Resin Final Print Scale with differant resins

by caj

ok so now alcohol is worth it weight in gold, and I got fed up with trying to clean my pickle container because it leaves white residue in the container trying to filter the alcohol through filters to reuse makes just a mess.

I have switched to water wash I put under the sink wash then take a spray bottle with alcohol and rinse again this also works with alcohol wash as well.

But hear is my problem water wash resin I have to calibrate my design xy by .1 and z .3 this is quite a lot not, I had switched from FDM to SLA because of the problem of having to adjust design to printer,SLA alcohol is exact to design.

I am going to post this project but am a dead stand still do I post actual measurements or post using adjusted for water wash, with a disclaimer that water wash has to be used.

My deli-ma is posting with adjusted parts down the road might just bite me in the ass when I find water wash that prints with the same calibration of alcohol and or people will be giving bad comments that I did not make the parts right because they are using alcohol wash

IPA - IsoPropylAlcohol, where to get it.

by Gadgetman

It is recommended to wash printed parts in IPA, but this may not be easily available everywhere, or at least not under that name
Feel free to post what name it's sold under and where you found the stuff in your country.

Kemetyl 'Blårens' (Blue Cleaner) sold in large HW stores such as Coop Bygg and Jernia.
