I finally had time to do some printing again this weekend as I organize bi-monthly 3D Printer Weekends at my local hackerspace. People from all around the southern parts of Norway meet up for two full days/evenings of only 3D printing and chat. We organize these via Meetup: http://www.meetup.com/bitraf/photos/25983152/. I can really recommend doing this other places as well!
Very happy with the results though it’s a time consuming process. Here’s some more pictures from the prints I made: http://jcprojects.tumblr.com/post/113729906829/just-wrapped-up-the-9th-3dprinter-weekend The Millenium Falcon broke it’s own supports and that made the underside look like a burnt down wax candle. The Tower prints beautifully with auto-generated 3mm long supports from Creation Workshop.
The R2D2 model was hollowed out using a Photoshop script for post-processing the images from CW. Think I’ll explore this a little further as I move forward as I had absolutely no problems with this print. There was barely ANY suction/release problems.
I lost a VAT during the weekend, as I forgot to turn on the casing fan manually. The case became so warm that it eventually “melted” the bottom of the VAT: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sxwl78gAiCY It would be really great if Kudo3D changed the design/firmware to always power the enclosure fan and not rely on the order of things being turned on. This fan should be always running when the projector is on. I might connect it directly to the 12V input to prevent more VATs from melting.
I’m attaching my settings for Makerjuice G+ at 192x108 scale & 100um layer height that should work for all miniatures. It’s slightly over-cured still, so one could maybe drop the exposure time by 10% still.
