Parts manufactured with the vat photopolymerization 3D printing method from various polymeric resins.


A 3D printer operating with the vat photopolymerization (VPP) 3D printing method for the manufacturing of various types of parts with different polymeric materials in resin form (liquid). This 3D printer supports the manufacture of parts with different resins, from soft to more robust ones. It also supports the manufacture of parts with biocompatible resins suitable for medical and healthcare applications, such as in dentistry among others. The VPP method provides better surface quality parts with more complex geometry and higher accuracy than the common 3D printing methods.
