1 hour for really good cure. 2 hours for an even better cure.

Wow. 1 hour to 2. Your box is very close to the same output of the B9. I have not done heavy prints yet but I cure for 10 to 20 min and have had good results. I've cut rings in half and it's rock hard all the way through. Maybe I go longer to see. Just wondering if you tested it with shorter cure times? How do you tell it fully cured? I like the longer preset times.

Shorter cure time looks cured. Longer cure time looks better cured.

Has the new resin been tested with the curing unit from Junction3d?
If yes what are the casting results?
I've been looking forward for some time now for the new resin to come out (hoping that it will have the properties of Proto and cast like wax) and was planning to get either a vaccuum oven or the B9 curing unit.

Hey guys, I Just bought a solus and it should be here soon! I'm looking & wondering what led's I should get to cure my models? Seems amazon is cheaper then ebay on these led's for now

QUANS 20W UV for $38.95 https://www.amazon.com/QUANS-Blacklight ... 2Bled&th=1

QUANS 50W UV for $99.99 https://www.amazon.com/QUANS-Blacklight ... 2Bled&th=1

Amazon is also recommending this turntable to help cure my resins https://www.amazon.com/HDE-Rotating-Min ... 428YV0ZR7J

I looked all over for the Quans 30W UV light but seems out of stock for now.

Is anybody using a turntables under their light? beneficial?

Also are there any other leds that people are using? I'm not to interested in the nail type led's unless they stay on for more then few min's and work good!

Thanks
