Ive printed my first truly successful print and was curious how long the print needed to cure to lose all of the stickiness to the resin. Ive had parts kind of “weep” resin and wanted to know how long i should leave in the UV cure box. Two days with occasional turning of the parts?
They have thought of everything!
It can help to submerge the prints in a container of water first and put it under the UV lights for like 5 minutes–oxygen inhibits the resin curing so by putting it in water it blocks the oxygen and allows the outside of the part to cure more easily. I find that about 5 minutes in the water makes the outside nice and then dry it off and put it back under the lights for the 30-45 minutes to finish.
