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 [...]

Explained & tested: Coloring of 3D-printing resin

Currently over 17 Liqcreate resins are commercially available. These high-end photopolymer resins are used in a wide range of industries including prototyping, industrial, entertainment, consumer goods, healthcare, dental, aerospace and automotive. Even though a lot of resins are available, we sometimes get questions about resins with slightly different colors. For bigger volumes, we offer custom development, OEM, Private label and [...]

Plant-based, non-toxic and eco resins for 3D-printing

Since the invention of resin 3D-printing back in 1986, 3D-printing resin materials were mainly based on epoxy and acrylate chemistry from non-biobased sources. Recently the industry is focused on sustainable material feedstock and development of alternative eco- and bio-based 3D-printing resins. On this topic, 3D ADEPT Mag interviewed Liqcreate’s Sales & Marketing Executive, Ruben Bosch. [...]

Mixing 3D-printing resins: properties and 3D-printing behavior

Currently over 17 Liqcreate resins are commercially available. These high-end photopolymer resins are used in a wide range of industries including prototyping, industrial, entertainment, consumer goods, healthcare, dental, aerospace and automotive. Even though a lot of resins are available, we sometimes get questions about resins with slightly different properties, printing behavior or colors. For bigger [...]

Thermal aging of engineering resins for 3D-printing

With the adoption of Liqcreate resins in the consumer goods, automotive and aerospace sector, more data on UV-aging, chemical compatibility and thermal aging is requested. Previously UV-aging and chemical compatibility was tested. The results of UV-aging of Liqcreate 3D-printing resins can be found here. Chemical resistance and chemical compatibility of Liqcreate 3D-printing resins is published [...]

The Longer Orange 4K resin LCD 3D-printer.

The Longer Orange 4K LCD/MSLA 3D-printer is an open printer with a 405 nm light source, compatible with 3rd party resins. The settings for Liqcreate resins are not yet available. Looking at the 3D-printer specifications, most resins could also work on this printer. A good starting step in settings are the settings published for the [...]

UV aging of 3D-printing resin tested by Eindhoven University

Researchers and students at the University of Applied Science investigated the UV aging and UV stability of 3D-printed Liqcreate resins. The aim of this research was determining the effect of UV light on Liqcreate resins in the long-term. The analysed resins in this research were the Tough-X, Flexible-X and Strong-X resins. The resins were aged [...]

How to get a clear surface finish on 3D-printed parts?

Clear and transparent 3D prints are ideal for creating clear prototype parts, showing internal cavities and details. Applications like LED housings, prototyping lens parts and microfluidic devices are a few examples of application 3D-printed with clear resin. Resin 3D-printing is one of the only 3D-printing technologies that can create high resolution transparent plastic parts. One of [...]

3D-printed Strong-X resin part in freezing conditions

A 3d-printed plastic part can be exposed to different environments in its life-cycle. For some applications, the part is exposed to cold or even freezing conditions. For engineers it is important to know how the 3d-printed material behaves in these conditions when selecting the right material for the application. Recently a company active in cooling [...]

Linear shrinkage of 3D-printing resins

In the field of resin 3D-printing there are two mainstream resin technologies. One based on acrylates and the other one based on epoxides. In large scale SLA 3D-printers like from UnionTech, 3DSystems, Raplas, RPS,  EnvisionTEC and others, epoxy resins are the standard. These materials cure by a mechanism of ring-opening-polymerization which limits the shrinkage which [...]
