Founded in 2013 in Oakland, California, MadeSolid researches, creates, and sells new materials for filament and UV curable printing technology.
The company's vision is to advance the capabilities of 3D printers through better materials. We balance our products with superior mechanical properties while promoting its ease of use. With the help of early beta users and a crowd sourcing campaign, MadeSolid has released several products that give 3D printer users access to advanced materials."
Royal DSM is a global science-based company active in health, nutrition and materials. It is a major producer of photoplymeric resins for use in DLP and SLA 3D printers in the automotive, consumer products and medical industries.
Redresins is formed out of the belief that Makers in Europe should have reliable, affordable and easy access to high quality 3D printing supplies. We are committed to bringing leading edge materials and reliable supply to the European 3D printing market.
All our resins are designed to be ultra fast!
Curing times of 0.5 seconds for 0.02mm layers are easily achieved on standard Dlp printers with an average light source of around 240Watts.
A broad range of reactivity!
The resin have a very broad range of reactivity, it extends from the very short wavelengths of 225nm to the near/visible wavelengths of 415nm. By incorporating a very smart blend of photo initiaters and sensitizers, almost any light source can be used to initiate the polymerization process of our resins. No need to modify your expensive DLP projector! Do you have a laser SLA machine? or perhaps a DLP printer with a LED source of illumination? As long as the wavelength is between 225nm and 415nm, it will work, and it will work fast!
Besides the wavelength of the lightsource several other factors are important, so please check out our properties page. If you are in doubt if your specific machine is compatible with our resins, just send us an e-mailThe Fun To Do resins have an ultra low shrinkage!
Where 3.5% is regarded little shrinkage, we have the limited the shrinkage to 0.5%.
It is basically what you see is what you get. 3.5% seems to be little but if you take an object of 10cm (100mm) 3.5% is 3.5 mm which is nearly half a centimetre! This is huge compared to the 0.5mm the Fun To Do Resins achieve.
A natural resistance to water and most chemicals!
Our resins have a natural resistance against water, in liquid form it is highly hydrofobic. Once fully cured there is hardly any chemical that can disolve our resins. Especially the Industrial blend has a high resistanceto chemicals. Cured prints have been withstanding the elements and various chemicals for more than a year now!

When designing the resins we have spent quite some effort in making the resin as user friendly as possible. These efforts have resulted in a series of low odor resins with minimal skin irritation.
Affordable resins make it possible for you to build more!
By using our affordable resin you can afford to experiment, extend your knowledge about supports, exposure times, material thickness without having to think about the costs of the materials all the time.
Two 3D Printing hobbyists found out that, 3D printing is not as it should be for every enthusiasts.
They found out that not all printers are created equal.
In fact there is a huge difference between them in capabilities and quality, even in the same price range.
But worse, not all materials are created equal.
Even within the same category, say filaments or resins, there can be huge quality and price differences.
So, having a printer and choosing the right one for printing need was easy.
But, choosing the right material, which performs just the way it is supposed to be and every time they needed it...
That was challenging, way beyond.
Especially when it came to ultimate details and continous performance.
They were lucky!
One of them holding a M.Sc. In Mechanical Engineering and the other holding a Ph.D. In Materials Engineering,
they designed custom production procedures and a team of professionals consisting of chemists and material scientists to develop answers for all 3D Printing needs for everyone in the community.
Since then, Oo-kuma materials is well known through 3D Printing hobbyists, enthusiasts and industrial customers all around the globe.
