DLP 3D printers use thermoplastic resins and ultraviolet curable resins in the process of converting photosensitive liquid into solid plastics layer-by-layer. The material characteristics on DLP 3D printers range in capabilities, including:
Transparent – Highly transparent materials capable of capturing fine levels of detail.
Rubber-like – A range of rubber-like elastomers with shore hardness from 50A-80A.
Rigid – Rigid resin that offers high levels of stiffness, and resistance to deformation.
Flexible – Flexible and durable polypropylene-like materials.
High Strength – Exceptionally durable materials meant for parts that will undergo high levels of strain or wear. Perfect for tools, jigs, and mechanical parts.
High Temp – This material is great for heat-resistant mounts, fixtures, and housings, due to its high heat deflection.
Medical Use – CE certified, biocompatible materials for medical devices. Biocompatible materials usable in medical devices. CE Certified, able to be sterilized at high temperatures.
Casting – Resin purpose-built for casting, good for jewelry and metal casting.
