This is a common question. You're probably here for a reason. If your printer uses SLA (stereolithography) technology, whether laser or DLP type, the answer is probably yes. Common printers of this type are Formlabs' Form, SprintRay's MoonRay, Autodesk's Ember, Kudo 3D's Titan, and B9 Creations' B9 Creator. Post-curing is recommended for most resins and required for some.

Well, to put it simply, post-curing finishes the curing process that the 3D printer started. Generally speaking, when parts are removed from the 3D printer they are not fully cured. They can be tacky to the touch and not as strong as they could be. The post-curing process bombards the part with UV light at the wavelength that the photosensitive resin reacts to. This environment of UV bombardment is a luxury the 3D printer does not have, simply by design.
We like to think everybody, but it is probably more realistic to say those who need to get the absolute best from their 3D printer benefit the most. CUREbox was designed specifically for engineers, but is also very well suited for the jewelry and dental industries. Engineers like the fact that post-curing provides significantly higher tensile strength and flexural modulus. Jewelers like the consistency it brings to the sensitive burn-out phase of the casting process. Dentists use it because post-curing is simply a requirement of many dental resins.
