Re: any way to bypass using cleaning ink?

I bought a second user machine from Metaza, and since it came with inks installed already, a new versaworks dual install just read the machine at its current state and no ink renewal was needed. Just a nozzle check when it arrived and it was golden :).

I would not flush the lines unless the printer has been unused for a few months. A couple (or more) of MENU > SUB MENU > INK CONTROL > CIRC-DISCHARGEs should take care of the issue.
See, thats the command you want :D.

Re: LEJ-640 - Transparent Film Issues

Yeah, probably needs a couple of cleans, not something I have ever done, try searching in here, mrtn is the resident expert in here (barring the roland crew!) Get the buggers told, the white needs removing and shaking every day. Its not really difficult, 3 coats it should be glowing with whiteness. ...

Re: LEJ-640 - Transparent Film Issues

Are you shaking the white ink every day? This is very important, as the pigments settle to the bottom of the cartridge and just the carrier fluid is getting pulled through. Probably need to flush out some of the lines, im sure someone with that knowledge will be on shrotly to tell you which option i...

Re: Feeds Speeds and DOC for Polycarbonate and PMMA

Yeah, the speeds and feeds etc you will find on sites are usually fine for machines designed for milling and are rigid enough. The problem you have is PMMA etc will melt at high spindle speeds if you are not going fast enough in the feedrate. But you need higher torque in the spindle. Thats probably...

Re: LEF primer vs gloss

Primer is needed for glass as its a bugger for adhesion. Like everything, get samples. The glass is still not going to be suitable for high temp use, or dishwasher safe etc. With acrylic it increases the scratch resistance, but does not make it hugely durable so its still no good for acrylic keyring...

Re: LEF primer vs gloss

Truthfully, I got mine over a year ago, and it only came CMYK+Gl+Wh. I had it changed over a couple of months ago to Primer, as although gloss is a nifty thing to have, the primer to me is much more useful. And yup, mine is a LEF20, but has up to date firmware so its essentially a LEF200 as it has V...

Re: Print Settings for correct size/placement using Corel X6 and VersaWorks Dual

The chances are, you laser is slightly off to the printer itself, either by alignment, or just due to the width of the beam. I always make identical jigs, then zero them out to the printer. So adjust the master itself on Coreldraw to match the printer. This then becomes your layout drawing (keep you...

Re: slicer and common 3d design software

As mrtn says, 3D design software will create a solid model. 3D printers mostly run on STL files. The 3D printer, in order to print layer by layer, uses a slicer to slice each layer up, and run the G/M codes required layer by layer as it goes. This is pretty much done in the background so you do not ...
