The concept of resin 3D printing it a completely new learning experience to filament based 3D printing. This lesson covers all the key learning associated with how they work, where they are used and the benefits they bring to industry. Included in the lesson is a glossary of key terms used in resin 3D printing and a video demonstrating the SLA 3D printing process.

As well as learning the workflow involved with resin 3D printing, students learn scientific terms such as isotropic and anisotropy, along with the differences between SLA and DLP 3D printing. Learning topics also cover how the resin is solidified by UV light and how the layers are chemically bonded together rather than mechanically bonded with filament based 3D printer.

This is the first lesson in a 7 series lesson pack that includes 12 Fusion 360 tutorials based on designing jewellery for resin 3D printing. All the tutorials come with CAD videos to make the teaching as easy as possible and also to encourage independent learning  by students.
