    Hey ron :)

    What's your verdict on a qsil vat with no FEP?

    Seems like a no brainer as compared to $90 a pop VAT replacements.

    FEP sucks. Always has.  :)

      Gary,

      As long as your acrylic is in good shape and not too messed up from aggressive resin, I think it works fine. It worked pretty good until I had a batch of prints that got stuck to the PDMS which clouded it up. I think it would have still gone for a while before it stopped working properly. If you can only find a way to reverse the clouding...

      I don't mind the film for the up close projector settings. I only put enough FEP to cover the projector point, so I don't have to try to muck with getting it down perfect across the whole area. I don't like the FEP because it is too difficult to peel off that backing plastic without stretching it or adding wrinkles due to excessive lift/place on the PDMS.

      You are right it is a cheaper solution to recoat. I wonder if 3DFacture is thinking about putting out a recoat kit?

    Hi Andrew,

    I have checked the printer and evrything seem OK, the videoprojector is working fine, the printer fan is working fine, the electronic card inside the printer seem OK with green led on when I plug in the power cord, the motor is responding fine for calibration with Z axis, so, it seems the only thing to change is the acrylic cover which was broken when I have received the printer from DHL. I have also the 4 screws for videoprojector protection which are missing.

    By security, I would prefer to wait to receive the cover before starting a real print because of possible resin projection outside the printer in case of problem.

    Thanks,

    Pierre Gibouin
