Chemical compatibility of 3D-printed resin parts

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 [...]

How to support parts printed in Liqcreate resin?

An important factor in the quality of 3D-printed parts is the support structures. These supports can vary for each 3D-printer and for each material. Support of 3D-printed parts In general rigid polymers like Deep Blue, Strong-X, Premium White/Black/Model are easy to print with a combination of light and medium supports as shown in Figure 1. [...]

Are Liqcreate resins compliant to the RoHS directive?

RoHS stands for Restriction of Hazardous Substances and restricts the use of specific hazardous materials found in electrical and electronic products. Sometimes there is confusion between RoHS and REACH. REACH stands for Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals. Both are regulations of the European Union. The main difference between RoHS and REACH is that […]

What do properties of a resin or 3D-printed part mean?

There are a lot of resins available on the market, all with different properties and price. In contrast to FDM, where polymer filament is used from a known polymer with certain properties, SLA, DLP and LCD 3D printers use resins where properties are obtained by the chemical composition of the resin. Because of the difference [...]

What is the difference between SLA, DLP and LCD 3D-printers?

3D-printing was discovered more than 30 years ago by the original founder of 3D-systems[1]. This first 3D-printer was named stereolithography apparatus and used a laser to cure a light reactive resin. During the years after the discovery, other companies like EnvisionTEC[2] came up with new methods of curing the light reactive resin, by projector, instead [...]
