Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on May 27, 2018
I've got about 40 hours of printing with the black resin and, so far, I prefer it over the clear green that came with the machine.

The problem I had with the green resin is that the surfaces of the model that actually touched the support always came out really "mushy". It was as if too much resin was curing around the supports, softening the details. I assume this is just a problem with transparent resins in general. I was never really able to figure it out.

The black resin, however, doesn't have this problem at all! It's actually pretty great. The only complaint I have so far is that the first few layers of the support platform tend to want to lift around the edges. It works out over time and has yet to affect any of my prints, but it's kind of worrisome when starting a long print.

If you're print solid or thick-walled parts, you're going to get a true black. If you print small objects with thin sections or walls, it ends up being more of a really dark smokey grey. It's something to consider if you're printing 'final' products.
