So just checking with everyone. After your print you are all removing supports and then sanding if needed BEFORE uv curing, correct?


Sander van Deijl

Remove support before post-curing, but I’d sand after post-curing. Altough, I don’t need to sand.

Some people do, some don't. I like to on model that are tough. If the model has small parts that might bend before curing I'll cure it first.

Ryan Walmsley
2020-03-29 22:29:10

I see a mixture of things, some say to cure with supports some say not. I usually wash with supports, then cure without supports but may try with supports as one delicate model fell apart when trying to remove them.

Matt Stone

Always removing before curing. The group suggested putting it in hot water before pulling off the supports and holy shit.. it works so well. I do t have scarring on the prints, they don't break the prints. It's amazing.

Ernest Sandridge Ill

Yeah, warm water for a few seconds and it practically peels off. It's satisfying like picking a scab

Gary Slovinsky

Definitely the best bet on delicate and non-delicate prints is clean then warm to hotish water and supports almost fall off on their own. THEN cure. Sand as needed. Cutting those supports off after curing causes micro spears bouncing around the room.

Also check your contact depth into the model. Me, I only go .12 into the model.

Robert Clauff
2020-03-30 04:23:45

Gary Slovinsky ok. That being said I just finished my first print and the detail is amazing, however with the supports off there is still some post.
What do you use for supports setting on yours? On my Tevo I would have good prints, but my supports would make it look like shit until I found out the right settings and now my prints are almost flawless. Looking to do the same with my resin prints. ?

Robert Clauff i use a contact depth of .12 and mostly med and small supports. BUT I don’t print minis or (at this point) extremely high detail. The most detailed item I’ve made was an agents of shield/hydra combined coin, a couple mm bigger than a quar ter. Printed vertical.
But I still stand by ipa/mean green wash then warm to hot water for initial support removal then cure. But as you mentioned having the right settings is key. My settings wouldn’t help you, i print more simplistic designs which require less finessing than most other prints.

Gary Slovinsky
2020-03-30 04:53:41

Robert Clauff (addendum) I’m confused here. On your post to me was most of it related to FDM prints? I’m only asking since your last sentence says you were looking to do the same with resin prints?

As a side note: I finished printing off the easy be d leveling adapter (photon) and i neglected to remove the supports first in hot water, I then cured it. And after removing thr supports was a nightmare and the thumb screws look like crap.

Robert Clauff
2020-03-30 09:38:46

Gary Slovinsky yes i was talking about my Tevo Tornado. I want to get my resin prints to the point where I hardly have to touch it after I cure it.

O Sole Mio ........ I ordered my Photon S together with a UV curing box, but as I monitored the logistics it came in to my country and now shipped out back to China perhaps due to the limited lockdown, anyway I am no complaint as its better this then I have the curing box but not printer ? ? ? ? without curing box I have my lovely sun ☀️

O sole mio........ 我訂購了我的光子s和一個紫外線治癒盒, 但是當我監測了物流, 它進入我的國家, 現在運回中國, 也許是因為有限的封鎖, 我沒有抱怨 這更好, 那麼我有治癒盒, 但沒有印表機 ? ? ? ? 沒有治癒盒子, 我有我可愛的太陽 ☀️

What are the best Chitubox settings to 3d print a Funko as smooth as i can? I'm using the basic Anycubic White. It says UV Wavelength 405nm


Sean O'Hayer
2020-03-29 11:08:45

First, the model needs to be high quality. Without that, settings won't matter.

For print settings, we need to know what resin you are using.

Bruno Shepard
2020-03-29 11:09:55

It is high quality.

Sean O'Hayer

Bruno Shepard start here and tweak as you learn. This says Anycubic White should be around 15 seconds exposure time per layer at 0,05mm layer height.


Bruno Shepard
2020-03-29 12:44:12

Sean O'Hayer thanks mate!

Mi Ha

Noone can tell you the best settings, because they depend on so many factors. Do an RERF test and you'll get to what works best for your current conditions.

has anyone used the ELEGOO clear red? check the recommended setting didn't see it. was curious if you'd share your standards uv times. Thanks

EDIT: my LCD screen is probably failing. After the classic "turning off and back on again" made the UV test actually show. So we'll see if that will actually work for now. I've had the printer for like 3.5 months now.
I'm having some problems for the first time since I bought it
I'm using Anycubic gray, 90 secs with 6 base layers, and 6 seconds normal exposure time. I'll get a job done, and then the next job fails.
Does there need to be a cool down time between jobs? Inside the printer was a bit warm.
I did have to reset the z=0 once because for some reason it wasn't going all the way down. I hope something isn't wrong with my printer.
I've had several jobs within the past couple days end up like the picture below.


Bill Griffin
2020-03-29 03:22:07

Lol, I thought it was cheese

Chris Crute
2020-03-29 03:23:13

I had something similar and what I discovered was that a job would complete but then the next would fail because of resin left on the fep from the successful one. Not 100% cured but enough to make it fail.

