Hi there,
Anyone can share the curing time neeed for this resin?

Do it need curing before making molds from rubber? Castaldo rubber.

Waiting some answers,
Thnak you,

I cure for a couple of hours in my UV box, bought from Micron. Probably overkill. I then spray the parts with a wax barrier (MacWax for me).
I don't know if Castaldo is platinum-based, or tin-based (addition-cure, or condensation-cure). The latter will be less prone to cure-inhibition.

cure it 5 min. in cure box , then boil them in water ,

start from room temp to boil , leave boiling for 10 min. and then leave in water till water is warm enough to put your hands in , no spray , just spur up and mold

Just started using solusproto and love it, but I'm getting a lot of shrinkage. I thought I might be over curing it, and adjusted cure to company suggestion. Any suggestions? The rings I'm making are all off by at minimum a half size. How much should I be adjusting my models when printing?
Thanks

If your shrinkage is uniform across one or more axes, you can scale the object before printing to compensate for the shrinkage. What specific percentage you need to calculate from the ring size you want and the ring size you get.

What I find in real life is that not all axes shrink equally. :P

I thought SolusProto has little to no shrinkage. 5-7% is quite a lot. What gives?

make a sz 7 band , grow it , then check the resin model to see the sz , then adjust accordingly
