Which brand of resin do you prefer to use?

Postby Excited4DLP » Fri Oct 24, 2014 1:50 pm

This will be my first time buying resin and seeing how there are so many different brands of resin and so many different types of printers out there I wanted to see who uses what with what type of printer.

My printer has the Acer H6510BD (which is the same as the Acer P1500). Who else has the same projector and which resins are you using/prefer to use?

I think this will help others figure out which resin would work best with their printers.

And go!!!

hi excited4dlp,

i'm using a acer P1500 and i've tried 6 different manufacturer resin and within thos manufactures i've tried 2 or 3 types of resin.. mostly all resin will work.. it depends really on your application.. big parts, small parts.. hard parts, soft parts.. also mixing them with different pigments you have to take your time tuning your printer a little..

hope this helpes.

cheers,
hp

Thanks for kicking things off hp. Care to elaborate a little more on your break down? Which resins from which manufacturers work best for which applications? If everyone shares their findings then everyone can learn from other people's experience, so it will save time for those who are just getting started. :)

I agree, from what I have seen so far I only found descriptions on how to fix "bleeding" with pigments.
(My problem as well) using Fun To Do Standard Blend Red, and SubG+ White.

I have tried 50 /100 micron layer-height with different exposuretimes, nothing helped.

The question I am asking is : If pigments help that much (solution to all evil).
Why are the resins not sold with a higher pigment-content?

Also, Since there are people who could afford to try several brands, which do your prefer?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As for now, I am considering Fun To Do - Insustrial Blend (Black) or possibly MakerJuice SubSF (Little RP) Green
If anyone tried any of the following (including the once that disappointed me please read above) and how the compare.

PLEASE report back (I can't afford to try them all)

So far I've only tried FTD red standard and MJ SubG+ Green.

both have performed well but FTD seems more forgiving and holds more detail
