Pigments to add to clear photopolymer?

Post#1 » Sun Jul 09, 2017 6:00 am

Recently I tried some photopolymer from http://www.druckwege.com (Germany) - which was said to be compatible with the B9Creator. Since that resin is transparent, it cured not only within the actual but also several layers above, ruining the entire geometry :-(

I guess one has to increase opacity as it is the case with the B9R-1 red (obviously, red particles in it since these settle at the bottom of the bottle) or MakerJuice black I used before.

I successfully coloured some of this transparent resin using a dye meant for acrylic casting but it was still transparent then and allowed too much light to travel too far again.

Has anyone here ever pigmented a transparent photopolymer of the polyetheracrylate type to avoid over-curing in z direction?

have you tried turning down your exposure time significantly as well?

Hi edefault,

Why don't you use colored ones?

I would like to try to use them.
