PowerResins with Asiga 3D Printers

You can use any DLP PowerResins with your Asiga 3D Printers. In this post, we provide the profile settings you can use when you want to print PowerCast Wax and PowerCast Burn resins with Asiga 3d printers, and more specifically the Asiga Max Series 3d printers.

Settings for PowerCast Burn resin at 50 micron

In order to print with PowerCast Burn resin, you can start with the profile settings of PlasGray v2 ini files.

Steps in order to print with Asiga Max with PowerCast Burn are as follows:

  • Prepare the platform selecting PlasGray v2 profile at 0.050mm Z layer. Do not change anything on the ini file.
  • After click on Advanced Parameters. You will see the current parameters and light intensity of your machine.
  • You will need to adjust the Exposure Time depending on your Light Intensity. So once you open the Advanced Parameters, you will see the current Light Intensity of your machine. The higher the Light Intensity is, the less Exposure Time you will need.
  • Below we provide you the Exposure Time that you can use depending on the Light Intensity you see for PowerCast Burn:
 Current Light Intensity Current Exposure Time
Between 7 - 7.5 mW/cm2 2.2 s
Between 6.5 - 7 mW/cm2
2.5 s
Between 6 - 6.5 mW/cm2
2.7 s
Between 5 - 6 mW/cm2
3 s
Between 4 - 5 mW/cm2
4 s

 

As an example, let’s take a machine that has a Current Light Intensity of 6.38 mW/cm2. As per the table above, you will need to insert an Exposure Time of 2.7 seconds.

You may see on the picture below that we changed manually the Exposure Time to 2.7 seconds (yellow area).

Settings for PowerCast Wax resin at 50 micron

In order to print with PowerCast Burn resin, you can start with the profile settings of PlasGray v2 ini files.

PowerCast Wax resin cures at twice faster speed than PowerCast Burn resin. In the same way as you have seen above, you can use the following Exposure Times for PowerCast Wax resins. You may then adjust the Exposure Times depending on your models.
 Current Light Intensity Current Exposure Time
Between 7 - 7.5 mW/cm2 1 s
Between 6.5 - 7 mW/cm2
1.2 s
Between 6 - 6.5 mW/cm2
1.3 s
Between 5 - 6 mW/cm2
1.5 s
Between 4 - 5 mW/cm2
2.2 s
