Material-Details: Resin Datasheet

Resin is actually a through concept for UV-curing liquid plastics.
If you choose Resin provide us the decision of what kind of Material, we take exactly for your pressure.
3D prints in SLA have an extremely high surface quality and a very high dimensional accuracy.
It can be presented tiniest details in extremely high resolution.
Most Resin is used in the production of highly detailed projects or the dimensional accuracy for example. Functional and installation tests must be very high.

Advantages & disadvantages


  • Extrem High Resolution
  • Very smooth surface
  • High dimensional stability
  • Directly Platable
  • Various Colors
  • Free-distortion


  • Insulators made of same material (visible traces on the part)
  • Large components can not be printed massively
  • Altert rapidly when UV irradiation

Price calculation

  • 1,48 € / cm³ used material.
  • It's just the Material calculated that is actually consumed in the component. .

Typical usage

Sla Resin is always used when a high demand is placed on the surface finish and / or details of the component.
This can indeed be reached with Polyjet but SLA has the advantage that can be printed on all sides and the inner glossy hann.
The only downside is that the portions need to be supported and therefore visible traces formed on part in the post.
Dimensional accuracy is very high in resin parts, because of working with layer thickness of 0.05 mm..


Resin-parts are manufactured in the SLA process.
SLA means Steriolithographie and is the oldest and most mature 3D printing process.
Since working with UV sensitive liquid plastics and no thermals is used to SLA, not warp parts.

The procedure:

Your model is decomposed by a program into individual layers of 0.05 mm.
Now a plate lowered into a bath of resin.
On this record, a UV laser now starts to "draw the contours and shapes of the parts". In all places where the laser exposed the Resinbad, the material hardens.
Now the build platform lowers to a layer thickness down and a slide provides new material on its surface.
This process is repeated layer by layer to your component until it is ready.
During the construction process, your part rests on the insulators .
These are removed after the manuel merge operation and sanded.

The surface of your model is determined by the technology and the chosen material. Therefore, we offer several post-processing steps. This affects the cost but also the quality of your model.


Available colors:

Red, Blue, Grey, White;, Black


Soft-touch painting

Soft-touch Painted 3D printing in SLA

Soft-touch is a special type of painting. The surface feels very soft after painting and smoothed on.
SLA parts with soft-touch are by far the closest to injection-molded parts with regard to interface, look and feel.
The parts are sanded by hand, primed and painted leading to a perfect surface without visible construction stages.
You won't believe the product was printed here.

  • need a minimum dimension of 10 x 10 x 10 mm.
  • Price: 40% of the part price.
  • In painting 2 Working days must be set extra(included).



After post-curing under a UV lamp and additional Cleaning, we can Polish SLA parts.

What is to be observed on polished models:

  • Models can be polished until at least a size of 10 x 10 x 10 mm.
  • Traces of insulators disappear here.
  • The post will take about 0.05 mm material on all surfaces. Plan also something extra wall thickness.
  • Small details can disappear during this process.
  • The polishing service requires 2 extra Working days to the indicated delivery time.
  • Price: Polishing costs 30% of the part price as extra charge.

Painted models

Painted 3D printing

Of course you can also paint resin 3D models .
Here it is a grind, the parts not necessary, which makes the process more cost-effective and results in a high-gloss finish.

  • require a minimum dimension of von 10x10x10 mm
  • Price: 20% of the part price.
  • In painting 2 Working days must be set extra(included).




Coating 3D Druck


Resin-Parts can be wonderfully coated also.
In contrast to normal materials, these must not be covered with a conductive layer, as SLA parts are directly coated.
To do this, your model is sanded and then coated with your requested material. Here also a coating with as gold or silver is possible.

  • We can coat only parts of 10 x 10 x 10 mm to 600 x 600 x 600 mm. Larger parts on demand..
  • Handling fee 12 € / Order
  • Hand electroplating .
  • High Resolution from 1 µm
