“I’d tell him to put the damn thing back in the box, and send it back.”
Really? It’s just a failure of your imagination. Or maybe you just have a pedestrian use, and don’t understand how complicated thiings can get when you’re pushing the envelope, and how much fun collaboration can be.
For example, the just released ESD resin. Is it suitable for a base for electrolytic coating wiith copper? It’s worthy of a discussion, and the engineer will have to talk to the materials people. That’s a couple of calls.
Then, what can I do to minimize my experimental costs? Couple of conversations, because no one really knows. It’s new territory.
Or, the issue of permanence, since I’m making sculpture, which sells for a considerable sum, and I’m concerned about long term deterioration. What can we work on together, if anything. That’s an escalation.
And how about making molds which hold scan lines quite well, and which have complicated geometry, with serious limitations on things like internal supports which would steady the print. How do I stabilize the print and minimze print times, since it’s taking a day and a half for each print. Any help would be appreciiated, and they’re happy to collaborate. They’ll send suggestions, and .form files to try. Sometime the magic works, and sometimes, not. But a fresh take is helpful.
Which variable can we look at to gain maximum effiiciency while gaining maximum quality; orientation, mold thickness, support density, attachment size, and slope, hight above platform all make a difference. Can I get access to square attachments for toudgh2000 to minimize divots? I need to move from experiments to production as quickly as possible, and pro support is my ally, If they can just tell me, rather than my trying something out can save me days.
And it looks like with some of the engineering resins, the recommended lifespan of the tanks on the 3L is only 3 prints. Which is $100 per print. What can we do to minimize that? What’s the real lifespan? And since the software counts total print time against lifespan, can we adjust the algorithm so that fill time and heat time and level checking don’t count, since they don’t stress the membrane and are more the ½ the total print time. And what can they do on their end to shorten that, since it’s obvious to me that there’s room for optimization. My data can help them.
Or should I pack up the 3L and the 3, forget my experience with Form2’s and 1+s, and forget about what I know, since I’m obviously unqualifed to own the device.
