Living hinge

Which resin works best for printing small objects that have a living hing, on a Form 3?

Hi @Eby,

Good question! Based on some previous threads I found, it looks like Tough 1500 and Durable could both be good resin choices for printing an object with a living hinge. Perhaps other users can share their experiences here as well.

Durable is by far the better choice.

Both will “live” better if you don’t fully cure the hinge area. If the finished part will be exposed to UV, though, it’ll need to be painted to preserve the partially-cured “green” state.
