Elastic Resin Overview
Printed on an SLA 3D printer, Elastic Resin is engineered to simulate silicone at 50A hardness. It is a perfect material for prototypes that will bend, stretch, compress, and hold for repeated use without tearing.
Elastic Resin is great for small quick prints that you need quickly! If you’re not too concerned with surface finish and are looking for a material similar to silicone, this material is for you.
Soft-prototyping for robotics

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
⭐⭐⭐ Detailed Quality - 50 microns
Material prints as-is, no color options available. Material is naturally translucent in color.
Pro's of Elastic Resin
- It has moderate elasticicity from the elastic materials offered at Makelab
- Great for prototyping parts that would normally be produced in silicone
- Can stretch up to 160% of its original shape
- Decent tensile strength for objects under load
