Best resin for drilling and tapping holes

I am interested in finding a formlabs resin that works well for drilling and tapping to mimic drilling and tapping into bone. Best case there is some kind of bone mimic material but I would also be happy to find something that just drills and taps easily (after curing).

Hello @andrewcurry -

This is a good question. For the physical properties, we have our Choosing the Right Material page. This can help with understanding the physical properties. If this is not for biocompatible use, you have a wide array of engineering resins like Rigid or Tough that would be good options, but I don’t know if they’ll mimic bone.


I’ve had good results with the Rigid Series
