HOW CAN I DISPOSE OF RESIN

by nosrev

Solid Resin
Cured solid resin can be disposed of in the trash.

Liquid Resin
WARNING When handling resin wear protective gloves/protective clothing/eye protection/face protection
Uncured liquid resin must be disposed of according to local regulations. In some jurisdictions, e.g., California, it is classified as hazardous waste. Contact your local municipal waste system for guidance on proper disposal.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD LIQUID RESIN BE DUMPED DOWN THE DRAIN OR SINK.

If you cure liquid resin before disposal you can dispose of it in the trash. To do this, pour the resin into a transparent plastic bag and leave it out in the sun for a week or so. Exposure to the sunlight will cure and harden the resin, at which point, you can safely dispose of it in the trash.

What Resin can i use?

  • SparkMaker Resin
  • Wanhao UV Resin
  • PhotoCentric3D UV DLP Firm
  • monocure 3D Resin
  • micromake water washable rapid resin

Should be working (but not confirmed jet - comment if using one of these successful):

  • Liqcreate Resin
  • FunToDo

Swapping resins

by OriginalPiR8

Unlike a typical FDM printer where you warm the filament and pull it out, resins are viscous and sticky. Pouring away is simply not enough. So how do you swap from one resin to another?

Is it a case of angling the printer such that only one corner is lowest point and letting it drip for a few days?

Tips on how to deal with resin cure time.

by sacy

Hi all

would like to share some tips on using dye color resin..

common resin cure time var from 10sec to 22sec.
Rapid resin cure time may be as fast as under 7sec
and cure time also depend on the amount of UV lights output.. do adj your uv light output strength.

Do note the longer you cure your layer, your x/y will lost it accuracy.. if you are looking for accuracy, use a lower cure time..

1: if you are using a clear resin or default color translucent or opaque resin - do use the recommend cure time stated by manufacturer
2: if you going to mix color to your clear resin, let say a red dye.. and your resin will be kind of translucent red, do add extra 1 or 2 sec or more to your cure time.

  1. if you going to mix white or black in your color mixed clear resin. normally your resin will be come opaque in color, do add extra 3 to 5 sec or more for your cure time.

Why color dyed resin needed to take more time to cure, this is due to the added color pigment, as this color pigment will block out some amount of light, hence it will take longer to cure compare to common clear resin.

just my 2 cents of thoughts :)
