  1. Use orientation to minimize large cross sections areas.
  2. For full platforms and parts with cross sectional areas, print quality is best in Premium mode. Or add 1-2 seconds to slow down the Interval Pause Time and the Interval Down Time in the Build Style by an extra 1-2 seconds.
  3. For best results use the Resin Mixer to gently stir between prints and after the resin has been sitting overnight.

    CAUTION: Do NOT press down on the film when stirring.

  4. Verify proper cleaning method. Insure cleaning solvents are not saturated and parts are allowed to dry before post cure.

  3. Remove parts from platform after printing. After 12-hours large parts can detach from print platform and fall into material tray.
  4. For best results use the Resin Mixer to gently stir between prints and after the resin has been sitting overnight.

    CAUTION: Do NOT press down on the film when stirring.

  1. Manually check support location before printing.
  2. In thicker cross sections for large rings or non-ring geometries, go up in cure depth to avoid delamination between layers. Go up in 10 µm increments to prevent over curing features.
  3. For full platforms and parts with cross sectional areas, print quality is best in Premium mode. Or add 1-2 seconds to slow down the Interval Pause Time and the Interval Down Time in the Build Style by an extra 1-2 seconds.
  4. If positive features have poor resolution, the Border Thickness parameter in the build style could be increased up to 20%. It is not suggested to go higher or negative features might get closed or too small.
  5. If detail is blurry, check for proper cleaning method. Insure cleaning solvents are not saturated and parts are allowed to dry before post cure.
  6. If detailing is still blurred, lower cure depth in 10 µm increments.
  7. If detail remains an issue or accuracy is hard to achieve run the accuracy wizard for this build style.
  8. Verify proper cleaning method. Insure cleaning solvents are not saturated and parts are allowed to dry before post cure.
  9. Make sure all IPA has been evaporated off, and allow for parts to dry completely. If surface finish is still shiny and not matte after cleaning, not all resin has been removed and it will show up in the casting. Repeat cleaning and drying until parts do not have any excess material.

  1. Use orientation to minimize large cross-sectional areas.

  2. Orient part to print non-flat surfaces. Flat surfaces may show more support scarring than other Figure 4 materials.

  3. For full platforms and parts with large cross-sectional areas, print quality is best in Premium build style. Alternatively, you could go into the Build Style menu and add 1-2 seconds to both the Interval Pause Time and Interval Down Time.

  4. Verify proper cleaning method. Ensure cleaning solvents are not saturated and parts are allowed to dry before post curing.

NOTE 1: Considerations for resin that has been sitting, unused, for over 1 month - If you have a resin bottle like this, simply treat it like a new bottle and mix it for the time specified in the "Brand-new bottle" column in the above chart.

NOTE 2: Ensure that you place the build in your UV curing oven in the same orientation it was printed in, as if the bottom of the oven is the print platform.
