Conjure resin settings

Conjure resin settings profiles for CHITUBOX.

Conjure resin is designed for functional gadgets and miniature printing. This series has a higher viscosity compared with standard resin. Our setting aims to make the best result and request 1~2s more exposure time to let the material work better. You can reduce the exposure time base on your application. normally, miniature prints request a lower exposure time than engineering pieces. the settings also depend greatly on your printer and pre-supported file.

All conjure resins are tough-like resins, which will bend slightly during post-curing when printing thin pieces. we recommend you reduce lifting speed and retract speed when the print fails.

3D Printing Workflow

Make sure to wear nitrile gloves anytime you intend to handle liquid resins.

1. Check the model

Make sure to prepare your model well, to not get a failed print, you should check the orientation, dig hole, and support settings.

CHITUBOX has some great tutorials to explain how to add support

2. Printing profile settings. (exposure time, lift speed, etc)

Your local printing environment and resin setting greatly affect the final print quality. Conjure series resin requests temperature at 25-30 ℃.

Conjure resin printing profile guide, Click here

You can also download the exposure test file to get the best settings for your printers. Click here

3. Check printer status before printing

3.1 Make sure your vat is clean,(no extra piece in the vat, or it will affect the quality). there is a video by Nerdtronic Why Resin 3D Prints Fail

3.2 Make sure your plate leveling well, for normal resin, it is easy to print,  The Conjure series resin especially for the sculpt resin has a higher viscosity, you have to level the bed very well before printing, It shallow penetration depth makes the adhesion between layers not very strong. (For bigger printers the leveling is more important)

3.3 Add more lifting distance and reducing the lifting speed will help to get better results.

4. Shake the resin before use

You need to shake the bottle for a few minis if your resin is not used in a long time.

5. Clean the prints

It is better to clear the resin before post-curing because the chemical reaction is not completed during the first printing. There is uncured resin left on your prints.

We recommend using Ethanol or IPA and a painter brush (or any brush made of hair) to remove uncured resins. Ensure the prints are cleaned well if you have a wash station.

For some complex print, an ultrasonic cleaner is the best choice to clean it.

6. Dry and post-curing

Dry the prints before curing them, and use 395~405nm UV light for about 60s to cure them. If you need more time to cure the prints, maybe your prints are not cleaned well.

7. Putty and Paint to make the prints more durable

The resin material is not that good in durability compared to the filament. The humidity and light affect it even if it is post-cured.

Advantages of putty:

  • Color anti-interference ability, cover the original color of the model parts to prevent color deviation.
  • Easy to reflect the details after putty base to facilitate the inspection of surface defects and textures.
  • The putty base has stronger adhesion to the paint to prevent paint loss.

8. Frequently asked printing issue

We also write many articles on CHITUBOX website to help you understand better what printing issue you may meet, and why it happens.
