Key benefits of Flexible-X
From the beginning of SLA and DLP 3D-printing, rigid resins were the main available materials. Rigid resins are easy to print and do not need a great amount of skill and knowledge about the printing process. With new developments in resin technology, flexible, tough and high elongation resins are widespread available. With the release of Premium Flex, and Flexible-X, Liqcreate is offering flexible resins for prototyping and industrial use. These flexible materials require a bit extra attention on some areas to get the best results. Mainly on print preparation and post-processing. The following topics are covered in this article.
