What is the Pixel Dimming?

Pixel Dimming ensure the highest print quality along with an easy setup experience. This feature would have following effects by dimming the pixels:

  • Prevents over-cure
  • Preserves details
  • Makes it possible to use one profile/cure time for different pieces with different thicknesses
  • Increases the PDMS life time

What is/are the reason(s) to use it?

Pixel Dimming somehow is a necessity on large, solid parts. The larger the area being cured for any particular layer, the more of a runaway cure you will experience. That is why, the layer over cures despite all attempts to prevent it through adjusting cure times. But by enabling Pixel Dimming, you can fix it quite easily.
How to use it?

  1. Negative through Resin Profiles > Edit Profile
  2. On the first row, choose Advanced by selecting Setup Mode
  3. By looking at the Pixel Dimming section, you can select your preferred Dimming Type.
