  • Yours with a tweak or two that I didn't document. I believe the P1 is what is being used for the M command in question. It worked with little to no fiddling, I think my changes were just me dicking around.
  • I have the 7822HDL, which is effectively the same thing, and was unable to use any projector communication commands until I played with modified firmware. Edit: I've tried this on two such projectors, since a friend also has one.
  • To answer 3), I use makerjuice SF and G+ primarily. White for most quick jobs (3-5 seconds per layer is great... this is at MAXIMUM build volume, too!), red or yellow for most things requiring detail. For more or less any use, the yellow and red are…
  • Update: I noticed a bit of vibration on the new setup! I have concluded that this is due to the shutter being entirely undamped. The shutter size is small enough that it is well within the load capacity of the stepper, but there's still opportunity…
  • [...] I am not sure however how well that will work unless you can actually turn off the lamp. Since it is a constant source of light emission and the light path of the projector is not a perfect light sink, those commands operate more on the digita…
  • As a side note, I have my projector on the 8th slot and set to take up almost the entire build plate. The light profile still does not reach near the edges of the new, reduced shutter; additional light bleed isn't a concern. The only disadvantage I …
  • @nicolas, a raft is a big shape on the first layer (or first few layers- I do 2-3) of the print. The goal is to provide a large base to 'stick' to the build platform. Easy to demonstrate with a picture... http://i.imgur.com/Vida79q.png See the big …
  • Exposure to 'stagnant air' around where resins are stored and worked with has given me eye irritation in the past. I was sensitized to it for a while and it gave me headaches, so no, the SDS is not stating that for lawyers.  If you've ever rubbed yo…
  • Remember that acrylic is a thermoplastic... so-called plastic welding is very much a thing. Heating a small rod and using it to melt the crack back together is also an option. Before doing so, make sure the area at and near the joint is cleaned with…
  • I was using it for a time, running my machine off of a raspi with a camera to monitor the print. Was pretty slick, once I figured out how to do it. I went back to direct from a laptop in order to handle some of the larger files I needed to print. I'…
  • :-bd Glad you got it straightened out @nicolas. It is just about impossible to get any support out of the author of Creation Workshop. Especially now that they've kinda-maybe-not-really-but-still-look-like-it-but-haven't-released-new-features mone…
  • Having opened >1gb STL's in CW, I can confirm that they'll still open. You'll hate CW with a passion, but by golly I got it to slice. How do you mean that you aren't able to download it into CW anymore? Is it just not showing up, and if so, have …
  • An argon flood isn't out of the question; I have access to a welding lab and argon is used as a shield gas. A bit out of the way, though!
  • Update: I've tested with FEP covering a thin film and a thicker layer backed by plastic in air, LOCA in water, and finally FEP covering a thicker layer backed by plastic in water. The FEP with a thin film of LOCA provided no noticeable curing. Nonvi…
  • A minor update: I've tested my LOCA on plastic wrap in a thin-spread film and blob under post-curing lighting for maybe ~30 minutes for thoroughness. The thin film barely cured, if at all, except for a few spots where it was thicker. The blob cured …
  • X-factor sticky-icky 1000 ultra low viscosity. I got it a bit back. I haven't actually verified that the tube is still good- I'm planning on doing so tonight/tomorrow!
  • LOCA used in phone screens becomes easier to remove upon heating, so I'd assume that would help. I'm also assuming that the resin heat conditions won't be sufficient to critically affect its performance (based off of my experience with finger-measur…
  • Gotcha, thanks! I've got a small container of cell phone screen adhesive- I think I'm going to try using a nearly-nonexistant layer of that to adhere the FEP to my silicone. Will report on results!
  • Ron,  Thanks for the notes! I'll agree re: form vs function. I think a lot of folks like to be able to watch prints? I've seen resins eat through the powdercoating as well.  Off topic, but what are you using for your adhesive-backed FEP? How did you…
  • Out of curiosity... why do the 3Dfacture and your build plates drill all of the way through vs. threading the hole and putting some ol' red loctite in there? Is the price quoted for just the plate or plate + mount?
  • Ron, For things like test rooks etc it is super easy; just upload and let the inbuilt slicer handle it. If you want anything with supports or custom orientations, you need to do all of that before uploading. This means generating a sliced file via c…
  • I may be interested- would you be willing to put up some pics in the thread so we know what we're signing up for?
  • I'd like to also point out that there are two other 'software solutions' that can be made to work with it- NanoDLP and Photonic3D. Both are designed for web gui and handle a little differently than creationworkshop proper. They're both something I'd…
