Bluecast X-One V2 0,5kg
BlueCast X-One V2 is the second generation of the premium castable resin developed and produced by BlueCast. It is suitable for DLP and Monochromatic LCD printers, and it offers excellent printability, fine detail, and 0% shrinkage. The X-One V2 is suitable for casting any kind of pattern with text, engravings, micropavè, etc. Part of the resin mixture is wax which gives the resin its unique properties: the resin melts when heated and then burns like paraffin. This helps the perfect and short burnout at low temperatures without leaving ash in the hollowed areas. The unusual resin composition makes it possible to be post-cured in alcohol with no need for a UV curing station.
Pros and Cons
|Resin preheat is necessary
|Larger number of supports may be necessary
|Full burnout with no ash residue
|Small parts are more fragile due to the wax content
The low-temperature melting polymer solidifies below 18 °C. It is necessary to preheat the resin before use to 25-40 °C (you can use CW1S preheat function). Also, thorough mixing and debubbling is recommended. For larger models, the minimum number of supports might be higher than usual, and 0.4 mm contact points (or higher) are recommended.
The resin may be post-cured with 91% to 99% Ethylalcohol or Isopropylalcohol.
- Washing in an ultrasonic cleaner takes approx. 5 minutes
- Using a resin washer machine (CW1S) takes 5 to 10 minutes
- Simple immersion in an alcohol bath takes approx. 10 minutes
Dry the model with compressed air, when the washing is done. The proper post-curing will be presented by the transition from dark gray to light-gray/white color of the model.
Spraying the surface with ethyl alcohol or IPA again and drying helps to improve the casting quality.
BlueCast X-One V2 gets completely burned out at 650 °C or 1202 °F. However, the manufacturer recommends using a last-stage temperature of 700 °C or 1292 °F.
This version allows you to make the ultra-fast burnout (2 hours at 700 °C). Allow the flask to rest for 3 hours, then proceed to 700°C (1290°F) and maintain that temperature for 60 to 90 minutes. Reduce the temperature to your casting temperature and hold for 60 minutes before casting as usual.
X-One V2 upgrades:
- Improved resolution, especially for the new 12k printers. Better accuracy and reduced bleeding.
- Enhanced printability, particularly for DLP technology (no need for additives).
- Increased stability at low temperatures.
- Improved meltability for micro-details and engravings.
