Re: Raising Liquid Levels in SLA250

I didn't mention that the recoater blade could not be used. Just change the
dip distance and time delay to let the resin settle and go with zero
sweeps. This may cause your parts to build a little "rugged" but if you can
afford it, you should be in business.


Instead of raising the resin level up, try lowering the platform to a new
"starting position" after every build. I never tried it before but I'm
quite sure it can be done. Any platform lowering experts out there? Hope
this helps. Good luck.

Does anyone out there know what can be used in an SLA machine to take up
the volume in order to raise the liquid level in the vat? We're in the
process of changing resins and want to be able to use as much of the
existing vat as possible; as we're trying to get as much life out of our
current resin as we can before the changeover.

Any ideas you can give us would be much appreciated.
