Differentiated photopolymers are a key part of propelling 3D printing into a new era of production. Resins with targeted property sets tailored to serve the material requirements of end-use products can be formed into lightweight, complex, and variable shapes with ease using top-down digital light processing (DLP) technology. And with materials that make parts less dense without a strength drop-off, optimization for de-densification adds further value through lightweighting. 

Stress-Strain curve evaluations traditionally factor out the design to evaluate how a material will perform. However, in the world of additive manufacturing, 3D architectures change the game. Designers can now look at materials in a more toughness-per-density way to optimize the strength-to-weight ratio (proportional to performance-to-cost ratio) of their component.


In this webinar you'll:

  • Identify materials targeted for performance, such as the industry’s highest heat deflection temperature or the highest tear strength on the market

  • Gain insight on how part lightweighting optimizes the value of additive manufacturing through reduced material usage

  • Explore top-down DLP technology application examples with cost per part evaluations, from thousands of large parts, like cushions, or over 5 million small parts, like earbuds, per year in custom geometries not possible with traditionally manufactured goods
