Your resin material choice will depend on the nature of your project. But with the constant evolution of the additive manufacturing industry, new resins are developed, showing new interesting properties.
What the majority of resins have in common: a high level of detail with a great surface finish. If you need really accurate prints, resin 3D printing is the perfect solution for you. Injection mold-like prototypes or aesthetic parts can be made using resins. For non-functional prototypes, some types of resins are particularly adapted. If the main goal of your prototype is to show details and complex geometries, resin materials are perfectly adapted. Resin 3D printing is also perfect to manufacture decorative parts or finished end-use products thanks to high detail and really smooth surfaces. You can easily access injection mold-like surface finishes by using new resin technologies.
More resistant and rigid resins are also entering the market. Resin 3D printing also offers translucent options, for enclosures or storage devices. New resins on the market are offering the possibility to manufacture high-performance functional parts with interesting accuracy and advanced mechanical strength.
Last but not least, resin materials and resin 3D printers are more and more developed for mass production! From jewelry to engineering projects and medical applications, the future of resin 3D printing is bright and promising.
Here are some interesting resin 3D printers actually available on the market, showing the focus taken by 3D printer manufacturers: machines that print faster, with better precision, more and more adapted to production.
Formlabs Form 3 and 3L
Formlabs is one of the best-known SLA 3D printers, renowned in particular for its Form 2. Their new Formlabs 3 and Formlabs 3L are based on a brand new printing process called Low Force Stereolithography. These two machines are meant to be faster and more accurate than their predecessors!
This Origin 3D printer is becoming a new option for high-volume manufacturers with a tall building volume of 192 x 108 x 350 mm allowing to print series. Thanks to these kinds of 3D printers, resin materials are becoming a real production alternative for businesses.
Prusa entered the stereolithography market with their Prusa SL1. This 3D printer is an open-source machine, with an interesting size build volume of 120 x 68 x 150 mm and using an LCD screen to cure the resin.
This resin printer is one of the most affordable machines on the market. It is also a really accessible 3D printer in terms of operation and preparation.
