No 100um in mertials library?


#1

Why isn’t there a 100um in standard autodesk clear in the materials library?


#2

I’m guessing that we assumed 100um would be too coarse for most prints.


#3

I have printed communication ear molds for police in 100um from flexible UV material and simply
use one of our dental type drills to sand off build lines…then coat it in a bio compatible silicone laquer.
Comes out perfect and it prints in 20 minutes!


#4

Wow, that’s pretty cool! I love when people think of new optimizations.


#5

Custom monitors are different but 100um is fine for comm molds.
Can you add it to the material library?


#6

Which material library do you mean? The one in Print Studio? You can just add a custom setting…


#7

Oh…I meant materials library on emberprinter.com


#8

I was hoping that you would have the settings and I wouldn’t have to do a million years of research! lol


#9

Ohhh, you were saying that in the past, with other printers, you’ve printed at 100um and sanded off the lines. I thought you were saying that you did it with Ember. According to the Instructable below, you can use 4-6 second exposure times with 100 micron layers with PR48:


#10

I printed 100um on ember with FSL flexible black setting


#11

Ah, I see. Does the instructable above help?


#12

It explains but doesn’t really help with exposure times etc…
When you change the 25um to 100um all the other settings change as well right?


#13

Not really, it’s just the exposure time that changes. And there’s a chart in there with exposure times:

Scapula print times and exposure settings:
25um: 2:34 min, 2.5 second exposures
50um: 1:23 min, 3.5 second exposures
100um: 0:46 min, 4 second exposures

Lattice print times and exposure settings:
25um: 3:01 min, 3.5 second exposures
50um: 1:45 min, 4.5 second exposures
100um: 1:03 min, 6 second exposures

It’s odd that they use both 4 and 6 seconds for 100um layers, but that suggests that a value in that range should work. I’d start with 4 seconds.
