Not bad... but worth it over a $15 rice cooker? I think not. Laughing Also have found that if you let the part heat up too much, the smoothing process slows, stops or worse - the surface begins to bubble as the trapped acetone boils away. Rolling Eyes

EDIT: That said, I wonder what filter medium they found to extract the fumes... I'd be adding that to my system for sure. Just like that full colour acetone printer I was going to make for printing in acrylic powder oh wait that's been done now. http://www.3dsystems.com/materials/visijet-c4-spectrum Crying or Very sad

That's a 55.8% price drop - double awesome! I have to wonder how it possible though - clearing out stock before a new model perhaps?

Is it possible to get the printer to pause for a while after it has done the first few layers of the raft- so they cool - then when it continues it wont bind aswell to the raft and then is easier to remove?

There is a "stop @ X Layer" option in the UP Software.
I'm sure it's on the settings area when you begin the print and set your detail and layer thickness’s.

Don't forget you need to enter the 'mm' height not 'layer number'!

Are you using aftermarket filament? Stevo's 12ohm resistor mod works well. Smile

Hi Angus... yep its the bilby stuff.
I never had much luck wit the Stevo hack…it started giving me errors….it would either say nozzle to hot and stop or nozzle to cold and stop….so Steve suggested to disconnect it….I just been sanding off the raft since then.
