SLA Material Guide

Please note: All photopolymer resins mimic the strength & stiffness properties of similar thermoplastics.

 High Detail Resin

This material is ideal for visual / high detailed static models / prototypes. Similar properties to Acrylic; it is brittle in nature and is not recommended for mechanical applications. It has a matt finish.

Grey Resin

Durable (PE) Resin

Durable (PE) Resin has a low modulus, low surface friction, high elongation, and high impact strength. It produces parts with a smooth, glossy finish and can also be dyed.

Resilient (PP) Resin

Resilient (PP) Resin has great balance of being stiff and pliant. It also has fast recovery properties, making it ideal for snap fits, springs and hinged parts. Parts are semi matt in finish and can also be dyed.

Tough (ABS) Resin

ABS (Tough) Resin balances strength and compliance, making it the ideal choice for prototyping strong, functional parts and assemblies that will undergo brief periods of stress or strain.

ABS Resin

Glass Filled Resin

This resin is reinforced with glass, to offer very high stiffness and a polished finish. This material is highly resistant to deformation over time and is great for printing thin walls and features.

Glass Filled

High Temp Resin

High Temp Resin has a heat deflection temperature (HDT) of 238 °C @ 0.45 MPa. Use it to print detailed, precise prototypes with high thermal stability. This is more brittle than other resins.

Elastic Resin

The softest of all the resins; this 50A Shore material is suitable for prototyping parts normally produced with silicone. Great for parts that bend, stretch, compress, and hold up to repeated cycles without tearing.


Rubber Resin

This slightly firmer rubber resin has a shore hardness of 80A. This material is suitable for parts under compression, for damping and ergonomic grips and inlays.
