Merry Holidays to all from the Spot-A Materials Team!
We wish you a merry holiday season a happy new year, hoping that success and exciting experiences are ahead for everyone! We at Spot-A Materials have enjoyed this past year greatly, an interesting voyage with growth and challenges. We hope to have more of that next year, MUCH more, as we have some exciting news for you in our plans. We’ll say no more for now, but keep posted, as there will be some good news here soon!
We will be taking a short break of our shipping activities between the 24th of December to the 4th of January, spending some time with family, friends & loved ones. We wish you the same and starting from the 5th of January 2015, we will be shipping again, worldwide, safely and reliably as usual!
Are you looking for a compatible resin for your professional or semi-professional 3D printer?….
We can help!
We are continuing our efforts to offer compatible resins through the whole range of printers. We have performed tests with 3D printers such as the Form1, the Envisiontec Perfactory, the Miicraft, SLA250 from 3DSystem, DWS….
Litho from illuminaid
We are happy to introduce a new line of resins in collaboration with illuminaid . Founded in 2013, illuminaid Co,.Ltd. are based in Seoul, South Korea. They are a 3D printer company with a strong research & development vocation.
From their website: “We thrive to provide user friendly and good quality 3D printers. We distribute our own 3D printer with innovative and home-developed 3D software. We also offer 3D printing services and workshops. We enable our customers to build their ideas with our first high quality 3d printer, the Litho.”
The beta tests with our adapted resins have concluded and we are proud to say that they have worked very well with the MiiCraft printer. They have been tested clear and with black dye, but white should also work out of the box. As usual, adding yellow or red pigments and dyes will help you increase print precision.
Envisiontec and 3DSystems SLA250
Great results have been incoming from our Envisiontec beta testers and after some modifications we will be shipping ready to use resins for the Perfactory RP with EMS and the Aureus, without the UV pass filter. Tests will be performed to check if the Ultra is able to use the resins as well*. The colors we will deliver for a start are opaque Red and Yellow. The required power setting varies between 750mW and 900mW (Spot-E) and exposure times are around 8 seconds per layer.
* We do not provide RFID cards.
We have received notice from several Form1 users that performed the latest firmware updates that the PDMS lined vat was degrading rapidly when using our resins at the specified settings. We are now testing some changes that will fix that issue. This means our resins will be usable safely on your printer again. Tests are coming along nicely! Note: the white pigmented resin will likely be replaced by a grey one as it improves xy accuracy.
Keep posted for further results of beta tests that are ongoing for a variety of printers out there. We keep on striving to be the most versatile and dedicated resin producer for the 3D printer industry!
