3D printing

High detail and smooth surface, injection mold-like prototyping.

Resins are thermoset photopolymers that solidify when exposed to light, producing high detail parts with a smooth, injection mold-like surface finish.

SLA/DLP Resin Materials

SLA is most suitable for visual applications where an injection mold-like, smooth surface finish, and a high level of feature detail are required.

Benefits and Limitations

Fine features & high detail
Smooth, injection mold-like, surface finish

Support marks may be visible on surface
Brittle, not recommended for functional parts

Characteristics

Price $$$$$ Tolerance ± 0.5% (min: ± 0.1 mm)
Turnaround time < 2 days Wall thickness 0.5 mm
Max part size 150 x 75 x 50 cm Layer height 25 - 100 μm

Standard resin

Standard resin (SLA) is a high-detail resin that produces parts with a smooth, injection mold-like surface finish. It is brittle and used for non-functional parts.

Material family

Tough resin (ABS-like)

Tough resin (SLA) mimics the properties of ABS and produces parts with improved mechanical properties compared to standard resin. Can be used for functional parts.

Material family

Durable resin (PP-like)

Durable resin (SLA) mimics the properties of PP and is semi-flexible, making it ideal for snap fit assemblies and high-detail durable prototypes.

Properties
Material family

Clear resin

Clear resin (SLA) has a semi-transparent appearance, but can be post processed to a smooth and almost fully optically clear finish.

Material family

Rubber-like resin

Rubber-like resin (SLA/DLP) produces parts with a rubber-like feel and shore hardness < 70A that can be compressed and bent. Lacks the performance of true rubber.

Material family

Heat resistant resin

Heat resistant resin (SLA) has high strength and stiffness and excellent temperature resistance. Used for low-cost, low-run injection molds.

Material family

Ceramic filled Resin

Ceramic filled resin (SLA/DLP) produces parts with very high stiffness and higher detail than Tough or Durable resin. Good temperature resistance.

Material family

Castable resin

Castable resin (SLA) is a high-detail resin used to produces patterns for investment casting. They burn out cleanly with no ash or residue.

Material family

Dental resin

Dental resins (SLA) are high-detail, sterilizable and biocompatible resins capable of producing dental implants.

Material family

Material Jetting Resin Materials

Material Jetting produces parts of the highest dimensional accuracy with very smooth surface finish, used for both visual prototypes and tooling manufacturing.

Benefits and Limitations

Multi-material capabillities
No support marks visible on surface
Smooth, injection molding-like finish

Higher cost than SLA/DLP
Brittle, not recomemended for functional parts

Characteristics

Price $$$$$ Tolerance ± 0.1% (min: ± 0.05 mm)
Turnaround time < 5 days Wall thickness 1.0 mm
Max part size 100 x 80 x 50 cm Layer height 16 - 32 μm

Standard resin

Standard Resin (Material Jetting) produces extreme detail, rigid, injection mold-like parts with a smooth surface. Used for top-end visual, non-functional prototyping.

Material family

Digital ABS

Digital ABS (Material Jetting) mimics the properties of ABS and produces stiff, rigid parts for engineering applications. Greater detail than Tough Resin (SLA).

Material family

Durable resin (PP-like)

Durable resin (Material Jetting) mimics the properties of PP and is semi-flexible. Ideal for durable, high-detail prototypes. Greater detail than Durable Resin (SLA).

Material family

Transparent resin

Transparent resin (Material Jetting) can have a completely clear, glass-like appearance after post-processing. Ideal for injection molding-like prototypes.

Material family

Rubber-like resin

Rubber-like resin (Material Jetting) produces high-detail parts with a soft rubber-like appearance and shore hardness < 70A. Not suitable for functional prototypes.

Material family

Heat resistant resin

Heat resistant resin (Material Jetting) has high strength and heat deflection temperature and can be used to produce high detail, low-run injection molds.

Material family

Castable resin

Castable resins (Material Jetting) are high detail resins for investment casting pattern making. No residue after burn out. Greater detail than Castable Resin (SLA).

Material family

Dental resin

Dental resins (Material Jetting) are high detail, sterilizable and biocompatible resins suitable for dental implants. Greater detail than Castable Resin (SLA).
