Which 3D printed resin is the right one for you?

3D Printer

If you are thinking about 3D printing Phoenix in resin then it is good to know that there are multiple resins that you can use. To be more exact, you will have to choose between five possible resins. In this article, they will all be introduced and explained to help you with 3D printing Nashville

Standard resin

A relatively new option is the standard resin, which is quite cheap. However, this material does offer great quality. Because of this it is seen as the perfect low-budget resin. It can be bought with and without support. You can remove the support manually with sanding paper and tools. Standard resin has a lot of detail and is translucent. It is also easy to paint and edit after production.

Gray resin

Gray resin was previously called prime gray. It is a smooth item, in fact much smoother than essentially all other 3D printing materials. Just like the standard resin, the grey one is easy to paint as well. It can have different finishes, but the standard example is Natural Gray, also known as Air Force Gray. In total you can choose from nine finishing colors. 

Mammoth resin

Mammoth resin is another material that can be used to 3D print. This one is mostly suitable for huge objects, the biggest possible size is 2100x700x800mm. These big products will still have the high smoothness and quality, just like the other resins. If you need to print a huge piece, the mammoth resin is definitely the right choice. 

Transparent resin

If you want to 3D print a transparent item, you of course need to use the transparent resin. The name already reveals that this material should be your choice if you need to print in a transparent material. This resin is water-resistant by nature, which can be useful for sure. It is perfect for smaller pieces that need a transparent surface, which will be high-quality and smooth as well.

High-detailed resin

The last resin is the high-detailed resin. It does not use stereolithography, instead this one uses a technique called PolyJet. This 3D printing method jets ultra-thin layers of resin into a building platform to create an object. Each layer will immediately be hardened by UV light. The process is continued layer by layer, until the product is fully completed. Supports will be needed during PolyJet.
