Hi Community,   My name’s Ben, a mechanical engineer here at 3D Hubs.   I’m creating this thread to be an open field for any questions relating to SLA 3D printing, whether it’s material recommendations or design tips. I’d love to hear your expertise and your questions!   So fire your questions away and lets get knowledge sharing! Thanks, Ben

Thanks @twiesner. We already have something very similar to this on our website (https://www.3dhubs.com/materials - if you click on a material and then click learn more). I think what we are aiming to do with the knowledge base is consolidate this information into one easy location with more of a technical feel (for engineers etc). I can certainly see the benefit of the Shapeways page for new 3D printing customers though. Thanks for your feedback! Cheers, Ben

Hi @twiesner, awesome response to the question! It always great to get feedback on ideas here on Talk. We are currently working on an Infill article for the knowledge base but if you have any suggestions of things you would like to have included (other than what you have talked about above) please let me know. Cheers, Ben

Good point Enza3D and thanks for your input. Assuming that the majority of users who land on the knowledge base will have some form of technical background in materials (which is what we are aiming for) a 5 star system that links to more detailed information also does no neglect those who are completely new. I really like that idea. Cheers, Ben

Hi Marius, thanks for your detailed reply. This is exactly the type of thing we are aiming for with the knowledge base, taking the stress away from the Hubs by giving you the option to redirect questions straight there. I also like your idea of colour coding! Cheers, Ben

Afternoon all,   Ben from 3D Hubs here. I am currently working on Knowledge Base content and have been floating the idea of an article that includes a materials specifications table as a quick reference for those new to designing for 3D printing. I have a link to the table here:   https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1MUmof71k1bBzHhmevocjqgjVcag0GQyx...
