A new and very unique 3D printing material resin has been created for SLA and DLP 3D Printing systems in the form of the Porcelite Ceramic Resin that offers a variety of unique properties.
Created by Tethon 3D the new 3D printing resin is now available for SLA, DLP and other UV printing technology and takes the form of a porcelain UV curable resin and ceramic composite.
Watch the video below to learn more about the properties of this new 3D printing resin but after being fired in a kiln transforms into a 100% porcelain object that can be glazed or finished with other coatings if required.
Our current process involves hand measuring and mixing, pouring directly into the 3D printer resin trays. To make Porcelite resin commercially available directly to the consumer, we need to mass produce and bottle it for shipment. This will require an investment in automated materials processing, bottling and packaging equipment.
Our design company, Elevate (Elevate.co) has designed a beautiful bottle for us, showing the Ingredients, Directions for Use and Precautions. One of the advantages of SLA/DLP printing, is the high resolution details that are achievable, ideal for industrial parts or jewelry. The suppliers of our raw materials are on board and waiting to send us the quantity of materials that we need to mass produce Porcelite once we know the quantities needed. Should there be a sudden shortage or delay in one of our essential ingredients, we have alternate supplier sources.
The Porcelite Ceramic Resin project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise just $5,000 in pledges to make the jump from concept to production. So if you think Porcelite Ceramic Resin is something your 3D printing could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help Porcelite become a reality.
