About Gray Resin Gray Resin, previously known as Prime Gray, is a very smooth resin that is easy to paint. The standard finish comes in Natural Gray (Air Force Gray), but in total there are nine finishing colors to choose from: white, black, blue, green, yellow, gray, red, orange and brown. However, you can also paint it yourself. We’ve got just the right tutorial for you here. Gray Resin is especially popular with scale modelers, architects and character artists. About Stereolithography Stereolithography, the technology behind most resin 3D prints, is often referred to as ‘the mother of all 3D printing technologies’ and is considered one of the most widely used techniques for producing high-quality 3D prints. Stereolithography printers work with razor-thin layers of liquid polymer that are cured by a computer-controlled UV laser which transforms the resin from a liquid to a solid state. You can learn more about this technology and see a video of a printer in action here. Stay tuned for more Stereolithography announcements throughout this summer! We will announce new deals and enhancements over the coming weeks.
