How Do I Set Up the Printing Parameters?

2019-06-27T17:36:15-07:00

Another key part of learning the printing process is to understand how to set the printing parameters within in the Kudo3D software. There is no “one-fits-all” parameter number that can be duplicated for any type of resin or with any type of 3D design. This being said, the printing parameters will differ every time you [...]

Why Cured Layers Could Stick to the Resin Container

2019-06-27T17:36:15-07:00

For a bottom up stererolithography 3D printer, a cured resin layer may stick to the vat floor and be hard to separate. Silicone is often used as the vat floor because of its elasticity that can facilitate the separation of cured layers. However, the resins will gradually react with silicone and the silicone will turn [...]

What is Background Curing?

2019-06-27T17:36:15-07:00

What exactly is background curing and what is the impact of it on your print? Background exposure, as the name suggests, is the light that appears in the background. Ideally, the background should be fully black with no light at all. However, for DLP, there always is residual light scattering back into the lens and [...]

Understanding Kudo3D High Resolution Calibration Model

2019-06-27T17:36:15-07:00

Other than being one very interesting print, the Kudo3D high resolution calibration model has some special key points that will help you optimize the exposure time for a specific resolution. In addition to seeking normal exposure times, this high resolution sample also provides a plethora of other information about the resin. Once the normal exposure [...]

Experience share – How to prepare 3D printable image files (I)

2019-06-27T17:36:16-07:00

We have printed many 3D models during the development of our 3D printer Titan1. Preparing a 3D image file before printing is not as straightforward as preparing a 2D image file. Here we are going to share our experiences for preparing a 3D printable model. If you design your own 3D models, you may skip [...]
