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)
-high resolution, fine details => perfect for miniatures
-smooth, velvet like surface
-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
-impact resistant, stiff, high strength
-FDA conform (food-safe)
-sticks well to heated acrylic or glas
-small shrinking => less warping => that is why no heat chamber is needed
-not biodegradable but recyclable
-very good "Bridging" properties (print over a cdistance in mid-air)
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.
