Resins for Desktop SLA
HARZ Labs produces resins for various types of desktop 3D printers, including SLA. The most common manufacturer of these printers is Formlabs. A feature of printers produced by this company is that printers have closed software that does not allow the user to interfere with print settings, and therefore does not allow the use of resin fr om any third-party manufacturer.
Our company has found a way out of this situation. We have developed materials that allow printing in modes similar to those of original resins. There is a special mark on the packaging of such materials Form2.

You need to click on the image of the printer, thereby going to the section "Your printer", then open "Settings" and then open the window "Open Mode", wh ere you move the slider to the mode "On".

After this, you should pour the resin into the cuvette. To print in open mode, be sure to use only the LT cuvette (green). The material should be poured by the level on the tray.
Preparing to print a Formlabs printer
After pouring the material into the cuvette, you should prepare the model in PreForm. When you start the program, you will be proposed to select the desired printer, print mode, and layer thickness. You can find the correct print modes and recommended layer thickness on our website.
