Instructions for Use "IFU"
These generic guidelines can be used for our durable 3D resins, with the exception of special resin systems, such as our water soluble sacrificial 3D resins for printing sacrificial molds and other high tech applications, which need specific and more detailed protocols and instructions for use:
Most of our 3Dresyns are photopolymer or light-curing resins which have been designed for SLA, DLP, LCD and Inkjet printers working with lights from 200 to 420 nm and higher upon request, including wavelengths at 385 and 405 nm.
3D printing guidelines are available for selecting in just few easy steps the optimum printing settings
The final physical and mechanical properties of any 3D printed material depend, among other things, on the printer specifications and printing settings, such as wavelength, power, exposure time, cleansing protocol (chemicals used for cleansing, time and temperature used during cleaning, etc) and light post-processing or curing (wavelength, power, postcuring time, temperature, etc).
Our services vary from basic online support services where your technical questions will be answered directly related to fine tuning, optimisation of printing settings, postcuring and cleansing process to a more in depth consulting service where detailed recommendations of the right 3D Printing System will be provided for your specific needs and goals. Our services can include recommendations of all the required instrumentation: 3D printer with radiometry, light power and temperature control, washing and postcurintg units and all the basic tools and training for start printing professionally straight away.
3D print cleaning process: Cleaning 3D prints
Our Cleaning Fluid Bio is ideal for removing any uncured 3D resin from the surface of the prints. It is biocompatible, safe, non flammable and does not cause the lost of the smell sense nor attacks plastic parts as isopropanol. 3D prints can be rinsed in our Cleaning Fluid Bio for cleaning them without the any of the mentioned hassles related to isopropanol.
Light post-curing of the cleaned prints can be done directly in a light box or by dipping them in a clear glass or plastic container filled with our Cleaning Fluid Bio. A long light postcuring is recommended for ensuring that the printed material is cured to its maximum degree.
Chemical post-curing and cleansing can be done with our Cure tester and Purification kit (optional, ideal for ultra safe biocompatible systems)
