Step 1. Pouring enough liquid 3D resin into the material pool and make sure there is no debris in the material pool.
Step 2. The laser light will be guided to right coordinates according to the computer-controlled mirror in the printer.
Step 3. The scraper sweeps the material pool after one layer in being cured, which ensures an even surface.
Step 4. The balance weight can make sure the liquid resin remains in the same place even though the print bed goes down.
Step 5. The process repeats and the laser light scans the resin through the dancing spots, and curing the surface into a right shape.
Step 6. The printing bed lifts up, and the resin 3d prints will emerge from the material pool.
Step 7. Takes time to wait for residual un-cured resins running down.
Step 8. Send resin parts for post-processing, including ultrasonic cleaning, removing supports, re-curing through UV light, sanding, sandblasting, threading, tapping, painting, etc.
1. What kind of resin do resin printers use?
2. How much does printing resin cost?
3. What are the post-processing options for the resin 3D printed parts?
4. Are resin prints food safe?
5. Are resin 3D prints fragile?
Well, it's true that most standard resins are relatively brittle compared to other 3D printing materials and aren't recommended for stressed parts or outdoor use, although there are tough and durable resins on the market specifically formulated for stronger applications, and they can be really strong.
6. Are resin 3D prints waterproof?
Resin 3D prints can be made watertight. The liquid photopolymers are waterproof when hardened and cured, but you'll need to ensure no cracks, holes, or gaps are on the print for it to be watertight. Also, cured resin 3D prints won't absorb water, making them perfect for many purposes.
7. Should I hollow my resin print?
It depends on the purpose of the finished product. For example, solid prints are often used in medical and jewelery-making professions where the print needs to be more durable.
8. How do I keep resin from cracking?
Keep the resin parts away from heat source.
9. How large of a part can I print with resins?
Please check our design guidelines for resin parts here. For more sizes, please contact our Customer Success Manager or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
10. Can I printing moving parts with resin 3D Printing?
Yes. Please make sure the clearance of the moving sections meets the design guidelines.
