FDM Interactive Table
Use our interactive FDM table to find recommended 3D printers. The printers are judged on quality, features, open-source, prices, and customer support.
Resin Printers, Software, Resin, & Supplies
This Resin 3D Printing guide is intended to provide a baseline for the tools and information needed to start resin printing.
3D Printing Air Quality Roundup
The data from research papers presented here add to a growing foundation of understanding 3D printing safety.
Resin vs Filament: Strength, Quality & Cost
Filament is ideal for trinkets, rapid prototyping, and large prints. Resin is ideal for miniatures, jewelry and high-temperature parts.
Resin Printer Ventilation
The recommended location for a resin printer is a garage or workshop. Resin printers indoors should be enclosed and vented out a window.
Resin Setup Preparation
Jumpstart your resin printer setup with inspiration on enclosures, ventilation, heating, and planning tips.
Heating Resin Printers
Learn about various setups for heating Resin 3D Printers when the outdoor temperature drops below 20°C (68°F).
Resin Printing Respirator
Respirators are a must-have when interacting with resin and thankfully 3M has affordable facepieces and cartridges.
Ultrasonic Cleaning Prints with IPA
Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA) can be safely used in an ultrasonic cleaner if it is placed in a bag or container with the print.
Recycling Resin IPA via Distillation
Distillation results in crystal clear IPA, but there are safety concerns that should be addressed. Filtration alone does not purify IPA.
