– Make sure to set the power switch to the off position and remove the power cord before transporting the device.
– Only use the grounded power adapter and power cord supplied with the printer to prevent possible electrical shocking.
– Please place and use the printer in a well ventilated area. The process of printing will produce a small amount of non-toxic odor. Having a well ventilated area will ensure a more comfortable environment.

Resin Care

– Wear proper protective equipment, avoid raw material contact and vapor inhalation.
– Chemical-resistant gloves should be worn when you make contact with resin.
– Avoid exposing resin to high temperatures, localized heat sources (i.e., drum or band heaters), oxidizing conditions, freezing conditions, direct sunlight, ultraviolet radiation, inert gas blanketing.
– Never pour the waste resin back to the bottle or down the sink, as it may pollute the remaining resin or clog the drain.
– You may pour resin waste into plastic bag and expose it to sunlight or UV light source to cure the resin. The cured resin can then be discarded.
– Avoid dripping resin on anything other than the platform or the resin tank, or the printer may malfunction.
– The stability of printing quality is affected by temperature and humidity. Please ensure that the recommended operating conditions are adhered to (Operating temperature 18-28℃ (64.4-82.4℉)/humidity 40-80% RH; If a different operating temperature is printed on the label on the resin bottle, please adhere to recommended conditions on the label.)

Resin Tank Care

– Due to the nature of the print technology and material, the resin tank may develop cloudy regions overtime where the laser cures the resin frequently and may lead to print fails. Moving the print location around the platform can help prolong the life of the tank.

– Avoid printing over cloudy area in the tank. Laser power may be reduced by the cloud. This may decrease the adhesion between the model and the
– Change to a new tank when over 2/3 of the surface gets cloudy.
– Use an isolate resin tank when using resin of different colors. Mixing resin of different color may affect printing quality.
– Sift any residue or cured debris from the tank with the scraper, high-density filter or other tools. Resin can be reused after filtering.

Resina estándar (A1)

La impresora compatible: Nobel 1.0A

La resina estándar permite una gran variedad de aplicaciones con una rigidez moderada, lo que hace que sea adecuada para productos de diseño general y prototipos de ingeniería.

Sugerencias de diseño de modelos

A fin de obtener un resultado de impresión óptimo así como todos los detalles del diseño, siga las especificaciones de diseño que se indican aquí cuando diseñe los modelos.

Recomendaciones sobre el acabado

Consulte aquí la guía completa de postprocesamiento.

Resina Moldeable (C1)

La impresora compatible: Nobel 1.0A
Modelo de resina: C1

Las propiedades de la resina moldeable son similares a las de la cera. No hay residuos de ceniza después de calentarse y es adecuada para fundición a la cera perdida, procedimientos de ahorro; por ejemplo el tallado con cera usado en el proceso de producción convencional.

Sugerencias de diseño de modelos

Las propiedades de la resina moldeable son similares a las de la cera en el hecho de que ambas son estructuralmente blandas y frágiles y la copia impresa se puede romper fácilmente debido a la fuerza de tracción durante el proceso de impresión. Siga las sugerencias de diseño que se indican a continuación para obtener una impresión optimizada.

» Diámetro mínimo de cable vertical ≥0,8mm

» Para ver las especificaciones de otras características, consulte aquí las especificaciones generales de diseño.

» La recomendación se basa en el resultado de impresión con la resina moldeable para XYZprinting (C1) con una capa de 0,1 mm de altura. 
» Los objetos más grandes con un tamaño superior a 60x60x120 mm o un peso que supere los 10 g pueden requerir más soportes para adherirse a la plataforma.

Recomendaciones sobre la configuración de impresión

Como con el uso de la resina para uso general, cuando hay salientes en el modelo o cuando el área de contacto con la plataforma es pequeño, se necesitan estructuras de soporte adicionales para garantizar que el objeto se puede imprimir completamente.

El software de impresión XYZware_Nobel tiene una función de “soporte automático” que se puede utilizar para analizar la estructura del modelo y generar automáticamente estructuras de apuntalamiento. Algunas veces puede que necesite utilizar el modo “manual” para agregar más soportes para garantizar la adhesión del objeto.

Haga clic aquí para consultar las instrucciones de las funciones de soporte.

Si la impresión no se puede realizar, cambie la posición del objeto y ajuste la configuración del ángulo y de las estructuras de apuntalamiento.

Proceso de desgaste recomendado

Cuando realice la fundición de las copias impresas, puede trabajar basándose en la sugerencia de control de temperatura descrita en el siguiente diagrama para garantizar que la resina se consume por completo y que se obtiene una superficie suave y perfecta del objeto fundido.


Recomendaciones sobre el acabado


Después de quitar el objeto impreso de la plataforma, límpielo con alcohol etílico con una concentración superior al 95 %. Durante el proceso de limpieza, es recomendable utilizar una red para sostener el elemento impreso y balancear dicha red en el alcohol para limpiar los residuos de resina de la superficie del mencionado elemento.

Recoja el elemento impreso y sáquelo del alcohol después de limpiarlo, y espere a que el alcohol de la superficie se evapore.

» Debido a la fragilidad de esta resina, no utilice un cepillo para restregar el elemento impreso. Si no sigue esta recomendación, puede rayar la superficie del elemento impreso.
» No sumerja el elemento impreso en alcohol durante más de 10 minutos, ya que el alcohol erosionará la estructura del elemento y dañará este.
» Es normal que se produzca una pérdida de intensidad después de que el elemento impreso se sumerja en alcohol. Esta pérdida de intensidad no afectará al resultado de la fundición.

Deje que el alcohol de la superficie se seque al aire

Habrá residuos de alcohol en la superficie del elemento impreso después de lavarlo.
Mantenga el elemento impreso estático después de lavarlo y no realice el fraguado posterior hasta que haya confirmado que el alcohol se ha volatilizado por completo. Después de que el alcohol se haya secado al aire, compruebe con cuidado si queda algún residuo de resina. Asegúrese de quitar la resina que no haya fraguado para evitar que bloquee los detalles de diseño del modelo original.

» Si el fraguado se realiza cuando todavía quedan residuos de alcohol en la superficie del elemento impreso, dicha superficie aparecerá blanca y empañada, lo que posiblemente afecte al resultado de la fundición.

» El color del elemento impreso se degradará ligeramente después de que el elemento se sumerja en alcohol. Cuando el alcohol se haya secado al aire, el elemento recuperará su color naranja claro original. Por consiguiente, puede basarse en el color del elemento impreso para determinar si el alcohol se ha secado al aire.

Quitar el soporte

Utilice las herramientas para recortar el soporte en lugar de tirar directamente (si tira, la superficie del elemento se puede dañar fácilmente).

Fraguado posterior

El elemento impreso generado a partir de la resina moldeable se debe fraguar posteriormente mediante luz UV para garantizar la dureza de la fundición a la cera perdida.

Haga clic aquí para leer el perfil de curado para la cámara de curado UV de XYZprinting (modelo: 3UD10).

» En condiciones de longitud de onda UV de 375~405 nm y una intensidad de radiación de 14 mW/cm²,cuando el grosor de la estructura del objeto supera los 7 mm, es recomendable realizar el fraguado posterior del objeto durante 10 minutos.


Conservación de la resina sin fraguar

La resina sin fraguar dentro del depósito de resina no se debe exponer a la luz. La resina sin fraguar se puede almacenar en un contenedor opaco una vez filtrada. Vuelva a verter la resina en el depósito de resina antes de la siguiente impresión.

» Se recomienda utilizar recipientes de polipropileno opacos para guardar las resinas.
