Draft Resin Overview

Draft Resin is a great alternative to Standard Resin. It’s similar in it’s mechanical properties but provides faster and more accurate printing. This means we can provides more cost-effective quotes with faster lead times than Standard Resin.

Quality (Microns)

This number determines how thin each layer is. The smaller the micron count, the thinner the layer, this results in higher surface detail and better surface finishes.


⭐⭐ Standard Quality - 100 microns
⭐ Draft Quality - 200 microns


Material prints as-is, no color options available. Material is naturally dull gray in color.


Pro's of Draft Resin

When Draft Resin is a perfect material choice
  • Great for visually aesthetic pieces like figurines and characters
  • Best at capturing small and fine details
  • Prototyping with nicer surface finishes
  • Great for painting/finishing
  • All the advantages of standard resin with a lower pricetag
  • Quick printing turnaround times, we can print as quick as 2 business days!

Con's of Draft Resin

When to seek other material options

  • Supports are necessary for printing which can affect the visual quality of the part
  • Requires extra post-processing to sand off nubs after removing supports
  • Less cost-effective than FDM
  • Can be very brittle
  • Custom colors not available, material is dull gray in color
  • Only available on SLA XL
