    Recommended post-processing components for larger resin printing?

    Hi everyone! I'm looking at purchasing a QIDI Tech S-Box resin printer (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08MT3XBS6...VKKJ4EE2&psc=1). I'm brand new to the game, and I'm wanting to use the printer to build prototypes for various things, mainly PCB enclosures. Several of the PCB enclosures are larger in dimension than smaller resin printers can handle (ie: one of my enclosures will be 133 mm long x 77mm wide x around 20mm tall), so I also need to consider that for my isopropyl bath capacity and my curing station capacity.

    I was looking at this cleaning station:
    https://www.amazon.com/Sovol-3D-Cleaning-Protective-Touchscreen/dp/B08P3LDK71/ref=sr_1_14?crid=2CSVYR314QPA5&dchild=1&keywords=r esin+curing+station&qid=1611149928&sprefix=resin+c uring+%2Caps%2C140&sr=8-14

    And I was looking at this curing station:
    https://www.amazon.com/Curing-Printer-Turntable%E3%80%81Time-Control-Enclosure/dp/B08H7Y1HQY/ref=sr_1_12?crid=2CSVYR314QPA5&dchild=1&keywords=r esin+curing+station&qid=1611149928&sprefix=resin+c uring+%2Caps%2C140&sr=8-12

    Looks like both should handle the size stuff I plan on making, but was hoping some of you here wouldn't mind chiming in with any other thoughts/considerations about this whole plan?

    Also, one thing I'm unsure about. My PCB enclosures will all be split-cases. I would absolutely clean them while separated, but I imagine I'll also need to cure one-half of each case at a time? Will I need to cure each case-half on each side (ie: cure it with the open side facing up, then later flip it over and cure the opposite side)? Sorry with my ignorance here... I imagine the answer is "yes", as in everything needs to be directly exposed to the light for it to cure, but just figured I would double-check. Thanks so much, I really appreciate anyone willing to lend a quick hand here


    EDIT: Also meant to ask, what's a highly recommended black resin that's available in 1000mL or larger? I saw a recommended brand a couple weeks ago but cannot seem to find it today. Thanks again!

    the washer and curing station look pretty good.

    And yes you will need to expose all surfaces to uv light.
    So a spin in the curer one way up and then another spin the other way up :-)

    No clue on resins - sorry.
