Formlabs Tough Resin Cartridge V5 (1L)

 

Please Note: The V5 formulation of Tough Resin is identical to V4. If you have an existing resin tank with V4 you can safely use a V5 cartridge with it as V4 and V5 can be safely mixed. Please see the image gallery for the image change.

This Formlabs Tough Resin Cartridge is made for the Form 2 3D printer. To use with the Form 1+ please pour the resin out of the cartridge into the tank.

Formlabs’ Tough Resin is designed for applications in engineering, manufacturing and prototyping. It’s a super-strong, super-tough and impact-resistant resin that answers all the durability challenges engineers face with 3D printing.

We have seen hammers, spanners, knives and forks and even snap-fit joints made from Tough Resin and promotional videos published by Formlabs show its ability to withstand hammer blows with ease. The material is similar to ABS, but it absorbs more energy than its plastic counterpart making it more durable.

As a result, Formlabs’ Tough Resin for the Form 2 3D printer is best suited to high-impact and high-stress components and snap-fit joints and hinges, and it can also be machined after it’s been printed making it all the more versatile.

The downside to this insane strength and durability is a lack detail. It’s not the best resin for fine features or thin parts, or rigid or stiff prints. It also requires UV post-cure. But if you have the need for ABS-rivalling strength, then this resin is unrivalled in the Formlabs range.

Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some of the common questions we get for Formlabs Tough Resin Cartridge (1L), if you have any more questions, please don't hesitate to email web@goprint3d.co.uk or phone 01765 540 115.
Yes. You can reuse resin that is in your tank after a print, please do not return resin to the resin cartridge to avoid potential contamination. The Form 2 orange cover protects unused resin from ambient light.
Outside of the printer or resin cartridge, resin can be stored in the standard Resin Tank with the lid on for up to one month and in Resin Tank LT with the lid on for up to two months. Empty or use any excess resin before storing resin tanks for longer than this. Do not pour liquid resin back into the original container.

    Formlabs

    Founded in 2011, Massachusetts-based 3D printer manufacturer Formlabs are one of the leaders in the desktop-class stereolithography (SLA) 3D printer market.

    Since being founded, Formlabs has invested considerably in research and development to create and manufacture what is without doubt one of the finest SLA desktop 3D printers on the market - the Formlabs Form 2.

    Utilising stereolithography as opposed to the better-known fused filament fabrication 3D printing process, you can print high-resolution models that you wouldn’t necessarily be able to with an FFF 3D printer. This reality has put the Formlabs Form series of 3D printers in engineering, design, research, medical, dentistry, art and many other industries that require consistent, high resolution parts and models.

    Although the Form 2 is Formlabs’ latest 3D printer, they still manufacture its predecessor the Form 1+ which was announced in 2014. The Form 1+ has a 40 per cent smaller build volume than the Form 2 and it is slower and less precise. For this reason, the Form 2 is the best option for any application, and we recommend this model first and foremost. The gulf in class between the 1+ and 2 offers a tantalising glimpse into the future for Formlabs, though, with future Formlabs 3D printers expected to be even faster and more accurate.
