UV and heat treatment at separate times?

Hey everyone!

I think I’ve read that you can UV cure and heat treat your print at separate times. Has anyone here had success with this?

My thoughts are to use this home made setup I created from this article on instructables.com and a $40 convection oven toaster. Post process the print in IPA, let dry, transfer to paint can with uv lights for 60 min, then transfer to toaster oven at 140°F for 60min.

Will this work? Thanks in advance for your help!

Heat and UV work in parallel to cure parts so it’s best to keep them as one process if you’re able. With that setup, you might be surprised by how much the LEDs heat the chamber and it might be sufficient for a full cure.

Thanks for the reply!
I’m experimenting with the High Temp resin, and want to make sure it cures enough.
