Print problem resolved

I was having problems printing Vorex on the LittleRP. There were two symptoms: very rough surfaces (with little spikes sticking out) and soft "gunk" all over the print. Turns out that the front surface of the projector lens was dirty, as was the mirror. Both looked OK when inspected casual...

best resin for small parts

I need to print some small parts (an 8 mm dome, and a "sword" that is about 1 mm x 1 mm x 10 mm). I tried using Vorex, but at that small size, the parts are very soft. I need something that is harder and stiffer. Any recommendations?

Re: Help generating support

Found the tutorial here: http://www.kitprinter3d.com/en/blog/creation-workshop-tutorial-supports-n45 My problem seems to be that after I double-click on a support structure, it is not visibly selected in the 3D display. It sometimes becomes selected, but erratically and mysteriously. And each comput...

Re: Help generating support

Now I need help doing the reverse. I generated the supports automatically, and want to remove some of them. I can see how to select each individual support structure in the list at the lower left. I cannot see how to have that selection reflected in the 3D drawing, nor how to delete an individual su...

Help generating support

I am having problems understanding how to generate and manage support in CW. I have releases 36, 54, and 75 available. When I use Automatic support generation with one model, some areas are supported way too much, and others are not supported at all. When I click on the Add Support icon (in release ...

Brad helped me to get my printer working!

Some of you may have noticed a series of postings about my problems with print quality. I received many well-intentioned recommendations, none of which resolved the problems. Brad has been working with me, and I finally have a printer that is working perfectly. The problem appears to have been an ou...

Re: CW cannot load library

Other programs are having problems running on this computer (Repetier Host comes up with the same library load error) so I doubt that this is a CW problem.

CW cannot load library

I just installed CW on a new computer (Win 8) but it will not run because it cannot load some library. No idea what library. Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Re: CW cannot print this STL file

Thanks for all of your effort on this. The STL file came off of Thingiverse and has printed successfully on a FDM machine using Slic3r. It also looks OK in NetFabb basic. So I was astonished that some of you found problems with the model. I had checked it twice. I managed to get CW to slice it after...
