Where can I find the technical data sheets (TDS)?

The technical data sheet of each Liqcreate resin can be found in this section. All mechanical data is collected according to the measurements explained in this article. Mechanical data of the resin is acquired by 3D printing a sample of the resin and post-processing and post curing it according to the instructions per resin. Mechanical [...]

How to process Elastomer 3D-printing resin?

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 [...]

Optimizing shrinkage in resin 3D-printing explained

During resin 3D-printing, the liquid photopolymers polymerize and turn into a solid. If the shrinkage is big, it will ruin the dimensional accuracy of your end-part. So you want to limit the amount of shrinkage as much as possible. This could be done by first try to eliminate the most shrinkage by smart material choice. [...]

2 reasons to reduce % UV power of a resin 3D-printer explained

it is possible to reduce the power of the LED’s in almost all professional 3D-printers and also in some new entry-level MSLA / LCD 3D-printers. We sometimes get questions why we would not always advise to print at 100% UV LED power. In this article we explain the reasons and how to use this setting [...]

8 tricks for faster resin 3D-printing

3D-printing can be a lengthy process as most 3D-printing techniques focus on part quality rather than print speed. For resin 3D-printing, this is not much different. There are some new production grade techniques like 3DSystems Figure 4, Carbon3D DLS and EnvisionTEC / ETEC Envision One that use an oxygen permeable membrane to reduce peel forces [...]
