Made from soybean oil. Low odor. Biodegradable. Available in many bright and vivid colors. Compatible with most 3D printers. Cures quickly. Excellent for printing models, toys, and industrial prototypes.
Some colors are more readily available than others.
Resin with transparent properties. Available in a range of vivid colors. Compatible with most DLP, LCD, and SLA printers. Low shrinkage. Good price.
Runny consistency, though some find it easier to clean up. Resin darkens in UV curing.
Clear photosensitive resin. Low-odor. Tough and clear. Can be used for engineering components. Use with P.E.F.T. film or F.E.P. film resin tank. Cures between 355 and 420 nanometers. Can be used with color pigments.
Longer-term exposure to ultraviolet rays may yellow this clear resin.
Compatible with most LCD printers using 405-nanometer wavelength light. Use with LCD-LED light source. Spill proof bottle has an inner cap to prevent spills. Many users have a low fail rate on 3D prints. Cures properly.
Color may be unstable and may fade under light exposure.
Compatible with UV resin printers using DLP, laser, or LCD platforms. Reliable results in printing. Works with a range of printer brands. Less odor than comparable resin liquids.
White color turns off-white like ivory or old plastic. Ink can separate from resin if left in the printer vat for several hours.
Spools of PLA and ABS plastic are common with 3D printers, but some people prefer the versatility of liquid resins. Compared to plastics, resins can have a higher print resolution for the finer details common on toys, jewelry, and other small items. Resins are compatible with certain types of printers that have the ability to emit UV light for cooling and curing. Beyond color, your choices range from low-odor resins to professional-quality, rapid-cure formulas. For best results, think about the final product you aim to create before investing in 3D printing liquid. Some options are easy to paint or finish with chemicals or sandpaper when dry.
