What you need when using a rapid prototype printer
I want to start using the 3D printer right away, but let me introduce you to what you need to prepare besides the 3D printer and the things that might be useful if you have them ready before you start.
Resin for 3D printers. There are various types of resin, but I'm going to use the gray resin which special characteristics resemble those of the ABS.
Note that this alcohol is highly flammable and volatile, so please be extra careful when using it. Do not use the alcohol near a fire.
Why! Why is it not going well!?
For this test, I'm going to use SKring, which is the data prepared by SK Honpo, the shop where I bought Phrozen Shuffle. I could use other data, I know, but they recommended this data to me, so I decided to use it. Surprise, I'm actually quite obedient when it comes to following tutorials.
Type the IP address on your web browser and you will be taken to the control page of Phrozen Shuffle. Use the page to upload the data of the 3D model that you want to print and the data will be sent to your printer.
Check the top left side of the printer touch screen to see how the UV light is being projected using the LCD. The white areas are those exposed to the UV light while the black areas are the masked parts.
Two hours later...
But the failures continued for several days.
I went crazy and decided to create a resin plate by radiating the entire surface of the LCD with UV light...
