Hello Machine Bros!
Are you a proud owner of resin (SLA) 3D printers and want to improve the experience and performance of 3D printing? This article recommends the best accessories you can find in the market, things like filters, curing and washing stations, air purifiers, and more!
If you also have an FDM 3D printer we recommend you check out 2022 Best Accessories for Your FDM 3D Printer
Now let’s start!
When we are no longer going to use the resin in your 3D printer and it is time to store it, it is important to pass the resin through a filter, so it won’t contaminate the remaining resin, also, the remains of poorly cured resin can hinder the next 3D prints.
To avoid this, we can find in the market disposable and reusable filters.
3D Print Curing and Washing Station
Fortunately, there is equipment capable of washing and curing our 3D prints, which makes post-processing much easier for us. In the market, we can find them of different sizes and different brands.
Curing Only Equipment
If you are one of those who prefer to wash the pieces in different equipment (not in two-in-one stations), or you are simply one of those who prefer to wash the pieces manually, you still need to cure them.
For this, they sell ultraviolet curing lights, or even stations focused solely on curing parts.
Air Purifying Filter for Resin 3D Printers
In general, most 3D printing resins emit unpleasant and strong odors, for this reason, some resin 3D printers come with air filters to try to reduce these odors.
The good news is that if your 3D printer does not come with these filters, they can still be purchased separately as an accessory.
Flexible And Magnetic Bed
Sometimes it is not very easy to remove the resin prints from the beds of the 3D printers. For this reason, an idea similar to that used with FDM printers arose, using magnetic and flexible beds or plates.
Dark Enclosure for SLA 3D Printers
If you are one of those who keep the resin in the 3D printer tank (as many of us do), they sell some dark tents or enclosures that prevent light from entering the 3D printer. This helps preserve the resin, and also protects the printer from dust and other external agents.
