We have been having trouble with it curling. The strange part of this
is that it is curling in the opposite direction from normal. The ends
are curling down, not up. We have been working with DTM to resolve
this, not luck as yet. If anyone has figured this out, please let us
know. As for the wet material, we have not had this problem. We made
our order just as it was announced. Maybe something has happened in
their manufacturing or packaging to cause the moisture problem. Our
powder is dry. As they say about musket loading, "KEEP YOUR POWDER

Subject: SLS glass duraform

Has anyone been having problems with the SLS glass duraform recently?
This is related to both newly received material and part processing.

We've noticed some of the new containers have material that feels
almost wet (we can ball it up like a snow ball). Is this common with
others running it? Also how have you found the processing of this
material recently? Has it changed from when you first started running
it? Over the last month we have discovered some puzzling problems that
have not been experienced before with any of the other materials

I've recently heard that new glass duraform material is not currently
available from DTM and wonder if there are problems with the material
and the supplier of the material.

Thanks in advance.
