We will be organizing a long-distance trip for all company employees from May 23 to 28. During this period, there will be no replies to messages or shipments. Sorry for the inconvenience.

How to reduce the warpage and shrinkage of the prints?

Regarding shrinkage:

RESIONE resin prints have a dimensional error within +-0.3% compared to the original size of the 3D file.

Here are a few shrinkage rates you might need to know:

  • The volume shrinkage rate of our resin is about 7%, which represents the density change from liquid to solid. The parameter of volume shrinkage has basically no reference significance in the field of resin 3D printing.
  • Shrinkage of the size of the unpostcured print compared to the original size of the 3D file:This is related to resin, LCD pixel size, 3D printer and print settings, no specific data can be derived.
  • During post-curing and storage, the size of prints will also shrink. The final size shrinkage of our resin prints is about 0-0.2%.

How to reduce the shrinkage and warpage of prints?

  • Choose a resin with low shrinkage, this is the most efficient method, such as RESIONE M70 or D01S

  • Resin liquid will corrode the prints, post- processing as soon as possible after printing.

  • Avoid immersing the prints in cleaning agents such as alcohol or IPA for more than 5 minutes.

  • Clean the resin on the surface of the prints and dry them immediately.

  • Try to choose a UV lamp with a power of 30~80w for post-curing, and the curing time should be as short as possible.

  • Post-curing first, then remove the supports, the strong supports help to slow down the shrinkage and deformation of the prints
