Visually Clear Resin?

Postby james_lan » Mon Apr 20, 2015 9:40 am

I was wondering about a visually clear resin which would be suitable for lenses. I just wondered if anyone had seen one or if they were even possible (as some of the curing with most resins occurs a little above the visible cutoff at ~400nm).

There has been some success with the Form 1+
perhaps this will give you some clue.

Is there an Acrylic based resin which could be used to print clear lenses? I am planning to print clear material on a custom-built DLP equipment. I am also concerned about the projection to be used; the resolution of the projector (HD or 2K or 4K, 1-chip or 3-chip DMD, etc.), wavelength, power output and the focusing system!
