TEMPLOT 3D PLUG TRACK - To get up to speed with this experimental project click here.
(I note that Elegoo seem to recomend 8 seconds for the ABS like grey resin)
I am now in the process of printing another set of S1 chairs and locator plugs, and will then measure these to see if i get any consistancy.
I am thinking that locator plugs are easier to measure than chairs.
I suppose it is the equivalent to etching a 10cm scale
with 1mm increments on an etch design, or for that matter the calibration lines that Templot prints for ensuring our templates are printed to the right size.
Picture of "bunched" sleeper sheet to follow, the design of which was performed by the laser cutting service.
Enough waffling for now, back to the resin tank to try out my 2nd build plate that has now arrived.
It is in a box labelled "sandblasted build plate" and is identical in looks to the one supplied with the Elegoo Mars 2 Pro.
Oh, and I have noticed that on a few of the 80 S1 chairs I printed with plug width adjusted by -0.3mm a corner of the chair baseplate had snapped off, as you predicted, but I suppose that happens in the real world too?
Was this in your paint brush process or in the Mercury wash phase?The top of the pin support pyramid is too small -- they all printed ok, but before UV-curing they were very delicate and several were lost in the washing process.

@Steve_CornfordWhat I don't know is how difficult it is to remove cured rafts from the build plate. Only one way to find out.
@Steve_CornfordAssuming S1 chair plugs are designed to be 2.10mm, I suppose an accuracy of plus/minus 0.01mm is acceptable?
So my locators with adjustment of -0.20 (per side should give a target plug width of 2.10 - 2 * 0.20 = 1.70mm
Am I right in thinking that if the printers resolution is 50 microns (0.05mm), then objects produced will have nominal dimensions prouced in increments of 0.05mm (in the X and Y plane), but 0.01mm in the Z plane?
I am wondering whether it would be usefula to actually get a dark room bulb (one of those red ones)
You earlier posed question about incandescent bulbs but t'internet seems to imply that even these can emit UV
@Steve_CornfordThe bad news: Today's loose-jaw pins won't fit the slots.
Print in progress!
Am I any the wiser?
