Formulas for Better Resin 3D Printing

When 3D printing in resin, it can be difficult to achieve optimal results due to the rigid, tough and flexible qualities that go along with the process. Dymax has produced a white paper providing formulas that make the process consistently perform better results. A great example is how printing with good resolution requires a low viscosity.

“Through the developments of model 3D printing formulas, there has been further research into manipulating the properties 3D printing materials provide. A new white paper by Dymax features a study that targets superior impact and temperature resistance properties in photopolymer-based 3D printing resins. The goal is to create resins that meet or exceed the capabilities of thermoplastic materials. Improvements in impact strength while maintaining a high Heat Deflection Temperature (HDT) can provide insight about how to replicate thermoplastic properties in 3D-printed materials. The data gathered in this white paper allowed for new developments in light-curing 3D printing processes. This information proves that it’s possible to improve both HDT and impact resistance simultaneously, rather than sacrificing one for the other.”
