Our Monocure3D Rapid Resin 405nm Supplier Australia product range is designed for low powered LED DLP type printers such as the Wanhao Duplicator 7. Is black the new white?

How should I handle the resin?
- Shake the bottle well before every use.
- Store the resin in a dark cool place.
- Clean parts and spills with RESINAWAY or IPA
- Filter Resin back into the bottle when not printing.
- Post-cure using a 405nm light to avoid yellowing.
Should I Sand the Build Plate?
The Duplicator 7 has had a few different build plate finishes. The early models came with a brushed aluminium surface, then they brought out a painted black one, and the latest version has a highly polished aluminium surface. If you have either of the last two mentioned, for the best adhesion, especially with any darker pigmented colours. To help with this, you may choose to sand the build plate to restore it to the brushed aluminium surface. This is best done by using masking tape to stick a piece of 240 grit sandpaper to a completely flat surface (Glass is perfect), then rub your build plate back and forth until all the paint is removed. Using an electric sander is not recommended as it could make the build plate surface uneven and potentially not completely flat. Remember to re-home the printer when done as the build plate will be a bit thinner!
