Our selection of water soluble 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 water soluble 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
Sacrificial technology is ideal for manufacturing materials with complex shapes (where casts are intertwined with the mold) for engineering, industrial and dental applications since traditional dental materials can be easily cast or injected by gravity or under pressure in heat resistant water soluble sacrificial molds printed with our sacrificial 3D resins, with even low cost SLA, DLP & LCD 3D printers.
Cleaning & postprocessing of water soluble sacrificial 3D printed resins:
- For cleaning water soluble sacrificial 3D resins use our Cleaning Fluid WS1 and Cleaning Fluid WS2 Bio
Our water soluble sacrificial resins are ideal for printing Injection Molds IM for injecting/casting of:
- waxes such as our 3Dresyns Waxes
- low, medium and high injection (processing and/or curing) temperatures up to 200C or higher, for injection of traditional materials such as:
- plastics such as our new Resin Injection & Casting 3Dresyns, which are light and/or heat curable biocompatible resins or
- polyurethanes for making aligners with the benefit of reducing production costs (laser cutting is not required)
- nylon (polyamide 12) for making partial flexible dentures
- PMMA for making rigid denture bases
- ceramic feedstocks (Ceramic Injection Molding CIM) such as our Ceramic 3Dresyns slurries
- metal feedstocks (Metal Injection Molding MIM) such as our Metal 3Dresyns slurries
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 our water 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 Black is our preferred black colored resolution increaser for improving resolution without reducing water solubility
- our consultancy for customised Full 3D Printing Systems includes 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: Isopropanol and/or water cannot be used for cleaning water soluble sacrificial 3D printed resins since they will dissolve them during the cleaning process!!

After placing your order request the more detailed Instructions for Use "IFU" of our water soluble 3D resins at: info@3Dresyns.com
- water Solubility speed: IM HDT WS>IM UHR WS>IM UHT WS>IM HT WS
- low power printers, such as LCD/MLCD printers give improved water solubility vs high power SLA laser printers
- remember to order our specific cleaning fluids recommended for each sacrificial 3D resin

Read this article published in the international journal "nature", world-renowned for publishing the finest peer-reviewed research in all fields of science and technology. In this paper our water soluble sacrifical resins were investigated and used for printing sacrificial materials:
- Patient-specific brain arteries molded as a flexible phantom model using 3D printed water-soluble resin
*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.
