Re: XMaker software on diy DLP?

I checked their software out as well and thought the hollow and support structure was pretty good, only to find out that they use a proprietary model format on export. In place of it I've been using Meshmixer for hollowing and PrintStudio for orientation and support structure. Print studio is decent...

Re: Carbon 3D

Thanks Crusoe for the insights. I've made a few adjustments and shortened my throw a bit, I'll see if that has any bearing on cure time once I switch back from UHMW, although my TPX did finally come in, maybe I'll try that out first. Also, my order of the elastosil RTV came in today, hopefully I can...

Re: My new material for VAT

Re: Carbon 3D

Well, I went ahead and ordered one, it should be here sometime next week. I've read that you can mix Naphtha(lighter fluid) Edit: Tolulene ( thanks Zoom for the msds) to thin out RTV silicone, so I'll give it ago and see if I can cast a thin sheet. I have no idea if it's the correct RTV-1 or not, I'...

Re: Carbon 3D

There's been some talk of Elastosil, and we may be able to cast our own for testing purposes. 9 tubes of 310ml Elastosil caulking is up on Ebay. http://www.ebay.com/itm/301583427296 I'd be willing to purchase one and run some tests. I don't have a degasser though so I may run into some problems. edi...

Re: Any resins strong enough for engineering purpose ?

I don't have any experience with it but, the Vorex resin is supposed to be pretty sturdy.

Re: Best resin for miniatures

Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum and thought I would throw in my 2 cents. I've had some mild success with MakerJuice SF for miniatures while setting up my printer. My prints came out with a bit of detail loss at .1mm layer height, so I would suggest going way lower, maybe a .02mm seems ok. but gran...
