How to Identify Your Resin Version
PreForm prompts you to identify your resin type and version when setting up each print. The material select dialog looks like this:
First, select your material. If the material only has one version, it will automatically select. If the material has multiple formulation versions, refer to the full formulation number on the bottle or cartridge label. If there is no visible formulation number, it is the formulation number ending in 01.
Be careful to never mix resins, even if they are different versions of the same color. Use a different resin tank for each resin to ensure successful prints!
Which Resin to Use
Clear: Transparency, polishes to near optical clarity, great for internal channels and working with light.
White: Neutral tone, slight opacity when thin, provides a great base color for painting prints.
Grey: Neutral tone, slight opacity when thin, great for showing off surface finish, photographs easily.
Black: Highly pigmented, our most opaque, high detail resin, great for printing small, accurate features.
Flexible: Impact resistance, compression, great for ergonomic soft-touch grips.
Castable: Investment casting, blue color, slightly softer than standard resins before post-curing.
Tough: Impact resistance, cyclic stress or strain, machining, snap-fits and living hinges.
Dental SG: Designed to directly print surgical and pilot drill guides. Class 1 biocompatible resin (EN-ISO 10993-1:2009/AC:2010, USP Class VI)
Layer Height Options
The technical properties of different resins allow some layer heights to be limited. Check which resin types you are using with the table below:
|200 Microns||100 Microns||50 Microns||25 Microns|
|Clear Resin||Form 1+|
|White Resin||Form 1/1+|
