The first 32 body i printed was the water wash and the second was normal resin and it turned out better. On the first one the sides were a bit twisted and i thought it was down to me removing the supports before curing but i did the same on the second body and it didn't happen. I'm still very inexperienced so it might just be me doing something wrong still. Hot water still works to flatten or reshape parts though, I've curved some door panels for the 32 by sitting them on a cloth and pouring kettle water over them for a few seconds and then under the cold tap once shaped. It worked better than it does on styrene for me I'll have to try a little warm/hot water, see if that helps. I never remove the parts from the supports until after curing. And a few times I've left everything on the build plate to cure. With the same results. I haven't heard that about the water washable resin. That's all I've used. Might have to grab a jug of IPA and try the standard resin, see if that makes a difference. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
