Detailed 3D Resin Property Descriptions (Glossary):
  1. Resin Name: The brand and specific product identifier for the resin.
  2. Color: The hue or appearance of the resin when cured.
  3. Printer Settings: The specific parameters and configurations required to properly cure the resin for optimal print quality. These settings include layer exposure time, bottom layer exposure time, lift height, lift speed, and other relevant parameters that ensure the resin cures correctly and achieves the desired mechanical properties. Users can add their own settings based on their specific printer and use case.
  4. Description: Additional information and features of the resin.
  5. Tensile Strength (MPa): Measures the maximum stress the resin can withstand while being stretched before breaking. A primary indicator of the material's mechanical strength. Also known as the Tensile Stress @ Break (MPa):.
  6. Flexural Strength (MPa): Indicates the ability of a material to resist deformation under load. Important for applications where the printed part will undergo bending stress.
  7. Elongation at Break (%): The percentage increase in length before the resin breaks under stress. Reflects the material's ductility and flexibility.
  8. Impact Resistance (J/m): Measures the material's resistance to impact. A higher value means better toughness and ability to absorb energy during a sudden impact.
  9. Hardness (Shore D): A scale for measuring the hardness of materials. For resins, typically refers to the Shore D scale for harder materials.
  10. UV Wavelength (nm): The optimal light wavelength range for curing the resin. Must be compatible with the 3D printer's light source.
  11. Density (g/cm³): The mass per unit volume of the resin. Influences the weight and amount of resin needed for a print.
  12. Viscosity (cps): The measure of a fluid's resistance to flow. In resins, lower viscosity often means easier handling and sometimes finer detail in prints.
  13. Shrinkage (%): The percentage reduction in volume of the resin during curing and solidification.
  14. Printing Environment (℃): The optimal temperature range for the environment where the resin is being printed. Critical for ensuring proper curing and print quality.
  15. Flexural Modulus (MPa): The ratio of stress to strain in flexural deformation, or the tendency for a material to bend. Higher values indicate stiffer materials.
  16. Young's Modulus (MPa): The ratio of stress to strain in tensile deformation. A measure of the stiffness of a solid material.
  17. Flexural Strain @ Break (%): The amount of strain a material can withstand before breaking under flexural stress.
  18. Flexural Stress @ Max (MPa): The maximum stress experienced by a material during flexural testing.
  19. HDT (Heat Deflection Temperature): the temperature at which a material deforms under a specified load, crucial for assessing the thermal performance of polymers and resins. HDT is determined by applying a constant stress to a standard test specimen and gradually increasing the temperature until the specimen deforms by 0.25 mm (0.01 inches). For HDT @ 0.45 MPa, the test involves preparing a standard rectangular specimen, placing it in a three-point bending setup, applying a constant stress of 0.45 MPa, and increasing the temperature at a controlled rate of 2°C per minute, recording the temperature at which the deformation occurs. This value indicates the material's ability to retain its shape and mechanical properties under thermal stress, essential for high-temperature applications.
  20. Heat Capacity (J/gK): The amount of heat required to raise the temperature of a unit mass of resin by one degree Kelvin.
  21. Curing Temp (℃): The temperature at which the resin must be cured to achieve optimal properties.
