3D printing is a lot like CNC milling or any other physical manufacturing process, the good results come down to the fundamentally correct settings. In an effort to help those working in the resin printing space, [Adam Bute] Resin has put together a community database of printing settings.
The site has relevant sections with a variety of resin 3D printers, arranged by the manufacturer. Those who are interested in finding the right settings for their given resin and printer just need to click and find the appropriate data. Settings are crowdsourced, provided by developers, community members and its users [Adam]Of Maker Instructor Website
While it’s still important to run a validation test on a resin printer to get the best results, having a community-based list of settings can help users get up and running much faster than they might otherwise be. While community contributions may not yet be made directly, we suspect that such a feature is working.
We’ve seen similar component databases for molten-plastic printers before and they’ve proven to be valuable to the community. We are sure that this resin database will be adopted in the same way. Give us a line if you know of other great resources for printing tips and tricks!
