Resin that doesn't absorb moisture

Postby CaptainBisquick » Sun Feb 28, 2016 2:43 am

I'm using the LittleRP with MakerJuice SF in green, and my prototypes absorb moisture, which causes them to warp. Does anyone have suggestions on an easy fix for this? Would the Made Solid resin be better?

Has anyone tried this technique with MakerJuice? I'm going to give it a try. Would love to know if this has made a difference for anyone else.

It does work. I've tried with several resin brands. If, instead of water, you use glycerin it's even better.

Thanks! I just ordered some glycerin. Since the resin absorbs moisture, leaving it in water makes me nervous.
