Solidator 3D Printer - Materials

Advanced Materials for Engineering Parts

Liquid Plastic Material

Solidator works with liquid plastic materials (similar to nail polish) that harden when exposed to strong visible light. We work with partners that provide these materials to you directly. We have developed a special liquid plastic resin mix with our resin providers.

 

R001 Professional Transparent Orange Resin (High-Speed Prototyping) – 130 EUR/kg

 

This is the standard material on the Solidator DLP Printer. It cures extremly fast and is a hard Plexiglas like material. The Solidator Professional Transparent Orange resin is extremely hard. The hardness of the printed parts (at 0.1 mm layer height) is around 85D (shore hardness)—this is about the same value as PLA (about 85D), harder than ABS (about 75D) and certainly harder than POM (about 80D). The melting point of the printed parts is about 110°C (230°F). The layer cure time of this material is around 6- 12 seconds on the Solidator V2.



R020 Solidator Casting Resin – 175 EUR/kg

The Solidator Casting resin is optimized for casting larger parts to metals. It has good burn out capabilities:

In the investment casting process (more info here)  a model is printed in a burnable material (R020) then coated with ceramics
in order to make a mold. in that mold later on hot metal is filled in which burns out the model and takes the shape
of the model. The layer cure time of this material is around 15 seconds on the Solidator V2.

 

 

 

R030 Solidator Functional Material – 185 EUR /kg

This material is used for parts that need to be hard and a bit bendable (e.g. snap-fit designs). In contrast to R001 it is pretty shock resistant and bendable.
This allows also simplified assembly by bending parts instead of screwing them together. However it is curing slower (around 15 seconds) and it needs post curing.

Finishing and Coloring

 

Post-Curing the materials is not needed except for Functional Resin (X-Green).
Resin settings are fixed in our software for each supported resin — so you do not need to test all this yourself.
You can spray-paint these materials easily to get any color and multi-color parts with acrylic spray paint.
