    Cool Successful Prints

    After many trials and tribulations, I finally have managed to get a successful print. Having tried various techniques, I have hopefully found some that can alleviate the problems we have been having. I'll post my findings later after trying more prints but here are some pictures attached

    It's actually for a product we are about to launch. My friend and I have started a new business and part of the reason I bought the Morpheus was to get better quality prototypes than I have been getting with FDM. We have made a computer for kids to teach them about programming and electronics. You can see more info on www.thisisada.com

    Incidentally, we are also launching a Kickstarter campaign next month

    BTW how many microns did you use on that one?

    I printed it at 70 microns. That is the maximum recommended by FTD resins for this kind of printer. 5 layers at 50s exposure, then 13s exposure for the rest of the layers. The biggest issue is the supports and to be honest, through all the research I have done, the software is pretty poor at generating supports that are useful. Meshmixer comes close, but it is better to add them manually. My support tip diameter is 0.6mm, however will try and reduce this in future prints. I added a perforated edge in my CAD package to try and retain as straight an edge as possible, then added further supports manually using meshmixer and CW.

    What problems are you having @bolsoncerrado? Also, I appreciate your offer of helping us out with the community side for our Kickstarter project and any help would be appreciated. I'll get back to you regarding this.

    To be honest, I hate uncertainty and I am trying to work out a sequence of events that I can use to give me successful prints every time. The laser pointer is one of those and I am trying to work a better way to level the bed (that's why I asked @bolsoncerrado the question about the amount of pressure applied to the platform). If too much pressure is applied to one sire, the print is squashed at one side and lop-sided.

    I will post all my findings and tips shortly once I have completed my tests (having wasted tons of good resin)

    Hi all,

    I'm pleased to post another successful print

    Printed at 70 microns using FTD resin with exposure time of 11 seconds. This was printed with NO BASE and NO SUPPORTS.

    It has taken me a LOT of time and learning to get here and I have had to make some hardware modifications to my Morpheus, but nothing that is complicated or technical so can easily be done by everyone else. I am happy to share, however would like to share my findings with TOW first to compare notes and see the issues they are having. It means I now have a technique for getting good prints without much effort.

    I don't know whether or not to be worried that nobody else is posting in this thread. Has anyone else had good prints from their Morpheus?

    I am sharing a couple more and will start a new thread tonight showing what changes I made to my printer to get these.
