So i am working on a project for which i print several tubed structures in order to get a very low effective stiffness. I have successfully created these structures with the flexible resin (see picture). Since the elastic resin became available i am trying to print these with this resin as well. But i notice that the light bleeds trough and the resin over-cures, clogging the tubes, and imprinting a negative surface structure on the insides of the tubes.
To see if i can ‘fine tune’ the light penetration i want to mix a light blocker or a dye through the flexible resin.
I am thinking of using the Fine Tuner LB1 “Light Blocker” from 3Dresyns, but i am wondering if this additive is mixable with the elastic resin from formlabs, or if it is better to use a dye instead of a light blocker ?
