Re: Floating resin handling

I've only used salt water and FuntoDo IB. (which has been my favorite so far, seems to hold pigment for a long time)

I've just accepted that its gonna be messy. My vat is a tupperware so I can cover it for storage.

Re: Full Video tutorial on building a topdown DLP printer

I've seen videos but of very specific sections of the process. This is over an hour long showing every step in detail, and it took quite a while to put it together.

Re: Full Video tutorial on building a topdown DLP printer

Getting prints to stick to build plate

Hi all, I'm having trouble getting large surface area prints to adhere to the build plate. (peeling up around the corners) Thinking of sanding down my steel build plate to get better grip. Anyone have suggestions on how to get good ahesion?

Best,
Vaughan
