Topic: MakerJuice resins with Form 1+ total failure
I bought a bottle of MakerJuice SF grey about 3 months ago, and yesterday I decided to give it a try. I installed a brand vat, and filled it about half way with the MakerJuice, after shaking the bottle really well for about 30 seconds.
The first print attempt was a complete failure. The only thing that printed was the base, and the supports, up to about where the model was supposed to start. The base was also very brittle. The setting I use for this first test was Grey FLGPGR01.
Of course there was a nice blob of cured resin at the bottom of the vat, and while removing it I noticed pigment streaks in the resin, so I spent about 5 minutes re-mixing the resin in the vat, using the spatula, until it looked nice and even, then tried the same print again. I set the resin setting to FLGPGR02 this time, and hit start.
This time, the model printed all the way, except it's still a failure. Some of the parts are cracked, others are separated, and others printed like a blob. The plastic is very brittle, an the surface has a gritty feel to it.
Here are a couple of images showing the grey print, next to the same model printed using some old expired F100G resin.
