Post-processing resin prints: Anycubic Wash and Cure vs Wash and Cure Plus

ZDNet

Welcome to ZDNet's DIY-IT project lab, where I'm testing resin 3D printers for your entertainment and edification. Today, we'll be looking at the Anycubic family of washing and curing stations. The accompanying video shows those devices in action. Which 3D printer is right for your business? We've evaluated the offerings of leading printers, all capable of creating 3D objects, but with a wide-range of characteristics.


Best 3D printer for business and home use

Do you want to get started in the wonderful world of 3D printing, but don't want to spend too much money? You can get started for as little as $100 (although things start to get better over about $200). We present a batch of really great options for beginners that will have you cranking out Baby Yoda replicas in no time. Initially relegated to large industrial processes, they experienced a bit of a boom in the mid-2010s, when the technology became affordable to small offices, design firms, and hobbyists. Since then, 3D printers have evolved along with a number of vectors. Low-cost, high-resolution resin printers have joined filament-based (or FDM) printers in the home and hobbyist market. Printers with large print areas have become available at both the low and high end, with lower-end printers optimizing for the very basic heated plates needed for large prints, while the higher-end solutions add sealed chambers, temperature management, and cameras. Printers with dual extruders are becoming more common, and the slicing software needed to prepare prints is becoming more sophisticated.

Well, this is disturbing: My resin 3D prints are melting

ZDNet

There was nasty gray sludge on the shelf, under a 3D print of a chess rook. It was not the way I wanted to end a long day. The rook was one of the first prints I generated on the original Elegoo Mars printer. I reviewed it last year. The rook is the sample print that comes with the printer.
