I am making a part for our cryostat. I have attached images of a test print I made using low-quality grey resin to test the component. It seems complicated to cure inside the object as well as the hole for the BNC connector port.
I didn’t use the supports option in Cura, because it doesn’t work well. I did try to add supports using Asura, and they look excellent. When I save the Asura object as gcode, it won’t print on either Windows or OSX.
On curing, the outside seemed to cure well in my 90 Watt UV curing chamber. I’ll have to add a reflective bottom for reflecting the UV because the object bottom was not cured properly.
However, in the holes and on the inside it was not cured at all. So somehow I’ll have to make a new device which can be placed inside to cure the print.
What I would like to ask is:
- Has anyone else tried to make a similar functional part?
- If so, how did you solve the problems using Asura, which seems to be a replacement for the Cura version?
- The inside must be hollow so that I can place target test objects inside of it.
