Material Guide | SLA | Liqcreate Stone Coal Black


Liqreate, a company from the netherlands, was so kind to send me some material samplesFormlabs Form2 printer. Here you have the results of my tests with their Stone Coal Black and a video tutorial on how to print with 3rd party resins on the Form2: Settings in software and printer, cleaning resin, exchanging resin tank and build platform, post processing the prints and more.


I am in love with this material as it is easy to work with, has a beautiful Quality and a nice smooth touch when sanded. I used 25 Micron to print the highest detail possible.








-Print Mode: OpenMode (Wiper, Resin Heating and automatic refill disabled)

-Material Preset: Grey V3

-Resolution: 0.1, 0.05, 0.025 mm (100, 50, 25 micron)


Material Properties


-high resolution, fine details => perfect for miniatures

-smooth, velvet like surface

-hard material

-opaque color

-very few to no fumes

-very low shrinkage

-standard resin for many purposes


Material Properties - Technical


The following informationen can be found in the data sheets at Liqcreate's websiteand are meant to be guiding values, these values can differ with printer type and way of post processing the prints (e.g. strength of the UV lamp).


-Viscosity: 700 cps at 25°C (room temperature): as a reference Formlabs Grey/Black Resin is about 850 - 900 cps (centipoise) and is more viscous

-Shore D Hardness: 78 - 80

-Water absorption: 0.3%

-Tg: 52°-54°C (Glas Transition Temp => Transition from hard to soft or flexible)

Material Guide | FDM | Taulman TGlase


TGlase is a PET material, which is used in drinking bottles and therefor is food safe. I tested green, blue and clear TGlase on my Ultimaker 2+


The TempTower test had his ideal results in the range of 230°-240°C with a nozzle size of 0.8mm.

The larger the nozzle the clearer the result, as there are less internal refractions of the light inside of the printed object.












-Print Temperature Range: 230°-240°C

-Heated Bed: not neccessary, 60-70°C on Glas without Gluestick or other adhesive with nozzle close to the print bed

-heat chamber/heat shield: not neccessary, room temperature ~24°C is sufficient


Material Properties


-impact resistant, stiff, high strength


-very clear

-FDA conform (food-safe)

-sticks well to heated acrylic or glas

-small shrinking => less warping => that is why no heat chamber is needed

-easy print

-not biodegradable but recyclable

-very good "Bridging" properties (print over a cdistance in mid-air)

-no odors


Material Properties - Technical


The following informationen can be taken from the materials datasheets and are used as guidance values, the values can vary with different printers, print settings, or post process treatment.


-Shore D Hardness: 

-Water Absorption: %

-Tg: 78°C (Glas Transition Temp => Temperature at which material transition from hard to soft/flexible, point at which material might deform)

3D Print on Fabric | Nr 1:  V Neckline or Necklace



It was time for a design that can be used for a tutorial. This time it is a necklace or

decor for your v neckline on your fashion project. It was printed on a net like fabric,

first 2-3 layers directly on the printers build plate, then the rest of the print after the

fabric was layed onto the first layers. This way the elements will firmly stick to the

fabric and can even be washed with 30° C in your machine.

Watch the complete tutorial in either english or german down below.


Want to stay up-to-date about the topic Sewing & Co? Then visit my Thingiverse

group or download the design directly at Thingiverse. In the group you will find discussions, tutorials, useful things and you can ask

questions to solve your sewing projects.


Cheers RobotMama.
