Started the print run for my version of the Battletech Longbow model; 1/60th scale will stand about 200/250mm tall. Getting the prints done before tooling to replicate. The images are the missile launcher "arms".
Testing the B9 3d Printer continues well. Further Sci Fi style walls have been produced along with a few corner sections.
Starting to gain confidence and putting more on the platform with each build.
Need to keep a good check on the machine settings but the software settings for the B9 own brand resins seem to be perfect.
Made some small adjustments to the focussing of the projector this build and have managed to sharpen up the corners on the vertical edges - very pleased.
A bit of kit bashing for the Eagle Transporter (44" Studio Scale)
Was gifted some parts needed and ended up making 3 open top mould tools to help with the build.
Finally managed to get round to my first attempt at printing with the B9. It seems I am unusual in that I intend to print at 70micron with the build platform size of 105 x 76mm; most users are in at 30micron with much smaller build size for hi-res printing of jewellery.
My first print - big fail (twice!)
My second attempt, much better. No supports just building directly from the platform and at least I got something from it. The resin has warped slightly and almost released from the platform. I think this is the reason for the "step" towards the end of the build.
Some more learning needed but fairly happy to see the progress.
