The resin exposure finder, also known as the resin calibration tester, is a print file that allows you to quickly find the best exposure settings for your resin. In this article, we will share three resin calibration finders with you:
1. Resin XP2 Validation Matrix by Photonsters:
The 1.4 mm thick XP2 Validation Matrix prints super-fast and takes roughly 10 minutes (using a Mono-LCD screen) to produce results. The 3D print will indicate if the resin is a little overexposed, but it will also help you get in range quickly. When using a slicer software to set up the XP2 validation test print, please set the layer count at 4 and transition layer count to 0.
2. Photocentric XY full test:
The 66x119mm XY full test print nearly covers your entire LCD screen. It works both as a resin exposure finder and an LCD/LED test.
3. Ameralabs Town Print:
The Ameralabs Town print is one of the most accurate resin exposure finders out there. However, as this print may take a while, we recommend using the XP2 validation test to get in range and then use the Ameralabs Town print to dial the resin in correctly.
