Hey everyone! I’ve been lurking on the forums for awhile and haven’t had a chance to post anything. When I bought GracefulViper, my Form 2, I was completely new to 3d printing. I’m still pretty new as I have just gotten through my second liter of resin.
Anyway! I thought I would share results with Makerjuice, since I have seen so many posts about third party resins.
I ordered two liters of MakerJuice SF in Black for 65 bucks each. I thought what the heck, if it doesn’t work I wont be out too much…
So I put the resin in an empty Blk 1 container and shove it in the machine, print a test piece and oh man the machine had a fit. It wouldnt fill right, it wasn’t full enough, it was too full, etc etc.
I had to abandon using the heater and wiper and switched on open mode.
I switched to the reccommended blk 2 settings and printed some test mechs. This time the machine had no problems and went off without a hitch.
I had heard such tales of these not working and with just a little tweaking to the settings the pieces are great!
These are about 35mm tall and were printed with the Blk2 settings at the lowest resolution. Took about 7 hours for 8 pieces, with structures and all.
Pardon the pictures my phone isn’t all that great at them. Short story is they look pretty good and are nice and strong. Some torture tests with pinching the legs together were quite impressive. I’ve found resin as a whole to be far more brittle than I was expecting, but the MJ seems to be fairly flexible as well.
Thanks guys for sharing all you do. It is quite inspirational!
