About

 Tescale functional resin for SLA/DLP 3D Printing

3D printing is everywhere. It is easy to buy a $3,000 Form 2, but it is hard to afford $200/liter materials. The mission of Tescale is to offer the community with affordable, reliable, and high performance 3D printing resins. After three years of research on acrylates/methacrylates, we introduce three types of new resins for SLA, DLP or other UV photosensitive resin based printer. Our material has low shrinkage compared to the traditional photosensitive resin materials, which is ideal for high precision model such as fitting denture bases.

 Tescale resin provides fine details in print that are ideal for industrial parts, denture bases or jewelry. 

  PT series resins

PT series resins are designed for general prototyping purpose. PT resins provide high toughness, high resolution with very low shrinkage. There are 5 color choices: black, clear, gray, red and transparent yellow.

 WD resin

WD resin is designed for lost-wax casting. The name WD (WaxDrip) is from the behavior that the cured piece acts similar as wax when heated. It will drain and burn out of molds and leave almost no ash, thus allow for a high quality and resolution casting. WD resin is ideal for jewelry and dental applications.

 CR resin

CR resin is designed for professionals and hobbyist of ceramics. A blend of ceramic powder and photopolymer allows you obtain any shape in ceramic simply with a SLA/DLP 3D printer and a normal kiln. Compared to ceramic resin on market, our ceramic part is much denser and stronger, with better surface finish. CR resin is deal for high temperature and art design applications.  

 

 

 

 Unlike other ceramic resin on market that is porous after firing, our ceramic print is very dense and strong - it is translucent under light!

 Develop kit is designed for someone who want to tune their own resin, different color, different properties etc. The develop kit contains initiators, pigments, dyes, and ceramic powder for you to mix and play.

Machine supported: support all commercial SLA/DLP 3D printers. Tested on Formlabs and DLP printer.  

Use of Funds  

To make Tescale resin commercially available directly to the consumer, we need mass production and packaging.  This will require an investment in automated materials processing, bottling and packaging equipment.

Risks and challenges

The suppliers of our raw materials are on board and waiting to send us the quantity of materials that we need to mass produce Tescale resins once we know the quantities needed. Should there be a sudden shortage or delay in one of our essential ingredients, we have alternate supplier sources.
