Formlabs Resin on other printers

Hello Everyone.
I was wondering if anyone tried using the formlabs resins on other printers?

I have an Elegoo Mars Pro 1 printer and was wondering if anyone tried using the formlabs resins.

Currently the Mars Pro 1 is not in great condition and needs some upgrades but wanted to know if it worth to upgrade it as a back up.

Thanks

I think those other printers use UV lights with LCD screens and are not laser based like Formlabs. The resin will most likely not properly cure because the resin is designed for a more powerful light source.

You can do a small test print and see how it goes.

Our resins will work well on a wide range of other SLA printers, including LCD based ones like the Mars Pro. If there is enough interest, we could work to develop recommended settings/profiles to make it easy to run them.

That might be a good idea

Yeah that would be great. I did some digging a while back and found some resins that work on lcd printers but most of them claims it will have to best results on a 2k or above ( which I need to upgrade)

Recommended settings/profiles would be very helpful! Thank you!

That would be really cool @MaximLobovsky. I’m sure there’s a large market of people who have other printers who could benefit from using your resins.

If you guys put it out there a bit more how cross-compatible they are, you may be surprised how much demand there is.

I’m not sure how different the settings would be for different models. I have an Elegoo Mars and Saturn though and am getting a Jupiter very soon.

Hope to hear something back about this soon. I know I’m not the only one who would benefit from having more legitimate resins in the arsenal.

Thanks!

Hey @Brewmaker,

Thanks for expressing interest! I’ll make sure this information gets passed along to the appropriate channels!

WRONG QUESTION;

Will the much cheaper Elegoo resin work on the FormLabs 3+??

Merhaba Bende merak ediyorum . Formlabs 3L yazıcımda Farklı marka reçine kullanılabiliyor mu ?

We have run at least Clear v4, Tough 1500, Durable, High Temp v2 on low-cost LCD systems.

Our high performance materials are often more viscous than other materials. This requires settings with lower speeds on squishing and peeling the materials. Making sure the resin/printer is warm can help too.

Which materials are you most interested in?

Here is one random setting we had for Durable on a Phrozen Sonic Mini 4k

I would like to get settings for the Rigid 10k resin. Got some on hands and would like to give it a go on my Saturn 3, 12k. Thank you. @MaximLobovsky

Hi @andriynoskov, I’m a Product Researcher for Formlabs. Would you be open to a short call? I’d like to hear more about your use case and see how we can help in the short term.

Hi @Brewmaker, I’m a Product Researcher for Formlabs. Would you be open to a short call to chat more about this? Shoot me a message at jessie@formlabs.com if you are. Thanks!

Hi all! I’m a Product Researcher for Formlabs and would love to hear more about requests for using Formlabs materials on low-cost DLP and LCP printers.

This is a topic that’s been on our minds more recently and we want to understand which materials are most requested, how you’d like to receive the settings (ex: in a Google Drive, on the Formlabs website, integrated with slicers like Chitubox, etc.), and which setting parameters (50um, 100um) would benefit the most people.

If you’re open to chatting more privately, shoot me a note at jessie@formlabs.com or just drop your thought below!

I don’t mind for a call but i think i expressed all in the previous msg. Formlabs website would be fine i think, so everyone who has such need of settings could find those. 50um is the more common setting i suppose. Draft resin, model resin, rigid 10k, standard ones, nylon, the ones that are most commonly used are in interest. Thanks.
