Eco-Friendly 3D Printing: Guide to Anycubic Plant-Based Resin

In the field of 3D printing, in conjunction with the resins used in MSLA 3D printers, their raw materials usually include petrochemical-derived compounds. Different resins have different formulations, and various additives exist to obtain specific material properties. For example, ABS-like resin has the high strength of ABS materials. As 3D printing technology continues to advance, materials that prioritize environmental sustainability are also being introduced to the market, such as plant-based resins. What are plant-based resins made from? Are plant-based truly environmentally friendly? Some 3D printing enthusiasts are looking forward to choosing more urgently environmentally friendly materials and are curious about plant-based resins. In this guide, we will introduce Anycubic plant-based resin, its features, functionality and usage.


What is Plant-Based Resin

Resin 3D printing enthusiasts, not only seek the accuracy of the prints and the efficiency of the print job, but also consider the stability of the print material and whether it is environmentally friendly. This involves the choice of materials used for 3D printing. Unlike regular resins or ABS-like resins with a strong odor, plant-based resins are formulated from soy extract or other bio-based sources, and are popular for being environmentally friendly and user-friendly.

Features of Anycubic Plant-Based Resin

Anycubic plant-based resin, in addition to its environmentally friendly properties, is also a material designed to enhance the user's printing experience. It offers low shrinkage and wide compatibility. The low shrinkage rate is crucial for users looking for consistent and high quality resin 3D printing. This makes it less risky for deformation and printing inconsistencies, and can provide more accurate printing and higher print quality. To ensure stable performance, shake well before use and avoid direct sunlight and dust.

Anycubic Plant-based Resin is sensitive to UV light from 355 to 410 nm and is compatible with most MSLA and DLP resin 3D printers. Whether it is used with the entry-level resin printer Photon Mono X 6Ks or the 12K high-precision fast printer Photon Mono M5s, there are surprisingly good 3D prints. Anycubic plant-based resin is available in a variety of colors and can be used in a wide variety of applications, such as miniatures, prototypes, and other creative scenarios.

Why Choose Anycubic Plant-Based Resin

  • Eco-friendly. Soy extract formula, BPA-free, benzene toxin-free, and irritating VOCs volatile-free.
  • Light odor. Odor much lower than standard resins, etc.
  • Stable, high performance, and delicate.
  • Balance between toughness and resilience.
  • Long conservation period. Up to 18 months.

Choosing plant-based resin for resin 3D printing jobs has several advantages, it is more environmentally friendly and low-odor, providing a smooth printing experience. However, it is important to note that even when using plant-based resins, ventilation and safety measures are still necessary. It is recommended to wear gloves and masks during use, maintain ventilation or use an air filtration system.

In Conclusion

Plant-based resins are an environmentally friendly choice and have low odor and no irritating odor, which is a major advantage of plant-based resins compared to other resins. Anycubic plant-based resin is available in five classic colors: gray, white, black, clear, and transparent green.
