Many people recommend not to use a resin 3D printer in living spaces, but rather in places that aren’t occupied. You can build a ventilation system to reduce fumes.

What are SLA printers used for?

Stereolithography (SLA) is an industrial 3D printing process used to create concept models, cosmetic prototypes, and complex parts with intricate geometries in as fast as 1 day. A wide selection of materials, extremely high feature resolutions, and quality surface finishes are possible with SLA.

Do parts printed in UV resin need to be post cured?

Post-curing is not required for Standard Resins, but increases parts’ strength and stability. Post-cured parts are also generally less tacky, which makes them easier to sand and paint.

How long do you have to cure resin prints?

Generally, a 3D resin print will take 1-5 minutes to cure, if being cured under a UV lamp. If your 3D print is a miniature, it will be around 1 minute to cure. But if it is a little larger and more averagely sized, it can be around 3-5 minutes to fully cure.

Can you make your own resin printer?
