You are going to be seeing a lot more of me around here soon… This afternoon I placed my order for a form 2.
My hopes are to use it for some dental modeling (my friends all seem to be dentists) and farm out some services on 3dhubs (already have a successful hub) but mostly for myself.
No idea what I want to do with it, but my form1+ clone since it cant use preform is not great for anything but basic items. I hate having to create support in meshmixer etc.
So here I am… Im not sure how long FL takes to process and ship, hopefully not too long.
I know there are some threads around and ive read a lot of them on Alternate resins for the Form 2.
My goal is avoid using FL resin as for customer pieces, dental etc I will want to, but for chess pieces, or other stuff, it seems like a good way to save a few bucks.
My question lies with the implementation of open mode. Am I correct in that the only way to “use” open mode with other resins is to fill an old tank with a resin that matches its printing profile?
Is there a list somewhere of resins that match the FL recipes for use this way?
Otherwise open mode seems somewhat worthless, is that right?
Ive read a few threads on alternatives to IPA given IPA absorbs in to parts and can crack them easily. Is there a true alternative people are using with success?
I cant tell you how excited I am to get the printer (this will be my 10th printer overall) Right now I own a form1+ clone and a Gcreate Gmax 1.5xt+. Pumped for the new pretty.
Thanks for reading this far.
be well all.
