Our 3D Resin Blends
Our Standard Blend resin is a real multi purpose resin, most cost effective for printing your day to day objects. The fully cured resin has a hardness of 35 shore D.
Available in Red, Black and unpigmented.
Recommended retail price €45,- p/kg.
The Industrial Blend resin has been developed especially for some industrial clients who were in need for a resin that is extra hard and would maintain its structural integrity while exposed to very Low and High temperatures.
Because of these properties it is one of the few resins perfectly suitable for vulcanisation.
For relatively low temperature metals like pewter or tin you can also use the Industrial Blend to print your moulds and cast straight from the printed mould. Read all about it in this Instructable
The hardness of the fully cured resin is 75 shore D.
It has been tested from -45C to +225C.
Available in Red, Black and unpigmented.
Recommended retail price €55,- p/kg.
The Castable Blend has been designed to cast your pieces in bronze, copper, tin or iron using standard vacuum investment casting methods and settings. It is an Ideal resin for casting pieces of art, Toy models, machine parts. The fully cured resin has a hardness of 73 shore D.
Available in Red only.
Recommended retail price €65,- p/kg.
Snow White is the first resin in this market segment that is white, and stays white!
It has a milky white colour, which makes it an ideal resin for printing architectural designs or other designs where white is the predominant colour.
Combine Snow White with one of our pigments to create any pastel colour you like.
Snow White comes with one free 5ml dropper bottle pigment of your choice: Red, Blue, Yellow or Black. This is enough for 1 kg. resin
Snow White has a 83 Shore D hardness and has the look and feel of injection moulded plastic.
The viscosity is about 80 Mpas which makes it also very suitable for Top Down design printers.
Absorption and cure speed are similar to our other blends.
Recommended retail price € 50,- p/kg. (5ml pigment included)
Deep Black has specifically been designed to get the best out of your High End DLP/SLA machine.
We have combined this special blend with near nano carbon particles, which enables you to print objects in the highest resolutions.
Despite being black, the cure times are just as any other of our fast curing resins.
The Deep Black has a 81 Shore D hardness and, just like Snow White, has the look and heel of injection moulded plastic.
The viscosity is around 80 Mpas, so not only bottom up printers can benefit of the exceptional resolution of Deep Black.
Recommended retail price €60,- p/kg.
F1+ Blend is the blend especially made for the formlabs Form1 and Form1+ printers.
The F1+ Blend is available in four colours: Clear, White, Grey and Black.
The F1+ is not only compatible with the machine but also with the Formlabs PreForm software. Just choose the appropriate colour and the V01 setting. Then Dial in the layer height. Because of the very high detail of the blend, especially the Black version, astonishing detailed results are achievable at 0.05 and 0.02mm layer height.
The F1+ blends are compatible with our pigments. Depending on the pigments added, you might have to choose a differend colour setting in the PreForm software this might take some experimenting. Lighter colours need lighter colour settings in the software. Beware,the darker settings in the software makes the machine emit more energy, so don't use the Black setting for a Clear/transparent colour
Recommended retail price €67,50 p/kg.
Our Pigment Set contains four of 20ml dropper bottles of pigments.
The pigments are of our own design and produced by ourselves. The pigments are of the finest quality and have an exceptional fine particle structure. The four colours of the set enables you to mix any colour of the rainbow.
To give you an idea of the pigment strength, we use about 4ml red pigment per kg. to make our SB Red and our IB Red.
Usage: Just measure the amount of resin you need to fill your Vat. Slowly drip the amount of pigment to the resin (stir after every few drops) until you have reached the colour you want to achieve. Don't forget to make a note of the amount of drops for future use.
You can mix the colours to make any other colour.
Don't forget: You can always add some more pigments, but you can never take them out!
Be careful not to spill, stains are very hard to remove. Wear gloves!

Our resin properties
All our resins are designed to be ultra fast!
Curing times of 0.5 seconds for 0.02mm layers are easily achieved on standard Dlp printers with an average light source of around 240Watts.
A broad range of reactivity!
The resin have a very broad range of reactivity, it extends from the very short wavelengths of 225nm to the near/visible wavelengths of 415nm. By incorporating a very smart blend of photo initiaters and sensitizers, almost any light source can be used to initiate the polymerization process of our resins. No need to modify your expensive DLP projector! Do you have a laser SLA machine? or perhaps a DLP printer with a LED source of illumination? As long as the wavelength is between 225nm and 415nm, it will work, and it will work fast!
Besides the wavelength of the lightsource several other factors are important, so please check out our properties page. If you are in doubt if your specific machine is compatible with our resins, just send us an e-mail
The Fun To Do resins have an ultra low shrinkage!
Where 3.5% is regarded little shrinkage, we have the limited the shrinkage to 0.5%.
It is basically what you see is what you get. 3.5% seems to be little but if you take an object of 10cm (100mm) 3.5% is 3.5 mm which is nearly half a centimetre! This is huge compared to the 0.5mm the Fun To Do Resins achieve.
A natural resistance to water and most chemicals!
Our resins have a natural resistance against water, in liquid form it is highly hydrofobic. Once fully cured there is hardly any chemical that can disolve our resins. Especially the Industrial blend has a high resistance to chemicals. Cured prints have been withstanding the elements and various chemicals for several years now!

User Friendliness makes you want to build more!
When designing the resins we have spent quite some effort in making the resin as user friendly as possible. These efforts have resulted in a series of low odor resins with minimal skin irritation.
Affordable resins make it possible for you to build more!
By using our affordable resin you can afford to experiment, extend your knowledge about supports, exposure times, material thickness without having to think about the costs of the materials all the time.

Years of studying and practising poly chemistry in various disciplines really pays off in the design of practical and affordable resins. Our resins are not only used in the DLP 3D printing world, but are also popular in the SLA industry.

Once I got to know the dedication these guys at Fun To Do work with, The speed in answering their e-mails and the prompt delivery of the resin, it came as no surprise that the resin performed even better than expected. The curing speed was way faster than anything I had used before, saving me seconds per layer. Once I got all the timings dialled in right, I had incredible detailed prints.
After finishing a print with the Standard Blend, the build definitely needs post cure to get real hard. But once fully cured it is hard, but flexible enough not to break.
I also tried the Industrial Blend, It does exactly what it says on the tin! Because the resin is much harder during printing it saves a lot of time on settling etc in between the layer exposures
