Next Generation of Functional SLA, DLP & LCD photopolymer resins for Engineering and Biomedical applications



NextGen 3Dresyns is the Next Generation of biocompatible SLA, DLP & LCD NG 3Dresyns, which exhibit a significant improvement of mechanical properties in comparison to the state of the art technology and competitive products.

The key advantages of the NextGen Tough and Foldable TF grades are increased toughness and foldability without breaking of even extra hard grades (Shore D80), which normally suffer from significant brittleness. They exhibit superior shattering/impact resistance, without any brittleness despite their high hardness (Shore D80).

Our NextGen 3Dresyns are ideal not only for modeling and prototyping  but also for making high performance functional materials. They provide superior mechanical properties than conventional thermoplastics such as ABS, PP, etc,..

Its use is being studied and implemented in few engineering applications, such as the automotive production lines of Volvo, see page 14 at: Volvo next step in additive manufacturing

Benefits of the SLA, DLP & LCD NextGen 3Dresyns product range

  • All products can be easily blended together to achieve intermediate properties (rigidity, toughness, hardness/flexibility balance) for specific minimum feature size printed parts, with easy and intuitive prediction of final prperties by interpolation
  • All products have similar fine tuning characteristics, the Fine Tuner dosages and print settings of any of our NextGen 3Dresyns in your printer will work with any other NextGen 3Dresyns, making easy and fast the overall fine tuning process, "fine tuning one resin, works for all the rest". Ideal for making blends of NextGen 3Dresyns to balance overall properties of your 3D prints.   
  • Any basic, special, custom, bio and CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black & White) colors can be ordered upon request (click on the icons below)

        • Special and Custom NCS and RAL colors are available upon request.
        • CMYK: cyan, magenta, yellow, black and white light fast colors already added to the resins without any settling/sedimentation.
        • A NextGen 3Dresyns Colors kit is a color kit available for printer users interested in controlling the color strength by adding the colors themselves to the resins.   

        Shore Hardness Scales

        CLICK HERE; SPECIAL PACK OFFER OF 4 DIFFERENT MATERIALS OF YOUR CHOICE:  IDEAL FOR SELECTING THE RIGHT HARDNESS  & MECHANICAL PROPERTIES FOR YOUR SPECIFIC APPLICATION

        * Note: Shore hardness values are relative and approximate, since in practice hardness can be perceived higher or lower than the declared values. Hardness depends on several variables, including dosage of Fine Tuners FT1 and LB1 used, light wavelength and power, exposure time, post-curing settings, time from printing until hardness readings since materials tend to get harder upon time until their properties stabilise in a couple of hours, effect of room temperature when making the hardness readings, specially for flexible grades, etc.

        Shore hardness readings also depend on the thickness of the prints. Below 6 mm thickness, and when readings are too close to the sides (less than 12 mm) materials may show lower or higher hardness readings, specially for flexible grades.

        Since most 3D prints are usually small in size, perceived hardness (and rigidity) differs from Shore hardness readings undertaken with bigger prints, with more than 6 mm thick and at least 12 mm from the sides.   

        Perceived foldability also depends on the thickness of the print: the higher the thickness the lower the foldability for the same resin.
