Learn about Flexible and elastic 3D-printing resinsWhilst the 3D-printing market grows rapidly, the demand for better 3D-printing materials grows with it. This leads to the development of a wide variety of materials. All new types of resins are finding their way into the market for specific applications. Earlier we wrote an article about the Strongest and Toughest materials available. One of [...]
Liqcreate Wax Castable 3D-printing resin for Jewelry applicationsLiqcreate Wax Castable is a blue wax-based photopolymer with reliable processability and accuracy on LCD/MSLA, DLP and laser based 3D-printers. 3D-printed parts from this material captures intricate features and show crisp details. This wax-based material offers smooth surfaces with clean burnout for a reliable casting process. Create custom made elegant organic geometries with positive and [...]
Chemical resistant and chemical compatible 3D-print resin3D-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 resin 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 [...]
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 […]
