The toughest 3D-printing resins available

3D-printing resins are known to be brittle materials. It can be experienced that objects break easily. This brittleness comes from the many cross-links and stiff back-bone of the resin formed during 3D-printing. During exposure, the polymerization process starts and is linking all monomers together, forming a highly cross-linked and stiff resin network. Tough materials are [...]

Chemical resistant and chemical compatible 3D-print resin

3D-Printed parts are used in a wide range of applications. In some of these applications the parts are exposed to petrol, cleaning agents or other chemicals. Our engineering team started to investigate the resistance of common chemicals on 3D-printed parts. Compatibility of 3D-printed and post-cured resin parts were tested with several chemicals. The weight of [...]

Post-curing of 3D-printed parts with Liqcreate resins

Post-processing is an essential part of resin 3D-printing to reach the final photopolymer properties. Printed parts need to be cleaned, dried and post-cured. The washing and drying steps are explained at the support article ‘how to post process SLA, DLP & LCD printed objects’. The next step that follows is post-curing.  Post-curing of resin 3D-printed parts [...]

What are the strongest 3D-printing resins available?

During the development of Liqcreate Strong-X resin, we studied all available high strength resins. This way we found out what was missing, so we could develop the strongest resin. In this article we want to share the knowledge we gained during this research. All data is obtained from the official manufacturers datasheet and the source [...]

How to post-process SLA / DLP / LCD printed objects?

After printing and removing the object from the build plate, it is necessary to clean the green part. It is advised to rinse at least 4 - 5 minutes in Liqcreate Resin Cleaner, IPA or (Bio) Ethanol, preferably ultrasonic or under agitation. After cleaning, gently remove the supports with a model cutter. The last step [...]
