What is 3D Printer Resin, exactly?
Let's get down to the nitty-gritty. In essence, 3D printer resin is a liquid solution that's made of a variety of monomers and oligomers. Photopolymerisation ensures that the short carbon chains that make up monomers and oligomers cross-link and form polymers - a material that is composed of repeating units that make up large molecules. But what is photopolymerisation? And how does it work? The photopolymerisation process uses light energy to chemically destruct the terminal ends of monomers and oligomers, which in turn, enables them to react with one another and form the macrostructures that are known as polymers. These polymers end up being the hard plastic materials that form the basis of 3D printing. The technical term for this whole process is stereolithography, but it's also known as SLA as well as resin printing. The term "resin printing" originated from the fact that the chemical materials that undergo the aforementioned photochemical process are referred to as resins.
Top 10 spooky things to 3D print for Halloween It's the most wonderful time of the year: and no, we don't mean Christmas. We're obviously referring to Halloween. This spooky holiday is the perfect excuse for eating candy, scaring people, living your Hogwarts dreams and decking your house with skeletons and cauldrons.
Here’s how 3D printing is changing the game for artists 3D printing is reaching new heights. Since discovering this medium, commercial and fine artists are using 3D printing to create the artworks of their dreams. 3D printing blurs the line between technology and contemporary fine art. It is opening up a world of opportunities for those who are still dipping their toes in certain fields or those who want to step outside of their comfort zone by integrating different disciplines to create something completely innovative.
Lamborghini adopts 3D printing and prints more than 20,000 parts in 2020 Italian luxury car and SUV manufacturer Lamborghini is widely known for being ahead of the curve by implementing the latest technologies to the automobile market. Therefore, it came as no surprise when Lamborghini decided to 3D print car parts. By integrating 3D printing with traditional car-making methods, Lamborghini is creating timeless masterpieces - such as the Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 and the Sián Roadster - and showing everyone how it's done.
