Resin Curing Station

Now that I have my Elegoo Mars resin 3D printer.  Need a way to cure the resin.  This has to be done because it is toxic until it’s dry.  There are lots of different ones to buy or you could make your own.  Looked at a few tutorials and come up with this easy one linked > here.  It is a box lined with tinfoil.  Then you cut hole in the top or the UV light.  I just need a light.  Looked for a nail curing station with a lot of people are using locally.  But had no luck.  So ordered one online.  While I waited for that started on the box. Used the tutorial linked above with a few changes.  First I opened the box flat.  Then ran the foil a long it and taped it in place.  Next taped the box back together.  After that for the bottom took a bigger piece of cardboard and covered that in foil.  How it works is.  You put the bottom piece down.  Place you printed item in the middle.  Cover that with the box.  Then place the UV light on top with a hole cut to let light in.  As I am typing this have tried it.  Is easy and cheep to make.
