Advice and answers from our team

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.

2. We have tested out all our resins and have shared the settings in our resin profile spreadsheet. You can also test out different values and adjust them according to your needs.
