How to work with Liqcreate Hazard Glow, glow in the dark resin?

Liqcreate Hazard Glow is the first ever glow in the dark resin for SLA and DLP technologies in a range of 385 – 405nm. This material is optimized in having the highest possible glow-effect while remaining processable in DLP, MSLA and SLA 3D-printers. Parts 3D-printed with Liqcreate Hazard Glow can be activated with almost every [...]

How to work with Liqcreate resins on the Formlabs Form 2 resin 3D-printer?

Formlabs was founded in September 2011 to develop the first affordable desktop SLA 3D printer. Its record breaking $2.95 million kickstarter campaign was the kick-off of the first affordable resin 3D-printer. Later in September 2015, Formlabs announced the Form 2 3D-printer. This printer was upgraded with a larger build volume, heated resin vat and wiper. [...]

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 [...]
