3D Printing Workflow

Make sure to wear nitrile gloves anytime you intend to handle liquid resin.

1. Check the model

Make sure to prepare your model well, to not get a failed print, you should check the orientation, dig hole, and support settings.

CHITUBOX has some great tutorials to explain how to add support

2. Printing profile settings. (exposure time, lift speed, etc.)

Your local printing environment and resin setting greatly affect the final print quality. Conjure series resin requests a temperature of 25-30 ℃.

3. Check printer status before printing

3.1 Make sure your printer vat is clean,(no extra piece in the vat, or it will affect the quality and can damage your machine). there is a video by Nerdtronic Why Resin 3D Prints Fail

3.2 Make sure your plate has been levelled following the manufacturers' instructions for normal resin, it is easy to print,  The Conjure series resin, especially for the sculpt resin, has a higher viscosity, you must ensure the bed has been properly levelled before printing, It shallow penetration depth makes the adhesion between layers not very strong. (For bigger printers the levelling is more important)

3.3 Adding more lifting distance and reducing the lifting speed will help to get better results.

4. Shake the resin before use

You need to shake the bottle for a few minis if your resin has not used in a long time.

5. Clean the prints

It is better to clean the resin before post-curing because the chemical reaction is not completed during the initial printing. There is uncured resin left on your prints.

We recommend using Ethanol or IPA and a painter brush (or any brush made of hair) to remove uncured resin. A wash station is a great way to clean prints well. 

For some complex print, an ultrasonic cleaner is the best choice to clean it.

6. Dry and post-curing

Dry the prints before curing them, and use 395~405nm UV light for about 60s to cure them. If you need more time to cure the prints, maybe your prints have not cleaned well.

7. Surface Primer and Paint to make the prints more durable

The resin material is not that good in durability compared to the filament. The humidity and light affect it even if it is post-cured.

Advantages of surface primer:

  • Colour anti-interference ability, cover the original colour of the model parts to prevent colour deviation.
  • Easy to reflect the details after a surface primer base to facilitate the inspection of surface defects and textures.
  • The surface primer base has stronger adhesion to the paint to prevent paint loss.

8. Frequently asked printing issue

We also write many articles on CHITUBOX website to help you understand better what printing issue you may meet, and why it happens.
