I've not had much luck with water tight 3d prints. Though I haven't tried it on my resin printer yet. Have you thought about using a peltier effect device in stead of water? Maybe a smaller pump? I enjoyed your video. Thanks!

Hey Dave, thanks for the insights and the kind words. I too have noticed pin-holes in the walls where water tends to seep through. I wonder if annealing and/or acetone washing will melt the plastic just enough to seal things up better. If not, I may find a paint that's compatible and just put a coating on it. Solid in-fill may also do a better job.

I don't have a resin printer (yet), but maybe in the next year I'll get my hands on the E3d tool-changer machine.

I did consider a peltier, but the biggest one I have is quite small and I doubt would make any significant improvement beyond that of a heat-sink. The pump I was using was almost the smallest I have. There's an aquarium pump that's already occupied for another unfinished project, which is probably a better fitting.

Thanks again, and definitely subscribe to my YouTube channel if you want to follow any of my progress!
