[Matou] Always attracted by the beauty formed by natural crystals [and has long wished for a glowing crystal pendant]When he got a resin-based 3D printer, he was very disappointed to find that although the transparent resin print looks like a delicious candy when wet, it will become cloudy and turbid after being cleaned in an isopropyl bath and cured with ultraviolet light. Dim. There must be a way to polish the pieces back to clarity, or to keep them clear in the first place, [Matou] idea, And set out to try some test crystals (Video, embedded below).
As [Matou] It was found that the dullness was caused by surface defects. Resin prints also have layered lines, and although they may be very fine and invisible to the naked eye, they still scatter light. The choice seems obvious-either sand the proud part with lots of sandpaper, or fill the valley with something to smooth everything out. As you can see in the video after the break, [Matou] Tried all the methods, including a layer of resin coating the same as the printed matter. It is an interesting way to look at the different ways of smoothing resin prints, although you may not be surprised to find that the most invested work looks best.
We want to see [Matou] Tried the green LED in the pendant, but it didn’t happen.If you really want to know what it is like You can get one of these pendants for yourself through support [Matou] On Patreon.
We think crystals are also cool-especially crystal radios.This is one of the most hacked Those ones We have seen it, it’s free.
