Have you been wanting to learn about 3D resin printing? Then this is the course for you!
3D resin printing is becoming increasingly popular for good reason. Over the past few years, resin printers and materials have gotten more and more affordable, opening up a whole new world of 3D printing to enthusiasts.
Resin printing differs from traditional FDM 3D printing in that it uses lightwaves to create smooth and detailed prints out of a liquid photo polymer resin. This zero-waste process is faster and can create much more finely detailed prints than FDM printers.
The process to create 3D resin prints can seem a little daunting at first, even if you’re familiar with traditional FDM printing, but once you understand how to prepare a file, send it to the printer, and clean the finished prints, the results are stunning! 3D resin prints are incredibly detailed and beautiful.
In this course, I will walk you through every part of the 3D resin printing process. We will cover:
The different types of 3D resin printers
Factors involved in deciding which resin printer is right for you
Different resins you can use when printing
How to prepare your files for printing using the leading 3D resin slicer, Chitubox
How to properly post-process your files: removing them from the print bed, removing supports, cleaning and curing
Finishing your prints: Sanding, priming and painting
Who this course is for:
- Creators who are interesting 3D Printing
- People interested in creating 3D prints to extend their creativity
- 3D Modelers looking to bring their creations to life
