Hello! I am going to print a bottle similar to Durable Resin spray bottle that always appears in formlabs videos and website. (PICTURES)
Does that print have a hole to help scape the air on it? Because is going to create great vacuum effect and deformation.
I have an issue with it. I don´t want to put supports on it and the bottle is almost as big as the printing size.
If you have any advice, otherwise I will add some holes on the bottom of the model and close them later.
Rotate 180º and print it so the bottle’s neck is pointed towards the build platform and not the resin tank.
True, that is another option. Thanks @Randy_Cohen!
What about the print of the picture? Is not going to suffer that vacuum deformation if is printed that way?
I don’t think that this will deform, depending on wall thickness. We’ve printed serveral hollow parts with a similar setup and form tolerances were all okay!
It`s about 1mm thick.
Let´s see what comes out!
It is not a simple bottle, it is quite narrow in the neck.
I will try first with bottom towards platform, neck towards resin, no internal supports, and 4 holes 3mm Ø at the base to let scape the air.
In the videos, we do have a drain hole towards the bottom that gets closed after printing. If you’re printing something similar, I’d go with @Randy_Cohen’s advice and rotate such that the neck is facing the build platform. That orientation might be less ideal for shooting videos but should prove easier to print
Thanks @Frew, You are right! When I saw the video I was like ( AWESOME PRINT RESULT!!).
Then when I was going to print it… the feeling was different.
