How long does it take for UV to cure resin prints?

Resin 3D prints generally take one to five minutes to fully cure under high UV light. But the curing time really depends on the size of your print and the curing method you use. Miniatures, for instance, take a minute while average-sized objects take three to five minutes to cure under UV light.

Does UV light make resin cure faster?

Short answer: UV light won’t affect the cure of non-UV resin. Strong UV may even discolor or degrade some types of non-UV resin. UV-curing resin works on a different mechanism. A one-part resin is stable until UV of a particular wavelength breaks down a component in the resin and causes it to cure.
