The Elegoo Mars is our fall 2019 pick for the "Best Budget Resin 3D Printer". Check out our review to find out why it replaced the famous Photon.
Read our guide to learn about all 10 types of 3D printing technology that 3D printers use today. Terms like FDM, SLA, DLP, SLS, DMLS, SLM, EBM, Material Jetting, DOD, and Binder Jetting simply explained.
Post-processing is critical for achieving the full resolution of your SLA 3D printer. Here are the best ways to go about cleaning up your SLA prints.
What many people don't actually know is that 3D printing is not a new technology. In fact, the first-ever patent for 3D printing was successfully issued in 1986. Let's take a closer look at the history of 3D printing and how it all came about.
Unlike thermoplastic filament printers, which typically use a 0.4-mm nozzle, a resin 3D SLA printer may have a laser spot size of 140 microns. The result? The smoothest and most precise 3D prints you've ever seen, if you know what you're doing...
In the past few years, the jewelry industry has been transformed with the introduction of 3D printers, which are capable of producing easily-castable, high detail parts. Let's take a look at some of the most popular 3D printers for jewelry.
The principles of DLP vs SLA are fundamentally the same. Both use light to induce polymerization of a photo-sensitive resin. But the way they go about applying this principle is what sets them apart. Here we take a deeper look at that divide in an DLP vs SLA shootout.
Two laser technologies, two similar uses, two different results. It's SLA vs SLS, with comparisons, and simple explanations of how these methods work. Sound interesting? Then keep reading!
If you've ever wondered what a UV resin 3D printer is and how it works, you've come to the right place. We'll explain resin 3D printing and then go into more detail about specific types of resin 3D printers.
Interested in the process of reproducing real objects through 3D scanning and 3D printing? In this article, we take a look at both technologies, paying special attention to how they differ and how they can work together.
In the always-growing world of 3D printing, there are two types of 3D printers which use lasers to build solid parts. If you are new to 3D printing, you might have already wondered what is a "3D laser printer". Well, let make it clear for you.
Does the SparkMaker FHD, billed as the “most affordable FHD SLA 3D printer” live up to its marketing hype or is it just marketing fluff? Read on as we review the specs of this machine.
Light is a potent force when directed properly, and 3D printing is certainly no exception. Explore this guide where we break down 3D printing using light, or rather the processes which make use of light.
3D printing is neither new nor limited to parts created from extruded plastic. Let's learn more about the established technologies, including how they work and what makes them unique.
Learn how to optimize your designs for SLA 3D printing, a not-so-simple 3D printing technology. In this guide, we present a number of tips that'll take you down the road to success!
Ever wanted to sit in the cockpit of a starfighter from Star Wars? With the new Nissan Rogue One you can while wearing a 3D printed helmet.
A Formlabs engineer is using SLA 3D printing to model and arrange his awkwardly designed future apartment, dubbing it "Tiny Town."
