An important fact to keep in mind is the chemical stability of SLS printed parts compared to SLA printed parts. SLA resin part properties change over time with UV light exposure and temperature. Nylon 12 parts do not dramatically change over time.

Nylon 12: This thermoplastic is already used in practically every imaginable application and is well-suited for prototyping, finished parts, and everything in between. Best suited for Engineering & Product Design, Manufacturing & Production, and Medical. Commonly known as thermoplastic material for industrial 3D printing and suitable for functional prototypes and small batch manufacturing.

You can count on personalized support around the clock by email, live chat, or by joining a live webinar.

Which Formlabs resin has the highest impact strength?

For the highest impact strength among Formlabs materials, choose Durable Resin. Other good options include Tough Resin or Grey Pro Resin.

What type of material is Formlabs resin made out of?

The proprietary material of Formlabs resins is liquid photopolymers.

Are there any post-curing requirements for the ESD Resin?

ESD Resin requires post-curing to reach its optimal mechanical properties. The print’s specific post-curing settings depend on equipment and the geometry of the part. 

What kind of resins does Formlabs 3D printers use?

There are 3 types of resins available: Standard Resins, Engineering Resins, or Nylon Powders (for the Fuse 1).

Custom-formulated Standard Resins deliver the highest-quality output plus capture astonishing detail without sacrificing strength. Engineering Resins are versatile, reliable, and formulated to help reduce costs, iterate faster, and bring better experiences to market. Nylon Powders 3D print production-ready, end-use parts on the Fuse 1 printer. Check out our Formlabs Resins Library.

Is there a way to recycle used solvent?

Yes, Formlabs recommends recycling solvents for environmental and costs concerns. Investing in recycling Isopropyl alcohol (IPA) reduces waste and disposal costs, production emissions, purchasing costs, and supply chain interruptions.
