Sam, why have Photocentric developed a new Precision castable resin? We are driven by our customers’ feedback and application needs. After hearing the feedback on Precision Cast red, we knew we had to challenge ourselves to create something capable of producing highest quality parts, with the best possible casting results when used in direct investment casting – so that’s what we did!
What are the key benefits of using Daylight Precision Cast Violet? Team with Precision and you will have highly accurate, detailed printed and cast parts with a really nice smooth surface finish.
Will this new resin replace Daylight Precision Cast red? Yes, Daylight Precision Cast violet will replace Precision Cast red. We are no longer producing or stocking Daylight Precision Cast red.
What applications can Daylight Precision Cast violet be used for?
Detailed parts such as intricate jewellery pieces, dental casts and models for direct investment casting.
Do you have any tips and tricks for using Daylight Cast resin?
Follow the processing instructions available. Always shake the resin before use! And I really recommend using Photocentric Resin Cleaner when post-processing to rinse away all of that excess resin, especially when working with really intricate designs.
Will there be profiles provided? Absolutely. Users will need to delete Photocentric Studio and download again to get the latest profiles. These will be available in Studio from Wednesday 26th June.
Can I use the same casting process as available on the website? Yes you can.The casting process is exactly the same as before and available to download.
What resin are you now working on? I’m currently working on something completely different! We want to formulate the most flexible resin on the market, something we call “UltraElastic”. A few initial results have shown we can get up to 300% elongation, so things are looking promising!
