    Smile mixing powders into SLA resin

    Hello all; this is my first post here

    I want to mix (load) a few different powders into existing SLA resins to make a slurry that the UV laser then photocures. Is there any reason that this would not work? ideally id like to go to very heavily loaded resin films...has anyone done this?

    I'm not looking to add the powder for cosmetic reasons, but for structural.

    Thanks!

    It can be done, and has been. But any powders tend to settle out, so if you don't have a way of keeping them in suspension, they will separate from the resin and form an opaque deposit on the bottom of your tank.

    Then it needs an agitator, a small propeller maybe, with the motor mounted outside the tank.
