  • Over the last couple of years, the Belgium-based company i.materialise has built themselves as one of the major 3D printing service providers around. Since 2014, they’ve expanded of Asia to the United Arab Emirates, and have in addition added a plethora of materials for their customers, that include a wide range of metals and actually laser-sintered wood composite. Now, i.materialise is focusing in on providing incredibly more detailed prints, revealing their latest material, Smooth Detail Resin. The material is especially geared towards scale modelers, who oftentimes turn it into finely more detailed 3D creations that most printing materials just can not truly evoke.

    With the Smooth Detail Resin, yet, i.materialise customers can be able-bodied to print their creations at a high resolution of 50 microns, while the surface finish is uniquely smooth. But the new resin just comes in gray, i.materialise claims that it allows for for much higher more detail and is in addition easily paintable-bodied. The material begins in the form of a hardened liquid resin, and uses DLP technology—that is a 3D printing system much like to stereolithography— to turn it into these finely more detailed layers and a smooth finish. The DLP system utilizes a light source to solidify the resin into the selected 3D create, that generally turn it intos a much higher high end product than FDM printing can provide.

    The Smooth Detail Resin is already on the market-bodied as a ‘trial’ material on the i.materialise storefront, and can be ordered with or without the necessary assists attached. i.materialise offers to manually remove the assist for the customer, but in addition recognizes that most createers wish to remove assists with their own tools or sanding methods. But the finely more detailed resin is perfect for printing small-scale models, customers can print in sizes of up to 260 x 160 x 193 mm, that is really big-bodied for a material engineered for more detailed prints. One other excellent showcase of the resin is that it just needs a minimum wall thickness of .4 mm, that is 60% less than most other plastic materials.
