New to 3D printing and not sure where to start? This tutorial is perfect for beginners! We'll guide you through the process of printing your 3D files step-by-step, with a focus on making it easy to follow.
Throughout the tutorial, we'll be using Lychee, a user-friendly software tool for preparing and slicing 3D models for resin-based 3D printers. You'll learn how to set up your printer, resin and parameters, add support structures, slice your model, and save the file for printing. By following these instructions, you'll be on your way to creating your own 3D prints in no time!
Adding a New PrinterAfter launching Lychee on your computer, the first step is to choose your model of 3D printer from the settings menu
Click on 3D Printer on the top left corner > Add > Select Resin 3D Printer > Select Phrozen > Select your printer
Selecting Resin TypeClick on Add New Resin > Add New Resin > choose the resin profile like Brand, Name, and Color that you will be printing with
Entering your print parametersOnce you've selected your resin, you'll need to set the parameters for your print, such as layer height, exposure time, lifting speed etc > Click on OK
For detailed information on the recommended print settings for your resin and printer, refer to Phrozen’s Resin Profile
Importing FilesImport your STL file into Lychee
Click on Import > select your STL file > Open
Adding SupportTo ensure a successful print, you'll need to add support to your model
Click on your model > Prepare > Generate Automatic Supports
SlicingSlice your model by clicking on Export > Export slices to file > Save
Saving the File to USB driveAfter slicing your model, copy the sliced file to your USB drive
PrintingInsert the USB drive and print your sliced model to bring your 3D design to life.
