Hi,

does anyone have a experience with using CW1 + formlabs resin?

No, but FormLabs says the FormCure uses 405nm UV so I would expect that the CW1 should be up to the task.

Is there a possibility to set curing time longer then 10 min?

According to the firmware, 60 minutes is the max drying time: https://github.com/prusa3d/Prusa-CW-Firmware/blob/master/src/defines.h#L47

Drying and washing are limited to 10 minutes. I have a PR in to increase the max drying time, but Prusa has been studiously ignoring it since November...

@gnat

Thank you Gnat. That is really interesting.

But the mashine allows me just 10 minutes. What can I do?

@am

Are you using the latest firmware? I just checked mine and it let me set it to 60 minutes for the cure time:

I am running a custom firmware, but the only change is to the max drying time.