Turned out the LCD was failing and was Curing a 'shadow' on the fep between layers when it should have been dark.

Changed the screen and it was fixed, improvement in print quality too!

Benjamin Matthew Harding
2020-03-29 03:28:02

That might be it. I've also emptied the vat and the fep looked fine. This is the exposure test

Benjamin Matthew Harding
2020-03-29 03:31:27

I think my screen failed. I turned it off and back on again and then it was acting normal...? That's so weird

Chris Crute
2020-03-29 03:34:01

Benjamin Matthew Harding mine looked fine on the exposure test but it was clesrly letting UV through when it shouldn't have.

Benjamin Matthew Harding
2020-03-29 03:37:33

Hmmm.. what's weird for me is it wasn't doing any uv light and then after turning it off and back on, it showed up again. If this doesn't print then I'll have to get a new screen for sure

Chris Crute
2020-03-29 03:39:53

If your screen is old (mine was 14 months old with no dead areas) you may be best doing it anyway, the improvement in print quality very noticeable!

Benjamin Matthew Harding
2020-03-29 03:41:05

It's only 3.5 months old, as I got it for a Christmas gift for myself.

Chris Crute
2020-03-29 03:42:16

Hmmmm, there is no saying how long each one lasts. I've heard of people having them degrade in that time though. I was just lucky.

Benjamin Matthew Harding
2020-03-29 03:42:57

Dang. Well thanks for your advice. We'll see what happens

Soo... Do our UV curing stations double as Covid sterilisation stations?

EDIT: Answer is no, you need a different wavelength light.


Chris Thompson
2020-03-29 00:58:31

nope only equivalent as the Sun UV rays if that

Jens Verwaest
2020-03-29 01:00:21

No, wrong wavelength.

Thomas Harrell
2020-03-29 01:00:34

Not quite the right wavelength.

I have one of those dish heaters in my garage. That could work really well at flash frying those buggers.

Sandro Pateishvili
2020-03-29 01:02:52

No, you need lower wavelengths

You can get either sterilization led strips or HG bulbs (which are pretty cheap actually)

Jeff Greenfield
2020-03-29 06:30:32

And you run a risk of...

Cristian Cozma
2020-03-29 19:50:42

And a lot more care, as exposure to those is very dangerous

Sandro Pateishvili
2020-03-29 20:19:40

Cristian Cozma yeah definitely, you need to get out of the room, first time you'll get a tan, the next time - something much less pleasant

Hi, there. I have one issue o think there is pro lem with UV because it is not so bright light as it was before.
And the quality of print is decreasud much.
Also there are some stripes during UV detection test and not pleasing sound. It is something like a bee's sound. Please help ?


Jim Nelson

Check the connection first, but it may be time to replace the screen entirely.

Yamamoto Tifa
2020-03-28 20:46:38

Same as above. I had this issue and photon sent me a new screen since mine was only a month old when this happened

Abror Orifkhonov
2020-03-29 03:08:07

Yamamoto Tifa Thank you, and dont you know how much is guarantee given. I mean is it still possible to replace it for free. I bought it last summer

Yamamoto Tifa
2020-03-29 03:09:58

Good luck! Contact either Photon directly or the person or company that you bought it through. I bought mine through Amazon and they helped me connect with photon. I meant it was a little difficult to reach out to them myself because there is a languag e barrier. The emails were all in English but I'm not sure if all of my intent made it through because some of their responses were off topic or seem to ignore something I already said. Eventually I was able to get a free screen from them

Abror Orifkhonov

Jim Nelson

Abror Orifkhonov I just checked and the screen is warrantied for 3 months. It's considered a consumable, because they do wear out over time.

Kendra Chalmers
2020-03-29 04:24:36

Mine does that from time to time. Usually I turn mine on without the usb plugged in. Test the screen then plug the USB in and continues to work fine - I'm guessing mine is going to need a replacement soon too though. That trick likely won't work for too much longer

I had to start a new rule in my house. While at work and ask my 24 YO daughter to see if the print is looking good, NOT to use the purple UV cat pee light to see.

Not sure what happened at the end but as you can see I’ve managed to print my first, designed by me, print. Took a little time to cut away tiny supports with the pliers. The only thing I’m not sure is the uv light, I think, seems to have dulled it, was crystal clear when I took it off. Love it when a print works. ?


Josh Berkley
2020-03-27 15:12:38

The clear-ness you are seeing is the uncured resin filling in the tiny layer lines that refract light. You can get some of that back by clear coating your clear prints. It would even better if they're flat and you can sand then clear coat

原文網址 Andy Stone
2020-03-26 21:00:26

I have something strange going on with one of my photon s printers, sometimes the uv test rectangles are showing on the lcd and other times the lcd just stays black, I have changed the lcd since this problem started and it’s still doing the same thing, any ideas as to what it could be?.


Scott Pavlich
2020-03-26 21:06:23

Yeah...unfortunately my first thought is the motherboard

Andy Stone
2020-03-27 00:20:28

Scott Pavlich I have a spare one , so I’ll try that.
