrive G540? And other questions.

any suggestions in terms of build vs buy... In both situations you need to buy a light source (either dlp/laser) + controller any ways. So it depend what you like to do most (fun-factor): buy -> (need to spend a little more money, since you have already a motor drive/raw material...) -> you could s...

Re: DIY DLP printer + FEP foil / Utrecht

Got some questions from Jeff by mail, maybe better to post it here instead: Nice work on the DIY 3d printer! I found your blog really informative and helpful. Thanks for sharing the build. Anyway, I saw that you have changed to a pillowed flex-vat design utilizing an off-the-shelf plastic container....

Re: First prints! Starting to print.

Although I like the 3dkitbash.com website, there are also some free options. I tried this one before, maybe this will help you also: http://thingiverse-production.s3.amazonaws.com/renders/53/92/9f/f2/a0/Calibration_Matrix_preview_featured.jpg Free to download the calibration part at: https://www.thi...

Re: DIY DLP printer + FEP foil / Utrecht

Here I'm explaining how to use pronterface/projectlayer. Pronterface handles the USB-connection. Within pronterface, there is a program called 'project layer'. That's the one which is projecting an image to a second screen, by dragging the window there. Then this program also send NC-code to you ha...

Re: DIY DLP printer + FEP foil / Utrecht

"Retraction speed" is used within the PronterFace program and works in both ways. (It's used like: "g1 z2 f50") My guess: the lift speed is the most important. (But I'm not able to test this.) Even better would be a ramp-up, actually in both directions, I'm not sure if this is po...
