I am currently doing some open mode testing with different 3rd party resins, namely:
- Photocentric3D Firm Grey
- Photocentric3D Hard Beige
- FunToDo F1+ Grey
- FunToDo SW Snow White (also have two dyes, yellow and black)
- Autodesk Prototyping Resin Yellow (PR57-Y)
- Nextdent Tray Blue
- Bucktown Polymers Clear ZVE500-V420
I am slowly starting to generate a spreadsheet with different settings tried for each resin, and what the results were. Does it make sense to start a type of “Master List” so Formlabs users could refer to one sheet, instead of hunting down specific comments in specific threads?
Also, should there be a common name we use to describe the technique of utilizing empty Formlabs cartridges and manually filling the resin tank (or putting the resin back in the cartridge)? Maybe “Modified Open Mode” or “Ajar Mode” or something?
