Formlabs has introduced two new 3D printing resins and its new Open Platform.
The new silicone 40A resin (pictured) enables the creation of soft, pliable and durable parts using Fromlabs’ patent-pending Pure Silicone Technology.
“It’s the first affordable 100 percent silicone 3D printing solution, enabling you to produce flexible and resilient objects in-house in a matter of hours,” Formlabs says.
The new Alumina 4N resin is a high-density and high-purity technical ceramic 3D printing material. Formlabs says it offers exceptional performance in extreme conditions, such as high temperatures, abrasion, and chemical exposure. It is thermally resistant, hard, mechanically strong, and chemically inert, making it suitable for a wide range of applications.
Formlabs new Open Platform is designed for advanced users, enabling them to print with any material. Its Open Material Licence enables users to access any unvalidated custom photopolymer resin with a 405mm wavelength. Users can now access a wider range of curated resins from top-tier manufacturers without reducing part quality, reliability, and ease of use. The new platform also offers a print settings editor so users can personalize their print settings.
