Materials for SLA*

Standard Resin

  • High precision (minimum layer height 0.025mm)

  • Smooth, matte surface finish

  • Lowest cost for SLA

  • Low mechanical strength

  • Not suitable for end-use parts, visual models only

  • 4 colors available: black, white, grey, and clear. If none of these are suitable to you, please reach out to us and we’ll source the materials you need.

Durable Resin

  • Moderate precision (minimum layer height 0.05mm)

  • Smooth and glossy surface finish, slightly transparent

  • Low cost

  • High strength and durability, low friction

  • Ideal for interlocking parts, snaps, and hinges.

  • 1 color available: white

Grey Pro Resin

  • Moderate precision (minimum layer height 0.05mm)

  • Smooth and matte surface finish, opaque

  • Moderately priced

  • Stronger and more abrasion resistant than standard resins.

  • Suitable for functional prototypes

  • 1 color available: grey

Tough Resin

  • Moderate precision (minimum layer height 0.05mm)

  • Smooth surface finish, slightly transparent

  • Moderately priced

  • High impact strength

  • Ideal for prototypes undergoing moderate stress and strain

  • 1 color available: blue-green

Flexible Resin

  • Low precision (minimum layer height 0.05mm but cannot print fine features)

  • Rubbery texture, flexible but not stretchy. Similar to tire rubber

  • Higher cost

  • Ideal for grips, overmolds, and wearable products

  • 1 color available: matte black

Elastic Resin

  • Low precision (minimum layer height 0.1mm)

  • Gummy texture, flexible and very stretchy. Similar to surgical rubber or rubber bands

  • Higher cost

  • Ideal for parts that undergo significant deformation and must return to their original shape

  • 1 color available: transparent white

High Temp Resin

  • High precision (minimum layer height 0.025mm)

  • Surface finish similar to frosted glass

  • Higher cost

  • Hard and glassy, very brittle

  • Can withstand temperatures up to 260℃ (500℉), can survive reflow and selective soldering applications

  • 1 color available: matte yellow, slightly transparent

Rigid Resin

  • High precision (minimum layer height 0.05mm but good for thin features)

  • Surface finish similar to ceramic

  • Higher cost

  • Hard and rigid, resists deformation

  • Ideal for parts with thin walls like cases

  • 1 color available: matte yellow, slightly transparent
