About this Episode

Our special guest, Chris, wonders what stereolithography 3D printing is, and Linh and Dimitri try their best to explain it… slowly…



  • The liquid used in stereolithography 3D printing is resin, which is cured by a UV laser.
  • The resin is not always colored.
  • The laser isn’t really heating up the plate that acts as the base, it is curing the resin in order to harden the liquid.
  • It doesn’t seem like resin 3D printing needs to have structural support.
