Re: FlexVat, Aluminium

Very nice!! And a good size as well. I made mine out of aluminum and was having a hard time putting the pieces together only with the help of bolts. Until I found out you can actually solder/braze aluminum with Alumiweld rods. They are very easy to use, inexpensive, and you only need a torch and som...

Re: SLA Project built with (mostly) recycled/salvaged parts.

Latest updates. I built the projector support using 3/4" plywood. If this becomes the definitive setup, then I will have it made of aluminum. I didn't remove the color wheel on the projector since it seems to work fine with Makerjuice resins. I only had to add an spacer to the lens assembly in ...

Re: SLA Project built with (mostly) recycled/salvaged parts.

OK! I just found out that turned out to be incredibly useful. At least for me, hehehe. My machine is mostly made of aluminum and was having a hard time putting it together by using mostly bolts, nuts and threads. I don't have an aluminum welder, so after a little research I found that you can actual...

Re: SLA Project built with (mostly) recycled/salvaged parts.

Really nice, clean build! Certainly doesn't look like it's made from scraps! You'd be surprised with the kind of stuff I run into in my recycling business. The black plastic table is an older CRT monitor stand, the metal feet where the container is mounted came from a Dell docking station. The alum...

Re: SLA Project built with (mostly) recycled/salvaged parts.

IMG_5714.JPG IMG_5718.JPG Well, 2014 is ending and work is winding down a little bit. So I've been able to roll my sleeves up and get to work on my machine's redesign from bottom-up to top-down. Still preserving the original idea of building it out of mostly scrap materials, that otherwise would ha...

Re: Help! Holes!

I have been working with a top down printer design with resin floating on saline water and I was wondering about your problem. I placed some Makerjuice SF resin in a container with saline water and it separated properly although there's seems to be a "transition" zone where resin and water...

Re: From modelling to production, first successful attempt.

Could you tell me more about the scanner? If i´m correctly, it seems Flexscan3D seems to be capable of using multi camera setup, one point i´m really interested in. Hello, Leinad78, The version of Flexscan3D I have supports multiple scanners, each scanner can be single or dual camera. I only have o...

Re: Casting directly in the 3D printed mould

It seems cool. But why sacrificing precious printer uptime and expensive resin when you can print the model directly and then make silicone molds. I create my pewter molds using smooth-on's moldmax 30 silicone rubber. You can cast multiple times with minimal detail loss. And if you create a support ...
