Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 22, 2020 by getbent57

Finally heard back about the Anycubic Washing & Curing Machine I ordered back in March (2020).  They said it will not be shipped since it will no longer be a Canadian supplier.  When I first looked at getting this I did check to see if they are or ship to Canada.  At that time they did.  Then they asked if I wanted a refund.  Well of course I do.  Not going to give you my money for free.  Need to keep a close eye on my Pay Pal to make sure they do.  Still every much would like to get on of these machines.  They only place in Canada is to get one now is Amazon.ca.  Which is fine but they want too much.  All more $100.00 than I paid the first time.  If they do go on sale at some point it jump at it.

[Update] Since typing this post have received a refund.

Still waiting to see when I will receive the Anycubic Washing & Curing Machine I bought back in March (2020).  A little bit back story. Ordered it and at that time it was for sale and at a good price.   Went though buying it with Pay Pal.  Received and email saying you order has been received.  Will update you went it ships.  As I did that the product listing went back to be a pre-order.  Since then It now for sale again.  Every day I check my email for original link they sent me to see if they are shipping it.  Still haven’t received any notices.  So I sent them an email asking questions.   A week and a half later, still no reply.  Going to email again.  I know the world is a bit crazy now but an simple email would be nice.

Anycubic Washing & Curing Machine Update

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 17, 2020 by getbent57

It was back in March (2020) that I ordered the Anycubic Washing & Curing Machine.  At that time it was for sale and at a good price.   Went though buying it with Pay Pal.  Received and email saying you order has been received.  Will update you went it ships.  A few weeks go by and still haven’t got any news on shipping.  Head back to their website.  The product listing reads it back to pre-ordering.  So my guess I just missed out on the first batch.  It is now April 11, 2020 (As I am typing this).  The website says it is now sold out.  Do hope I get some kind of info on it soon.  If not just might have to see if I can get my money back.

Anycubic Washing & Curing Machine Ordered

A few weeks back talked about the Anycubic Washing & Curing Machine.   This device let your clean and curing you resin 3D prints.   I own an Elegoo Mars.  Before it was out you could have pre-ordered and saved a bunch of money if you bought it from their website.  The thing was, it was in US money.  I decided to see it would come to Amazon.ca.  It did, and at first they had a $80 digital coupon.  Dragged my feet on that and missed out.  So on Amazon.ca it cost $360.00 now.  That is a bit too much for me.  So looked back on the Anycubic website and they are asking $189.00 US.  Did some math and it is cheaper to buy it in US money and do the money exchange.  I even found a discount code, so I saved an extra $10.00.  It ended up costing me $260.00 in Canadian with free shipping.   A much better deal.  Not sure when it will get here. Guessing about a week.  Will be back with an update.

ELEGOO Resin Settings on Mars & Mars Pro Guild

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 11, 2020 by getbent57

Yet again making another post about the Elegoo Mars.   I have not used it in months now because it is winter.  The resin needs to be at about 20°C to work right.  The temperature is up and down all too much.  So when the nice again going to start printing a lot.  If you have one or thinking about getting one.  It can be confusing to figure out what setting to use when setting up a model to print.  Have some good news to share about that.  Elegoo has put out a nice document.  Listing all their resins and what setting to use for the Mars and Mars Pro in a Google Docs sheet.  Which you can see > here.  Saved a copy just in case I ended up using a different type of their resin.

Anycubic Washing & Curing Machine

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 3, 2020 by getbent57

Anycubic_Washing_&_Curing_MachineBack in January (2020) found out that Prusa has a washing and curing machine called the CW1.  It as pretty slick machine for being used with resin 3D prints.  The thing is, it costs $700.00 US.  Discovered there is another machine coming out soon called the Anycubic Washing & Curing Machine.  Anycubic make many different 3D printers and have one that is comparable to the one I have the Elegoo Mars.  Watched a video on how it works.  Which you can see > here.  Must say it works great and think its prefect of me.  But was guessing it would be super pricey.  Turns out it a great price, $189.00 US.  However as of typing this (February 25, 2020) its $159.00 US in a pre-order.  For that price very temped.

[Update]  You can know buy it.  It is even on Amazon.ca. Even more temped to buy one.

Elegoo Mars Spar Building Plate

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 3, 2020 by getbent57

Elegoo_Mars_Spar_Building_PlateBlogging about the Elegoo Mars again because I just found out you can buy spar build plates.  They have them over at Amazon.com > here.  They don’t seem to be on Amazon.ca just let.  Am sure at some point they will be.  Think this is a good idea for may reasons.  May be you scratched yours up too much.  Or may be you want to keep printing with out stopping to remove a print.  Just put the new one on.  Another reason is it comes with the better plate leveling screws.  They are bigger and stick out.  In the older models like mind the are sunken in.

In this weeks video for the YouTube Channel, I’d Rather Watch Paint Dry, talk about making a DIY UV Curing Box For The Elegoo Mars.  A little while back made a video talking about the 3D printer, Elegoo Mars. When working with the resin you need to be careful. Before you can touch the finished prints with your bare hands you need to cure the resin with a UV light. You could use the Sun but if the weather is not on your side. It best to us a UV curing box. They are many ways to go about it. This is how I made mine.  You can see the video > here or below.
