Resin materials are best for smooth surfaces with high-detailed textures as well as a range of finishing and post-production options. These include casting resins, epoxy resins, resin materials, etc.

Resin printing is mostly used for rapid prototyping but has also found its way into the jewellery industry. The "jewellery" prints are created by making a mould of wax or other materials and then printing high-resolution photopolymers which are ideal to capture all the details of any 3D model.

This printing method allows for the rapid fabrication of highly accurate prototypes that can be used for evaluating fit, form and function prior to investing in expensive tooling.

innovative way of creating physical objects

Resin 3D printing service is a new and innovative way of creating physical objects. These days, thermoplastic resins are widely used in the industry for rapid prototyping. Resin materials are best for smooth surfaces with high-detailed textures as well as a range of finishing and post-production options. Epoxy resin casting is also common among jewellery makers due to its ability to capture all details on any 3D model.

Another additive manufacturing technique is stereolithography. This additive manufacturing technique uses liquid resin and laser to build up layer-by-layer the desired 3D model. Many 3D printers use this additive technology so it's highly sought after today.

About Resin materials

The main use of resin is to be an adhesive - to move stress between the fibres to connect them together and prevent external forces. First natural resin has been found in plants bugs or wood; e.g. amber or shellac are examples and form part of natural resin. Natural resins are used in some products, but their flammability and fusibility may appear in liquid and be soluble in some applications, making them unsuitable.    

Synthetic resins, alternatively called synthetic rubbers and plastics, are polymer materials derived from petroleum. A synthetic resin is a manmade material made of synthetic chemicals that mimic the properties of natural resins. They're synthetic in origin and synthetic in chemical formation.

SLA prints in a single material are available in a range of colours with varying levels of transparency, hardness and resistance to light.

About epoxy resins

Resin is a synthetic resin used mainly in adhesives and protective coatings usually to construct a diverse range of appliances including electrical equipment and cars. Resins are thermoplastics; they can harden when cooled, making them useful as glues or to produce durable plastics and enamels. They may also be mixed with certain additives (e.g., fibres or talc) to form a putty epoxy resin that is used to seal hulls of boats, repair glass/windshields of cars, and fix household items. These are thermoplastic materials with a higher viscosity than most thermoplastics yet lower than most other resins, so it is especially suitable for producing objects which have moving parts.

Casting resins produce extremely accurate prints that can be used for testing designs, fit and form with increased durability. Epoxy resins offer similar benefits - smooth surfaces, detailed textures, and post-production finishing options. Their thermoplastic (less viscous) nature makes them ideal for larger prints that require large layers of support or thin walls between moving components.

Additionally, they are suitable for casting jewellery pieces with extreme detail. The thermoplastic nature of the resin means it can be easily shaped to produce objects from complex geometries or with moving components. These models can be used in lieu of production-grade thermoplastic tools to facilitate prototyping and testing, allowing for fast iteration cycles.

Thermoplastic Resins on demand

Resin printers can produce stunning detail with better resolution results than FDM counterparts. At layer heights as low as 20 m these printers are the most economical choices for organic shapes and miniatures. The only major drawback of these printers is the small printing. 3d printing services will optimize and automate the cutting and printing process and post-process your prints to ensure nothing happens and leave you in a tidy and accurate part for a small part within days. This service is designed to be easy and effective without costing your arms and limbs. The cost (compared to the quoted price for printing a Craftcloud ), maximum print size, detail in print level distribution, range in print.

Other benefits of resin

Resin is specially formulated and is designed to be indestructible regardless of abuse. They are blended with UV-12 inhibitors to give a life of vivid colours. It can bend and absorb impact but it never breaks off. In addition, they were blended. UV-120 inhibitors to. Keep the whole thing bright colours. Even when abused with various contents or when it gets rid of.

Resin construction material

The resin used as a building material and for building walls as adhesive material and coating for buildings is needed where a strong bonds. Resins are also popular for interior decoration of self-levelling floors and architectural surfaces enabling the use of recycled material. Resin can be used to create self-living floors and architects.

How is a resin produced?

Production of artificial resins begins with a process such as cracking. Different type of hydrocarbons is heated to separate molecular particles together. It then builds a polymer that can be produced into a specific resin.  

Resin has been used since ancient times to create glues, paints and varnishes.

The resin is a set of natural or synthetic substances that are solid at room temperature and get soft when heated. GLUING PROPERTIES

1- Strong adhesion

2- It's very resistant to heat

3- It has a high resistance

4- It's waterproof

5- It has good insulation

6- Does not lose its adhesion    RESIN PRODUCTION PROCESS

The process of producing resin starts with the production of gases that contain hydrocarbon.

Resin costs slightly more per cubic centimetre than standard filament when comparing colours and materials, but when you need something extra durable or with an unbelievably smooth finish, there's no better choice than resin. It's on Materialise since 1990 that it's now a highly used technology today.

What is a resin used for?

Resins have numerous applications from jeweling to producing sporting vehicles. Different resins can serve in many applications for such material as the core of an inorganic substance such as carbon fibre or fibreglass.          

What is resin made of?

Most resins are composed of three basic components. They combine to form a matrix that holds the components together.  

In addition, some hardeners have been found to have some polymers that may be incompatible with each other and will tend to phase separate over time or when exposed to elevated temperatures.  

It's difficult to describe the various kinds of resins in words because there are so many different kinds, but all will fall into one of the following categories:  

1- UV Cured

2- Heat Cured

3- Solvent Cured

4- Radiation Cur

Resin material properties

Resins are possible to improve to certain levels depending on the structure of the resin. As well as other well-known resins we have included some that demonstrate how difficult it can be once hardened.        

Flexible resins are ideal when it comes to products like an item. The flexibility will make the product more resistant because there's less risk of breaking when in use.

- Strength

Resin has two main strength properties that define its overall performance in a certain application. Its compressive strength and its shear strength      

- Flex resistance

Resins have a very different range of flex, which means that it's possible to determine the amount of bending required from a material without damaging it. It is referred to as modulus. If the resin has a very high modulus, then you should be able to bend or twist it very easily and quickly break or tear  

- Waterproof properties

A good resin will not absorb water and other liquids because they contain hydrophobic molecules. The waterproof property helps protect against weathering and sun damage. Resin surfaces are often treated to make them resistant to dirt stains such as fingerprint oils and other organic residues such as grease.

3D resins offer a great deal of freedom to designers and engineers looking to create complex geometries. They can be used for casting and prototyping, jewellery casting processes as well as dental casting processes. Natural resin has been found in plants bugs or wood; e.g. amber or shellac are examples and form part of natural resin. These materials have also been used for 3D printing - they're often used for printed products such as clothing and shoes that come out with smooth surfaces and high-detailed textures (materials). Resin printers can produce stunning detail with better resolution results than FDM counterparts at layer heights as low as 20 m these printers are the most economical choices for organic shapes and miniatures which is the only major drawback of these printers and that is small printing.
