Resin 3D Printing

Resin Additive Manufacturing

Resin 3D printers are popular for producing high-accuracy, isotropic, and watertight prototypes and parts in a range of advanced materials with fine features and smooth surface finishes. Resin 3D printers all utilise some form of light source, such as a laser or projector, to harden liquid resin into plastic. The main divergence with other forms of plastic 3D Printing is in the arrangement of the key machine parts, such as the build platform, the light source, and the resin tank.

 

Resin parts tend to have greater accuracy, the best resolution, sharper details and the smoothest surface finishes of all 3D printing technologies. The main benefit however, lies in the great versatility of materials. manufacturers have created. Resin formulations with a wide range of optical, mechanical, and thermal properties match those of standard, engineering, and industrial thermoplastics and allow for a wide range of applications.

 

At Complete 3D we offer three types of resin 3D Printing: SLA, LCD/DLP, and MJP.

Our 3D Systems Resin 3D Printers

LCD and DLP additive manufacturing is very similar in a variety of ways. LCD 3D Printers use a LCD display module to project a certain light pattern which is then used to cure resin in the resin vat. LED light is used as the light source while the LCD screen controls the light pattern. Light is emitted from the LED lamp. It then passes through an LCD screen and is absorbed by the resin. An image of each layer is generated on the LCD screen while an entire layer is hardened at once. DLP 3D printers are very similar but are built around a resin tank with transparent bottom and a build platform that descends into a resin tank to create parts upside down, layer by layer. The difference is the light source. DLP 3D printers use a digital projector screen to flash an image of a layer across the entire platform, curing all points simultaneously.

Our 3D Systems SLA 3D Printers

SLA is all about precision and accuracy, so it is often used when form, fit, and assembly are critical. The tolerances on SLA parts are typically less than 0.05 mm, and SLA offers the smoothest surface finish of any additive manufacturing process. With the quality SLA can achieve, it is particularly useful for creating highly precise casting patterns (e.g. for injection moulding, casting, and vacuum casting) as well as functional prototypes, presentation models, and form and fit testing. SLA technology is extremely versatile and can be used in any number of areas where precision is paramount.
