3D Printing for Modelling – Resin
The first 3D printer I bought was a resin one. It does detail beautifully and is a game changer when it comes to modelling.
I’ve used it for so many detail parts and it is very versatile. Resin is a little more difficult to use than an FDM or filament printer but the extra effort is worth it.
In the pictures below I’ve compared my prints to a Shapeways print that I bought – mine are green, the Shapeway strong and flexible are white and the frosted ultra detail (FUD) are slightly translucent. They’ve changed all the product names since I bought these… I think my prints hold up well and I am really pleased how they come out.
