Anybody know what’s causing the fuzzy strands sticking out on the print?
I wouldn't go lower than 200 degrees. I don't see a problem with your print, except for blobs mostly on your supports. There are several videos on YouTube that show you how to tune your printer if you need. Use CA glue for PLA. Sanded parts are almost impossible to take apart without wrecking one or both parts, so ensure that you are precise with your placement. I use locator pins made of brass. Most times I design my parts with corresponding holes, but with models that I have downloaded, I drill holes to accommodate them. Test fit several times and glue once.Temp could be high - Im running at 200 in a florida garage on the extruder
I'll check retraction.
It does flake off pretty easily so I may not monkey with it too much. Almost half way through a pit-droid for my wife.
On another note - What adhesive should I use for PLA?
I’m sorry to hear about the troubles you‘ve been having...I've recently picked up the photon mono, and the wash and cure 2.0 and I promptly punctured the fep trying to remove cured resin from it when the little spatula broke very easily and cleaved the plastic open. After swearing like I had tourettes for about 2 hours (I have a habit of breaking things right after I get them) I ordered replacement frame/feps from anycubic (because the frame holding the sheet is glued together), which I've heard can take months to actually arrive, so I hit reddit to see what the "experts" are recommending. I then ordered an aluminum vat with an already installed fep. My first test print was pretty good, not perfect. Did the cube. It's wonky here and there. I was happy with it enough to set up some Silverhand grips (which is the reason I decided to finally get into resin printing) and YEAH, weeks have gone by now and I don't have a single successful print other than that first cube. I have some 3in1 PTFE lube on order, that is my next step to try and get a decent print done...
I will do that. And I am always up for chatting about 3D printing and props! That sounds great. I will be in touch. Thank you.I’m sorry to hear about the troubles you‘ve been having...
As I’m learning more about the AnyCubic, I genuinely believe they are good machines. I would encourage you to check out the exposure test video posted earlier in this thread and get your resin settings dialed in - that was a huge turning point for me. The PTFE lubricant was also a big help.
Happy to chat more if there‘s any assistance I can offer!
I like how you think!now you need 1 more printer so you can be twice as fast...but if you had 4 more you could save so much time.
I haven't even tested my IBEE yet and I want 3 more.I like how you think!
As I‘ve been sitting back watching this thing go, I started thinking:
While I am still very much cutting my teeth on all of this, I can definitely see the advantages of having multiple printers of varying sizes.
- I need more printers
- I need bigger printers
I have a big project coming up that I intend on tackling with this one. We’ll see whether that’s enough to push me to add more to the arsenal...
Sorry if I missed it, but which printer did you decide on?Well, I was out bid on an open box unit last night, so I’m getting closer. (Winner paid new unit price which was my upper threshold).
And I have a half-liter of resin on the way. So, I guess that makes it official. I plan to huff the resin when it arrives to get an idea how stinky it is.
Oh, look! A rabbit hole!
When I was researching printers, I got stuck between the AnyCubic Photon Mono X and the Peopoly Phenom L. I really wanted the Phenom just because of its huge print volume (being able to print whole helmets and armor pieces sounded great!), but I couldn’t justify the 3x price compared to the Mono X, especially for my first printer.I haven't even tested my IBEE yet and I want 3 more.
