3D resins for printing sacrificial molds
Our selection of sacrificial 3Dresyns and special additives for 3D printing sacrificial models and molds for injection of traditional materials such as waxes, silicones*, plastics, ceramics and metals feedstocks.
Our sacrificial SLA DLP and LCD 3D resins can be sacrified or eliminated by:
dissolution in water or alcohols with our heat resistant water soluble resins 3Dresyns IM WS product range for printing high deflection temperature water soluble sacrificial materials (individual products are shown in the icons below) and 3Dresyn Perfect Cast WS1 , which are ideal for injection of plastics, ceramics, metals and for jewelry and electroforming /electroplating
dissolution in solvents with our hard 3Dresyn IM-H-SS Bio and our flexible3Dresyn IM-F-SS Bio which ban be combined for custom rigidity adjustment of solvent soluble 3D printed resins for printing non water soluble sacrificial materials
by heat/melting with our heat soluble or meltable 3Dresyn Perfect Cast HS1, which is ideal for jewelry and electroforming /electroplating
breaking them easily by hand with our easy breakable 3Dresyn IM-SF and with our ultra safe 3Dresyn IM-SF MF Bio which is ideal for injection of soft materials such as silicones
Sacrificial technology is ideal for engineering, industrial and dental applications since traditional dental materials can be easily injected by gravity or under pressure in heat resistant water soluble sacrificial molds printed with our sacrificial 3D resins with even low cost LCD 3D printers.
Our 3Dresyns IM-WS have been designed for printing 3D printed Injection Molds IM with very high resolution for injecting/casting of:
The usage of sacrificial 3D resins is ideal for engineering and industrial applications, such as injection of Ceramics and Metal slurries used in CIM and MIM applications. Other applications such as Electroforming can be used for replacing the expensive multi step prior electrodeposition. Mandrels can be printed with ourwater soluble sacrificial 3D resins and dip coated with our conductive resins. After electrodeposition of metals such as gold, mandrels can be easily dissolved in water.
Fine Tuner FT1 is our preferred photo accelerant to adjust print speed to your printing specifications
Fine Tuner LB Cyan is our preferred cyan colored resolution increaser for improving resolution and fine detail printing without reducing water solubility
our consultancy for customised Full 3D Printing Systemsincludes all the required instrumentation (3D printer with radiometry, light power and temperature control, washing and postcurintg units and all the basic tools and training for start printing straight away.
Dissolution process in water in 3-6 hours (dependent on thickness) of 3D printed water soluble resins
Clean and postcure your water soluble 3D prints with Cleaning Fluid WS1 and Cleaning Fluid WS2 Bio. Note: Isopropanol and/or water cannot be used for cleaning water soluble sacrificial 3D printed resins since they will dissolve them!!
*Note: Injected molded RTV silicones use platinum catalysts, which are inhibited by some chemicals contained in 3D printed molds, leaving the surface of the silicone sticky or uncured. Full curing is required to avoid the risk of monomer extraction and silicone curing inhibition. The use of our Cleaning Fluid, Cure Tester and Purification kit also help to overcome this common problem, by eliminating the inhibiting chemicals from the surface of 3D printed molds.
