How do you use and store your resin? We are using clear resin to apply a coat to some of our printed prototypes. I’ve looked, without success, for a brown glass jar for the resin. This morning I had an idea; why not print some cups & lids? The attached stl files are for cups that cover 6 different amounts of resin. They are 1" d., 1.5" d. & 2" d., each with 2 different depths. There is a lid for each size. I’ve included an stl file for each size. They are oriented such that all three will fit in the build chamber of the Form 2. You will have to move them around a little, but I caution you against using the auto layout function, it created clashes when I tried it. I’ve attached a jpg showing my layout. I will use black resin for its light blocking capability. I intend to use plastic spoons to place my selected resin in the cups and I found a package of 50 ‘artist’ brushes on the big A for less than $10. I don’t intend to clean brushes! Let me know if you use this system with any success.
