Experimental resin that allows printing pieces with a ceramic look and feel.

FormLabs has developed an experimental product platform called Form X. This platform presents innovative tools, materials and approaches for advanced users who want to explore the limits and options that stereolithography offers.

Ceramic Resin is the first material included in FormLabs' Form X platform. This material allows you to print pieces with a ceramic look and feel. This is because ceramic resin is a resin composed of a photopolymer filled with silica microparticles. This resin also has unique properties, since the pieces printed with this material can be sintered to create a totally ceramic piece.

This is experimental material, which means it requires a more pronounced learning and testing process than other FormLabs products. The Ceramic resin formulation is optimized for reliable and detailed prints.

Among the properties of Ceramic resin, it should be noted that it supports printing resolutions of 100 and 50 microns, being able to print pieces with a great finish and high level of detail.

Successful printing with Ceramic resin requires certain additional precautions, such as the use of a polyester film to protect the build platform.

Ceramic Resin does not require post-curing. However, parts must be fully dry before sintering. 

When sintering parts printed with this material, different factors must be taken into account, such as shrinkage. In the baking process, the printed parts will shrink by around 15% on the X and Y axes, and 29% on the Z axis.

For more information about the calcining and sintering process of the pieces, see the article “Firing and glazing Ceramic Resin”.

In the download section you can download the user guide to expand the information about the use and the steps to follow to print parts with FormLabs Ceramic resin.

Thanks to this type of materials, FormLabs gives the user freedom to research and search for new approaches in 3D printing with SLA technology.
