wave length of Resin

Post#1 » Thu Aug 08, 2013 9:08 pm

Hello, friends:
I bought 1kg resin from local supplier because the USA is too far to send liquid. The wave length of this resin is 410nm, Ec=8.7mj/cm2, Dp=0.16mm. I didn't buy 355nm or lower, because the projector has UV filter.
I printed twice, the thickness of each layer is 0.0635mm, the exposure time of first printing is 10 seconds, no cured at all; the second time is 32s, nothing cured also.
It's my first print, no experience before today.
What wavelength should be? Or what parameter should I set in the print?

It is 405nm. Did you add photo initiator?

Try to lower the thickness, add some pigment and increase exposure.

Not the answer, but using an LED source that emits at 470 nm with trail off to about 400 nm does cure the B9-red, but that is really the opposite of what you want to know.

Visible light ends around 400 nm, so I'm not sure how strong the projector emits in that range if really at all.
