Resin Settings for Anycubic Photon Series 3D Printer

Resin is the most important material for LCD/SLA 3D printing, which can be used to produce 3D printed objects directly. It is a kind of material for printing objects in 3D printers, especially for desktop 3D printers.

Moreover, the resin is the easiest way to get started with 3D printing, but you may get confused when it comes to resin 3D printer settings, do not worry, we are here to write the best resin settings for Anycubic resin 3d printer below.

NOTE:

1. If the printing environment is lower than 68°F/20°C, it is recommended to increase the exposure time by 30%, and reduce the lifting speed by 30%.

2. The data comes from the Anycubic Laboratory and is for reference only.

3. Different printing parameters and post-processing processes will present different results. If you encounter problems during printing, feel free to contact our customer service for support.

4. The following processing reference parameters are suitable for the factory default energy state of the Resin 3D printer. If the light energy is adjusted, the reference processing parameters need to be adjusted accordingly.

5. If you still fail to print on the default parameters, Please contact our customer service for professional guidance.

    Could you please add the settings for your craftsman range please


  • Mrinal

    Hello,

    I have been looking for a resin based printer which can print delicate small parts with high accuracy, speed is not an issue for me. Can you suggest some?
    Also i am looking for conductive resins or if customisable resin is an option or not. Do let me know.

    Thank you.


  • Robert

    what settings should i use for the photon mono SQ? what printer is similar that i can use?


  • Péter

    Good sheet of settings but there is no clue how much UV power did you use. I is a very important parameter I think
