We have been using the Form 2 printer now for over a year for r&d purposes and we are now looking into the possibility of using the printer to print small batch production items.
The parts themselves are easy to print and we have never had issues with them, but we are wondering what the reliability of the parts would be like for production parts.
We use the Engineering Rigid resin, it works wonders for us, the issue we are facing with it however is finishing and painting these parts.
We currently do the cleaning and curing ourselves but are now looking into the Form Wash and Form Cure for more reliability in finishing these parts.
If anyone has had any experience with using the form 2 for production I’d love to hear your input and experiences doing so.
Any issues we could potentially face?
Long term reliability of the parts?
Is paint fading an issue?
I have many questions but I’m eager to find out more about using this printer for more than just prototyping.
Thanks in advance!
