Which 3d Resin Printer Do You Use?
@rachelkarpf I tried a Krylon UV protectant, and a UV resistant Poly spray. Neither had good results.
For important items, I end up prototyping in the UV resins and then molding and casting them with Alumilite Clear. I don't love it - its a long process and discourages me from making some things (that I wouldn't know how to mold vs 3d print). So I'm definitely open to suggestions!
@saynotsweetanne So you print a piece with your 3D printer, make a mold and then use UV resin?
I found this article that might be helpful: https://www.smooth-on.com/support/faq/210/?fbclid=IwAR2rZZyvILPjOydxY8D-lKkNgYyBqvovMwFphaQ_rMyHm4nfN9AJyWEJNoM
Hello! New to the group here:) I have 5 Elegoo Resin printers and really enjoy what they produce. I have always been fascinated with miniatures and thought I would put these printers in production for some mini pieces.
My question is, which resin do you prefer to work with water base or non-water base. I have been leaning more with water base due to the lack of order using 90 proof ISO alcohol for clean up. Curios to what others use.
Thank you for allowing me to be apart of this community and learn more about miniatures!
@theprintableguy welcome!! I have to admit... I didn't know there was a difference! Now I must go research. Like Holly, I use Anycubic Resin.
