The resin material for Nobel 1.0 3D printers from the manufacturer XYZprinting is sold in these 500 ml bottles in packages of two. The bottles cannot be bought separately and cost about 120 to 130 € in total. This is not cheap although the Form1 + resin from Formlabs is priced at € 149 per liter which is a bit more expensive in the long-term.
Properties and color selection of the synthetic resin
XYZprinting sells five resin colors: crystal (clear), gray, white, blue and magenta. The color selection is easy to select is easily done before ordering via the button resin material for the Nobel 1.0 3D printer on Amazon.
The material is very clear and despite partial criticism online produces good qualitative results. The negative reviews are mainly due to the relatively sensitive and complex use of the Nobel 1.0 3D printer. Nevertheless, the material and the 3D printer are cheaper and more middle class priced than other SLA 3D printers.
When used correctly, you can get clear and detailed print results that are better than with FDM printers. You almost cannot see the print layers which are barely recognizable in comparison to FDM or FFF 3D printers. However, for this the printing time is extraordinarily longer compared to regular home printers using the FDM printing method.
Critical consideration of the synthetic resin
The bottles of resin have an NFC label on the bottom which the printer reads to verify the cartridges as original products by XYZprinting. In addition, the Nobel 1.0 tracks how much resin is left in the bottles which has advantages and disadvantages when using. The biggest disadvantage is that it does not allow using resin from other manufacturers. Consequently, one is forced to use the resin material for Nobel 1.0 3D printers from XYZprinting.
Conclusion on resin material for Nobel 1.0 3D printers
In summary, the resin material for Nobel 1.0 3D printers is not a premium high-end quality product. However, there are 2 good points for buying the material if you own and use a Nobel 1.0 SLA 3D printer.
For one, the resin is cheaper compared to other resin 3D printers. It sill remains expensive when looking at plastic filament for FDM devices. Secondly, the manufacturer XYZprinting designs their 3D printers to use proprietary materials. This strategy is similar to Apple products forcing to stay in a companies ecosystem. As a result, the company forces its customers to use their own products in the long-term. This means that owners have no other choice than to use the resin material for Nobel 1.0 3D printers by XYZprinting.
