Terminology

Post by Flint » Thu Mar 15, 2018 2:27 pm

OK new Photonsters, two things you're gonna hear a lot are FEP and IPA don't worry you have not gone suddenly dyslexic or anything (unless you, like me already were) IPA is simply isopropol alcohol (Americans call it rubbing alcahol, Not sure why maybe Americans just like rubbing things more?) It's important to get as pure as you can as anything under 99% will be loaded with water and that's not good for your prints surface,

and FEP is just the clear film that sits in the bottom of your tank it was invented and is still licenced by the DuPont company and is basically a clear sheet ot Teflon that stops the print sticking to the base of the vat but lets UV (Ultra violet) light pass through and harden your resin.

Hope that helps, Ok stop gawkin, I know im good looking but you lot have prints to make!!
