Grey resin for medical applications


Good day! Can the grey resin be used to fabricate medical devices such as diffusers? If not, what are the possible dangers? Thank you very much!


It is better to use biocompatible materials… if you need an object to be 3D printed in biomedical materials please let me know


Hey Carlo!

As Nano mentioned above me, erring on the side of caution with Biocompatible materials is probably the right way to go.

That being said, the main factor is whether or not this printed part will be in contact with the human body. If it will, you should 100% Biocompatible. If it won’t be in contact with the human body, that gives you a little more leeway.

Hope that helps!
