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 can i speed up resin 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 [...]

Explained & tested: Anti-Aliasing (AA) and Blur in resin 3D-printing

Several 3D-printing techniques like SLA, MSLA and DLP are used to cure photosensitive resin layer by layer and form a 3D-printed object. To get a 3D-printed part, a DLP printer uses a DMD chip to expose the right pixels in each layer. In a MSLA 3D-printer, this is done with an LCD screen. Both images [...]

Explained: 2K, 4K & 8K resolution, 3D-printers and resins

In the beginning of DLP 3D-printers, the jargon were quite easy. There were mainly HD projectors available and in some exotic models, the manufacturers chose for a 4K DLP projector. In today’s hardware and material landscape, the different techniques and marketing expressions are endless and sometimes confusing. In this article we explain the differences in [...]

Sticky resin prints and how to solve

When using new materials in resin 3D-printing, they sometimes need a bit different post-processing. For instance when changing from rigid to flexible materials, the finished products can sometimes feel sticky. In this article we explain why the parts are sticky and what you can do about it. if you have any questions, feel free to [...]

10 common resin 3D-printing fails and how to solve them

Resin 3D-printing is more complicated than many other 3D-printing techniques. This is due to the many different factors involved in the 3D-printing process. In this article we explain the most common resin 3D-printing defects and how to solve them. If you don’t like reading, Hiro Creations shared a video on his tips and tricks how [...]

Is DLP faster than SLA?

in most cases DLP is faster than SLA. A DLP printer will expose the complete build plate at once compared to the SLA printer in which the laser has to touch every single spot. According to SLA printer manufacturer Formlabs: “As a rule of thumb, this results in SLA 3D printers being comparable or faster [...]
