DSM introduces Somos QuickGen 500, DSM’s engineered acrylate resin for DLP and LCD printing. DSM’s acrylate materials include elements specifically developed by DSM making them engineered resins vs. other acrylate resins on the market.
Somos QuickGen 500 is for functional and general prototyping needs. Used in DLP or LCD 3d printers, Somos QuickGen 500’s offers competitive print speeds and price point.
A colorless resin, Somos QuickGen 500 has a print speed 2x faster than similar materials. Easy to print, the resin prints with accuracy for functional and general prototypes, semi-flexible applications, applications with detailed features and – due to its translucency – fluid flow analysis.
Somos QuickGen 500 offers more flexible than other resins, but stiffer than elastomers, offering both flexibility and spring back. It performs consistently independent of how quickly force or strain are applied.
DSM worked with their ecosystem partner, San Francisco based company Origin, and the developer of Origin One, an open industrial 3D printer with transformative material development tools to develop and test Somos QuickGen 500. The combination of DSM’s materials science and Origin’s open system platform allowed for the rapid development of this new material.
