Formlabs Materials Library
Outstanding performance. Excellent detail.
Custom-formulated to deliver the highest-quality output, our Standard Resins capture astonishing detail without sacrificing strength.
Greyscale Resins for Prototypes and Models
With a matte surface finish, opaque appearance, and precise details, Black, White, and Grey Resins are ready to use right off the printer. Their neutral undertone also makes a great base for parts that will eventually be painted or undergo other finishing processes.
Clear Resin for Transparent Applications
Stereolithography 3D printing technology makes clear prints possible on the desktop. Clear Resin is great for fluidics and moldmaking, optics, lighting, and any parts requiring translucency.
Draft Resin for Truly Rapid Prototyping
Draft Resin prints up to four times faster than Formlabs standard materials, making it ideal for initial prototypes and rapid iterations to help bring products to market faster. Parts printed with Draft Resin exhibit a smooth grey finish and high accuracy. Use 200 micron settings for fast print speeds, or use 100 micron settings for models with finer details.
