Standard Resin Overview

Printed on an SLA or SLA XL 3D printer, Standard Resin works great for prints with fine details. It has a smooth finish right out of the printer making it ideal for rapid prototyping and product development. The surface can be painted and dyed.

Standard Resin is great for prototyping parts that need smooth finishes. If you’re looking for parts that can be painted and displayed visually, standard resin is a great option for capturing fine, intricate details. It’s also great for sanding and post-processing, essential for parts that need to be finished after printing.

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
⭐⭐⭐ Detailed Quality - 50 microns
⭐⭐⭐⭐ High Detailed Quality - 25 microns


Choose from black, white, clear or gray at no additional cost!

Pro's of Standard Resin

When Standard 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
  • Ability to capture intricate features
  • Quick printing turnaround times, we can print as quick as 2 business days!

Con's of Standard 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
  • Low to none chemical resistance
  • Custom colors are available but have a large added cost due to high cost for sourcing materials
  • Custom colors only available for bulk orders
