Elastic 50A Resin Tear Repair


#1

Hello,

I am using Elastic 50A Resin for a project and we need to place holes in the printed model, but if the model is pulled at all, the hole rips throughout the entire print. Is there a way to strengthen around the hole so it doesn’t tear or a way to repair the tears so the print is useable?

Thanks!

You can repair a torn or fractured print by applying a little resin to the seam, holding it together, and exposing to UV. I am in fact repairing a busted print this exact way right now.

As for strengthening around the holes, you’ll have to post some pictures, your description isn’t good enough to make any meaningful suggestions…

Does the resin really help? Thanks for the advice, I’ll try it and tell you my progress.
