  • Course details

    Resin 3D printers use light to harden liquid resin layer by layer. Resin printers offer higher resolution than most filament-based printing, and are used in everything from moldmaking to dental applications. Now, access to affordable and reliable resin 3D printers has created new opportunities in additive manufacturing. In this course, you can learn all about the capabilities these tools have to offer and discover how to tune your workflow to get the most out of your machine. Instructor Joan Horvath and Rich Cameron show how to resolve the unique design and fabrication challenges when working with resin printers, helping you get a good print every time.

  • Deep dive: Resin 3D printing

    - Resin 3D printers can produce prints with amazingly delicate and precise features. Designing for one requires some knowledge of the process, materials, and software to get good results. - [Joan] If you're used to printing with filaments, you'll find that some filament printing practices are turned upside down when printing with resin. It's also important to know how to handle resin and to wash and post-cure your prints. - [Rich] Most likely, you'll be working in a proprietary ecosystem of the machine, material, and software. 3D printing has already made huge changes in some industries, like jewelry making. Other manufacturers have even designed machines with specific types of users in mind, like dentists. - We're Joan Horvath and Rich Cameron, the co founders of Nonscriptum LLC, and authors of many books on 3D printing and related technologies. We'll introduce you to the different types of resin 3D printers, and the…
