In this, we explore commercially available photopolymer resins for vat photopolymerization (stereolithography -SLA) based additive manufacturing. Here we explore resins available from two leading SLA printer makers; 3D systems for industrial printers, and Formlabs for desktop printers. Also, applications and advantages of the resins from both suppliers are discussed in detail in below tables below.
