Re: Anycubic Photon S Resin SLA Printer

As a follow up to the question on how long the resin lasts....

I did a print the other day with resin I had left in the vat for nearly a year, printed no problems at all! The resin just needed a good stir as the pigment had settled in the vat, same reason why you need to shake the bottle!

Re: Anycubic Photon S Resin SLA Printer

That is awesome! What does the resin cost? Also how long can you leave the resin for once opened? Costs vary depending on manufacturer, type of resin and of course shipping. I found an Australian resin manufacturer, https://Monocure3d.com.au and have been using three of theirs, grey, clear and whit...

Re: Printing Circuits

for those wanting to play with this sort of tech, office works sell the conductive pens that use this silver ink - Circuit Scribe (not cheap tho)

Re: Anycubic Photon S Resin SLA Printer

one thing Ive found is the resin downs like the cold weather, I need to look at a heater or keep inside the house to keep it over 20Deg when printing. currently its in the outside laundry so is chilli there.

While I don't have a heap of photos at the moment the resolution is pretty damn impressive. 0.05mm as the default slicing resolution with it stated hi...

Re: Front Panel Designer - Free

Can it export to a .skp .dae or .stl ? No, however it does export STEP so can then use something else to convert STEP to those formats https://www.schaeffer-ag.de/en/front_panel_designer/the_idea/ The link to the german site (above) has a newer version than the US site, which included the STEP output

Re: Laser Current Meter

for your laser cutter, do you use a 3d printer with the extruder swapped out for a laser, or a dedicated unit? Is a dedicated 80w unit from China that has a working area of 700mm x 500mm, I did a post on commissioning it here http://forum.swmakers.org/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=193 . I did have a 3w d...
