I'm thinking of trying this. I've heard both it makes a big difference, and it doesn't make much difference at all.

What's your opinion as to mixture? I think most seem to think 20%.

I would suggest 100% non-brittle resin, then decrease it by 10% increments adding the less expensivebrittle resin to the mix. Perform a simple drop test using the same figure print in the differentratios of resins. You will discover what your personal happy mix is.

I don't own a 3d printer, but if I did, this is what I would do. Cheers!

Given the price of Tenacious flexible resin, it might be more economical to try that the other way round. 🙂

I do the above with Tenacious. What I do is add it every time I open a bottle of their simple resin. I fill the bottle up to just under full I can still shake it.

but do you find it really makes a difference in the final product?

I use tenacious. About a 25% mixture. The biggest thing I have found to increase flexibility is the Cure time. Long cure time fragile miniature.

Hmm I wasn't aware of that?

I print alot of 2mm to 6mm stuff with my Anycubic Resin Printer, and have had great luck – especially if I mix 20% Tenatious with 80% Normal 'Fast' Resin. It makes my final lances and bits a bit more flexible and don't snap off as easily.

Yeah, curing can affect the figs structure. I use a digital scale when using my tenacious 20% with regular gray resin 80%. I eyeballed it but it was never exact. Now it is.
